UK PM will fight Brexit delay, campaign for 'no-deal', says report

He said that "people were thinking in Britain: "oh yeah, we can do a no-deal and then we go sitting around the table and we are going to talk about a future relationship and everything will be fine".

Seven in ten said they would blame Remain-supporting MPs specifically, while almost two-thirds (63%) said the European Commission would share some of the blame.

"There are some fundamental objectives that haven't changed for the past three years and we need them guaranteed", he told RTE news.

"I think it's going to be very hard to secure an argument by next week quite frankly".

Cherry said: "We have forced the Tory government to concede that the prime minister will comply with the law, and promise to send a letter requesting a Brexit extension and not frustrate the goal of the Benn Act. And of course it isn't really".

Johnson talked to his Irish counterpart Leo Varadkar for 40 minutes.

The source said Merkel made it clear that Brexit can not happen 'without leaving Northern Ireland behind in a customs union and in full alignment forever '.

The Republic of Ireland remains a member of the European Union, and the bloc desires to place the beginning borders between Ireland and Northern Ireland established by the Correct Friday peace deal in April 1998.

"At stake is the future of Europe and the United Kingdom as well as the security and interests of our people", Mr Tusk said.

The opposition said Johnson was trying to apportion blame for the failure of the negotiating process. "In a no-deal Brexit, Tory Brexiteers will have free rein to water down employment rights and workers will lose access to the European Court and the Charter of Fundamental Rights, which the IWGB has relies on to defend its members".

Unusually, Downing Street then provided a readout of what Merkel allegedly said, provoking an incendiary tweet from EU Council President Donald Tusk.

Mr Sassoli later told the BBC's Newsnight programme: "Angela Merkel's opinions must be taken seriously".

"There could be problems with economy, security... there could also be a catastrophe", he said.

Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union at the end of the month.

Northern Ireland Secretary Julian Smith tweeted that "any threat on withdrawing security co-operation with Ireland is unacceptable".

The president of the European Parliament has told Sky News that a no-deal Brexit could be a "catastrophe" and Boris Johnson needs to "feel this responsibility" as the clock ticks towards the deadline for Britain's EU exit.

Referring to Mr Johnson's plans to replace the contentious border backstop, Mr Coveney said: "We thought that offer was a big step forward in a number of areas, but clearly, particularly in the customs area and in the consent and consultation area in the context of Northern Ireland, there was significantly more work needed".

"It was a very useful clarifying moment in all sorts of ways".

Merkel stipulated to Johnson that a deal could not occur unless Northern Ireland were to remain within the customs union.

"This government will not negotiate further so any delay would be totally pointless", the source was quoted as saying.

Scotland's top civil court is due to rule Wednesday whether someone else - possibly a judge - could sign an extension request if Johnson fails to follow parliament's order to ask for one if there is still no deal by October 19.

Johnson, in the meantime, has urged the bloc to compromise.
