France says chaotic no-deal Brexit probable

Varadkar Johnson negotiations UK, Ireland leaders agree Brexit deal 'possible'
Jean Garcia | 11 October, 2019, 19:57

In a joint statement issued after the meeting, the two leaders said that agreeing on a deal "is in everybody's interest".

"We've sat down with the European Union, we're going to be sitting down with them today, we've sat down with the Irish and it was always seen as Republic of Ireland being the key stumbling block", Williamson replied. "I think it's possible for us to come to an agreement, to have a treaty agreed.by the end of October", he said.

Education minister Gavin Williamson restated the government's line that Britain would leave the EU on October 31, come what may, telling ITV: "We need to see the European Union shift". Technical talks on an agreement to govern Britain's EU divorce are stalled, just days before what had been billed as a last chance European summit.

Speaking to reporters at the airport, Varadkar later said the meeting was "very positive", suggesting it would be a "short pathway, rather than a long one". But he cautioned there could still be obstacles along the way, after a more than three-year game of high-stakes political snakes and ladders.

The pound's rise since Thursday is the biggest two-day gain since before the Brexit vote in 2016. But let's assume that Boris Johnson's deal (whatever it is) does not succeed - either because the negotiations break down or the European Parliament or House of Commons refuse to pass it.

Government 'nowhere near' target of halving child obesity
If the government failed to take such actions, they would be sending out a message that they did not put children first, she said. Dame Sally suggested BBC Radio 4's On the original time programme: "Now we hang to up our vaccination rates.

Johnson and Varadkar met at Thornton Manor, a venue more commonly used for luxury weddings than discussing worldwide divorce terms.

The politician began the interview by stating it was in the interest of the United Kingdom and the EU to get a deal "on both sides" to avoid Ireland being left to forge it's own customs union separate from the rest of the nation.

The UK presented alternative plans last week which would see Northern Ireland remains in the customs union for goods and agri-food products with physical checks to be conducted away from the border.

Britain's economy shrank in August, official data showed Thursday, but analysts say a better-than-expected July is expected to help it avoid recession.

The Cabinet minister said that no one community in Northern Ireland would have a veto over Brexit proposals.

"A no-deal Brexit will never be the choice of the EU", Tusk said, but he also added that "there is no guarantee of success and the time is practically up".
