BREXIT: 3 MORE YEARS..
May plans EU deal by Wednesday
NIGEL Farage looks very pleased as he bags himself a seat on the Brexit battle bus ahead of a Leave Means Leave rally yesterday.
The MEP and former UKIP leader spoke at the event in Torquay, Devon, alongside fellow Brexiteer, Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg.
But with Britain and Brussels deadlocked over Brexit and the deadline looming large, it’s fair to say their plan is a little Fawlty... and the DUP, which is propping up her government. DUP leader Arlene Foster said: “The UK is one nation. There should not be international-style borders within it.” A No10 insider said: “There must be a UK-wide solution. The PM will not accept carving off part of the UK for political expediency.” The EU’s chief Brexit negoti- ator Michel Barnier will tell Mrs May he is prepared to extend transition to December 31, 2021.
She will push for an earlier date – but their both accepting the same cut-off is the most positive sign yet. A source said: “The PM would never trap the UK in a backstop permanently.”
If Wednesday’s talks fail then Britain will face a disastrous no-deal Brexit.
