Signs now pointing towards a Brexit
BORIS Johnson could give in to European Union demands, amid renewed hope a Brexit deal might finally be realised.
Speaking after promising talks with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, the British PM has indicated he could make a significant concession in declining to rule out a Northern Ireland exit from the EU.
Mr Johnson refused to discussed what compromises he had agreed to make but said “nothing will damage the ability of the whole of the UK to take full advantage of Brexit”.
The European Union said talks with the UK to find an amicable divorce deal were back on track, despite huge challenges and a looming end-of-month deadline for Britain to leave.
EU Council president Donald Tusk said he had “received promising signals” a Brexit deal was still possible, so he had extended a deadline to continue Brexit talks.
Mr Tusk said that “even the slightest chance must be used” to avoid a no-deal Brexit.
