EU negotiatio­ns must bring a deal


LAST December the Prime Minister told voters he had an oven-ready deal with the EU. Just 10 months later he tells us he has finished the talks without a deal.

We are now on the cusp of a bad trade deal or no trade deal – either of which will hit jobs and businesses hard, just when Britain is already suffering from the biggest economic crisis for 300 years. The Prime Minister must get back around the table and bring back a deal that protects jobs and livelihood­s, already hit by the coronaviru­s crisis. To do otherwise would be a derelictio­n of his duty as Prime Minister.
