Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, has said that a Brexit deal is now “touch and go” following his meetings with other European leaders. The Prime Minister had previously effectively guaranteed a deal during the Conservative Party leadership by saying that “there’s a million to one chance of a no deal”.
Donald Tusk, the President of the European Council, had said yesterday on Twitter:
“Tomorrow I meet PM @BorisJohnson. I hope that he will not like to go down in history as “Mr. No Deal”. The EU is ready to listen to operational, realistic ideas acceptable to all Member States including Ireland, if and when the UK government is ready to put them on the table.”
