A no-deal Brexit 'could happen', says France's former Europe Minister
France's former Europe Minister says a no-deal Brexit "could happen" as the EU is struggling to build a partnership with the UK.
Speaking to Sophy Ridge, Nathalie Loiseau said she was "neither pessimistic nor optimistic" about a future Brexit deal and wanted to remind the UK that EU member countries "were not there to be adversaries".
Boris Johnson says businesses should prepare for a no-deal Brexit with the EU saying it won't accept a deal at any price.
So what happens next? Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday #Britain was ready to walk away from post-#Brexit trade talks with a "no-deal" unless the European Union shifted its position. He accused the #EU of failing to negotiate seriously and said Britain should "get ready" to operate on stripped-down World Trade Organization rules from January, "unless there is a fundamental change of approach" from Brussels. FRANCE 24's Bénédicte Paviot tells us more. The UK prime minister says it is time his country prepared to break away from the European Union with no trade deal.
With the Brexit transition period ending on January 1, Boris Johnson told Brussels there is no point continuing negotiations unless it changes course.
EU leaders say they are willing to keep trying.
