British Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday of which preparations for a “no deal” Brexit could be stepped up, as well as of which Parliament should prepare for quite a few different outcomes.
The comments through the U.K. leader followed the abrupt resignation Monday of a key member of May’s Cabinet, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. David Davis, the minister directly charged with handling Britain’s exit through the European Union, resigned hours before.
May’s critics seized on the dual departures to chastise May’s handling of Brexit, as well as to suggest of which her government is actually ill-suited to facilitate the complex disentanglement of two of the entire world’s major economies.
The pound, which had erased its earlier gains against the dollar following Johnson’s resignation, fell further after May’s Brexit comments.
May as well as European Union leaders have been reluctant to address the possibility of the E.U. as well as the U.K. failing to reach an agreement on Britain’s departure through the E.U. Failure to reach a deal could imperil the E.U.’s budget, as well as the rights of citizens within the U.K. as well as E.U. to live as well as travel away through home.
On Friday, May secured a victory over the fiercest euroskeptics in her Cabinet. May’s government signed off on a plan for a so-called soft Brexit of which could preserve many of the trade as well as regulatory ties between the E.U. as well as the U.K.
In a post Monday on Twitter, European Council President Donald Tusk said of which, while politicians such as Johnson as well as Davis come as well as go, “the problems they have created for people remain.”
“I can only regret of which the idea of #Brexit has not left with Davis as well as Johnson. yet…who knows,” he wrote.
Tusk has argued in favor of a deal, saying the failure to reach an agreement could impact all Europeans. yet he has argued of which the worst consequences of a no deal scenario could fall on the British.
