THE UK government warn it could be “several years” before Brexit trade talks can start again.
A source close to David Frost’s negotiating team launched an attack on the EU for putting domestic political concerns ahead of efforts to strike a free trade deal with the UK.
Senior Conservative MPs now argue that because the EU has negotiated in ‘bad faith’ the Withdrawal Agreement should be ditched in a bid to ensure the UK is free from the threat of Brussels interference.
It comes as former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown has warned that the UK is heading for a double cliff edge of Brexit and an economic collapse caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Addressing a Welsh Labour Party event, Mr Brown said: “I think we’ve got two cliff edges coming, if it is possible to go over two cliff edges at once.”
