BRUSSELS believes the UK-EU trade talks can resume again this week – despite Boris Johnson already telling Brits to prepare for No Deal.
It comes after the Prime Minister announced he would walk away unless the EU fundamentally changed its stance.
Earlier, Michael Gove said the door would remain “ajar” for talks to resume and Michael Barnier and other Eurocrats believe they’ll be able to break the Brexit impasse.
Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator, is expected to hold a video conference call with his British counterpart David Frost on Monday afternoon to discuss the structure of future talks.
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.
Around four weeks still remain when there could be negotiations – before a deal would need to be ready for the ratification process in Westminster and the EU parliament.
