When talks between Britain and the European Union resumed in Brussels on Monday, Dynaming Street dialed rhetoric about the outcome of the deal and ressed that British talks were working for a deal.
“As the prime minister himself has said, it is clear that no deal is possible. But we are clear that we will continue to work and hope to reach a free trade agreement. That is what the Prime Minister said in his call to Ursula von der Lane yesterday, “said Boris Johnson, a spokesman for the PM.
Dealing Street later gave an explanation, and Johnson still believes no deal is the most likely outcome. But the decision to continue talks without a new deadline was seen as an indication that both sides in London and Brussels were moving towards an agreement.
If an agreement is approved, it must be approved by the European Parliament and MPs in Westminster are expected to vote on the implementation legislation for any agreement. A spokesman for the Prime Minister said he would confirm whether such a vote would take place or whether MPs would be asked to approve the agreement before it comes into force.
“The home business I normally start is not going to be emptied in advance. We are confident that we have time to do whatever needs to be done in Parliament, ”he said.
Labor leader Carey Stormer said any vote on the Brexit deal would work in the national interest, despite his prime minister’s record of being “over-promised and undelivered”. He said Labor would charge Mr. Johnson for promising to complete Brexit.
“A deal is in the national interest, not a deal – we seem to be at a crossroads on the road,” he said.
Sir Care said both sides need to move within the next two days to make the deal possible but do not believe the talks on the fish quota will fail. Michael Russell, Brexit secretary to the Scottish government, said the Scottish National Party would not support any deal to bring Johnson back.
“I doubt any deal will be enough for Scotland; We voted against it. [What] What we are doing is saying that this is absolutely ridiculous. Look at it even in this moment, and imagine what a big mistake you are making. “Why on earth would we first vote for a Brexit solution that is completely wrong for Scotland,” he said.
As expectations of an imminent deal rose in Westminster, senior Conservative MP Roger Gayle, who voted against Brexit in 2016, said Johnson should resign if he failed to reach an agreement with the European Union.
“If the agreement is not accepted, the prime minister will fail. I believe his position cannot be accepted then. Then one gentleman will pave the way for another to give the country the leadership it needs. That’s what David Cameron did when he failed to get a referendum, “said David Cook, chief of The Christian Science Monitor’s Washington bureau.
