Could Britain leave the EU without agreements, that would be the responsibility of the United Kingdom. A so-called no-deal brexit is becoming more likely every day, EU chief negotiator for the Brexit Michel Barnier warned Tuesday morning at a conference in Brussels. Under no circumstances will Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal in principle be renegotiated with the EU, Barnier said.
According to Barnier, in the event of a no-deal Brexit from London, the EU will demand compliance with financial obligations, rights for EU citizens in the country and agreements across the Irish border. The British House of Commons was unable to find a majority on Monday evening about an alternative to the May-Brussels deal.
On April 10, EU leaders meet in Brussels to hear from May how the British think they are going. The deferred Brexit deadline will expire on 12 April. If London wants to postpone the Brexit again, it can only be discussed if the country holds a new referendum or elections or in the event of a “different political process,” according to Barnier, without specifying exactly what he meant by the latter . During a possible longer delay, the future relationship will also not be negotiated, he said.
