Tusk: EU prepared for every Brexit scenario
The European Union is prepared for every Brexit scenario, European Council President Donald Tusk said.
"A few days before the vote in the House of Commons, it is becoming more and more clear that this deal is the best possible — in fact, the only possible one," the European Council President said, ruling out any renegotiation by the EU if the British parliament votes down last Sunday’s deal on December 11.
"If this deal is rejected in the Commons, we are left with ... an alternative: no deal or no Brexit at all. I want to reassure you that the EU is prepared for every scenario,"Reuters cited Tusk as saying.
Tusk will chair an EU summit two days after the British parliament votes on a deal that May has also said is the best London can get. Britain is due to leave the EU on March 29, although some campaigners hope the withdrawal can be stopped.
