UK Brexit Minister Stephen Barclay told BBC today that the government is working on what to ask from the EU to get the deal approved in the parliament. He noted that “the EU don’t want to be in a situation of having no deal – that would have a big impact not just on the Irish economy but other economies, the Dutch economy – so it’s in both sides’ interest to have a deal.”
Separately, German Minister for European Affairs Michael Roth expressed disappointment on UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s statement yesterday. He tweeted “Where is the plan B? Just asking for a friend…” German Justice Minister Katarina Barley also said she was “disappointed” and “that’s not the way forward”.
