After the prime ministers defeat last night the European Council President, Donald Tusk hinted in a tweet that the UK should stay in the EU.
Tusk said in a tweet. “If a deal is impossible, and no-one wants no deal, then who will finally have the courage to say what the only positive solution is?”
MPs voted in Parliament by 432 votes to 202 to reject May’s deal, 118 of the ‘against’ votes came from Theresa Mays own Conservative party.
Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn cast more doubt over Brexit by tabling a vote of no confidence. Perhaps the European Union has similar thoughts as the European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker said, “I urge the United Kingdom to clarify its intentions as soon as possible. Time is almost up.”
Juncker added, “The risk of a disorderly withdrawal of the United Kingdom has increased with this evenings vote.”
France’s President Macron said, “The pressure is mainly on them.”
Adding, “We will have to negotiate a transition period with them because the British cannot afford to no longer have planes taking off or landing at home.”
The German Finance Minister, Olaf Scholz said yesterday, “We are well prepared, but a hard Brexit would be the least attractive choice, for the EU and the UK.”
