No-deal Brexit 'would entail substantial costs'

  • The IMF expects Britain's economy to grow by 1.5% in both 2018 and 2019 if a broad Brexit agreement is struck

Tusk also warns that a "no-deal scenario" remains "quite possible", but finishes his letter by saying: "If we all act responsibly, we can avoid a catastrophe".

Mr Johnson has always been critical of Mrs May's Chequers plan, resigning in July alongside then-Brexit Secretary David Davis.

The EU's backstop proposal has been rejected by the UK because it effectively creates a customs border in the Irish sea, while the UK's plan was rejected by the UK because it was temporary and applied to the whole of the UK, rather than only Northern Ireland.

Mr Johnson has backed proposals by the pro-Brexit European Research Group that physical checks can be done away from the border, without keeping the United Kingdom or Northern Ireland tied to EU customs rules.

"I think Parliament will vote for a deal because I think people will see the importance of a deal that maintains a good trading relationship with the European Union but also maintains good cooperation in other areas, but gives us the freedom to take the benefits and opportunities of Brexit", she said in an interview broadcast Monday. As part of the EU, Britain now enjoys the freedom of goods, services, money and people to move across borders with 27 other countries in the region.

Brussels' current proposal is to effectively keep Northern Ireland in the EU customs union until a comprehensive trade deal with the United Kingdom is agreed, something that the DUP and political parties in Scotland have rejected. They don't want a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.

Former Liberal Democrat leader Sir Nick Clegg told BBC Radio 4's Today programme it was an "insult to the intelligence of British voters" for the prime minister to say it was a "choice between either the Chequers fudge or a cataclysmic cliff edge".

But Theresa May told the BBC that if Parliament does not ratify her Chequers plan “I think that the alternative to that will be having no deal”

Khan said Britain was now facing either a bad deal or a no-deal Brexit, both of which were "incredibly risky".

He's meeting with the Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez and the Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell. "What we will be doing is putting forward a set of rules for people from the European Union and people from outside the European Union", she said.

The People's Vote campaign, meanwhile, claimed a "fresh wave" of 18-year-olds becoming eligible to vote was "transforming the dynamics of the Brexit debate" because they mostly back staying in the EU.

May will travel to a crucial summit in Salzburg this week to sell her plan to the EU27 leaders.

The news comes after Michael Gove, the Environment Secretary, said over the weekend that an independent United Kingdom and its elected future leader could "choose to alter" the nation's relationship with the Brussels bloc after Brexit.

May's comments on the issue this week mark the six-month countdown to Britain's formal exit from the European Union on 29 March, 2019.

BBC Panorama, Inside No 10: Deal or No Deal? is on Monday 17 September at 20:30 BST on BBC One as part of a week of in-depth coverage across the BBC to mark Brexit: Six Months to Go.
