Crunch talks continue while politicians take to the Sunday political shows
- Tory grandees’ fury over Johnson’s ‘nationalist’ no-deal Brexit
- UK papers paint grim picture of possible no-deal Brexit
- Analysis: The EU’s red lines were clear in 2016
The UK has worked “very hard” at a technical level during the recent negotiations in Brussels, the Foreign Secretary has said, though he argued that there needs to be political “willing” to secure a Brexit trade deal. Dominic Raab has told Sky News’ Sophy Ridge On Sunday programme:
I called in to check in with our team in Brussels, they’ve worked incredibly hard.
You remember the PM has made clear we want to leave no stone unturned, so we’ve been at it very hard at the working technical level, with all the usual jousting of positions.
Today is the day the UK will find out whether or not its leaders have managed to negotiate a deal to replace its largest trading partnership in less than three weeks.
Talks have been going on over night in Brussels and Boris Johnson is due to speak with the European commission’ president Ursula von der Leyen later on Sunday.
