Political commentator Harry Cole claimed leaked documents that revealed the UK Government preparing for a no-deal Brexit situation had altered the atmosphere between the UK and EU. He said that leaking of those documents puts pressure on both sides to agree that a trade deal while talking on TalkRadio.
“It puts stress on the divide in Brussels and on France.”
“This is due to the way that they are linked in Dover and Calais.”
“It pressures the EU to really sort out this and get a deal and make sure that this kind of thing does not occur.”
“In case a no-deal Brexit did happen the concept; it is just us that is going to be affected by it is also crap.”
Mr Cole ignored the claims that the Government was looking at ways to reverse Brexit from happening and stop it.
He said: “Absolutely not, all you have to do is listen to some of those public statements from David Frost, Michael Gove or Boris Johnson.”
“They are all making it very clear.”
“In actuality, it’s an issue of treaty law that we’re leaving on the 31st of December.”
“That’s written into European law, the treaty and to British law.”
“The concept that there is a backsliding on that is wrong.”
“Hence why they are cranking up the dial-up on training behind the scenes because it is a deadline.”
Mr Cole reflected about the growing pressure on Boris Johnson’s Government to prepare for any eventuality.
He explained: “It is not like last time in which the Remainer Parliament managed to hijack things and induces Boris Johnson to request an extension.”
“All those games are gone now, and I don’t miss those days.”
“It is composed into the law so if nothing happens now, no agreement has been forged, on 1st of January trade barriers will appear, tariffs will go up, and we will trade on World Trade Organisation rules.”
It comes amid files which indicate the Cabinet has drawn up emergency plans to protect the UK in the event of a no-deal Brexit coincides.
