The New European Commission Vice President Valdis Dombrovskis has said No Deal Maybe a real outcome due to insufficient progress in negotiations.
Mr Dombrovskis said: “There are many outstanding issues.
“Progress on a number of key EU asks so far is not sufficient.
“So we would need to intensify negotiations substantially if we are to reach a successful outcome.
“The alternative of a no-deal Brexit is not appealing, but we cannot exclude it.”
With these comment from Valdis Dombrovskis and the fast-approaching deadline of October 15th, the Commission President is still hopeful of a deal yet states; the Internal Market Bill has “distracted very strongly” the two side away from finding common ground in current negotiations.
The commission president said: “Where the UK is concerned, we want an agreement, and I think the attempt to violate the withdrawal agreement distracted very strongly from the ongoing negotiations. This was an unpleasant surprise.
“And therefore it is time now that our British friends restore the trust in the validity of a signature under treaty, and that we keep on going, focused to negotiate because time is running out.”
Even though Boris Johnson is pushing the Internal Market Bill, this hasn’t so far made the EU back down. The EU still demand the legislation be removed. However, so far, Boris has stayed steady and steadfast in his efforts to get this passed through Parliament.
Even though negotiations continue, significant gaps remain in place in critical areas like fishing and state aid.
