Brexit deal ‘will favour EU’ David Davis warns as talks set to resume

31 Oct

Nathan Oxley complained: “David Davis couldn’t negotiate his way out of a cardboard box.”

Mr Davis said he believed Britain would agree some kind of basic deal with the EU, even in the “very improbable” eventuality that they fail to agree a trade deal.

He insisted, even if Britain failed to strike a formal trade deal, both sides were likely to have agreements in areas such as aviation that would allow planes to fly between Britain and the EU.

It is “not impossible, but very, very improbable” that Britain and the EU will fail to agree a Brexit deal, he said. 

Mr Davis told the peers: ”Whatever happens we will have a basic deal without the bits we really want.”

And he revealed the next round of negotiations would take place in Brussels next week and he would seek an “intensification” of the discussions.
