Brexit: How ‘unlikely’ is a deal by Oct. 31st?

Published on October 9, 2019 by

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has held fresh talks on Brexit with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar. Varadkar said that big gaps remain between the UK and EU’s positions on Brexit, raising more doubts about reaching a divorce deal by the UK’s October 31st deadline to leave the European Union. Earlier, a source close to Boris Johnson told British media that Chancellor Merkel called a Brexit deal “overwhelmingly unlikely.” That leak has prompted EU Council President Donald Tusk to warn Mr. Johnson that Brexit should not become a “blame game,” and some critics have questioned whether Merkel in fact used those words.
