EU: UK biggest loser of no-deal Brexit

Monday, 19. August 2019 12:45

The United Kingdom would be the biggest loser if it left the European Union without an agreement, European Commission spokesperson Natasha Bertaud said on Monday.

Speaking to reporters in Brussels, Bertaud stated: "The EU is prepared for all eventualities, a no-deal Brexit is never the EU's preferred scenario." She added that "the EU sees no need for further measures to prepare for a no-deal Brexit."

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson insists he will take his country out of the EU on October 31, with or without a deal, but Leader of the Opposition Jeremy Corbyn said earlier in the day that he is prepared to do everything to stop a no-deal Brexit.
