One of the most outspoken supporters of Brexit, Jacob Rees-Mogg has said that Britain is heading towards no deal on exiting from the European Union.
In effect, that would be no deal on Brexit and the likelihood of a hard border being implemented once again passing into or out of Northern Ireland from the Republic.
Mr Rees-Mogg said that leaving on World Trade Organisation terms was now likely.
Speaking on LBC, Mr Rees-Mogg said: “I think we are heading to WTO and I think WTO is nothing to be frightened of.”
“I think we should carry on negotiating until the end.
“I don’t think we necessarily need the theatrics of walking away, but the truth is that WTO is likely to be all that they will offer us.”
On the flipside, yesterday the EU’s Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said that he was still open to a deal being done as long as the Northern Irish border question has answered with a “workable” solution.
