Get ready – No deal Brexit likely as all sides step up preparations

A no-deal Brexit is looking increasingly likely as UK Prime Minister has failed to persuade more members of her own party or the DUP to support deal with the EU.

The DUP has ruled out support for the unpopular deal and PM May’s Conservative party MP’s are increasingly in favour of a no-deal break with Brussels.

For his part the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said it would be prudent to step up no-deal Brexit preparations.

In case of a no-deal Brexit the Irish border will become an external EU frontier meaning that Brussels will insist on a hard border being enforced.

Meanwhile, a thousand police officers from England and Scotland are preparing for a hard border in Ireland as an auxiliary force to the PSNI will be needed in the case of such a scenario.

Prime Minister May delayed a vote on her deal as it was apparent it would fail and has sought greater concessions and renewed negotiations with the EU in the hopes of garnering enough support to force it through parliament.

EU leaders however, have completely ruled out any new negotiations or reopening of talks.
