EU's Juncker tells Britain: no-deal Brexit will hurt you the most

EU's Juncker tells Britain: no-deal Brexit will hurt you the most”

VIENNA (Reuters) - A no-deal Brexit would hurt Britain more than the rest of Europe no matter how much Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government pretends otherwise, outgoing European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said in remarks published on Saturday.

Mr Lister also said that compensation would be considered "on a case-by-case basis" for those who had already booked leave.

There are some news wires going around the block with reports in the Times and Telegraph addressing the concerns of a hard Brexit and Boris Johnson's fragile setting as the new PM.

Just 29 per cent said he should step down so another government could be formed to stop a no-deal Brexit.

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell has said Labour would attempt to form a government in the 14 days following a confidence vote but ruled out Labour backing any unity government candidate, such as Ken Clarke or Dominic Grieve.

"The Lib Dems are clearly willing to watch the economy crash before they will put their party interests to one side".

In his letter to Sir Mark, Mr Corbyn said such a course of action would be "unprecedented" and "unconstitutional".

Corbyn asked Sedwill to confirm that, if Britain is scheduled to exit the EU during a general election campaign, then Johnson's government must seek an extension to [the EU Treaty's] article 50 - after which time an incoming administration would be allowed to take a decision on Brexit.

Whether a parliamentary vote of no-confidence in the government would prove successful is another matter, however, but with a tiny majority of just one, it's entirely possible Johnson may be forced into calling an election, almost two years earlier than now scheduled.

Prime Minister Johnson has pledged to take the United Kingdom out of the European Union on October 31st in any circumstances, telling the Civil Service to make preparing for a no-deal "top priority" this week, in the wake of the prime minister establishing a no deal "War Cabinet".
