‘No deal Brexit most likely outcome’

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has warned that the UK faces crashing out of the European Union without a deal if Prime Minister Theresa May continues along her current trajectory.


The UK is preparing to leave the EU by the 29th March 2019 but talks have grind to a halt due to the Irish border issue. In order to prevent a hard border in Ireland, the EU have insisted that there must be a backstop.

Nicola Sturgeon told the Scottish Parliament today: “I am increasingly concerned, literally with every day that passes, that the prospect of no deal is becoming ever greater. And as things stand just now, and we're in a fluid situation, I think no deal might actually be the most likely outcome, and that is deeply concerning.

“Given that we're two and half years on from the vote, five months away from exit, it is staggering incompetence that a government has allowed the situation to get to this stage.

“I think Brexit is frankly shaping up to the biggest failure of government policy and handling of a situation that any of us have seen maybe in our entire lifetimes.”
A massive 62% of people in Scotland voted to remain within the EU.

On Saturday 7th October, 100,000 marched on the streets of Edinburgh demanding an independence referendum.

Despite many observers now suggesting that Theresa May's deal is unlikely to pass through the House of Commons, the Prime Minister remains positive.

She told journalists "What we have put on the table is a good deal, it’s a deal which retains the union of the United Kingdom, our constitutional integrity, it’s a deal that provides for no hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland, protects jobs and enables us to have a good trading relationship with Europe and also the rest of the world."
