A SECRET document has revealed the EU is demanding three major commitments from the UK before beginning fresh talks on Brexit.
According to a memo leaked to the Sunday Times, Brussels chiefs want the UK to continue to contribute to the EU budget, new measures on citizens’ rights, and guarantee backstop arrangements to avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland. Donald Tusk is to call a summit of EU leaders on April 10. The EC president has warned the UK must come up with a clear “way forward” to halt a disorderly exit.
To prevent this, Theresa May will need a new plan to push her deal through the Commons, which has to date been voted down on three separate occasions.
One un-named official speaking to the Sunday Times said they doubt the UK will be able to deliver.
They said: “It depends on whoever is in No 10 next week.”
A spokesman for the European Commission said: “A no-deal scenario on April 12 is now a likely scenario.
