'Special place in hell' for no-plan Brexiteers, says EU's Tusk

John Allan, president of the CBI, said: "If the United Kingdom leaves the EU (European Union) without a deal, we could cease overnight to enjoy the benefits of tariff-free trade with, and preferential access to, markets of fundamental importance for British products and services, from Japan to Turkey".

"But we should bear in mind that the threat of no deal is not a threat that the European Union is making". This could cause serious economic havoc.

UBS has received approval from a London court to move up to 32 billion euros ($36.44 billion) in assets from Britain to Germany as part of plans to keep business in the European Union after Brexit. Tusk has stressed that in the past.

Mrs Leadsom said: "I said its a sign of a charming fellow". He also seemed at last to be coming to terms with Brexit, saying it's time to acknowledge there's "no effective leadership for Remain".

"There is no room for speculation here".

"The EU is first and foremost a peace project".

"Clearly the pressure is beginning to mount in Brussels, we've seen that today from some of the response particularly from the President Donald Tusk", she said.

Varadkar, whose government has stressed the importance of maintaining an open border between Ireland and Northern Ireland after Brexit, thanked Tusk.

The Brexit negotiator echoed comments by Angela Merkel earlier in the week when he said Wednesday, "it is the UK's obligation to now propose a positive and viable proposal on the way forward", a somewhat contradictory position given his and others refusal to renegotiate. He laughed and nodded.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid described Mr Tusk as "out of order", while the comments were labelled a "completely outrageous insult" by leading Tory Brexiteer Peter Bone.

The former No. 2 at 10 Downing, George Osborne, now a newspaper editor, tweeted, "negotiations going well then".

The remarks were raised in the House by Tory MP Peter Bone, who branded them an "insult" to the British people.

Donald Tusk has slammed those who campaigned for Brexit.

For weeks, they have been begging May to tell them - exactly - what she wants amended in the withdrawal agreement, so that it can pass her divided House of Commons.

The Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which has propped up May's government since she lost her parliamentary majority in a 2017 snap election, said it wanted to get a deal agreed but the border backstop had to be replaced.
