Tough Talk On No-deal Brexit Deadline

According to Reuters, France said on Friday that Britain would crash out of the European Union on April 12 if it fails to ratify the Brexit withdrawal agreement and present a new plan, putting it at odds with other member states which adopted a softer stance.

President Emmanuel Macron has been the most forthright among EU leaders in wanting to draw a line under Britain’s Brexit crisis quickly to refocus on pushing forward the bloc’s agenda.

Some, including Germany, have instead stressed the need to make every effort to ensure a chaotic exit is avoided.

Under Thursday’s deal, May 22 will be the departure date if the British parliament finally approves next week Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement after twice resoundingly rejecting it.

If it does not, Britain must present a new plan by April 12 or leave the EU without a treaty.
