Who is to blame if UK and EU will fail to reach a BREXIT DEAL?

Updated on

Updates: Boris Johnson is in full campaign to sell the new Brexit deal to MPs ahead of a Commons vote on Saturday, but every opposition party and even DUP announced plans to vote against his deal.

Some EU leaders, like Angela Merkel announced Thursday their support for extending Brexit beyond 31 October if the new deal is rejected by the Commons, while others like the Irish PM, clearly stated that plab B is NO deal.

The sterling gained value all week under prospects of a new Brexit deal and fell quickly on Thursday afternoon when it soon dawned on investors that there was no guarantee of the U.K. Parliament backing the agreement.

Reminder: EU and UK reached a draft deal on Thursday, pushing the next crucial decision to the UK Parliament.

Last week, a Downing Street source said the German chancellor made clear in the telephone conversation that a deal was “overwhelmingly unlikely” unless Northern Ireland was kept in the EU customs territory.

The exact content of the conversation was not confirmed by the British or the German counterparts but there is general opinion that a Brexit deal will not be reached in time.

Pound Sterling has suffered a sharp loss of value against Euro and USD amidst reports that talks between the EU and UK have effectively been killed off by Germany's Angela Merkel.

The President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, twitted in reply :

“Boris Johnson what’s at stake is not winning some stupid blame game. At stake is the future of Europe and the UK as well as the security and interests of our people. You don’t want a deal, you don’t want an extension, you don’t want to revoke, quo vadis?” stated Donald Tusk.

Earlier on Monday, the news outlets published a memo showing that Downing Street is preparing for Brexit talks to collapse this week, as a Number 10 source revealed the party intends to fight the next election on a no-deal platform.

The memo widely believed to be a text message sent by Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson's chief advisor, shows that Downing Street warns negotiations will "probably end this week" and that if the deal dies "it won't be revived".

The EU will decide at the end of the week whether a Brexit deal is going to be possible, French President Emmanuel Macron has told Boris Johnson.

President Macron said talks should now proceed swiftly to see if an agreement could "respect" EU principles.

On the other hand the official position from NO 10 is that

“The PM believes that we have set out a fair and sensible compromise, and we are now looking to the EU to match the compromises that the UK has made.” stated the UK Gov. spoke person.

Also Boris Johnson blamed the legislation passed by the opposition MPs in the Commons stating that it will force him to "surrender" to the European Union in the Brexit negotiations.

Earlier, in September, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has warned that if the UK leaves without a deal, Britain will be entirely to blame. The EU chief said that he had been working tirelessly with the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier to secure a deal, but Boris Johnson has so far failed to present a workable alternative to Theresa May’s Withdrawal Deal.

So, what do YOU think? Who is to blame for failing to reach BREXIT deal?

  1. The Media, Parliament and Mrs May, (not forgetting the biased disruptive Speaker)and the EU should carry the brunt of the Blame, mostly remainers (wolves dressed as sheep) ;EU never would have given us a decent deal but come the day we will be rid – and a GE takes place the people will remember the way they have been treated

  2. Paul Whiter says:

    Its clearly the UK governments fault. The real problems started as soon as Teresa May set out her ridiculous and impossible to reconcile red lines.

    With an almost evenly split country, there should have been some sort of assembly including members of the public, business figures and politicians from both sides of the argument to come up with a way to move forward and to work out the best way to leave the EU so as to do minimal damage to the UK as well as to respect the result of the (almost) evenly split referendum. To come out with her ridiculous red lines right at the start of the process has led us to where we are now.

  3. Ken says:

    The British government is to Blame, Borris Johnson and the ERG never intended to get a deal, they have always wanted a hard Brexit, otherwise they would have accepted Theresa Mays deal and we would have been out of the EU by now discussing our future relationship.

    • Yvette Birch says:

      May’s ‘deal’ was actually an international treaty with no get out clause. It actually reversed Brexit & would have made us an EU colony! 5th largest world economy & you would prefer we were subordinates to the EU dictatorship? Paying in billions, no say, still under ECJ & rules. Close alignment re trade & migration, no control of fishing or making our own deals…you clearly haven’t read much about the EU. It’s based on Nazi ideology & used stealth to take over countries so that, by the time countries realised, it would be too late.

  4. Joy Clark says:

    It’s the right wing governments fault.

    • John Doherty says:

      Right-wing Government!! Have you had your head shoved up your a$$ for the last 3 years? It has been the Left and Liberals who have caused the mayhem.

    The EU Cult Cannot comprehend resistance
    And due to the rigged oaths that legally bind them to “support further integration”
    They cannot take any position except a Federal EU or lose their millions in pensions.
    So soaked in their own propaganda they are Delusional in their fervour.
    Recently Junker a multi_billionaire member of their “Council” of Oligarch representatives threatened Brexiteers with the Guillotine.
    just as backward as their predictions of financial ruin of UK.

  9. Alan Henry says:

    Johnson has all to gain for a ‘no deal’ and he’s lied about that, as he has with everything else, and been found guilty by the highest court in the land

  10. darren sargent says:

    the eu parliament has never been a fair system germany having at least 10 more meps than any other country is wrong why should they have a ruling vote same has the brexit team for the eu all are anti brexit meps this should have been a split from across the board corrupt eu leaders are there on film saying they will make ireland a issue to keep us tied into the eu this is wrong they are trying to make us beg and plead for a deal when why should we. we are the ones that are pumping money into something that has crippled a lot of businesses out there and die to all the paper work that is needed to trade with the eu many small businesses cant afford the legal teams to do this

  11. Geoff Hunter says:

    The traitor remain Britain haters are fully to blame for no deal ,the EU don’t want us to leave and because of the traitors remainers they are in a position where they have no need for a deal but after we have left on no deal WTO they will be falling over themselves to get a deal ,it’s like going to buy a car and while your trying to get an good deal your partner is telling the salesman we won’t be leave this car show room until we buy a car no matter what crappy deal you give us

  12. C says:

    Parliament tied the hands of government by stopping no deal.

  13. Sally Packer says:

    The EU are totally to blame, they are putting every obstacle in the way to stop the UK from leaving, obviously because we are the second largest contributor to the EU funds, and that is a big hole to fill. They are so out of touch with the people, they cannot even contemplate any country wanting to leave – but they are also very afraid that if the UK leaves successfully, other countries will follow. There is only one way to leave, and that is on a NO DEAL – that means we leave without any ties. A clean break. But we want all commitments to hand our defence forces over to the EU cancelled forthwith. A country that can’t defend itself is not a sovereign country, and I cannot underst why the Government is not doing anything to stop that part of Mrs Mays deal!


    Joining the European Union is similar to being jailed for life, you can’t get out unless the powers that be allow it….the EU just want to milk us dry, we will never be equal or have equal say, we are cash cows to them, they don’t care what we think or what we want or even need…they don’t care about people or nations they only care about fulfilling the dictatorship dream, what they didn’t achieve by taking in force during 1939 – 1945 they are now trying to achieve by stealth..history repeating itself, god help us all. NO DEAL BREXIT IS THE ONLY WAY…

  15. Stuart says:

    The reason I blame the government is quite simply they will vote against any deal put before them.

    If they had voted for May’s deal we would of been out by now.

    The figures show a clear disproportionate amount of MP’s that feel that we should remain in comparison to their constituents and constituencies that voted remain. The proplem clearly lies with Parliament.

    I’m blaming the eu for the probable no deal brexit, it’s there way or nothing, as they won’t even deviate from the original deal, not even slightly. Which to me shows they are only out to damage our economy ever since we invoked article 50.
