GERMANY TO THE RESCUE – HOW IRONIC

Brexit negotiations between the UK and EU could be re-opened if MPs reject the deal negotiated by Theresa May this evening, Germany’s foreign minister has said.

Heiko Maas told reporters at the European Parliament: “The agreement stands, as it is. I doubt very much that the agreement can be fundamentally reopened. If there were a better solution, it would already have been put forward.”

He expressed hope that the withdrawal agreement could still pass, but added: “If it goes wrong tonight, there could be further talks.”

EU leaders and top officials in Brussels have previously rejected any suggestion that discussions could be re-opened. Commission officials have stated since December that they do not for see any further meetings between the UK and EU.
