Davis says no Brexit deal ‘incredibly unlikely’

It is “incredibly unlikely” that Britain will not be able to negotiate a deal with the European Union on its departure from the bloc, Brexit Secretary David Davis said.

Davis told a business conference in Berlin he hoped the European Commission would be able by Christmas to proceed to the next stage of Brexit negotiations – on future ties between Britain and the EU.

Davis added that he expected Prime Minister Theresa May to remain in office for the duration of the Brexit negotiations “and beyond.”
