LONDON (Reuters) – Unless the European Union compromises and does a Brexit deal shortly, then the United Kingdom will leave without a deal, a senior Downing Street source said on Tuesday.
“If the EU doesn’t do a deal shortly, then we leave without a deal,” the source told Reuters. “We are leaving the European Union.”
