Ireland: British ‘take it or leave it’ approach amounts to no deal

If the British government’s approach is that the it made last week were presented on a take-it-or-leave-it basis, it must know that will not result in a deal, Ireland’s foreign minister said on Tuesday.

“What you saw today from Donald Tusk was a frustration that the proposals seem to be, from a British perspective, on a take-it-or-leave-it basis,” Coveney told a news conference, referring to the European Council President’s accusation that Britain was playing a “stupid blame game” over Brexit.

“I agree that if the approach from  is take-it-or-leave-it on the basis of the proposal coming from the British prime minister last week, then the British government must know that there is not going to be a deal.”
