UK accuses EU of acting irresponsibly on Brexit

 

UK trade secretary Liam Fox says the European Union’s refusal to renegotiate a divorce agreement is a sign the bloc is becoming “irresponsible” in its way of treating the issue of Brexit.

“It is in all our interests to get to that agreement and for the EU to say we are not going to even discuss it seems to me to be quite irresponsible,” Fox told Sky News in an interview aired on Sunday.

Fox, who has been regarded as a key ally of Prime Minister Theresa May in her efforts to secure a Brexit deal in the parliament, said the EU would be to blame if Britain crashes out of the bloc at the end of March with no agreement.

“Are they really saying that they would rather not negotiate and end up in a ‘no-deal’ position?” he said.
