The European Union and the UK negotiating teams have reached an agreement for Britain to leave the EU at a meeting in Brussels. “We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control— now Parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime, and our environment,” Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a tweet.
A Brexit deal between the United Kingdom and the European Union (EU) is “virtually impossible,” British government sources told local media on Tuesday after a telephone call between Prime Minister Boris Johnson and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Johnson and Merkel spoke on Tuesday morning about Johnson’s proposals to the EU last week.

The parent company of Iberia, Vueling, and British Airways states that labor disputes will subtract €215 million from their operating profit.

The debate in the UK was re-heated when Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced today that he would tell European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker that he wants to reach an agreement on Brexit, but he does not intend to postpone the October 31 deadline for Brexit. Political commentators began to ask whether Johnson’s remarks meant that he would not recognize the law adopted by Parliament. Last week, the Parliament passed a law asking Johnson to postpone Brexit for three months if an agreement could not be reached by October 19th.
