British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said a Brexit deal needs to happen “now or never”, hinting his government will move forward in leaving the EU without a deal. Donald Tusk, President of the European Council slammed Johnson accusing him of playing a “stupid blame game” over Brexit talks. “You don’t want a deal, you don’t want an extension, you don’t want to revoke, quo vadis?”.
As negotiations appear to have hit a wall yet again, the EU guarantees the work to secure a deal will continue. Mia Alberti is live from Brussels for Channel News Asia.
