European Union says no-deal Brexit would lead to hard border in Ireland

On 29 January the House of Commons will have another vote on Theresa May's agreement with European Union leaders that was previously rejected by an overwhelming majority of MPs.

The UK and Irish governments have both pledged to avoid a hard border.

Labour's proposed change would see the Commons vote on options created to block "no deal", including Corbyn's alternative Brexit plan with customs union membership and legislating for a public vote on a deal that has been approved by MPs.

The Labour Party has moved Britain closer to another Brexit referendum after including a parliamentary vote on the matter in their proposed amendments to the government's withdrawal bill.

Margaritis Schinas made the comments to reporters on Tuesday.

Piling further pressure on the United Kingdom to resolve the issue of finding an acceptable deal, Jean-Claude Juncker's chief spokesman told reporters a hard border was "pretty obvious" without an agreement.

"So, of course, we are for peace, of course we stand behind the Good Friday Agreement, but that's what a no-deal scenario would entail".

Overmars, who played for Arsenal between 1997 and 2000, has been working as Ajax's director of football for almost seven years. Arsenal's head of recruitment, Sven Mislintat has finally left the club.

"We would have to negotiate an agreement on customs and regulations that meant full alignment so there will be no hard border".

"So I will not now speculate on this Plan B because as I said seconds ago we are for Plan A which is set by the Withdrawal Agreement and the Political Declaration as a package".

Their view is clear - they can't be ready for no withdrawal agreement, no transition period and no agreements on trade.

But these recent comments seem to confirm the European Union would be willing to enforce a hard border without a withdrawal agreement in place.

But in a TV interview earlier this month, she cautioned that this would require action to resolve issues arising from Brexit, telling the BBC's Andrew Marr: "No border doesn't happen simply because people sit around saying, "well, we won't have a border". How awkward could it be for Mrs May if they manage to tie her hands?

Sinn Fein President Mary Lou McDonald said: "While nobody wants a crash Brexit, we must prepare for any and all eventualities".

She said it was "unforgivable" for advocates of no deal to "play games with peace in Northern Ireland".
