BORIS Johnson has admitted it is proving “very very difficult” to get a Brexit trade deal with the EU as the stalemate continues.
Later this week the PM will travel to Brussels later this week for a crunch meeting with EU Chief Ursula Von Der Leyen.
A 90-minute phone call between the pair yesterday failed to reach a breakthrough – leaving the UK hurtling towards a no-deal Brexit.
In a last ditch effort to salvage a deal, the Prime Minister hopes a face-to-face meeting might achieve what months of back and forth negotiations between the UK and the EU haven’t and find consensus in key areas.
The news comes as Barclays share price was down 1.25% today as investors worried about the possibility of a no-deal Brexit which it is feared could have a 2% hit to the economy and cost 300k jobs as firms move abroad.
