Theresa May has only “one option” that would be good for Britain and good for Europe
Mrs May has only one option that would be good for Britain and good for Europe and that would be to file for a Norway-style single market agreement with the customs union for a five-year period and restore the sovereignty of the House of Commons and defunct this whole process
Mr Varoufakis said: “Grimly predictable. The European Union was never going to negotiate with Mrs Theresa May. I’ve been warning about this since the day of the referendum.” Citing the negotiating performance of UK counterparts as “equally abysmal” and “verging on suicidal”, he further noted that: “You do not accept this sequencing of negotiations that Mr Barnier clearly outlined when he was appointed without heading straight for defeat.”
“The tragedy we now have is we have two teams… the Brussels-based negotiators and the London Government. Neither of those teams are particularly interested in a mutually advantageous agreement.
Varoufakis went on to lament the calls for a second Brexit referendum as “delusional”, emphasising that “There can be no second referendum because a referendum by definition involves a binary choice and now you have two, three, or four choices. You have no Brexit deal, no deal Brexit, you have no Brexit, you have a Norway style so the only way out of this impasse now is for a general election – that’s the way I see it.”
