Britain’s Chancellor Philip Hammond said it is a delusion to think that the government will be able to negotiate a new divorce deal with the European Union if the prime minister’s agreement is defeated in a vote in parliament next week.
“The idea of renegotiating at the 11th hour is simply a delusion,” Philip Hammond told parliament.
“We need to be honest with ourselves – the alternatives to this deal are no deal or no Brexit.
Either will leave us a fractured society and divided nation.”
