In a recent article published by The Times, former Chancellor Philip Hammond has said that a no-deal Brexit would betray the trust of the British people who voted to leave the EU in 2016.

He added that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s unrealistic demands sent to the EU have ruined any chance of a new Brexit deal.

Hammond has also rebuffed claims that he attempted to “undermine” the Government’s negotiations.

While speaking to the BBC, Mr. Hammond said he was confident that Parliament had the means to express its opposition to a no-deal Brexit.

Despite the former Chancellor’s best efforts however, a Downing Street source has informed the BBC that the UK will leave Europe on the 31st of October, with or without a deal.
