…Earlier, Mr Schinas [European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas] said he had heard nothing new since British Prime Minister Theresa May laid out a tweaked divorce plan yesterday.
“If you’d like me to push me and speculate on what might happen in a no-deal scenario in Ireland, I think it is pretty obvious: you will have a hard border,” he said.
Mr Schinas also expressed frustration as journalists questioned him over the next steps in the negotiation.
“In all honesty, I have a terrible sense of déjà vu in all these exchanges,” he said. “There is nothing else that I can meaningfully say.”
