British Prime Minister Boris Johnson (right) and EU Council President Donald Tusk at the G7 summit in France this week
…I now notice a subtle tone change. In his one-to-one chats in Paris, Berlin and at the G7 with European Council President Donald Tusk, the prime minister has managed to persuade Brussels that:
a) He is serious in his threat to pursue a no-deal Brexit if no agreement with the EU can be found; and b) He would actively prefer to get a deal through parliament if possible.
But this change in perception does not alter facts on the ground.
EU leaders still think a no-deal Brexit is the most likely option right now.
