BREXIT: No Deal "Likely"
The European Union is standing firm and won't compromise on state aid. The EU wants the UK to follow it's rules, which would ban the UK from subsidising or rescuing domestic private sector businesses.
Unless the UK capitulates in this area, the EU has made it clear, that they will not move on to the next round of talks, which is fishing quotas.
The EU are stalling the talks and what they fail to understand, is that the United Kingdom is no longer a member of the Union. Britain want's a bilateral free trade deal, it does not want to be a rule taker from an organisation it has no say in.
There's roughly 6 weeks until a deal has to be agreed, if the deadlock continues, we should just walk away and take our chances with the open seas!
