& # 39; I fear that the clock will run out & # 39 ;: EU chief blows out holidaymakers and accuses UK of wasting its Brextension AGAIN, while politicians die out during 11-day Commons break
- The Brexit coordinator of the European Parliament criticized MPs who went on vacation
- He said there is a fear that a cross-party agreement will & # 39; disappear & # 39;
- It is after Donald Tusk said that he still believes that the UK might not leave the EU
- Mr. Tusk also said that people should not think that the Brexit can be reversed
A senior EU negotiator said yesterday that he believes Britain will be wasting its latest Brexit extension.
Guy Verhofstadt, Brexit coordinator of the European Parliament, said the UK is likely to go round the clock again.
He criticized the decision of parliamentarians to go on holiday once the six-month extension had been agreed.
Mr Verhofstadt said that postponing the Brexit until the end of October was at risk of prolonging the uncertainty of the process because it was & # 39; too close for a substantial review and at the same time too far away to initiate action & # 39 ;.

In a speech to the European Parliament, he said: "I fear that with this decision the pressure to reach an agreement between the parties will disappear.
& # 39; And that both parties, the Conservatives and Labor, are doing what they have done for months – running around the clock.
& # 39; And the proof of this is that the first decision the House of Commons made after you decided to go on vacation. & # 39;
Mr Verhofstadt said that both parties can be canceled during the May European elections and added: "Perhaps the only thing that can save us is Nigel Farage."

The intervention came when EU President Donald Tusk said he still believed that Britain might not leave the EU.
The Brussels chief told MEPs in Strasbourg that the United Kingdom was postponed until October 31 after the Brexit & # 39; a few months – maybe longer & # 39; remain represented in the European Parliament.
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told MEPs that the EU would also be affected by the disruption that a No Deal Brexit would bring to the UK.

He said: & # 39; Our union has nothing to gain from a major disruption in the UK.
& # 39; The only people who benefit are those who reject multilateralism and try to undermine the global legal order. & # 39;
Nigel Farage claimed that his new Brexit party & # 39; would sweep the board & # 39; at the elections on May 23.
He said to the European Parliament: "There is only one way to stop it, and that is if Mrs May's ruling party and Corbyn's opposition come together and agree to a permanent customs union, and indeed become a member of the internal market.

& # 39; If that happens, the Brexit party will not win the European elections, but it will win the general election because the betrayal will be so complete and complete, so I don't believe it will happen. & # 39;
In Westminster, the talks between Labor and the government continued at an official level, but Jeremy Corbyn warned yesterday that they got stuck.
The Labor leader said the party had put forward its arguments that the future relationship with Europe should mean a customs union, but added that Ms. May was under pressure from Tories who had a & # 39; deregulated low-tax company from this country wanted to create & # 39; for a trade agreement with US President Donald Trump. He added: & # 39; I don't want to do that. & # 39;
