EU27 Offering No New Plans to Resolve Brexit Impasse - Tusk

EU Council President Donald Tusk and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar shake hands as the they give statements after a meeting at the European Council headquarters in Brussels Belgium

It's after Mr Tusk said there was a "special place in hell" for Brexit leaders who campaigned for Leave without a plan on how to implement it.

European Council President Donald Tusk has said there is a "special place in hell" for "those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan of how to carry it safely".

"The EU 27 is not making any new offer", Tusk said Wednesday.

He was speaking at a joint press conference with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar in Brussels in the past few minutes. DUP MP Sammy Wilson said Mr Tusk and his "arrogant European Union negotiators" had "fanned the flames of fear in an attempt to try to overturn the result of the referendum".

It will be her first chance to hold face-to-face talks with the bloc since her Withdrawal Agreement reached in November was rejected by the House of Commons. Nigel Farage, the former leader of the UKIP party, in respond to Mr Tusk's statement, said in his Twitter: "After Brexit, we will be free of unelected, arrogant bullies like you and run our own country".

And he demanded that Prime Minister Theresa May bring "realistic suggestions" for how to end the impasse and prevent a no-deal scenario.

The Taoiseach has said that while the European Union is open to further discussions with the United Kingdom, the Withdrawal Agreement was negotiated over many months and is the best deal possible. And this is why we insist on the backstop.

Varadkar said that last week's vote in the House of Commons for unspecified alternative arrangements only succeeded because "alternative arrangements can mean whatever you want them to mean".

The Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which has propped up May's government since she lost her parliamentary majority in a 2017 snap election, said it wanted to get a deal agreed but the border backstop had to be replaced.

Britain will risk crashing out of 40 trade agreements spanning five continents in event of a no-deal Brexit, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) warned Wednesday.

The so-called backstop is created to preserve the open border between Northern Ireland and EU member state Ireland in light of the fact that May has insisted that the United Kingdom does not remain either in the European single market or the customs union.

But Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament's Brexit co-ordinator, responded to Mr Tusk's comments by saying that the Brexiteers "would even manage to divide hell". He said Britain's political instability further proved the need for a "backstop" insurance policy - the main obstacle to a deal - to keep the border between Ireland and UK-ruled Northern Ireland open after Brexit.

May, on a visit to Belfast on Tuesday, tried to reassure Northern Ireland that she can deliver an orderly Brexit that will ensure peace in a province riven by three decades of sectarian conflict until a 1998 accord.
