The European Union realizes that it is British Prime Minister Theresa May who is making a Brexit deal or no deal at all.
Donald Tusk, President of the European Council (the body that governs the EU) said that the current Brexit withdrawal plan, which was agreed last weekend by British Prime Minister Theresa May and EU leaders, is a "regular" Divorce ". "
" A few days before the House vote it is becoming increasingly clear that this deal is the best possible, indeed the only one possible, "Tusk said Friday at the start of the G20 Summit Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Tusk quoted the ultimatum, as the UK debates the Brexit deal before a poll in the UK Parliament next week May's deal ̵
and EU leaders are trying to back home in May in the face of this resistance as they try to sell this deal – and Tusk's speech reaffirming that the EU is not renegotiating any other retreat plan is part of that effort.
But May's Brexit deal does not look good: there are dozens of overflows from the pro-Brexit members of their own conservative party, and the opposition Labor Party is unlikely to catch up, as they do not like and have little appetite, May to bring a victory.
Here are even worse news: If May's deal is bad, this is a no deal Brexit scenario – which will happen if a final deal is not approved by the fast approaching March 29th. 2019, deadline – possibly catastrophic for Britain.
On this day, UK membership in the EU will expire, deal or no agreement reached: 3 million EU citizens living in the UK and 1 million Britons living in other EU countries would overnight lose all automatic rights and protections. Air travel in the UK would come to a halt immediately. British supermarkets could run out of food.
And these are just a few of the possible scenarios.
Nobody wants this no-deal scenario. That could be the reason why Tusk added an important caveat to his ultimatum and offered a possible third option over May's deal or no deal: no Brexit at all. "If this deal is rejected in the Commons, we have an alternative, as Prime Minister May emphasized a few weeks ago. No deal or no Brexit at all, "Tusk said.
This will probably reassure members of the British Parliament who are calling for a second referendum – another way for the people to vote on separation from the EU Resists demands for another referendum, but the noise is growing in intensity as the remaining good options wane.
The PM spends the weekend selling his Brexit deal to a different mass: the rest of the world G20 summit in Buenos Aires – the annual meeting of heads of state and government of the world's 20 leading economies – is expected by their countrymen that the Brexit plan is a "good deal" global economy.
Support Other ally (and future trading partner) could offer some assurances to Members of Parliament who are reluctant to support the plan.  Whether May will receive this support or not is unclear. But the Brexit options expire – as well as the time.
