NEW FOREIGN Secretary Jeremy Hunt has urged France and Germany to make the EU ‘strike a “sensible’ pro-jobs trade deal with the UK.

Mr Hunt told the London Evening Standard: “The probability of No Deal is increasing by the day until we see a change of approach from the European Commission who have this view that they just need to wait and Britain will blink. That is just a profound misunderstanding of us as a nation.”

Hunt added: “There is [a] real chance of No Deal by accident. Everyone is assuming, no, no, no, this will never happen. Well, actually, it could.

“France and Germany have to send a strong signal to the Commission that we need to negotiate a pragmatic and sensible outcome that protects jobs on both sides of the Channel because for every job lost in the UK, there will be jobs lost in Europe as well if Brexit goes wrong.”

France has taken a hard line on Brexit and has sought to steal off jobs from the Square Mile to Paris.

Mr Hunt added that a No Deal would be an economic “tragedy” for the Continent and that it would “change British public attitudes towards Europe for a generation”.
