British Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove has accused the EU of being “not serious” about making the compromises needed to secure a post-Brexit trade deal.
Having previously set the chances of an agreement with the EU at 66%, he is now saying the chances are less.
“It’s less. I can’t be precise but one of the reasons why is the position that’s been taken in the last couple of weeks by European Union leaders,” he said.
“They have not been willing to intensify the talks in a way that would indicate that they were actually serious about reaching an agreement,” he added.
