Donald Tusk says EU still waiting on ‘realistic’ Brexit offer, as Scottish first minister piles pressure on May

BRUSSELS: The European Union is “still waiting for concrete, realistic proposals from London” on how to break the impasse over Britain’s looming exit, EU President Donald Tusk said Wednesday.
“No news is not always good news,” Tusk said on Twitter after meeting in Brussels with chief EU negotiator Michel Barnier.
Britain is set to leave the 28-member European Union on March 29, but the terms of the divorce remain uncertain after a deal struck with Prime Minister Theresa May was roundly rejected by British lawmakers last month.
May told parliament Tuesday that she needs more time to talk about modifications to the rejected deal with EU officials, who have said they are not prepared to reopen negotiations.
Last week, Tusk raised hackles in London when he said: “I’ve been wondering what that special place in Hell looks like, for those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely.”
Meanwhile, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has called on Prime Minister Theresa May to take a no deal Brexit off the table, ITV reported on Wednesday.
Sturgeon said May and her government are being “increasingly reckless and negligent” by not ruling out a no deal Brexit, ITV said.
Unless May can get a Brexit deal approved by the British parliament, she will have to decide whether to delay Brexit or thrust the world’s fifth largest economy into chaos by leaving without a deal.
