Brexit: David Davis urges Boris to 'not be bullied' by EU
David Davis told LBC that the European Union are playing an extraordinary one-way game during the negotiations over a post-Brexit trade agreement. He added that if the EU miscalculate and think they can bully the UK into accepting bad terms it will result in a no deal Brexit.
Mr Davis said: “You have got a real demonstration of why this was seen as a tactical and strategic play by the Europeans.
“This week the Europeans said we want the UK to be limited in terms of subsidies, but we do not want us to be limited.
“That is an extraordinary one-way game, it is obviously designed for them to be able to target some of our industries.
“We must not give them any rules to help them.”

He added: “Do I think there will be a deal? It is 80 percent probable.
“There is a 20 percent chance of a no deal, if they miscalculate and think they can bully us into it.
“Boris should not be bullied, the odds are on a decent deal.”
On Saturday, Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen told Sky News that a no deal Brexit is a better outcome for Britain than accepting a bad deal with the EU.

Mr Bridgen said: “What we do know is the Prime Minister despite the doomsters predictions has not budged on the UK’s red lines.
“We know that both sides think it is worth resuming the talks.
“We know that European Union negotiations always go down to the wire.
“What is clear is that the wire is being stretched to its very elastic limits in these negotiations.”
