European Union leaders will give British Prime Minister Theresa May a tough reception in Brussels on Wednesday, warning her to rally support at home for the Brexit deal on offer or be cut loose without one in March.
May will address the other 27 EU national leaders at a summit before they dine without her. Officials said they expected the leaders to tell May they have little more to offer since talks stalled on Sunday and will step up preparations for Britain to drop out of the bloc with no deal.
Summit chair Donald Tusk said the risk of a “no deal” taking Britain out of the bloc and into legal limbo and border chaos on March 29 was greater than ever.
He put the onus on May to bring a “creative” solution to break the impasse over the EU-UK land border on the island of Ireland.
