UK's Clark says that second referendum would increase uncertainty
UK business secretary, Greg Clark, comments
- Would like to see a Brexit deal
- Hopes that May's deal will be endorsed
- Says parliament should be invited to say what it would agree with on Brexit
The typical Brexit rhetoric doing the rounds here. As an update, May is currently still negotiating with European leaders to offer her concessions on the backstop; what she needs are legal assurances that it won't be open-ended. However, there still doesn't appear to be any breakthrough and UK and European lawmakers are set to observe their Christmas recess period later this week so expect this to drag on until the second week of January at least.
