Michael Gove says no-deal ‘a very real prospect’

‘No deal is a very real prospect’ – that’s what Michael Gove, the cabinet’s new Brexit enforcer, has insisted in a newspaper article today. He’s echoed the Prime Minister’s vow that Britain will leave the EU on the 31st of October: ‘no ifs, no buts’.

But even as he and his cabinet colleagues emphasise their willingness to countenance a no-deal Brexit, their former cabinet colleagues are said to be plotting with Labour to stop them.
