BERLIN (Reuters) – Britain is heading toward a disorderly exit from the European Union that could have disastrous consequences for its economy and those of its partners in the bloc, Germany’s BDI industry group has warned.
To avoid such an outcome, commonly known as a hard Brexit, the British government must agree to remain in the EU’s single market and customs union and accept EU jurisdiction as the reference for settling any future disputes, it said in a statement issued on Friday.
Way - Reimposition - Controls - Border - British-ruled
That was also the only way to avoid the reimposition of controls at the border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic after Brexit, a major concern for EU leaders who hold a summit on June 28-29.
“The danger that Brussels and London find themselves empty- handed on March 29, 2019 is high,” said BDI General Manager Joachim Lang.
Years - Referendum - Britain - Brexit
“Two years after the referendum, Britain is drifting unstoppably toward a disorderly Brexit.
“The British government is still playing for time. This strategy leads to disaster. A clear course correction is needed.”
