France’s Prime Minister Edouard Philippe warned Thursday that Britain could still crash out of the European Union without a deal. The warning came after two dramatic British Cabinet resignations on Thursday morning. On Wednesday night, Theresa May’s Cabinet approved her draft Brexit deal with the European Union.
“Nothing allows us to say at this stage that the agreement will ultimately be adopted. We must prepare ourselves for a potential outcome, which we do not want but which is on the table, that of an exit without an agreement,” Philippe said in a news conference Thursday.
France’s economy minister Bruno Le Maire earlier tweeted: “The agreement on #Brexit is good news. This should allow Europeans and the British to find a way out that is in everyone’s interest. Careful, however: we must ensure that the United Kingdom respects all European regulations.”
