Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29 but Parliament’s rejection this week of Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement with Brussels has thrown those plans into chaos and opened up a range of outcomes, from quitting with no agreement on future relations to halting Brexit altogether.

“At this moment we do not even know what the United Kingdom wants,” Siza Vieira told Reuters in an interview late on Wednesday. Continue reading Portugal vows no visas for Britons in no-deal Brexit – minister
