Brexit: The EU urges Theresa May for critical talks with the warning about the demise of the British economy

Brussels has released data showing that Britain will experience the weakest growth in the EU over the next two years, putting pressure on Theresa May for her approval of a Brexit deal.

Officials of the European Commission warned that the British economy would collapse even in a smooth Brexit, while a disorderly retreat would drag the country's forecasts further down.

The move to highlight the dreadful consequences of a chaotic Brexit comes just as British negotiators try to convince their Brussels colleagues that they are prepared to both enter into a withdrawal agreement and make an agreement on a future relationship.

But the Prime Minister is now also under heavy pressure from her own ministers – before a Monday expected Crunch Cabinet – and her DUP government partners to not admit too much in negotiations.
