EU ready to discuss new Brexit deal if UK changes 'red lines'

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

The European Union told Britain on Wednesday (January 16) it could have a different kind of Brexit deal after its parliament overwhelmingly rejected the one negotiated by Prime Minister Theresa May -- but only if London changes its key demands.

Addressing the European Parliament on Wednesday, EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier defended the agreement struck with May that was crushed the previous evening by an alliance of British lawmakers on opposing sides of the Brexit divide and warned that the risk of a disorderly withdrawal was now greater than ever.

The EU executive would step up its preparations, he said, for a disorderly exit that would disrupt the whole of Europe.

Barnier indicated that one way forward would be for Britain to accept even closer alignment with EU regulations to secure a very close trading relationship in future -- EU officials say London could, for example, abandon its determination to leave the EU customs union and centrally regulated single market.
