EU WARNED: Brussels told to be READY for no deal Brexit – 'Britain will do just fine!'

Margaret Thatcher’s former advisor insisted Britain will do “just fine” under a no deal Brexit as he called for the next Conservative leader to take a tough stance on the . Speaking to CNN, Mr Gardiner said: “It think that the next British Government will seek a renegotiation of the EU withdrawal agreement with Brussels. If the EU is not willing to renegotiate then undoubtedly I think we are heading for a no deal scenario.

“But Britain has been preparing for the possibility of a no deal now for the last two years.

“I think much of Europe has been prepared for the prospect of a no deal and I expect that under a no deal scenario, Britain will do just fine actually as the world’s fifth largest economy.

“The fastest growing major economy in Europe today and I think that under a no deal scenario Britain will then strike trade deals with countries across the world including the United States.

“And I think Britain will continue to thrive and prosper under a no deal scenario.”

Mr Gardiner, who is the director of the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom at The Heritage Foundation, said the Prime Minister’s handling of was “absolutely disastrous” and insisted she was right to resign.

Mr Gardiner said Boris Johnson, who is the frontrunner for next Tory leader, is likely to strike a “very powerful” and “more robust” relationship with US President Donald Trump.

Following a meeting on Friday morning with the 1922 Committee Chair Sir Graham Brady, Theresa May gave a moving speech outlining her resignation.

The Prime Minister had no choice but to resign after a Cabinet revolt over her latest Brexit plan and the delay of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB).

Mrs May said: "It is and will always remain a matter of deep regret to me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit."

Speaking about the future of Britain, the politics expert said: “You could see a new British Conservative Government more closely aligned actually with Washington than it is with Brussels.

“So, I would expect to see a particularly strong US-UK special relationship post-Theresa May.”

The US President, who is scheduled to travel to the UK in the first week of June for an official state visit, claimed her decision is for the “good of her country”. Mr Trump added that he “felt bad” for Mrs May, insisting “she is a good woman”.

He said: “I feel bad for Theresa, I like her very much, she is a good woman.

“She worked very hard. She is very strong.

“She decided to do something that some people were surprised at, some people were not. It is for the good of her country.

“But, I like her very much. In fact, I will be seeing her in two weeks.”
