"You don't desire a deal, you don't desire an extension, you don't want to revoke, quo vadis?" - a Latin phrase meaning "where are you going?"

The Prime Minister's official spokesman acknowledged there had been a "frank exchange" with Mrs Merkel and that the talks had reached a "critical point", but refused to be drawn any further on the "source" claims. "Given little political risk premium priced into GBP around current levels, Cable looks vulnerable to $1.21", they said in a note.

TBoth broadcasters quoted Downing Street as saying Merkel's comments make a deal "essentially impossible".

After Downing Street offered an extremely negative reaction to a phone call between Johnson and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Tusk quickly retorted that the EU-U.K. talks weren't about apportioning blame if the divorce turns out to be a chaotic and costly no-deal exit.

Relations between Johnson's government and the European Union hit a new low Tuesday after an anonymous Downing Street source issued a blistering statement accusing Brussels of not wanting to negotiate a new deal. We will not agree to a deal that undermines the Good Friday Agreement and the peace process or compromise the integrity of our single market.

The opposition Labour party said in a statement that Parliament should unite to prevent Britain crashing out of the European Union at the end of the month.

Nomura's forex strategist Jordan Rochester said he was taking the Spectator report "with a huge pinch of salt".

Those who support further delays would "go to the bottom of the queue", including on security issues, the sourced added.

The source also warned that negotiations with Brussels could collapse this week and blamed Irish premier Leo Varadkar for refusing to engage.

'I think most people just want just to get Brexit done'.

"It reveals that there doesn't appear to be an actual plan at all", she told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

If the European Union suggests an extended exit date other than 31st January 2020, the Government can ask Parliament whether or not it approves of that proposal, and Parliament can choose to reject it.

"This is yet another cynical attempt by Number 10 to sabotage the negotiations", said Keir Starmer, Brexit spokesman for the Labour Party, adding that the British parliament needed to unite to stop him.

With the clock ticking down to Britain's departure on October 31, Johnson has consistently said he will not ask for a Brexit delay and that he would rather be "dead in a ditch" than seek any further extension.

According to The Sun, the British PM's hopes of securing an agreement are fading fast as stubborn Brussels bosses refuse to re-open official talks on his bold Brexit plans.

Otherwise, the United Kingdom will leave the bloc without a deal. "No UK government could ever concede such a surrender", she said.

"I think we all agree we need a workable solution now and not something based on untried and revokable arrangements that would be left to negotiation during the transition period", European Union spokeswoman Mina Andreeva said.

"If his ideas are limited to what he presented to the negotiator (Michel) Barnier five days ago, it means that he doesn't actually want an agreement", Sassoli, an Italian, told reporters, speaking through a translator in London.
