Prime Minister Theresa May has said that failing to secure a deal with the European Union before Britain leaves the bloc next year “wouldn’t be the end of the world”, Sky News reported on Tuesday.
May’s comment, made to reporters as she headed to Africa to boost Britain’s trade ties ahead of Brexit in March 2019, came after her Chancellor Philip Hammond said last week that a no-deal departure from the EU would damage public finances.
Ahead of her arrival in South Africa, May said the forecasts cited by Hammond were out of date.
