As it currently appears, the EU sees no chance of a Brexit deal! According to insiders, the talks are currently at a dead end. The talks could collapse because the DUP (Coalition Party of the Tories of Boris Johnson) refuses.
For further negotiations to make sense, London would have to move more, according to the insiders
For the DUP, however, there is clearly a very narrow red line in the negotiations with the EU.
All in all an almost hopeless situation for Boris Johnson, who also has to reconcile the diverging positions of his own party!
