- No deal is what we've legislated for, you know, in international and domestic law we leave the European Union on the 29th of March with or without an agreement, and it would be a really catastrophic negotiating error to take no deal off the table.
- Catastrophe is foolish and reckless word to use. No politician should use it. It's one thing for the Labour Party to say, it's quite another for Conservatives to say it. Catastrophe is a word which should be reserved for genuine massive loss of life, and for people to call leaving without a withdrawal agreement a catastrophe is an act of reckless harm to the United Kingdom.
