'Hope dies last': fatalism among EU leaders as no-deal Brexit looks likely
The EU increasingly believes a no-deal Brexit on 12 April is the most likely outcome, senior EU officials have said, prompting Emmanuel Macron to privately ask the Irish prime minister if his country could cope.

The French president sought assurance from Leo Varadkar in the closing moments of a marathon session of talks on Thursday night, as the leaders looked to settle on mid-April as the new cliff-edge.

"What will happen if there is a no-deal Brexit on 12 April?" Macron asked of the Irish taoiseach. "Would you be fine?"

Varadkar responded: "We can cope".
