The Brussels Brexit chief told a private meeting of senior MEPs trade negotiations could not be completed in the timeframe set out by the Prime Minister. In a leaked recording, Mr Barnier is heard dismissing the UK’s 11-month timetable to wrap up trade talks by 2021 as “unrealistic” and suggesting negotiations will drag on until long after the end of next year.

He told the meeting: “With regards to this agreement, we will not get everything done in 11 months.

“We will do all we can – we won’t do it all.”

Mr Barnier, who was recently reappointed to lead the next round of Brexit talks for the EU side, told the meeting: “It is unrealistic that a global negotiation can be done in 11 months, so we can’t do it all.

 
 
 

“We will do all we can to get what I call the ‘vital minimum’ to establish a relationship with the UK if that is the time scale.”

He went on warn Britain would face another “cliff-edge” unless and extension to EU rules and regulations was accepted by Britain.

Mr Barnier said: “If there is no extension, we will still have a few months to achieve what I would describe as the minimum necessary for the economy and security or to prepare for a cliff-edge.

“Either we have a trade agreement or we will be in the WTO framework.

“We can’t take contingency measures on trade to give us more time. If there’s no deal, it is a cliff edge for trade.”
