What's next for Brexit? Raw Politics discusses

With less than four months to go until the UK is set to leave the EU, time is ticking on if British Prime Minister Theresa May can get enough MPs to back her deal on December 11.

However, that looks unlikely.

Chief EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said on Thursday: “Now is the moment for everyone to bear their responsibilities. You know the British parliament will give its verdict on this text and on the future relationship in the coming days. It is a vote in which the future of their country is at stake.”

Politico's chief Brussels correspondent, David Herszenhorn, told Raw Politics that if the vote does not go May's way, "it is not necessarily a big defeat" for the prime minister.

It is more likely to be a defeat "for the British parliament in general and society as a whole, that has not managed to get its act together on Brexit", he added and that "people will realise Theresa May did her job".

Swedish MEP, Jasenko Selimovic, from the Liberalerna party, told the show that he found any idea to renegotiate the deal at this stage "quite strange".

Selimovic explained that after two years of negotiations, any added time would come as a surprise and that May's deal that a second referendum could be possible.

However, the director of data and polling at Rasmussen Global, Nina Schick, said she did not think another referendum was likely.

She added a more likely scenario would be a no-deal Brexit if "cosmetic changes" could not be added to May's deal.

Meanwhile, Euronews correspondent Bryan Carter went to Scotland and the border in Carlisle to speak to EU nationals and locals.

One Polish mother-of-two said she was "worried like everyone from the EU" about the outcome of Brexit.
