UK preparing for no deal Brexit

UK Prime minister Johnson has, a few moments ago, told the UK to prepare for a no deal Brexit as the EU remains staunch in its objections to the UK having a Canada style arrangement of free market access. Johnson instead told the UK to prepare for an Australia style deal which is to say the UK would be trading with the EU on WTO rules which is what Australia has. Johnson did leave a back door to further negotiations by saying he was not going to completely walk away from negotiations in the hope that the EU would soften their requirements.
