Davis threatens to take EU to COURT for harming UK business with NO DEAL continguency plot. The Brexit secretary claimed the Brussels bloc’s preparations for a

no-deal Brexit could jeopardise existing contracts or force British companies to move abroad if the UK leaves without a deal. In a letter to Theresa May, he added

guidance from EU agencies sees the UK becoming a “third country” when it leaves the bloc in March 2019. But Mr Davis also revealed he has consulted lawyers over

the rift and would ask the European Commission to revise the measures to highlight the potential for a future transition period and trade deal. The Brexit boss said the

European Union moves will see the UK treated differently from other member states,

even before it will leave the bloc “in a way which is frequently damaging to UK

interests”.
