Malta’s prime minister Joseph Muscat has said any EU deal would be ‘inferior to membership’
Mr Muscat has been on the inside track of Brexit talks as Malta has held the presidency of the European council for the last six months.
And he told Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant: “For the first time, I’m starting to believe that Brexit will not happen.
“I am seeing hopeful signs that indicate things will change. I see encouraging signs that the tide is turning.
“I’m not saying the Brits have made a mistake, but the mood is changing.”
But he claimed there would be no solution to Brexit.
“The referendum was democratic, but has resulted in a situation in which everyone loses,” he said.
The final deal we secure with the EU is set to be put to MPs to vote on at the end of the process, but Mr Muscat wants it to be put to the people too.
