What does the phrase “no deal” mean to you?
Depending on whether your answer is “an anonymous phone call offering me money” or “one of the options MPs are being asked to consider to determine how the UK leaves the EU” will probably show how devoted you are to Brexit.
Similar to any big game show (we’re talking politics now, sorry Deal or No Deal fans), Brexit has had its fair share of twists and turns and dramatic moments since the referendum vote in June 2016.
Whether it’s the “Nick, don’t go!” EastEnders-style moment…
“Nick don't go!”
This is the moment Nick Boles resigned from the Conservative Party last night following more Brexit votes.

Or Brexit making a celebrity out of the grown man that has to shout “order” at MPs in a very dramatic way…

What does it mean?

Media captionNo deal is becoming “more likely” according to the EU’s chief negotiator
No deal means the UK leaving the European Union and cutting ties immediately, with no agreement at all in place.
The EU has previously said a no-deal Brexit would mean border checks would have to be brought in – which would affect things like exports and travel between the UK and EU.
Things like how the UK trades with the EU and the rights of UK citizens living in the EU and visa-versa would also be up in the air.
