ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday (May 29) she was ready to walk away from Brexit negotiations without a deal with the European Union if the agreement wasn't good enough. "We will be there to negotiate the right deal, but what I have said is that no deal is better than a bad deal. We have to be prepared to walk out," she said to applause during a Sky News interview on Monday. By contrast the leader of Britain's main opposition Labour Party said he would ensure there was a Brexit deal with the European Union were he to win power When asked whether he would contemplate a scenario where Britain failed to strike an arrangement with the rest of the bloc, Jeremy Corbyn said: "There's going to be a deal."
