BRUSSELS: The European Commission said Thursday that there was still “no white smoke” on a Brexit deal and set a limit of Sunday for British Prime Minister Theresa May to return to Brussels with an acceptable deal. “So far no white smoke. The Vatican sends up white smoke when a new pope is chosen. Time is now running out for a deal on Brexit divorce terms, which would allow the opening of talks on a future trade deal at a summit of EU leaders in Brussels on December 14-15. They could then approve those guidelines at EU summits due in February, or failing that in March, sources said.
