Olly Robbins, Theresa May's chief Brexit negotiator

Negotiator: Back deal or expect a long Brexit wait

The Prime Minister's chief Brexit negotiator walks into a bar. No, not the start of a joke - but how Theresa May's latest tactics emerged. Olly Robbins has reportedly claimed that MPs will be presented with a choice between Mrs May's deal and a lengthy delay to Brexit. He was overheard in a hotel bar telling colleagues that "in the end" Brussels would "probably just give us an extension" to Article 50. It suggests that a no-deal Brexit has secretly been taken off the table, something Mrs May has denied. The comments have drawn anger from Brexiteers. Follow live updates and reaction here throughout the day.

But what exactly does a no-deal Brexit mean - and how might it affect daily life in the UK? Peter Foster, our Europe Editor, has the only guide you need.
