LONDON (Reuters) – Britain will not sign up to a bad Brexit deal but its economy will succeed even if it does not get a deal, transport minister Chris Grayling said on Thursday.

“We’re not aiming for a no deal Brexit… but we’re working for all eventualities,” Grayling said, adding he was confident that Britain would get a good deal.

“Regardless of the outcome of this, Britain will succeed,” he told Sky News.
