Britain, EU are close to achieving orderly Brexit deal: May

The border between Londonderry and Donegal at Bridgend

EU Council president Donald Tusk is alleged to have shut down any opportunity for debate and insisted the heads of state will discuss their response without her present.

The national campaign for a second referendum on whether Britain should leave the European Union on the terms being negotiated by the British government set out six scenarios in which such a vote would be possible, as it sought new momentum and show that the referendum - long talked about in theory - was practically possible.

"Make no mistake then, all the noises from the EU27 are that they are not backing down", concludes Politico's Jack Blanchard. If we were to go back on that vote, it would destroy trust in politicians'.

He told radio station LBC that "we now need the European Union side to move in our direction", adding: "I think the opportunity is there for the PM to explain, spell out, why it is a win-win deal, good for Britain, good for the EU".

She added: "We held a people's vote - it was the referendum in 2016".

"I voted for a proper Brexit, a clean Brexit that gives us control of our destiny, yes a little bit of short-term pain but for the long-term good".

Labour MP Alison McGovern said: "This has changed everything".

In extracts of a speech he plans to deliver in Munich on Thursday, Davis said the PM's plan crossed all of her own negotiating red lines.

Carmakers are anxious that port and motorway holdups could slow the movement of components and finished models, crippling output and adding costs, if Britain fails to reach agreement with the European Union over its departure from the bloc on March 29.

'I'm not going to be pushed away from doing what is necessary to get the right deal for Britain.

'The plan that is on the table to take us forward, the plan that delivers on the Brexit vote but also protects jobs and maintains the unity of the United Kingdom is the Chequers plan.

The former soldier told the paper he was joining the hardline Brexiteer European Research Group (ERG), saying: "I've come to the conclusion that this "put up, shut up" attitude of the Prime Minister's - "it's Chequers or nothing, you do as you're told or else" - is a massive insult, not only to my colleagues but also to the voters". For most people, they want Brexit done and they want to feel the country at last has come together. "The third thing is that we need to have a real retirement agreement by November".

Meanwhile, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said she hopes there will be a Brexit which takes place with respect and in a "good atmosphere", while Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz stressed the need for a deal to be reached, in order to avoid both sides getting hurt.

"Neither side can demand the unacceptable of the other, such as an external customs border between different parts of the United Kingdom - which no other country would accept if they were in the same situation - or the UK seeking the rights of European Union membership without the obligations", she wrote.

Maintaining an open border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland has been one of the thorniest issues in the Brexit negotiations.

But now, Mr Barnier, revealed, there was a Plan B; an "improved" proposal.

Speaking at a news conference in Brussels, Barnier said: 'It is then we shall see whether agreement we are hoping for is in our grasp.

"October is the key point in time; it is the moment of truth", declared Mr Barnier.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar told reporters before the dinner that there had been no advance on the issue: "I don't think we're any closer to a withdrawal agreement than we were in March, so I can't report any progress, unfortunately".
