Brexit: Theresa May offers 'national unity' talks to break deadlock

Prime Minister Theresa May leaves from the rear of 10 Downing Street on Monday

And there is some common ground; there are some areas it's hard to agree on.

She crucially added that she was now willing to bend her previous principles and would listen to proposals for much closer post-Brexit relations with the European Union than most in her Conservative party are ready to accept. One minister quit on Wednesday.

May turned to Labour after a hardcore eurosceptic group of Conservatives repeatedly rejected her divorce deal, saying it would leave Britain a "vassal state".

If Ms Cooper's Bill is passed by the House of Lords, it would create the danger of an "accidental no-deal Brexit" on April 12, Downing Street has warned.

Sterling hit its highest level since March 28.

In either event, Mrs May said she would ask the EU for a further short extension to hopefully get an agreement passed by Parliament before 22 May, so the United Kingdom does not have to take part in European elections.

The British premier's last-minute change of tack has been received cautiously by EU leaders who would love to see the agonising split resolved by the time European Parliament elections roll around at the end of May.

Mr Heaton-Harris' resignation means the Government's Brexit department have lost their minister and senior civil servant handling Britain's no deal preparations.

"[Mr Corbyn] said he preferred to believe Vladimir Putin than our own security agencies" she said, as Mr Corbyn shook his head, adding: "That is not the place of somebody who should be Prime Minister".

May stated the meeting with Corbyn would be in the context of agreeing on the original Brexit document which would include the Northern Ireland backstop and result in an open border between Ireland north and south.

The Prime Minister is expected to address the nation shortly as tension mounts in Westminster over what the Cabinet might have decided.

But Labour is far from united itself.

Theresa May has offered Jeremy Corbyn a "national unity" approach to breaking the Brexit deadlock, inviting Jeremy Corbyn into talks to decide the shape of the UK's future relationship with the EU.

The letter is further evidence that the Labour Party is facing a major split over the question of a second referendum.

The spokesman acknowledged that time was running out to find a way to break the impasse in parliament over Brexit, and said that legally binding changes to the proposed future relationship with the European Union could reduce Labour's concerns about the separate Withdrawal Agreement.

May said she would step down to make way for a successor in time for the next phase of negotiations if her deal were agreed to. But most lawmakers are opposed to leaving without a deal.

The Prime Minister was forced to change her European Union withdrawal strategy after crisis Cabinet talks on Tuesday, following the repeated rejection of her proposed Brexit deal, and invited the Labour leader for talks in an attempt to break the Brexit stalemate.

MPs have reacted furiously over the past 24 hours following two bombshell announcements from the Prime Minister at Downing Street last night. This article is strictly for informational purposes only.
