Labor Will Challenge UK PM on Brexit Deal, Corbyn Says

Labor Will Challenge UK PM on Brexit Deal, Corbyn Says

"If the EU's view is that just by saying no to every proposal made by the United Kingdom, we will eventually capitulate and end up either with a Norway option or indeed staying in the European Union. then they've profoundly misjudged he British people", Jeremy Hunt told BBC radio.

"We may be polite, but we have a bottom line".

The Sunday Times reported one of Mrs May's team asked a Tory election expert: 'What are you doing in November - because I think we are going to need an election'. He said Britain would not "flit from plan to plan like some sort of diplomatic butterfly".

Initial reactions from across the English Channel suggested France and Germany were digging in, too.

Leading Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg welcomed the PM's "strong and forthright" tone, but said it was time for her to ditch Chequers and go for a simple Canada-style free trade agreement with the EU.

So she hit back hard in a televised address from her Downing Street office, challenging Brussels to make the next move in these deadlocked Brexit negotiations. After weeks of both sides making positive noises about prospects of clinching a divorce deal and their future trading relationship, the mood turned sour on Thursday in Salzburg, Austria, when the bloc's leaders, one by one, came out to criticise May's Chequers plans. With no solution on the table, the prime minister has nowhere left to turn.

Ms Sturgeon said: "The Prime Minister's statement was terrible".

The paper also reports another member of her inner circle has told cabinet ministers she is likely to stand down next summer - a move created to stop them resigning now to replace her.

Michael Russell, Scotland's minister for all things Brexit, is right to demand an apology for the prime minister's shameful attitude.

Andy Murray has chose to end his comeback season early, saying he wants to be "the best shape possible" for the start of the 2019 season.

But Mr Tusk in a fresh statement on Friday evening said: "The European Union and its leaders fully respect the UK's decision expressed in the referendum on leaving the EU".

The new backstop wouldn't, in reality, be very different in substance.

In a statement in London, a day after European Union leaders used their meeting to tell her that her approach won't work, May told them it was "not acceptable to simply reject" her plan.

Mrs May remains wedded to the Chequers blueprint, which is the only proposal on the table as the deadline approaches, although she indicated the United Kingdom will unveil new measures on the future status of the border in a bid to break the deadlock.

He said the proposal, which would effectively see Northern Ireland remain in the single market requiring customs checks on goods moving to and from the British mainland, would effectively mean the break-up of the UK. She still clings to it as the basis for a Brexit deal only because her Government has been unable to come up with an alternative.

"We've had far bigger challenges in our history".

The deputy leader of the UK's Labour party said he felt "ashamed" of the anti-Semitism storm that engulfed the party over the summer and said that it was up to him and party leader Jeremy Corbyn to unite Labour's members, in an interview published Saturday.

Mr Corbyn told an eve-of-conference rally in Liverpool: "If this Government can't deliver, then I say to Theresa May: the best way to settle this is to have a general election".
