Ruth Davidson challenges rivals to back 'astonishing' PM to deliver on Brexit

Ruth Davidson challenges rivals to back 'astonishing' PM to deliver on Brexit

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte labelled the Brexit negotiations "a balancing act" and the leaders will have further opportunities to thrash an agreement out when they meet again in Brussels on October 18 and again in mid-November.

EC President Donald Tusk says the UK PM's plans risk undermining the EU's single market.

Britain and the European Union both want to reach a deal by the end of 2018, to allow enough time for all the bloc's national parliaments to debate and vote on it before the expected Brexit day of 29 March 2019. Macron did not say who he was targeting with his "liars" remark, but Britain's former foreign secretary Boris Johnson and former Brexit negotiator David Davis - who both campaigned strongly for Britain to leave the European Union - resigned in recent months during talks on the divorce deal.

The judgment of British newspapers was brutal.

The Brexit-supporting tabloid Sun branded bloc leaders "EU dirty rats", accusing "Euro mobsters" Tusk and Macron of "ambushing" May.

While both Britain and the European Union agree that imposing a hard Irish border would threaten a very hard-won peace on the island, May insisted that there was no way she could allow anyone to "divide the United Kingdom into two customs territories".

But with time running out for the United Kingdom to reach a deal, Ms Davidson said: "It is absolutely right that people have their say about what sort of Brexit they want, but we are right down to crunch time now, we're talking weeks not months".

Our challenge is to be competitive in 90 minutes over each match'. "I think he's done okay in there", Keown said on BT Sport . Emery has great pedigree in the Europa League , winning the title on three separate occasions with Sevilla.

May's plan involves keeping parts of the single market after Britain leaves the European Union but she has been told it can not be cherry-picked. She insisted that her proposals - the so-called Chequers plan - is the only option left.

She needed to return with an acknowledgement from European leaders that her domestic critics were wrong and that they would accept Chequers as a basis for meaningful talks on a future relationship. For Ireland, it's important not to undermine the hard-won peace after decades of sectarian tensions in neighbouring Northern Ireland.

But Mrs May, whose preferred backstop option is keeping the United Kingdom linked to the EU customs union for an extended period while the issue is solved, continued to insist that she will not allow a border in the Irish sea.

It leaves Mrs May with little defence from circling Brexiteers in her own party, with just over a week until the Conservative conference. 'They left the day after so as not to have to deal with it.' He did not specify who he was referring to but Ukip leader Nigel Farage quit days after the Brexit referendum.

She said she is working towards an October date but privately told Mr Varadkar she did not think she could have proposals on the backstop ready for then.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker sounded nonchalant about the mounting possibility of a no-deal Brexit, saying: "The Commission has prepared in detail all for all the consequences of a no deal".
