United Kingdom foreign minister Hunt urges EU: Get serious in Brexit talks - global

United Kingdom foreign minister Hunt urges EU: Get serious in Brexit talks - global

"A piece of cake, perhaps?" Tusk wrote alongside the picture.

The newspaper reports speculation that Work and Pensions secretary Esther McVey, who voted to Leave in the referendum, may walk out of the meeting if there is no Plan B offered. But it would abandon the bloc's right to the free movement of people and see Britain adopt its own migration policy.

1 When is the Brexit deadline?

Hours earlier in a strongly-worded statement at Downing Street, Mrs May said her plan had been rejected by Mr Tusk without him properly explaining why it was unacceptable or offering an alternative. "That's the message we have tried to send for several months now to our British counterparts, who may have thought we were going to say "yes" to whatever deal they came up with".

2 What is the transition period? If there is no divorce agreement, there will be no transition.

Mrs May said that Brussels's "backstop" proposal to keep Northern Ireland in the European Union customs area unless a better solution can be found was "unacceptable" to Britain because it would create a customs border down the Irish Sea.

May's address to the nation was triggered by the humiliatingly blunt rejection of her Chequers plan at a summit in Salzburg, where Tusk had declared that it "will not work".

European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier has also been deeply critical of the plan, which Mrs May hopes could form the basis of a political agreement on trade to be included in the divorce deal.

The PM also pointed to Northern Ireland as a sticking point in the current Brexit negotiations, saying the Government "will do everything in our power to prevent a return to a hard border".

Arlene Foster, the head of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party which supports May's government, welcomed May's tough stance against "disrespectful, intransigent and disgraceful" behaviour by the EU.

There is still no agreement on some issues, including how to avoid new checks on the Northern Ireland-Republic of Ireland border.

She said she wanted an agreement, but "I have always said no deal is better than a bad deal".

United started the season in poor form, losing two of their opening three Premier League matches. He was named in the PFA Team of The Year in that first season, and again in 2017/18.

The pound's fall against the dollar and the euro deepened following Mrs May's statement.

"What we need to be doing in a situation like this is bringing people together", he told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme.

"When two hedgehogs embrace, they have to watch out that they don't get scratched", he told the Austrian daily Die Presse.

"We need serious engagement and we stand ready". "I will not overturn the result of the referendum nor will I break up my country", she said.

The Minister of overseas Affairs of nice Britain Jeremy hunt referred to as on the European Union leaders to "change the tone" in talks with Britain on withdrawal from the European Union, stories radio "Bi-bi-si four".

Cabinet minister Penny Mordaunt said she believed that voters "still want a deal but (are) content to go without one".

The clock ticks on towards the March 29, 2019 deadline, and the options available have yet again shrunk.

Mrs May continued to insist last Friday that there were only two options on the table: Trying to find a compromise on her proposal or no deal at all.

"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.

"That would make a mockery of the referendum we had two years ago".

The worldwide development minister, Penny Mordaunt, was also tipped as a possible resignation candidate, though the newspaper said friends denied she would resign.
