Compromise? Time ticking down for UK on Brexit deal

Theresa May

The question over timing is vital because Britain is set to leave the European Union without a withdrawal deal in place on April 12 unless an agreement is reached at a Brussels summit set to take place two days earlier.

"My intention is to reach an agreement with European leaders, which will mean that once we negotiate a deal here at home, we will be able to leave the EU within six weeks", she said.

Her Conservative Party is deeply divided, as is the main opposition Labour Party, leading to a bewildering marathon of inconclusive votes in parliament that stretched Britain's centuries-old unwritten constitution to its limits.

France had "taken note" of the formal request that Britain had made on Friday for an extension to June 30th, the source said, adding: "We are waiting for a credible plan between now and the (EU) summit on April 10th, when we will study the request".

"If the PM bends to Mr Corbyn's whims now, we can kiss goodbye to the opportunities Brexit offers us".

Labour favors a softer form of Brexit than the government has advocated.

But Long-Bailey said Labour had, as yet, heard nothing about how this could happen: "We haven't had any discussions really as to what a next stage would be, and the government hasn't confirmed whether they want to adopt that approach or look at more flexible approaches". The House of Commons on Wednesday approved a bill to ensure May can't go back on her promise to seek a delay to Brexit rather than let Britain tumble out of the bloc.

"It is frustrating that we have not yet brought this process to a successful and orderly conclusion", May wrote in her letter requesting a deadline extension to Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, which is comprised of the heads of states of EU members.

The travel documents had dark blue covers from 1921, but Britain switched to burgundy from 1988, in common with other members of the-then European Community.

MPs have rejected Mrs May's Brexit plan three times and last week's talks between the two parties were aimed at trying to find a proposal which could break the deadlock in the Commons before an emergency European Union summit on Wednesday.

Any further delay to Brexit will inevitably be long and the United Kingdom will have to prepare to hold European elections if it is sought, he said.

Several leaders also said they would require assurances of good behaviour in return for another delay.

This change from her famous character was a bit less surprising once she admitted that she didn't remember much about the show. John Bradley , who plays Jon Snow's best friend Samwell Tarly , was questioning what happens to him on the show.

Speaking during a visit to south Wales to mark his party's victory in the Newport West by-election, Jeremy Corbyn said: "There's been no obvious move on the side of the Government as of yet, we're continuing those talks". That would mean tariffs and other barriers to trade together with the capacity for boundary gridlock and deficits of products, between the bloc and Britain.

So May had no choice but to open talks with Labour, given that the alternative was to contradict her own position and the will of Parliament by accepting an economically damaging no-deal Brexit.

The leaders of European Union member countries are due to meet in Brussels Wednesday - two days before the April 12 deadline - to consider Britain's request for a second extension.

"A no-deal outcome is bad for the UK".

The EP's Committee on Civil Liberties proposed Wednesday that after Brexit, British citizens would be able to enter European Union countries visa-free for short periods, "provided European Union nationals enjoy the same conditions when travelling to the UK" said a committee statement.

The EU would welcome a move by Britain to keep close post-Brexit economic ties. But the specter of her striking a bargain with Jeremy Corbyn, regarded by Tories as a hard-left Marxist, has caused outrage among some ministers and MPs, particularly those who are preparing to stand for Conservative leader when May eventually steps down.

Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay said the government would accept a soft Brexit if parliament voted for it. The bottom line is still clear - the Good Friday Agreement and frictionless border needs to be protected.
