Brexit: Theresa May offers cross-party talks to break deadlock

The EU could not become "the hostage to the solution to a political crisis in the UK", said the French president.

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.

Mrs May was speaking after a five-hour Cabinet meeting at Downing Street had ran over into a seventh hour.

THE PRIME Minister has announced that she will seek a further extension of Article 50, delaying Brexit once again.


"I have always been clear that we could make a success of no-deal in the long term but leaving with a deal is the best solution".

Hinds tells the BBC that the deal "is a good balance, and I hope colleagues can get behind it".

The EU would have to agree to any further delay to the Article 50 negotiating period, and have said Britain would need to give a reason for the delay.

"And we need to be clear what such an extension is for, to ensure we leave in a timely and orderly way".

'This debate, this division, can not drag on much longer'. "It is doing damage to our politics".

Mrs May added: "Today I'm taking action to break the logjam".

Apparently, last Tuesday, she was called in at the end of her shift, was sacked on the spot, and was escorted out of the hospital. But police found inconsistencies in Smollett's account, and on February 21 charged him with making a false police report.

He said the question of whether the United Kingdom takes part in the European Union elections was not the most important question, rather that the most important issue was "to make sure we don't crash out of the European Union next week with no deal, and what I believe would be a degree of chaos that would follow as a result".

"Any plan would have to agree the current Withdrawal Agreement".

"Any plan would have to agree the current Withdrawal Agreement - it has already been negotiated with the 27 other members and the European Union has repeatedly said it can not and will not be re-opened".

He said these could include an election, second referendum, or alternative proposals for the future relationship, such as a customs union.

If they do not agree a single way forward, she proposed putting a number of options to MPs "to determine which course to pursue".

A cross-group of parliamentarians, including Conservative Sir Oliver Letwin and Labour's Yvette Cooper, will on Wednesday bring forward a bill instructing the Prime Minister to request an extension to the negotiating time beyond 12 April.

The UK must exit the EU before 22 May to avoid having to take part in European elections.

"This is a hard time for everyone".

"In the end, I trust the British people to be able to deliver their verdict on Theresa May's deal".
