Call for second Brexit vote grows stronger

Video Matthias Schrader EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, arrives at the informal EU summit in Salzburg Aus

May had arrived in Salzburg hoping that European Union leaders would offer some warm but vague words to ensure that her plan remained intact through the Conservative party conference, before entering the critical phase of the divorce talks between mid October and mid November.

Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, said there could be "no compromise" on the integrity of the single market, the bloc's economic free-trade zone.

"With just weeks to go until a deal must be struck, the Prime Minister can not keep ignoring this reality".

Tariffs of 10 percent under World Trade Organization rules would add an average of 3,000 euros to the cost of British-built cars sold in the EU if fully passed on to buyers, and 1,700 euros to the cost of a European vehicle imported into Britain, the SMMT said.

- Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said his country is better prepared for a no-deal Brexit than Britain and an agreement is "not easy" because of Mrs May's red lines.

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.

With barely six months until Britain leaves the bloc, at the risk of serious disruption if there is no deal to tie up legal loose ends, there is pressure on both sides: "You can hear very clearly the clock ticking in the room", said the second diplomat.

A British government source said London welcomed the EU's commitment to finding a solution to the border issue, but could not accept any proposal that would effectively move the customs frontier into the Irish Sea.

Jeff Sessions praises Trump. Trump says Sessions doesn't exist
Last month, Mr Trump accused the attorney general of having failed to take control of the justice department. Trump has previously suggested he is unlikely to fire Sessions before the midterm elections in November.

Then we will decide whether conditions are there to call an extraordinary summit in November to finalise and formalise the deal.

Many lawmakers in May's ruling Conservative Party have voiced strong objections to her Brexit proposals, raising suggestions that even if she strikes a deal with European Union leaders, the agreement would be rejected.

That could would lead to Britain crashing out of the European Union on Brexit day, a development that in theory could see flights parked and trade between the two sides grind to a halt.

The government source said: "We have been very clear that what we can not accept is Northern Ireland being separated off from the United Kingdom customs territory".

"Chequers goes pop", declared Jacob Rees-Mogg, the chairman of the hard Brexit European Research Group, on Twitter.

A second said May seemed to be edging toward compromise, offering new proposals on how to avoid differing economic regulations disrupting trade and speaking of a "middle way": "She spoke".

Yet, with May's assurance that Parliament will get a meaningful say not written into law, and with no definitive evidence of such a concession being made other than the testimony of the so-called Tory rebels, it remains to be seen whether the Prime Minister will stay true to her word.

"It took place in June of 2016". But that backstop can not divide the United Kingdom into two customs territories, and we will be bringing forward our own proposals shortly.
