United Kingdom should rejoin EU after Brexit: EU Commission chief

Irish PM denies 'plot' against Brexit

European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker offered a new twist in his campaign to keep Britain part of the EU.

"Tusk and I once again reached out to the British government and said that if the British people, the British Parliament, the British government, wish for another way than Brexit, we would be prepared to discuss it".

Addressing EU lawmakers, Tusk quoted U.K. Brexit envoy David Davis as saying that "if a democracy can not change its mind, it ceases to be a democracy".

".Brexit is a lose-lose situation not only for Brexit but also for Europe.Most of the deputies believe that it is a problem only for Britain", Henkel said reiterating Juncker's phrase, before adding: "It is at least as much as a problem for the continent. Our hearts are still open to you".

Juncker's comment about possible re-accession comes a day after European Council President Donald Tusk said that the bloc's "hearts were still open" if Britain made a decision to change its mind about leaving the EU. Juncker cited the EU treaty's Article 49, which invites any European state that respects the bloc's values to apply for accession and precedes Article 50 governing the process for leaving.

Leading British anti-EU campaigner Nigel Farage rowed back on Wednesday from remarks favoring a second referendum on Brexit, a week after he unleashed a new round of debate and a chorus of invitations from European politicians for Britain to reconsider. When we talk about democracy, I really do appreciate why he doesn't fully understand it.

Uber to introduce mandatory break for United Kingdom drivers
If a driver is waiting for a request, sitting in an airport queue or driving without a passenger, however, this will not be included in the 10-hour limit.

Responding to criticisms that the European Union still does not understand the eurosceptic sentiments that led to Brexit, Juncker admitted that "the guilt lies on many" for the fact that Britain "never felt entirely comfortable" in the bloc.

"I don't want a second referendum on Brexit".

"The British people had a very binary question, in or out, they decided out and now that's what we are going to deliver".

A second referendum on Brexit has been ruled out by Prime Minister Theresa May and is also not backed by opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. We are not throwing the British out.

Juncker and Tusk's overtures came as a commission paper suggested the European Union is toughening its stance on the transition period after the official Brexit date of March 29, 2019.
