We’re ready to come up with a better backstop proposal — European Union negotiator

European leaders gathered in the Austrian city of Salzburg on Wednesday evening for the start of an informal two-day summit.

At a summit dinner at the Felsenreitschule theater - known to film fans for a scene in the musical "The Sound of Music" - May will make another pitch for support for her Chequers plan.

Most checks can take place away from the border, at company premises, or the market, ' Barnier said of customs and regulatory checks on goods that might move from British mainland to Northern Ireland.

Mrs May's approach to the Brexit negotiations received fresh criticism at home while she was in Austria from one of her former supporters. They will discuss the issue among themselves over lunch on Thursday, setting what Barnier hopes can be a path to a final deal in two months.

"I believe that I have put forward serious and workable proposals".

Speaking to the Daily Express, she said: 'Brexit gives us the opportunity to build a better future and to help people to realise the British dream.

"I'm confident that, with goodwill and determination, we can agree a deal that right for both parties". It's the first full gathering of the EU28 since May unveiled her Chequers plan - named after her country residence where it was presented to ministers - in July. "There is no progress", Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite told Reuters after the dinner.

"It was polite", said a senior European Union diplomat.

Theresa May is heading to Salzburg with encouraging words from the European Union's chief negotiator ringing in her ears.

GOP senator wants Kavanaugh, accuser to testify
Even if Democrats peel off the one Republican vote to not recommend Kavanaugh to the full Senate, Republicans have another option. But so far, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley , R-Iowa, has yet to say he's even considering delaying the vote.

"This is one small step for the minister but a giant stride for our campaign to deliver a people's vote", she said, as quoted by The Independent. There was no reaction. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. "And that's starting to have a psychological effect".

However, he is still not pessimistic of reaching a deal with Britain.

Despite the shortened time slot, the Prime Minister appeared optimistic about the meeting in Salzburg tomorrow - and insisted her Chequers plan was the only realistic Brexit plan in the eyes of the EU.

The EU criticized proposals within May's Chequers plan at the summit on Tuesday, warning that they needed to be "reworked and further negotiated".

The Salzburg meeting came as campaigners in the United Kingdom published a roadmap setting out how MPs could force the Prime Minister to accept what they call a People's Vote on her deal, with the option of remaining in the EU.

Carmakers are anxious that port and motorway holdups could slow the movement of components and finished models, crippling output and adding costs, if Britain fails to reach agreement with the European Union over its departure from the bloc on March 29. She will also have a face-to-face meeting with Varadkar.

Her pitch at the end of the meal lasted roughly 10 minutes but there was no debate - European Union leaders will instead return to the subject of Brexit tomorrow lunchtime where they will discuss the issue without the British leader present.

"I think this is going to be at the core of the debate in Salzburg". So, instead of taking political advantage of the situation, we should focus on what works and just get on with it.
