Theresa May to say she won't change tack on Brexit

NEIN NEIN NEIN: May crisis after Salzburg snub

May's combative statement followed a fraught Salzburg summit, at which European Council President Donald Tusk said parts of the U.K.'s plan simply "will not work". So we are at an impasse.

The biggest single obstacle to a deal is the need to maintain an open Irish border.

The Prime Minister said in March that she would not be "buffeted" by calls to walk away from talks, but as the tone of negotiations deteriorated on Thursday, she hinted that she might have changed her mind. May had a chance to sell her plan over dinner on Wednesday but leaders were unimpressed, with some saying she had told them nothing new.

She addressed Northern Ireland and said that she would do everything in her power to prevent a hard border.

May faced headlines on Friday detailing her "humiliation" at an European Union summit in Salzburg, where she was given just weeks to strike a Brexit deal acceptable to the bloc and hardliners at home.

Her statement today was about redressing that situation - to replace the imagery of a stunned prime minister nearly frozen in the headlights, to one composed at a podium, making a statement loaded with calmly-delivered anger.

In a possible sign that she was smarting over Mr Tusk's mocking Instagram photo, showing him offering her a cake with the caption "Sorry, no cherries", Mrs May made a point of stressing that she had always shown respect towards her European Union counterparts.

Pro-EU politicians don't like the Chequers plan either, saying it will cut the UK's vast services sector out of the single market. When the Conservatives meet for their annual conference on September 30, they plan to push May to ditch the Chequers plan or face a challenge to her leadership. Prime Minister May has been resolute so far, making it clear that the government would not back another referendum, arguing that "to ask the question all over again would be a gross betrayal of our democracy and a betrayal of that trust".

Theresa May to say she won't change tack on Brexit

Mrs May appears to have bought herself some breathing space ahead of the Tory conference in eight days' time where she is expected to face demands to abandon her Chequers proposals for Brexit.

"Believe me, as somebody who has been so close to these negotiations I have lived and breathed numerous issues involved", said Davis, adding: "As Germans know as well as anybody, the four freedoms of the single market are sacrosanct and indivisible".

"It has the additional advantage that it will make U.S. firms complain more loudly that Trump's strategy is blocking their access to the China market".

"I don't care what you want your next job to be".

Speaking about the need to work together, May added: "We need to hear from the European Union what the real issues are, and what their alternative is, so we can discuss them and we can make progress".

"If all conventional roads lead to a hard no-deal Brexit, the notion of parliament exerting control and forcing another referendum on us would begin to look not wholly fanciful", Peston wrote in The Spectator.

'That is why for over two years I have worked day and night to deliver a deal that sees the United Kingdom leave the EU.
