Theresa May: It's my Brexit deal or no deal at all

  • Prime Minister Theresa May

Number 10 has repeatedly ruled out staying in the EEA, which would keep Britain in the single market, warning it would mean continued free movement of migrants and was not true to the spirit of the referendum result.

The markets, which have been highly sensitive to recent Brexit developments, reacted positively to news of European Union flexibility which makes a Brexit deal more likely.

The report notes that a no-deal Brexit would have "significant consequences for the United Kingdom and the European Union", adding: "We remain of the view that this would be chaotic and damaging for the United Kingdom economy and would leave many businesses facing huge uncertainty".

The news comes as ministers released a raft of documents revealing the effects Brexit could have on ordinary people if no deal is struck.

Presenting a report on the UK economy to the UK Treasury on Monday, IMF managing director Christine Lagarde said: "Any Brexit deal will not be as good as the current smooth process by which goods, people and services move now".

Mr Barnier is proposing using.

Writing in the Observer newspaper, Khan said British Prime Minister Theresa May's government looked "unprepared and out of its depth" in negotiations with Brussels on its future relationship with the EU.

That would see goods tracked using a barcode and undergo customs checks on ferries or on arrival at factories, according to a separate report in the Financial Times.

But Mrs May said it was the government's job to "make sure we make a success of no-deal, just as we make a success of getting a good deal".

United Kingdom 'closing in' on Brexit deal with Brussels, suggests Raab
In his column for the Telegraph, Mr Raab said the technical papers would include plans for "protecting consumers from mobile phone roaming charges".

The fate of May's government and her Brexit plan is in doubt because it is unclear whether she could command the 320 votes she needs in the House of Commons, the lower house of the British parliament, to approve a deal.

She was also critical of a plan by Brexiteers to resolve the Irish border issue, saying it would create a "hard border 20km inside Ireland".

The backstop deadlock is being used to force the United Kingdom into becoming a vassal state and the talks are on course to end in a "spectacular political auto crash", according to the former foreign secretary.

Mrs May will attempt to persuade European Union leaders of the merits of her plans at a summit in Salzburg on Thursday.

"Once we take back control of our borders and "Vote Leave", we can have an immigration system that is fair to all and allows us to bring in the brightest and the best from across the world", she said.

European Union chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier signalled his willingness to adapt the backstop when he spoke to MPs at Westminster earlier this month.

Brussels and London have failed to resolve "fundamental" aspects of Brexit and this could leave London defaulting to World Trade Organization (WTO) tariffs, the International Monetary Fund said in its annual outlook on the United Kingdom economy.

May admitted in a BBC interview to be broadcast on Monday that she gets "irritated" by the debate over her leadership during the hard negotiations.

UUP MEP Jim Nicholson said unionists' first priority must be that "the constitutional integrity" of the Union wasn't "diminished by Brexit - deal or no deal".
