EU warns Britain to ‘rework’ Brexit plans

Will Dover be ready for Brexit

"I now call on the Labour leadership to rule out a second referendum and stop trying to frustrate the Brexit process".

The Prime Minister will address leaders of the other EU nations at a meeting in Salzburg tomorrow but will be given a brief time slot - despite European leaders being in the Austrian city for two days.

And she has said she will not accept an EU proposal that would keep Northern Ireland in a customs union with the bloc if there is no other plan in place to prevent a hard border across the island of Ireland.

Her comments came just hours after Tusk said that on key issues "the UK's proposals will need to be reworked and further negotiated".

The UK auto industry has demanded Brexit negotiators rule out a "no-deal" scenario immediately, to avoid costly damage to the sector across Europe.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar told reporters before the dinner that there had been no advance on the issue: "I don't think we're any closer to a withdrawal agreement than we were in March, so I can't report any progress, unfortunately". However, he said he hoped she would offer "a step forward" during the informal dinner talks Wednesday.

The national campaign for a second referendum on whether Britain should leave the European Union on the terms being negotiated by the British government set out six scenarios in which such a vote would be possible, as it sought new momentum and show that the referendum - long talked about in theory - was practically possible.

"We can not afford a 'no deal" Brexit.

But in a blow to her efforts to persuade fellow leaders of the viability of her plan, it emerged her former Brexit secretary David Davis had described Chequers as a "non-starter".

He said: "Chequers is devoid of democracy altogether. This is why many of us will shortly be presenting an alternative plan which will outline a more ambitious vision".

Britain has been told it must "rework" its proposals on the Irish border as the Brexit negotiations enter a "decisive phase".

The Dutch prime minister, Mark Rutte, whose country is an advocate for offering May a counter-proposal in the coming weeks, said that avoiding cherry-picking by the British, while keeping them close, and avoiding a no deal scenario was a hard balancing act.

How to avoid border checks, involving the return of physical infrastructure for customs and standards when the United Kingdom leaves the EU's single market and customs union, remains unresolved.

But the Democratic Unionist Party, which props up Mrs May's minority administration in Parliament, dismissed Mr Barnier's proposals as unpalatable because they would involve a customs border between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.

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".

EU negotiators say the problem is not only about customs but also ensuring the goods coming into the EU are produced according to EU rules, which Britain wants to shed.

Despite May insisting the choice was between her deal or no deal, Treasury minister Mel Stride appeared to suggest that a second poll was still a possibility.

"She is playing a game of Russian Roulette with the country which is frankly an insult to the referendum result and all those people who voted, no matter how they voted".

Earlier, the Czech prime minister, Andrej Babiš, had said he would like to see Britain hold a second referendum on membership of the EU.

'I believe that what we're proposing is the Brexit that delivers the freedoms that people voted for - making our own laws, controlling our own borders, controlling our money.
