Brexit: PM May holds out possibility of compromise with opposition Labour party

May is battling to contain a backlash from within her Conservative Party over her decision to work with Labour Party leader Corbyn, someone she's spent three years deriding.

He said that if Labour could not sign up to a joint approach, then MPs should be forced to find a compromise through a preferential voting system in order to resolve the situation.

She's requested an extension to the Brexit process until June 30, but says if MPs agree to a deal, the United Kingdom should be able to leave before European parliamentary elections are held on May 23. She also said the idea of a departure extension long enough to require the United Kingdom to hold European elections would be "utterly unacceptable".

'But at the same time Parliament has also said that they don't want us to leave without a deal. - with no deal.

"The majority of our members have told us, in no uncertain terms, that the current situation of short-term extensions and prolonged ambiguity can not continue", wrote Make UK chief executive Stephen Phipson.

"Some people in the Labour Party are making other suggestions to us, of course we have to be prepared to discuss them". "I'm waiting to see the red lines move".

Her latest intervention comes amid a mounting mutiny within her own Conservative Party for sitting down with Corbyn to thrash out a solution, which will inevitably take the form of a so-called soft Brexit given Labour's preference for a common Customs Union with the EU as part of any future relationship with the economic bloc.

Conservative lawmakers, among others, are becoming increasingly concerned as the third day of negotiations between May and the opposing Labour Party ended with no clear plan for the future.

She added that both sides agreed the talks are not yet over, but there were no firm commitments for when further discussions might take place.

Rick Barnes "A Serious Candidate" For UCLA Job
Tennessee men's basketball coach Rick Barnes has emerged as a candidate for the vacant UCLA job, sources told ESPN. The Bruins have been looking for a permanent head coach to replace Steve Alford, who was sacked in December.

Britain's biggest shift in foreign and trade policy in more than 40 years is mired in uncertainty, with ministers saying Brexit may never happen, businesses anxious the country could leave without a deal, and others just wanting to reverse it. "I think if we had that vote tomorrow, I believe Leave would win".

The prime minister is due to travel to Brussels on Wednesday afternoon for the emergency European council summit, but a comprehensive package required by the EU to permit a further delay to Brexit does not seem achievable, at present.

European Union members, who must unanimously back any further delay, are growing increasingly impatient at the dysfunction in Westminster and want a clear plan to resolve it.

The Prime Minister said: "Because Parliament has made clear it will stop the United Kingdom leaving without a deal, we now have a stark choice: leave the European Union with a deal or do not leave at all".

"My intention is to reach an agreement with European leaders, which will mean that once we negotiate a deal here at home, we will be able to leave the EU within six weeks", she said.

Mr Hammond acknowledged the frustration with the British among the 27 other European Union members.

"The sad thing is at the moment, we haven't seen overall any real changes to the deal, but we are hopeful that will change in coming days, and we are willing to continue the talks as we know the government are", Long-Bailey told the BBC.

'And I can understand that, because after all it's almost three years since people voted in the referendum, for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.
