Theresa May prepares to head to Europe to seek a Brexit extension

Britons in France CAN use UK driving licences in case of no-deal Brexit

On her 1,001st day in office, the Prime Minister will hold talks with Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron as European leaders prepare to issue the United Kingdom with a set of demands in exchange for an extension of Article 50, to avoid a no-deal Brexit on Friday.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Theresa May take part in a European Union leaders summit in Brussels, Belgium December 13, 2018.

He spoke as the government and Labour continued cross-party talks in a bid to break the Brexit impasse.

The move comes as Mrs May continues negotiations with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn over a deal his party can support through the House of Commons.

Britain will fall out of the European Union without a deal on Friday if no delay agreement is reached.

A Number 10 spokeswoman said that contacts with Labour on a potential compromise deal were continuing, and Downing Street hopes that this will result in further formal face-to-face talks.

There are serious concerns that the prime minister's deal with Mr Corbyn will hinge on the United Kingdom remaining in a customs union with the EU, which would go against the Conservative election manifesto and was one of Mrs May's infamous "red lines" in negotiations with Brussels.

Asked last night if the government was being serious about the discussions, Mr Corbyn said: "Talks have to mean a movement and so far there has been no change in those red lines".

May will meet the two leaders on Tuesday, their offices announced on Monday, the day before the summit where she is expected to ask the bloc for another delay to Brexit.

"It'll mean compromise on both sides but I believe that delivering Brexit is the most important thing for us", she said in a video message released on Sunday.

The UK remains bitterly divided around Brexit.

Mr Macron has previously spoken out against offering the British a Brexit extension, stating that the United Kingdom must provide a "credible alternative plan backed by a majority" to avoid a No Deal Brexit.

The spokesman noted that the final decision on May's request will be made by all 27 remaining members of the EU.

A Brexiteer told Nigel Farage why he now wants Brexit scrapped.

"The British authorities and the British parliament need to understand that (the EU) is not going to be able to constantly exhaust itself with the ups and downs of domestic British politics", he said. However, other European Union leaders have taken a softer line on granting an extension and the final decision is likely to be taken at a "pre-meeting" of six of the most powerful leaders before the summit.
