United Kingdom foreign minister offers Brexit reassurance to Toyota

"If that happens, the Brexit Party won't win the European elections but it will win the general election because the betrayal will be so complete and utter, so I don't believe it's going to happen".

But Brexit co-ordinator Guy Verhofstadt said the six-month extension was too short for change and too far away to prompt action.

"I want to remind everybody that the United Kingdom has the right and obligation to take part in this election as long as it remains in the EU", Tusk said.

The 1998 peace deal led to the end of the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

"We should approach this seriously as United Kingdom members of the European Parliament will be there for several months - maybe longer".

But automakers Honda and Nissan have said they are axing production at plants in Britain, while electronics giants Sony and Panasonic are scaling back operations and major Japanese banks are pulling out. I am speaking about this today because I have strongly opposed the idea that during this further extension the United Kingdom should be treated as a second category member state.

"Instead of sending May back to London with no extension or ultimately a very short one - a few days, a week - you gave her six months", Verhofstadt said, after warning of a potential breakdown in European Union unity over the issue. "No, it can not", he said.

A second call came from another person at the scene who reported a medical emergency involving a large bird, said Lt. The Alachua County Fire Rescue Department told the Gainesville Sun that a cassowary mauled Hajos when he fell.

The extension of Article 50 - the process by which the United Kingdom leaves the European Union - gave the United Kingdom time to cancel its departure if that was what the British people wanted, Mr Tusk said. "But we don't know if they are going to work". "We must continue to deal with Brexit with an open mind, and in a civilised manner".

The European commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, called on Britain to remain a cooperative and loyal member state during its extra period in the bloc.

May was forced to ask fellow European Union leaders earlier this month to postpone Brexit for a second time, from April 12 to Oct 31.

Giving an account of last week's summit to the European Parliament in Strasbourg, European Council President Tusk said he was responding to a statement by one national leader who had warned "dreamers" not to think "Brexit could be reversed".

He urged the United Kingdom government and the Labour Party to reach a cross-party consensus in the "coming days".

The British government will resume talks with the main opposition Labour party this week on how to resolve the deadlock over Brexit, a senior minister, David Lidington, said on Sunday.

He told the BBC they had a "fair bit in common" over future customs objectives but further compromise was needed.
