PM meeting with President Sassoli of the European Parliament: 8 October 2019

Northern Ireland Secretary Julian Smith said: "I am clear that any threat on withdrawing security co-operation with Ireland is unacceptable".

There is not much time remaining to reach a deal by the European Union summit next week, with Leo Varadkar saying it will be "very hard".

Belgian MEP Guy Verhofstadt said issues about the future relationship between Britain and the European Union will remain and perhaps prove more intractable in a no-deal Brexit scenario.

Mrs Foster said reports that the German chancellor said that Northern Ireland should remain in the Customs Union forever were "beyond crazy".

'There are some fundamental objectives that haven't changed for the past three years and we need them guaranteed, ' he told RTE news.

If he does not succeed, the Benn Act passed by opposition and rebel MPs last month will force him to ask for a further Brexit delay from Brussels.

Jean-Claude Juncker went on to say that if negotiations fail, "the explanation will be found in the British camp" adding: 'The original sin is found on the islands and not on the continent'.

The chief eurocrat's remarks came on the same day that Angela Merkel told the Prime Minister Northern Ireland must remain in "full alignment forever" with the European Union during a tetchy phone call. Brussels responded by accusing Johnson of trying to play a "stupid blame game".

"At stake is the future of Europe and the United Kingdom as well as the security and interests of our people", he tweeted.

Mr Johnson spoke to Mrs Merkel about his plan to resolve the Brexit deadlock over the border in Ireland.

Sterling slid against the euro and the United States dollar after a sell-off was triggered by a statement from Downing Street, highlighting that the Prime Minister had a hard conversation on Brexit with German chancellor Angela Merkel.

The EU chief went on: "There are two alternatives to a deal at this juncture: extension or no deal".

Mr Sassoli later told the BBC's Newsnight programme: "Angela Merkel's opinions must be taken seriously".

"Because we understand that going out without an agreement leads to having a real problem, if not a real catastrophe".

"To marginalise the Brexit Party, we will have to fight the election on the basis of "No more delays, get Brexit done immediately", the source is quoted as saying.

After Downing Street offered an extremely negative reaction to a phone call between Johnson and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Tusk quickly retorted that the EU-U.K. talks weren't about apportioning blame if the divorce turns out to be a chaotic and costly no-deal exit. "Supporting delay will be seen by this Government as hostile interference in domestic politics, and over half of the public will agree with us".

This, the source said, marked a shift in Germany's approach and made a negotiated deal "essentially impossible".

"We won't engage in further talks, we obviously won't given any undertakings about co-operative behaviour, everything to do with "duty of honest cooperation" will be in the toilet", the source said.
