EU's Tusk says no more Brexit negotiations

EU's Tusk says no more Brexit negotiations

"We sypmathyse with Mrs May", Juncker told a news conference.

According to lipreaders, Mrs May said to Mr Juncker: 'You called me nebulous.

Mr Juncker, who had one hand on Mrs May's arm, looked to be trying to calm her by denying making the jibe.

"And what came out of that was his clarity that actually he'd been talking - when he used that particular phrase - he'd been talking about a general level of debate".

May is facing an uphill battle to persuade MPs that the Northern Ireland backstop contained in the withdrawal agreement would not trap the United Kingdom in a permanent customs union.

But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: "The last 24 hours have confirmed that Theresa May's Brexit deal is dead in the water".

Tusk said he would not negotiate with May over a legal guarantee, but that he would be available to her over the Christmas period.

He added: "I was not addressing her, and in the course of the morning after having checked what I said yesterday night, she was kissing me".

He added: 'We don't want the United Kingdom to think there can be any form of renegotiation, that is crystal clear.

At a Leave Means Leave rally in London on Friday, Mr Farage told the BBC it was "outrageous" another referendum could happen, but added: "I can see where we're going".

The Prime Minister said Britain could be forced to leave the European Union without a deal if they did not give ground.

She was speaking in Brussels following a meeting with leaders of the EU27 nations seeking assistance to get her Withdrawal Agreement through Westminster.

A startled Mr Juncker appeared to say: "I didn't, I didn't".

Britain's exit from the European Union was heading for an impasse, one senior minister said on Saturday, after a week in which Prime Minister Theresa May failed to win EU assurances on her deal and pulled a vote because United Kingdom lawmakers would defeat it.

"I did not refer to her but to the overall state of the debate in Britain".
