Deal seen with Labour to end Brexit deadlock

Deal seen with Labour to end Brexit deadlock

However, on Friday, Sir Keir said that government ministers were not "countenancing any change" to the "actual wording" of the declaration, adding: "We do need change if we're going to compromise".

But three days of talks ended with no agreement and the left-of-center Labour accusing May's Conservative government of not offering real change.

"Our approach to these discussions with Labour is that we have no red lines, we will go into these talks with an open mind and discuss everything with them in a constructive fashion".

The UK is due to leave the European Union on 12 April and, as yet, no withdrawal deal has been approved by the House of Commons and it is unclear whether the European Union would allow another extension of the deadline and how long it would be.

Education Minister Nadim Zahawi told the BBC that taking part in those elections would be a "suicide note" for the Conservative Party.

"A no-deal outcome is bad for the UK".

Prime Minister Theresa May has requested from the European Union a further extension of the Brexit deadline to June 30 because Parliament can not agree on how Britain should leave.

British Prime Minister Theresa May acknowledged that the government's strategies to get her Brexit deal approved in Parliament failed, saying on April 6 there's little prospect lawmakers will back the thrice-rejected divorce agreement "in the near future".

Mrs May says that if the Commons agrees a deal in time, the United Kingdom should be able to leave before European parliamentary elections are held on 23 May.

Britain is due to leave the European Union on April 12 unless May can secure another delay from the European Union, which already agreed to postpone the Brexit day originally set for March 29.

"We are expecting to exchange some more text with the Labour Party today, so this is an ongoing process", he told reporters.

Mrs May has already obtained one extension to the Article 50 withdrawal process, postponing the date of Brexit from March 29 to April 12.

He said to BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "I think it's important that parliament acts quickly now to decide what it is in favour of".

"None of us want no deal next week but we also want to avoid rolling extensions because that just adds to the uncertainty so perhaps a longer extension might make more sense", Varadkar told Irish national broadcaster RTE.

May is trying to win over the main opposition party after her negotiated Brexit deal was voted down by parliament on three occasions.

This would require the United Kingdom to stand in EU Parliamentary elections, due to begin on 23rd of May - even though Mrs May had previously rejected calls for Brexit to be delayed so long it would have to contest the elections, stating: "I think people would ask what on earth we were doing if, having voted almost three years ago to leave the European Union, they were then asked to elect Members to the European Parliament".
