Brexit: EU must compromise or no deal, says minister

European leaders pour scorn on British PM's Brexit plan

Mr Tusk said the next summit on October 18 would be Brexit's "moment of truth".

Ms Davidson, speaking at an event in Edinburgh organised by The Times Scotland, said she had always "expected people to negotiate hard" as Britain prepares to leave the European Union.

"I do not accept that".

The prime minister also opted to flat out reject the EU's updated proposals on how to deal with the thorny issue of the Irish border, which also didn't go down well with leaders around the table.

Facing criticism on all sides for her Chequers Brexit plan, a rapprochement with other European Union leaders would have been a coup ahead of the Conservative Party conference.

Amid reports that she had taken a tough line on the negotiations, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said Thursday that May had been "interesting" and "polite".

THERESA MAY'S Brexit strategy was thrown back in her face yesterday as European Union leaders boasted they are better prepared for a no deal than she is.

EC President Donald Tusk says the UK PM's plans risk undermining the EU's single market. "And actually if they stick with that position, there will be no deal", Grayling said.

'Everyone shared the view that, while there are positive elements in the Chequers proposal, the suggested framework for economic co-operation will not work'.

But Mr Raab insisted it was "the most credible plan" for Brexit, challenging critics by saying it was "a bit late in the day" for alternative proposals.

"We want to ensure predictability for our people and businesses so we want to somehow ease, mitigate the sometimes very tense and hard negotiations for Britain's exit from the European Union because we really want to break the impasse" between them, Morawiecki added.

And he issued a harsh assessment of Brexiteers who he said "predicted easy solutions".
"Those people are liars", Mr Macron said.

"The Chequers plan can not be take it or leave it", Macron said.

"It was clear today that we need substantial progress by October and that we then aim to finalize everything in November", said German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The prime minister's economic plans, which would end free movement and keep frictionless trade in goods but not services, were given equally short shrift.

In a press conference on Thursday after meeting with the EU27 leaders, Tusk was clear that May's plan to keep the United Kingdom tied to Brussels' rules on goods but not services was a non-starter as it threatens the integritiy of the Single Market. "And I'm still confident that we will reach agreement", he said. 'The people made their choice and it is our duty to deliver on the result, ' she said.

"Those who explain that we can easily live without Europe, that everything is going to be alright, and that it's going to bring a lot of money home are liars", Macron said.

The political turmoil has sparked growing calls in Britain for a re-run of the 2016 Brexit vote - calls echoed by both the Maltese and Czech leaders in Salzburg.
