British PM Theresa May demands respect from European Union in Brexit negotiations

NEIN NEIN NEIN: May crisis after Salzburg snub

The BBC said: "Embarrassing rebuff for PM in Salzburg".

But he defended the EU's approach and said it was in fact Mrs May who had been "tough" and "uncompromising".

Few diplomats expected any breakthrough from the Salzburg summit as the European Union has repeatedly made clear that May must rework the Chequers proposals.

The UK is due to leave the European Union on 29 March 2019 - but the two sides are trying to reach a deal by November so it can be ratified in time.

Lord Adonis, a prominent figure in the remain campaign and a former Labour minister said at an event at the University of Kent last night that it was not impossible to trigger and win a second referendum to stay.

"Humiliation for May", said The Times on its front page.

'They left the day after so as not to have to deal with it.' He did not specify who he was referring to but Ukip leader Nigel Farage quit days after the Brexit referendum.

The Sun describes it as Mrs May's "Brexit fightback" while the i draws a comparison to Margaret Thatcher with a headline that reads: "May tells European Union: I'm not for turning".

Davis also attacked May's Brexit plan - known as the Chequers agreement - describing it as a "non-starter" that breaches previously set-out red-lines on sovereignty. "I think we will still get a deal ... notwithstanding the situation we've seen yesterday". "We are sure that the rationality will prevail".

British PM Theresa May demands respect from European Union in Brexit negotiations

About 50 members of the European Research Group (ERG) a pro-Brexit lobby which is strongly against Theresa May's plans for trading arrangements with the EU met last week and discussed openly how to oust her from office.

Tusk said May has just four weeks to amend her plan - or perhaps face the dreaded prospect of leaving Europe with no deal - a so-called doomsday scenario.

"It's not acceptable to simply reject the other side's proposals without a detailed explanation and counterproposals", May said in a televised statement.

The pound fell as much as 1.6% against the dollar, the most on a closing basis since June past year.

Some Brexiteer MPs praised her for her comments.

Tory hardliner Jacob Rees-Mogg welcomed the PM's "strong and forthright" tone, but said it was time for her to ditch Chequers and go for a Canada-style free trade agreement with the EU. When the Conservatives meet for their annual conference on September 30, they plan to push May to ditch the Chequers plan or face a challenge to her leadership.

"It is something I will never agree to", she said, "and it is something no British prime minister will ever agree to".

She has to protect her chair in 10 Downing Street even as she has to deliver on one of the most momentous decisions any British government is being forced to make in recent memory. This would keep Northern Ireland under EU economic oversight if London and Brussels can not agree a trade pact to keep UK-EU borders open after a transition period ends in 2020 - an idea that May and a small party in the province that props up her minority government oppose.

He said: 'Ultimately the problems that are being created by Britain and the British Government are being created as a outcome of Brexit and nobody in Europe or Ireland is to blame for that'.
