Humiliation for May as EU rejects Brexit plan

UK's May seeks more compromise from EU ahead of meeting

She repeated that she would bring forward alternative proposals to the backstop, which would come into effect until a new trade deal is struck.

Simon Usherwood, politics professor at the University of Surrey, said the EU's previous strategy of giving May some breathing room at summits had "collapsed". "A good relationship at the end of this process depends on it".

Sterling extended its losses as May spoke, falling to as low as $1.3053, and was down around 1.5 percent on the day, putting it on course for its biggest one-day drop this year, over growing fears Britain could leave the European Union without any deal.

But, she added, "that backstop can not divide the United Kingdom into two customs territories, and we will be bringing forward our own proposals shortly".

May has sought to keep some part of trade between the United Kingdom and the European Union in the bloc's single market but not others.

But the response of Tusk left May on the defensive, giving her an hour to prepare for a press conference in which she appeared visibly nervous, and forced to repeat that her proposals could still form the basis of negotiations at the EU's October summit and a likely emergency summit in November.

Macron called May's proposals "not acceptable in their current state".

"We are striving to make a compromise possible". Asked about Orban's comments, Rutte said: "There is no division; the unity of the 27 is holding and I'm confident we will maintain it".

There is still no agreement on some issues, including how to avoid new checks on the Northern Ireland-Republic of Ireland border. Her minority government is now propped up by 10 Democratic Unionist Party lawmakers from Northern Ireland. However, she refused to deny the new plans would involve regulatory checks in the same way.

True Detective director to make next Bond movie
Fukunaga's appointment appears to have been a well-kept secret, with rumours surrounding directors Yann Demange and S.J. The Bond 25 director search has taken yet another unexpected turn.

She flatly rejected a European Commission backstop proposal for Northern Ireland to remain within the EU customs area after Brexit, arguing that this would draw a border down the Irish Sea. Your job now is to get behind and let her deliver for the country. "The Irish question remains our priority too and for this we need only goodwill - which we feel, the atmosphere was better than two or three weeks ago - but the Irish question needs something more than good intentions", Tusk said.

"Just think of all the people everyday who cross the border to work or study, think of all the businesses who trade across the border, so that's what we're trying to engineer in many ways, is a new relationship that at least when it comes to those matters, is very much like the one we have now, but that's hard to do".

"We've already compromised hugely with the Chequers proposals", Raab told BBC TV.

Rather than coming out of Salzburg more divided, as Prime Minister Viktor Orban of Hungary suggested was happening, "Europe collectively has come stronger, and even tougher today than a day or so ago", Rahman said.

Newspapers led their front pages with a Reuters picture showing May, dressed in a red jacket, standing apparently aloof and alone from a mass of suited male European Union leaders.

Prominent Conservative Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg, said Mr Tusk's remarks signalled the end for the Chequers proposals while Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer said Mrs May had to "urgently drop her reckless red lines and put forward a credible plan for Brexit".

"There's a lot of hard work to be done, I believe there is a willingness to do a deal", May said.

Their Brexit aim for this summit was to go as far as they could with words and gestures to throw Theresa May a lifeline. "The Tories have spent more time arguing among themselves than negotiating with the European Union". "Away from the discussion in the media, behind closed doors, I have the impression that both sides are aware that a solution can only be found if both sides make a move towards one another".

There has also been ongoing unrest and resignations over the issue within her own party and talk of a second referendum to provide a clearer mandate. "To deny its legitimacy or frustrate its result threatens public trust in our democracy".
