Brexit deal is not dead, insists Theresa May

Theresa May and Jean Claude Juncker

FURY Theresa May and Jean Claude Juncker had an angry exchange in Brussels

'There will be no legally binding obligations imposed on the withdrawal treaty'.

A senior member of Prime Minister Theresa May's government called on Saturday for British MPs from all parties to "forge a consensus" on Brexit to avoid a potentially damaging "no deal" withdrawal from the European Union in March. "We have the highest respect for the British Prime Minister, because she has to deliver a very hard job".

The Prime Minister said further talks would take place in the coming days on measures she hopes will persuade MPs to back the agreement in Parliament. It was followed by an early general election where she could only muster a slim lead for the Tories.

If anything, the EU's language appears to be hardening, with especially sharp rhetoric coming from France and Belgium.

THERESA MAY has described how she had a "robust" discussion with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker after video footage of the two locked in a heated conversation emerged today.

Further acrimony between MPs and the European Commission is likely next week when Mr Juncker publishes Europe preparations for the possibility of the United Kingdom leaving without a deal in place.

"Now the MPs in London should be responsible and know if they want to have the best possible deal or to go in the direction where they don't know what will come out" he said. They remain unrepentant after their failed bid to topple her.

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

May's deal, which was negotiated after nearly two years of ill-tempered haggling between British and European Union negotiators, tries to square the circle between Britons who want to remain in the European Union, or closely tied to it, and Brexiters.

The Taoiseach added: "An open border between Northern Ireland and Ireland can't be a back door to the single market".

In Brussels, EU leaders refused to renegotiate the Brexit deal and several said the problem of its ratification could be resolved only by MPs.

And gesturing to Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, he joked: "It will happen to Sebastian in a short period of time". Parliament was supposed to vote on the deal this week, but May postponed it after it became clear that lawmakers would decisively reject it. Anger at the postponement triggered a no-confidence vote in May's own Conservative Party.

Mrs May insisted she had been "crystal clear" about the UK's need for firmer assurances that the backstop can not become permanent. In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph newspaper, Hunt indicated that he would be happy for Britain to leave without a deal. Even ministers who backed May are indicating she's not in full control.

Mr Juncker admitted the pair exchanged firm words saying, "We were not dancing", but moved to hose down the supposed conflict, implying he and Mrs May had kissed and made up.
