Theresa May to meet Merkel and Macron in push for Brexit extension

The Commons Leader made the call after a senior German official said the United Kingdom must take "substantial steps" to break the Brexit stand-off. While the European Union has already rejected a demand from May for a postponement until June 30, the bloc is not willing to go for the most damaging, abrupt split on Friday.

There were no cross-party talks with Labour - they resume between officials tonight.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday to argue for a Brexit delay while her ministers hold crisis talks with the opposition to try to break the deadlock in London.

MPs and peers backed the bill on Monday night meaning there is now a legal requirement on Theresa May to seek an extension to Article 50 to prevent a no-deal Brexit. The requirement comes after senior British Brexiteers threatened to be as "difficult as possible" towards Europe if Britain was forced to stay inside the Union against its own will. Suggestions by Jacob Rees-Mogg and Nigel Farage included vetoing the EU budget, obstructing the EU army, and causing trouble in the European Parliament.

A number of Cabinet ministers attended Downing Street for a scheduled meeting of the European Union subcommittee yesterday.

The PM also updated Merkel on the ongoing discussions with the opposition Labour party.

Another condition for an extension would require the United Kingdom not to disrupt the EU's decision-making, which could see it sidelined from budget decisions in Brussels, BuzzFeed reported.

European leaders will demand the United Kingdom abide by principles of "sincere co-operation" and not disrupt the functioning of EU institutions in return for a long extension of its Brexit negotiations, according to draft council conclusions seen by the Financial Times.

The latest round of talks will include Mrs May's de facto deputy, Cabinet Office minister David Lidington, and Chancellor Philip Hammond from the Government side, with shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer and shadow chancellor John McDonnell from Labour. Discussions with Jeremy Corbyn do not appear to be making any progress with minister Dr Liam Fox warning Mrs May that the customs union with the EU Labour is demanding would be the "worst of both worlds" and EU leaders are growing exhausted of repeated extension requests.

Seibert would not further comment on the German government's position regarding May's Friday proposal to delay Brexit until June 30 to avoid crashing out without a deal at the end of this week.

Several EU diplomats said the 12-month extension proposed by European Council president Donald Tusk, who will chair the summit on Wednesday, was unlikely to fly and several member states had agreed with France it would be too long.
