Unionist fury as May deserts them for possible deal with Labour Party

  • Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May attends a Serious Youth Violence Summit in Downing Street London Monday

"The meeting was useful but inconclusive". He himself has said such a vote should be restricted to specific circumstances.

Labour is formally committed to enacting voters' decision to leave the European Union, but numerous party's lawmakers want a new referendum that could keep Britain in the bloc. "There was no agreement reached on that".

MPs backed a plan to take over the Commons yet again on Wednesday to make time to debate new legislation which would rule out no-deal Brexit and force the Prime Minister to seek a further extension.

The premier said on Tuesday she would seek another "short" Brexit extension at an European Union leaders' summit in Brussels on April 10.

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, warned that the other 27 EU nations were prepared for a "no deal" situation, and "it becomes day after day more likely".

He said the bloc was ready to upgrade a proposed blueprint for new EU-UK relations after Brexit from the one already negotiated by May.

The British prime minister will hold five hours of crisis talks with her cabinet Tuesday, with the pro- and anti-Brexit factions in her top team set to clash over the best way forward.

The discussions between the leaders, who are trying to find agreement on a way forward, were described as "constructive", but Mr Corbyn added that they were "inconclusive".

Fellow junior minister Chris Heaton-Harris also said he was quitting his Brexit department post because he thought Britain should have left on the original deadline date of March 29.

In a televised address after a seven-hour cabinet meeting on Tuesday, May said that she would request a further delay to the Article 50 process from European Union leaders in a bid to strike a cross-party compromise.

May turned to Labour after a hard core of Brexit supporters among her own Conservatives repeatedly rejected her divorce deal, saying it would leave Britain a "vassal state". However, despite two days of "indicative" votes on eight alternative Brexit plans by MPs, none has been able to secure a majority, although proposals for the United Kingdom to stay in a permanent customs union or hold a second referendum came within a handful of votes.

In his letter, Mr Adams said: "Legitimising and turning to Jeremy Corbyn to assist you at this crucial stage, rather than being bold, is a grave error".

A second referendum: Corbyn took a long time to come around to the prospect of a second vote, but ultimately supported a plan from one of his backbenchers for a confirmatory vote on any deal May gets through Parliament.

Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay said the government would accept a soft Brexit if parliament voted for it.
