All 27 European Union leaders believe current Brexit trade plan "will not work"

"And at various stages of these negotiations, tactics would be used as part of those negotiations".

Pro-EU and pro-Brexit supporters reacted to the Maltese and Czech leaders' comments.

He said Brexit "demonstrated that those who explain that one can get by easily without Europe - that it will all go well, that it is easy and brings in a lot of money - are liars".

"It's even more true since they left the day after so as not to have to deal with it", he added, referring to top Brexit proponents.

May had already been forewarned of what they would say a few minutes earlier in a private meeting with Tusk, which she conceded was "frank".

But Tusk told a press conference that the UK's proposal would not be accepted.

"It was a good and courageous step by the prime minister", Macron told reporters.

Neither side wants a "hard border" to spring up between Northern Ireland, a British-ruled province, and the Irish Republic when London splits from the EU single market and customs union, as this would hurt trade and might undermine the Good Friday peace agreement.

"It was clear today that we need substantial progress by October and that we then aim to finalize everything in November", said German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

An official EU summit set for October 18-19 was previously considered the "last chance" for a formal Brexit deal, as any plan must be approved by the United Kingdom parliament, the European Parliament, and the individual legislatures of all 27 remaining EU member states. However, to avoid being defeated on the crucial bill, Theresa May promised Grieve's group that she would give Parliament "a meaningful say" on the final deal.

Hunt on for driver who mowed down emus
The man continues to laugh as bird after bird is run over by his auto as they continue to sprint down the road, the video shows. An Australian-wide hunt is now on for a man who appears to have used his ute to deliberately run down at least 10 emus.

The so-called Chequers plan would be unacceptable to European Union leaders, Tusk tells reporters.

The EU Commission president was jovial as he sought to reassure over a possible no-deal Brexit. Given that she is more than aware of the pressure she's under to change policy, there has to be some reason for not buckling. "This does make things more hard".

The Brexit action plan for EU leaders coming to Salzburg - briefed over and again in advance of the summit in off-the-record conversations with European diplomats - had been to spout words of support for Theresa May to help her secure an EU/UK Brexit divorce deal not just with Brussels, but with political opponents back home.

Ahead of a meeting in Brussels on Wednesday to outline its case, the organisation claimed no deal and the resulting tariffs on light vehicles alone "would add £5bn to the collective EU-UK auto trade bill".

"I think Chequers now has no supporters at all".

"With just weeks to go until a deal must be struck, the Prime Minister can not keep ignoring this reality".

But DUP Brexit spokesperson Sammy Wilson urged the prime minister to firmly reject Mr Barnier's proposal, branding it as "nothing more than a pig in a poke".

Former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith told the Guardian: "I didn't agree with Theresa May's Chequers deal but I think the European Union has behaved really badly today - arrogant, strutting, boastful, bossy". I would like to finalise them still this autumn.

The backstop 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. "She needs to urgently drop her reckless red lines and put forward a credible plan for Brexit".
