PM May says Britain will hold nerve in Brexit talks: Sunday Express

No Deal Brexit? May Promises To Protect EU Nationals In UK

In other news, the Daily Mirror leads with the story of an acid attack victim who says she was talked out of suicide by Strictly star Katie Piper. A good relationship depends on it.

He insisted it was time for people in the European Union "to step back from the abyss" of a no-deal Brexit, to "sit down and to talk to us about how we can make these sensible, concrete proposals actually work".

May's combative remarks were calibrated to appease euroskeptic Conservatives ahead of what's likely to be a bruising annual party conference at the end of the month.

In an effort to prevent customs checks, the Chequers plan proposed keeping the whole of the United Kingdom in Europe's single market for food and goods - but EU leaders roundly rejected this as a threat to the "European project". French President Emmanuel Macron called pro-Brexit U.K. politicians "liars" who had misled the country about the costs of leaving the 28-nation bloc.

May's plan was rebuffed in Salzburg on Thursday and Tusk's post only added to what several British newspapers called her "humiliation". Tusk said Thursday that an European Union summit on October 18 and 19 would be the moment of truth, when an agreement on divorce terms and the outlines of future trade would be sealed, or would fail.

Mrs Sturgeon said a no deal or "no detail" Brexit was not acceptable following the Prime Minister's update.

British opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Saturday his party would challenge May on any Brexit deal.

The Prime Minister warned the European Union that she would continue preparations for a "no-deal" Brexit.

"After intensive consultations with member states, we decided that for the good of the negotiations, and out of respect for the efforts of PM May, we will treat the Chequers plan as a step in the right direction".

"A piece of cake, perhaps?"

Mr Tusk's bombshell Thursday statement came while speaking at the end of an European Union summit in Salzburg where leaders of the 27 remaining member states dscussed Brexit.

He said the response of the EU27 leaders was to "reiterate" our trust in chief negotiator Michel Barnier and to "reiterate our position on the integrity of the single market and the Irish backstop".

China cancels trade talks with United States as new tariffs loom
The latest batch of Chinese imports will face 10 percent tariffs through the end of the year, and then the rate will jump to 25 percent.

Speaking on the Marian Finucane programme, Mr Coveney said many people in Northern Ireland are "fearful".

We both agree that the withdrawal agreement needs to include a backstop so there still won't be a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland, but the EU is hoping to achieve this by effectively keeping NI in the customs union. "So we are at an impasse", she said.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said a deal with Britain was still "far away", an EU official said.

May says told those anxious about their future that "you are our friends, our neighbors, our colleagues". If you put us in a hard corner we will stand our ground.

Some drama is often seen as a useful part of reaching a diplomatic deal that is unlikely to be popular with voters, but there was also some concern in Brussels that it will be useful to keep tempers in check as both sides try to avoid a stalemate.

The address was commended by senior Conservatives and Brexiteer MPs, although the latter have continued to push for her strategy to be dumped in favour of a simpler Canada-style free trade deal.

Theresa May has told warring Tories the time has come for the party to "hold our nerve" and unite in the national interest as the Brexit negotiations enter their final stages.

She said that the 400 customs officers that will be hired in preparation for Brexit will not be stationed on a north-south border.

Despite the somber mood music, May hinted there could be a way forward.

"As I have already said, this is unacceptable".

"We need serious engagement on resolving the two big problems in the negotiations and we stand ready".
