Brexit cannot define us, says PM May's deputy as ratings dip

Farage told supporters that the UK's two-party system cannot cope with Brexit

A customs union arrangement with a British say on EU trade deals is a central plank of Labour's plan for Brexit.

Mrs May's deputy David Lidington said talks were progressing with Labour on a possible soft Brexit deal that could still avert the need for the elections.

Lidington said: "These are hard, delicate negotiations where we are testing out other people's ideas". "Labour has a different approach", he told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show.

They would discuss environmental standards and workers' rights after Brexit as well as the future security relationship with the EU.

Sources suggested a the chancellor, Philip Hammond, could meet the shadow chancellor, John McDonnell.

Annunziata Rees-Mogg, who has twice stood for the Conservatives in previous general elections, was unveiled as a candidate during the party's launch in Coventry on Friday. He then said they would "take stock" on the process once parliament resumes after its Easter break.

He said there was "no date ringed in the calendar" for the talks to end but if agreement could not be reached on some form of Brexit deal, then he hoped the two sides would be able to agree a binding mechanism for parliament to agree a way forward.

"I know which one I'd rather have representing us now".

Craig has said that a Democratic operative - and not Manafort - brought him into the project. Craig also held prominent positions in the administration of former President Bill Clinton .

May and Corbyn will continue talks this week after the prime minister secured an extension to the Article 50 deadline on Wednesday.

May has come under fire from MPs including former leader Iain Duncan Smith following her decision to agree an extension that would result in the United Kingdom taking part in European elections next month.

"I know that the prime minister has already said she's going".

"I don't think this question can be allowed to drag out for much longer, I think the public rightly wants politicians to get on and deal with it".

In an interview on Sky News' Sophy Ridge on Sunday, Mr Duncan Smith warned the Brexit extension agreed by European Union leaders last week and accepted by Mrs May represented a "political death" for his party.

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, the pair said there was "nothing standing in their way" if MPs agreed to change the rules, though the committee's current chair, Graham Brady, said he was "less certain that it would be possible to change the rules during the current period of grace".

The threat of a boycott by activists will raise further doubts about the ability of the cash-strapped Tories to compete against Ukip and Nigel Farage's new Brexit Party.

Jacob Rees-Mogg gave LBC listeners his reaction to the news that his sister had joined Nigel Farage's Brexit Party ahead of the European Union elections next month.
