UK’s May holds ‘constructive’ Brexit talks with Labour

Theresa May Offers Talks To Jeremy Corbyn To Break Brexit Impasse

"We have had constructive exploratory discussions about how to break the Brexit deadlock", a Labour Party spokesman said.

France's new European Affairs Minister Amelie de Montchalin said that, while May and Corbyn's meeting was a positive step, it offered no guarantee of a way out of the crisis.

This week, Parliament narrowly rejected a proposal for a new referendum on whether to leave the EU.

She listed a desire to protect jobs, to leave the EU with a deal and to end free movement as some of the areas of agreement, without ruling out remaining in a customs union with the EU - a key Labour demand that she has until now dismissed out of hand.

Irish premier Leo Varadkar said he hopes Jeremy Corbyn will show leadership and come up with a compromised Brexit plan with Theresa May.

After failing repeatedly to win Parliament's backing for her Brexit blueprint, Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May dramatically changed gear Tuesday, saying she would seek to delay Brexit _ again _ and hold talks with the opposition to seek a compromise.

Junior Brexit Minister Christ Heaton-Harris said on Wednesday that he had also quit May's government.

Conservative divisions over Europe are decades old and have led to the demise of three prime ministers: David Cameron, John Major and Margaret Thatcher.

Labour is also far from united.Corbyn, who voted against joining the bloc in 1975, has said Brexit should include a customs union with the EU and protection for consumer and environmental standards and workers' rights.

Stephen Curry Credits Contact Lenses For Shooting Resurgence
That all changes now, however, as he's finally getting contact lenses to resolve a vision issue that had been dogging him for. Before Curry began wearing contact lenses, his three-point shooting numbers had started to slump. "It was just normal".

"A no deal on 12 April at midnight looks increasingly more inclined", European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said Wednesday, adding that could bring disturbance for EU citizens and businesses, but much worse economic harm for Britain.

"It now seems that you and your cabinet have decided that a deal - cooked up with a Marxist who has never once in his political life put British interests first - is better than "no- deal", Nigel Adams said as he resigned as a minister for Wales.

The move came just hours after a cross-party group of 12 MPs announced that they would try to pass a law that would force May to seek a delay to the UK's departure from the EU.

At a European Council summit on April 10, May will seek an extension to delay the departure until May 22, the day before the European Parliament elections begin.

The bill still needs approval from the House of Lords, Parliament's unelected upper chamber - likely on Thursday.

Most politicians, economists and business groups think leaving the world's largest trading bloc without an agreement would be damaging for the European Union and disastrous for the U.K. It could lead to tariffs imposed on trade between Britain and the European Union, and customs checks that could cause gridlock at ports and shortages of essential goods.

"He, nevertheless though, stood on a manifesto on Brexit to deliver Brexit, and that is also what we want to do".

"The trouble is that it is always a draw in the House of Commons", he said. Associated Press writers Danica Kirka in London and Geir Moulson in Berlin contributed.
