France's President Emmanuel Macron has said that a clean, no deal, is still possible, saying, "If the United Kingdom isn't capable, nearly three years after the referendum, of putting forward a solution that gets a majority, it will have decided itself, de facto, to leave without a deal".

"We must really take a no-deal into account", Prime Minister Mark Rutte said in Luxembourg after a Benelux summit.

He said: "It's regrettable that what we have been saying for several months now is coming to pass, but that is the remorseless logic of not backing the Prime Minister's deal".

Kurz and other European Union leaders have repeatedly said that any extension should be for a clearly defined reason and not just in order to buy time.

Mr Corbyn said he raised a number of issues with Mrs May, including future customs arrangements, trade agreements and the option of giving the public the final say over the deal in another referendum. He said it was really important now that we see "real leadership" from across the Westminster parliament.

It follows the rejection of her Withdrawal Agreement three times in the Commons and failure of MPs to back any of the alternative proposals considered so far.

Juncker said on Wednesday he is on the side of patience.

"The country is demanding that politicians work together and we have got to bury our worries about economic vandalism and the freakish, extremist views that he and those around him have to find a solution to this problem".

"If we move quickly this week and get this deal over the line we may be able to avoid European elections", Hinds told BBC radio on Tuesday.

Eurosceptic Tories were furious at the developments, with Jacob Rees-Mogg describing the offer to Mr Corbyn as "deeply unsatisfactory" and accusing Mrs May of planning to collaborate with "a known Marxist", while former foreign secretary Boris Johnson said he was disappointed.

The DUP in a statement said May's "lamentable handling" of the negotiations with the European Union had been a complete failure and it "to be seen if sub-contracting out the future of Brexit to Jeremy Corbyn, someone whom the Conservatives have demonised for four years, will end happily".

Fellow Conservative Party member, 24-year-old Busta Miller, said it was the second time he had cut up his card in three weeks. Ex-Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith said he was "absolutely appalled" by May's talks with Corbyn.

She noted calls in her own party for Britain simply to end its 46-year-old membership of the bloc without any agreement with the European Union, but she said that "leaving with a deal is the best solution".

Arriving at the conclusion that London needs another extension of Article 50, May said it would be "as short as possible" and would end when the withdrawal package is passed in the House of Commons.
