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

Ruth Davidson has challenged those in the Tory party who want to oust Theresa May from Number 10 to "put their sharp elbows away" and back her as she battles to deliver an Brexit deal for the UK.

And key figures including Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron also said significant progress was needed by the European Council summit on October 18 if agreement on the UK's withdrawal deal was to be reached.

'As I have already said, that is unacceptable. Britain wants to controls its own immigration and make its own independent trade deals.

Mrs May concluded her statement by saying: "The EU should be clear, I will not overturn the result of the referendum, nor will I break up my country".

Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab accused the European Union of rejecting Britain's proposals without offering "credible alternatives" and said the bloc had "yanked up the handbrake" on negotiations.

Mrs May said that Brussels's "backstop" proposal to keep Northern Ireland in the European Union customs area unless a better solution can be found was "unacceptable" to Britain because it would create a customs border down the Irish Sea. "A good relationship at the end of this process depends on it", she added.

The UK and European Union are trying to reach a deal by mid-November and want to avoid a hard border - physical infrastructure like cameras or guard posts - between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic but can not agree on how.

Market expectations are for approximately two increases to US interest rates next year and Russell Investments said that medium-term recession risks in the USA economy are now elevated, pointing to a number of indicators such as a tightening labour market.

Tusk said May has just four weeks to amend her plan - or perhaps face the dreaded prospect of leaving Europe with no deal - a so-called doomsday scenario.

On the issue of Northern Ireland and the border, May said: "Creating any form of customs border between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK would not respect that Northern Ireland is an integral part of the United Kingdom, in line with the principle of consent, as set out clearly in the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement".

"There are positive elements in the Chequers proposal, but the suggested framework for economic cooperation will not work, not least because it risks undermining the single market", Tusk said. We will never agree to it.

"That's why it's more important than ever that we use the next six months wisely to step up no deal preparations and make sure we are ready on day one for every eventuality". "We've engaged and we want to hear more about what the real critique of it is and we've got no other credible alternatives on the table", Raab told the BBC. To deny its legitimacy, or frustrate its result, threatens public trust our democracy.
