'I have always said that these negotiations would be tough - and they were always bound to be toughest in the final straight.

"We are and we remain British citizens. We can't solve the problems that are arising on the island (Britain) due to Brexit", he said on Twitter.

He also hit back at May's claim that the European Union hadn't explained how her plans on trade threaten the future of the single market.

"If we're going to work significantly in the direction of the achievement of an answer, we have to keep away from inflation state of affairs and its deterioration, referring to the general public by way of social media", stated hunt. The second option offered by Brussels is a basic free trade agreement for Great Britain with checks at the border.

Mr Coveney also expressed concern the so-called backstop "has turned into a green versus orange issue", adding it is important to "de-dramatise" the situation and turn attention to the practicalities of trade and movement of goods and people.

'Parliament has already - unanimously - rejected this idea.

The pound slumped by nearly two cents against the dollar after the address, which Mrs May used to repeat her belief that "no-deal is better than a bad deal".

Many who took part in the meetings were surprised by a near unanimous verdict in Britain that the prime minister had taken an orchestrated drubbing in the city of Mozart and the "Sound of Music"; but if European Union leaders did sound a touch sharp and careful to sound in tune with each other, that reflected a genuine reaction to comments and tactics from May and her ministers this week.

The Conservative Party conference is looming, and Irish sources said they believe some of her rhetoric was created to keep frustrated Brexiteers at bay.

May cited Britons' vote in 2016 to leave the EU. French President Emmanuel Macron calling Brexit campaigners liars and a jokey social media posting by Tusk about May not being allowed to "cherry pick" European Union market access were "not helpful", one European Union official said. She added that it was now the EU's turn to make a counter-proposal.

"Insulting her on social media, getting to these stand-offs where you are calling people liars and so on is not the way we are going to get a solution to this hard situation".

She ruled out a Norway-style relationship as it would keep the United Kingdom as a rule-taker from Brussels, and quashed talk of a basic trade deal as it would leave Northern Ireland "permanently separated economically from the rest of the United Kingdom by a border down the Irish Sea".

Arlene Foster, the head of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party which supports May's government, welcomed May's tough stance against "disrespectful, intransigent and disgraceful" behaviour by the EU.

'We can not accept anything that threatens the integrity of our union, just as they can not accept anything that threatens the integrity of theirs.

"We can not accept anything that does not respect the result of the referendum, just as they can not accept anything that is not in the interest of their citizens". "The UK expects the same, a good relationship at the end of this process depends on it".

She said it was "not acceptable" to simply reject the UK's suggestions without a detailed explanation, adding that until they provide an alternative, progress can not be made. "Until we do, we can not make progress", she said.

'In particular, I want to clarify our approach to two issues.

In Paris, Minister for European Affairs Nathalie Loiseau said that while France believed a good Brexit deal was possible, it must also prepare for a "no deal" outcome.
