No Brexit breakthrough yet between PM May and opposition, Labour says

The price of Corbyn’s agreement it seems is that the UK stays in the customs union or some close variant The price of Corbyn’s agreement it seems is that the UK stays in the customs union or some close variant

Leading Brexit supporter Boris Johnson, the favorite to take over once May leaves, said the prime minister's talks with veteran leftist Corbyn were "so disheartening that you can scarcely believe it".

Rees-Mogg warned that the decision to meet with the hard-left opposition leader "risks giving a degree of credibility" to Jeremy Corbyn and of "undermining the general thrust of the Conservative argument that he is a Marxist who would be unsafe to this nation's interests".

Mrs May will meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin and French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris on Tuesday.

She said May wanted Britain to have an independent trading policy - something hard to reconcile with Labour's demand for membership of a customs union - and that both sides would need to compromise. If none is granted, the United Kingdom could be subjected to a no-deal Brexit as early as Friday.

Mr Rees-Mogg, chairman of the pro-Brexit European Research Group (ERG), told Sky News that Mrs May would be "held to account" for her decisions to delay Brexit as well as for her decision to invite Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn for talks over a possible compromise Brexit deal.

Labour is pushing for a much closer post-Brexit alliance with the EU, including participation in a customs union.

Time is running out for the PM to reach a Brexit compromise with Labour ahead of a summit with European leaders on Wednesday.

May's spokeswoman said she hoped further formal talks could take place later on Monday, adding: "The PM wants us to be able to agree with the opposition as soon as possible".

I don't think that they change the dynamic on the ground for Maduro or lessen his susceptibility at all", the official said.

Without an extension, the United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union at 2200 GMT on Friday, without a deal to cushion the economic shock.

May heads to Berlin and Paris on Tuesday to meet Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Emmanuel Macron and will be phoning other leaders before setting out the case for another delay at Wednesday's European Union summit in Brussels.

She said: "I can't pretend that things have gone well and that we can carry on as we are". I think that the challenge of Brexit to our political system is a profound one.

Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson used his Daily Telegraph column to warn that Tory MPs would not allow Mrs May to "surrender" to Mr Corbyn.

The Labour MP resisted calling for it to take place until it is all finished, but questioned whether or not Britain's consistution is still fit for goal because it did not appear to be holding the prime minister to account.

The UK remains bitterly divided around Brexit.

Shadow Business Secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey has said that "we are currently waiting for the Government to come back to us now to state whether they are prepared to move on any of their red lines".

If passed, May will have to bring a motion to parliament on Tuesday, pledging to request an extension in Brussels the following day and outlining the length of the plan for delay.
