Theresa May sets deadline for Brexit compromise talks with Labour

Some Tory MPs and ministers however remain deeply unhappy at the prospect of a deal with a left-wing Labour Party led by Mr Corbyn.

Brexit continues to cause division over the party's plans for the European parliament elections next month.

"The Labour leader has not just abdicated his responsibility as leader of the Opposition, he has abdicated his responsibility of standing up for the rights and living standards of people across Scotland and the United Kingdom in the face of Brexit, which we know will harm our economy, costs jobs and hit people's pockets".

Labour's ruling body has resisted pressure to back a second referendum before agreeing to any Brexit deal.

The left-of-center party's governing executive met for five hours and decided that its election platform would be "fully in line" with Labour's existing policy.

Pro-EU critics and opposition parties accused Labour of supporting Brexit and abandoning its Remain-voting members. "It has been six months since the deal was agreed between the European Union and the UK".

While the decision of December's vote was binding - if the Prime Minister had lost the confidence of her MPs, it would have triggered a party leadership election - the NCC vote technically is not, although it could render her position untenable or send at least message to the party leadership of their dissatisfaction with its handling of Brexit.

Her comments came amid reports that Environment Secretary Michael Gove had warned ministers they may have to offer concessions so Jeremy Corbyn could claim victory in the talks and sell the deal to his MPs.

The issue is coming to a head because Britain looks set to participate in May 23 elections for the European Union parliament.

But asked if it was now "impossible" for Britain to leave without a deal, she said: "What I think is that Parliament will act to insist the UK Government is not willing to leave without a deal".

It was criticised by Bridget Phillipson MP, who said: "The manifesto's mealy-mouthed wording still maintains the fiction that there is a deal out there that can satisfy all the promises made three years ago, avoid real costs to jobs and living standards, or end the endless crisis around Brexit".

It is now scheduled to leave the bloc by October 31 at the latest.
