UK PM Theresa May travels to Europe with Brexit extension plea

Billy Connolly says he supports independence to keep Scotland in EU

After Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn urged the Prime Minister to move on her negotiating red lines, Mr Gauke acknowledged there would need to be flexibility on both sides. In reality, granting such an extension would increase the risk of a rolling series of short extensions and emergency summits, creating new cliff-edge dates.

Earlier in the day, Mrs May met Germany's Angela Merkel at her riverside Chancellery, a short walk from the Brandenburg Gate, and departed with a warm exchange of kisses.

The EU Council President - who published his letter with a tweet stating "there are times when you need to give time time" - wrote: "We should treat the United Kingdom with the highest respect, as we want to remain friends and close partners, and as we will still need to agree on our future relations".

Theresa May will head off around Europe tomorrow to try to get a further Brexit extension.

Mr Tusk said the European Union would need to agree on a number of conditions to be attached to any proposed extension, including that there would be no re-opening of negotiations on the withdrawal agreement.

He said they would need assurances of "sincere co-operation" from London before granting an extension.

Hogan said that "despite the madness of Brexit, I still believe that common sense might prevail".

UK Government discussions with opposition Labour, so far fruitless, are also set to continue.

May's Conservative government and the main opposition Labour Party have been trying to find a compromise Brexit deal before European Union leaders decide Wednesday whether to grant a second extension to the U.K.'s departure.

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, also said the length of any delay will depend on the rationale May presents in Brussels on Wednesday.

Currently, UK parliament is in a deadlock over passing a Brexit withdrawal agreement.

The EU has continually said it will not re-open the withdrawal agreement for negotiations, but Leader of the Commons Andrea Leadsom has renewed her plea for it to look at it again.

Though, little progress has been made from the cross-party talks.

Chancellor Philip Hammond and environment secretary Michael Gove led the talks for the government, with their opposite numbers John McDonnell and Sue Hayman among the Labour delegation.

On Tuesday afternoon, MPs also approved a government motion for Mrs May to ask the European Union to delay Brexit until June 30, required after a bill from Labour's Yvette Cooper became law.

Mr Gauke played down a report that Mrs May was considering offering MPs a vote on whether to hold a confirmatory referendum on any Brexit deal that was agreed.
