UK, EU Disagree Over How to Get Out of Brexit Stalemate

But May is so weak that she can not even sack ministers who are openly undermining her.

Meanwhile on Monday, Shanghai ended higher as investors returned from the week-long Golden Week celebrations and reacted for the first time to the Chinese central bank's decision to cut the amount of cash banks must hold in reserve as part of a push to help small businesses.

It's evident that Britain is not now prepared for a no deal scenario. The fifth round of talks is starting in Brussels on Monday.

However, he believed "concrete progress" had been made. But the United Kingdom is hoping other member states will want to be more flexible after May offered to pay €20bn to ensure no member state loses out in the two years after May 2019.

BAE Systems, the UK's largest defense firm, is reportedly set to announce the axing of 1,000 jobs.

This time-consuming process left a real risk of disaster as a transition period would also be hard to negotiate, he said.

May wants to refocus attention on Brexit talks following a disastrous speech at last week's Tory conference.

Allies dismissed suggestions that Mrs May would be gone by Christmas, and Mr Johnson used a newspaper article to appeal for party unity - but acknowledged there had been a moment while MPs "sniffed the air" before rallying round the embattled PM.

The prime minister told the Sunday Times: "I am a very determined person".

But the Conservative leader in Scotland, Ruth Davidson, told the BBC that while there had been some "unfortunate shenanigans" in the party, "the pushback has been pretty strong" against those trying to force a leadership contest. This, however, doesn't mean she is in the clear, and there are doubts about whether she can cling on beyond Christmas.

The documents on post-Brexit trade and customs arrangements were published as the Prime Minister told MPs that "real and tangible progress" had been made in the negotiations since her high-profile Florence speech last month.

Supporters of a hard Brexit meanwhile turned their fire on the Treasury, with Tory legislator Bernard Jenkin writing in the Guardian newspaper that it was "legitimising European Union threats of economic disruption".

"We shouldn't be proceeding with a president who is putting himself forward as - and I think some people in the administration are saying it's a deliberate policy that he's putting himself forward as - insane".

Davis - at May's side for her statement to parliament on Monday - will be in Brussels on Tuesday and is expected to have lunch with Barnier, officials said, while Wednesday's timetable remains empty for now.

This stalemate is bad news and makes either no deal or a best-case-scenario bad deal the most likely outcome. Just underlining that it is important that both sides are ready and able to move on. "Because what we are seeking is not just the best possible deal for us - but also the best possible deal for our European friends too".

Following a question from the former Conservative Party Leader Iain Duncan Smith, May said there was an "increasing interest" among European leaders to move onto trade talks to enable a final deal to be agreed within the next 18 months.

Meanwhile, in Brussels, Ms May's insistence that she would make no further compromises in the talks - she told the European Union "the ball's in their court" - was firmly rebuffed.
