We risk ending up with no Brexit at all, - May

Dominic Grieve has said Jeremy Corbyn would be “disastrous” as Prime Minister

Dominic Grieve has said Jeremy Corbyn would be “disastrous” as Prime Minister

May's interview on The Andrew Marr Show on Sunday morning came as she fights to keep alive her plan for Brexit in the face of opposition from a number of Tory MPs.

Revealing it for the first time, May said: "He told me I should sue the European Union".

In the incendiary interview, with the Sun newspaper, the U.S. leader criticised Mrs May's handling of Brexit negotiations, hailed Boris Johnson - who quit the cabinet earlier this week - as a future and "great Prime Minister" and said there was too much immigration in Europe.

Trump said Queen Elizabeth, 92, was a "fantastic woman", adding: "up close, you see she's so handsome. and she's got a lotta years left".

Standing next to the Prime Minister at a press conference at Chequers, the President shifted his stance from that in The Sun's world exclusive interview where he warned a softer Brexit would "probably kill" a United States trade deal. "She wanted to go a different route", Trump said.

Mrs May said threatened Commons revolts by pro- and anti-EU MPs risked undermining any chances of a deal with Brussels.

In a scathing article in the Sunday Express, Mr Rees-Mogg suggested there had been an attempt to "gull Brexiteers", warning it had "broken trust".

Xiaomi fails to impress on its Hong Kong debut
Xiaomi's shares dipped in early trading, hitting HK$16 in mid-morning trade, down almost 6% from the HK$17 they had been sold at. At opening, each Xiaomi share was valued at 16.60 Hong Kong dollars ($2.12), below the initial offering price of HK$17 ($2.17).

Hours after he told The Sun May's Brexit plan could kill an agreement, Trump said the relationship between the two allies is at "the highest level of special" after talks at Chequers, and a post-Brexit trade deal between the two countries "will absolutely be possible", which is in sharp contrast to the headlines.

Only hours after arriving, Trump made the prime minister's life even more hard, with scathing criticism of her in a newspaper interview.

"'Don't walk away from those negotiations because then you'll be stuck.' So I want us to be able to sit down to negotiate the best deal for Britain". He said her plan would allow European Union regulations to harm British manufacturers. "As he said in his interview with The Sun she "is a very good person" and he 'never said anything bad about her, '" the White House responded. "We have been discussing this option".

"Or we could have said: 'OK let's look at moving forward, let's look at an alternative proposal, ' which we have put forward". Discussions have been taking place for some considerable time...

She added: "David Davis was discussing with Michel Barnier".

"I am yet to see a workable alternative future trading arrangement that would deliver on our commitments to Northern Ireland, preserve the constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom and deliver on the result of the referendum", she wrote.
