Grieve: May's plans make whole Brexit process questionable

There will be an "exit clause" from the customs union in a bid to convince Brexiteers that it is not a permanent arrangement as May looks to secure enough votes to get the deal through parliament, said the paper.

He said there was a "rapidly ticking clock" but that minds were now being focused with a view to concluding a deal and he welcomed that.

Speaking to Sky News on Monday on whether Theresa May can get a Parliamentary majority to pass her Chequers Plan, which would leave the United Kingdom tied to numerous bloc's regulations, Mr Farage said: "In classic Brussels style, at the 11th hour there will be a deal, I've no doubt about that".

"The Democratic Unionist Party is rightly anxious about the future of the Union and many Conservatives are too".

"Brexit has undermined the Good Friday Agreement" - the 1998 peace deal that ended three decades of violence in Northern Ireland - "and it is fraying relationships between Britain and Ireland", Varadkar said.

Insisting that negotiations are "ongoing" at a technical level, the Commission's chief spokesman summed up progress by telling reporters: "Not there yet".

The Prime Minister was reported last night to have secured private concessions from Brussels that would keep the whole of the United Kingdom in a customs union with the EU.

Under the banner headline "May's Secret Brexit Deal", the newspaper said she's also on course to gain an agreement on a "future economic partnership" that will allow Britain to keep open the prospect of a similar free-trade accord to the one Canada has with the EU.

Again, they were far from their best, unnerved at times by Arsenal's energy and incisiveness, particularly in wide areas. Murphy added: "I've really liked seeing the Gomez and van Dijk partnership come together this season".

"We continue to make good progress in the negotiations but there is work still to do", the prime minister's official spokesman said.

"Negotiations are still very firmly continuing, and therefore we are 95% of the way there in relation to the Withdrawal Agreement. That is why we are increasingly positive on the expectation of reaching a deal", he said at a conference in London today.

Reports at the weekend suggested that the EU is now ready to contemplate concessions which would keep all of the United Kingdom in a temporary customs union following the end of a transition period due to end on December 31 2020.

"He recalled the prior commitments made that the backstop must apply "unless and until" alternative arrangements are agreed".

The UK is looking for an agreement based on an improved version of the EU's "equivalence" system of financial market access. "Are we being hurtled toward a Hotel California Brexit where we can check out but never leave?"

Waterstones chief executive James Daunt, ex-Sainsbury's chief executive Justin King, Lastminute.com founder Baroness Lane-Fox and Innocent Drinks co-founder Richard Reed were among signatories of a letter calling for a People's Vote on leaving the European Union.

However, May's former Brexit Secretary has said she must publish legal advice on any deal ahead of a Commons vote, so MPs are fully briefed.
