The EU expert revealed that some EU leaders believe Brexit can be "reversed" as he pointed out how Mrs May's Chequers proposals are "completely in tatters". The currency was trading down a sharp 1.5 percent on the day at $1.3066.

"With just four weeks until a hoped-for final deal and with the issue of the Irish border still deadlocked, the chances of a no-deal Brexit in March have risen further over the past 48 hours", said James Stewart, KPMG's head of Brexit analysis. "That is why the exit deeply saddens me", Juncker said.

"I think that's what we should do now, she should announce that as the policy and she should also tell the European Union that by making the decision not to engage with Chequers, we will not be giving you the £39 billion".

"If the EU's view is that just by saying no to every proposal made by the United Kingdom, we will eventually capitulate and end up either with a Norway option or indeed staying in the European Union. then they've profoundly misjudged he British people", Jeremy Hunt told BBC radio.

May refused to countenance the EU's offer of continued single market membership.

But the United Kingdom has rejected the EU's proposal to achieve this by "effectively keeping Northern Ireland in the customs union".

Mrs May is thought to have had a "blazing row" with Mr Tusk before he made his announcement and warned counterparts she could not make any more compromises, the Daily Mail reports. A good relationship depends on it.

Kelley Hughes said no trooper was stationed at the barricades, though others barricades in the area have had stationed troopers. It had gotten dark, and responders decided it wasn't safe to try to retrieve the women's bodies from the van Tuesday night.

He also told the Prime Minister she will have to rethink her Chequers blueprint for Brexit, saying the plan will not work in its present form.

"At this stage in the negotiations, it is not acceptable to simply reject the other side's proposals without a detailed explanation and counter proposals", May said.

French President Emmanuel Macron argued that the entire Brexit project was sold to the British people by "liars" who immediately fled the stage, unwilling to see their project through.

The claims emerge as Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says he plans to side with Tory Brexit rebels to force Mrs May into a general election as early as November.

A rattled May insisted that her plan was the only one on the table - and that Britain was prepared to walk away from the European Union without a deal if it was rejected.

"Likewise her determination not to erect barriers between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic is sensible and something many have previously suggested".

"What comes out of conference I will adhere to. That is the kind of country we are, '" Mr Hunt said.
