European Union trashes Theresa May's Brexit plan

Dover and Deal MP Charlie Elphicke said: "European leaders have been insulting our country".

Mrs May concluded her statement by saying: "The EU should be clear, I will not overturn the result of the referendum, nor will I break up my country".

At a news conference at the conclusion of the summit, Mrs May struck a defiant tone, saying she had always expected negotiating "tactics" to be used during the course of the Brexit process.

Making a statement a day after European Union leaders rejected key parts of her Brexit proposals, May said negotiations were at an impasse. "We need serious engagement in resolving the two big problems in the negotiations and we stand ready".

The EU insists that there can be no hard border between the British province and the Irish Republic, with Northern Ireland remaining in the bloc's customs union or effectively establishing a border in the Irish Sea if no alternative deal is reached.

French president Emmanuel Macron piled on May's proposals, warning: "We all agreed on this today, the proposals in their current state are not acceptable, especially on the economic side of it".

The tone of some of their comments, particularly the irony of European Council President Donald Tusk, left May exposed at home as she heads into what is expected to be a tumultuous annual conference of her Conservative Party from September 30. When the Conservatives meet for their annual conference on September 30, they plan to push for May to ditch the Chequers plan, or face a challenge to her leadership.

Jimmy Butler asks Wolves to trade him
However, according to Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic Minnesota, Thibodeau has been resistant to the idea of trading Butler. Karl-Anthony Towns called #fakenews on sleuthing that suggested he and Jimmy Butler were involved with the same woman .

For the British media, the message was clear.

"If all conventional roads lead to a hard no-deal Brexit, the notion of Parliament exerting control and forcing another referendum on us would begin to look not wholly fanciful", Peston wrote in the Spectator.

"Your Brexit's broken", the Daily Mirror newspaper said on its front page.

"The first is our economic relationship after we have left".

Mr Tusk said the October meeting of the EU Council would be a "moment of truth" in negotiations.

Many business chiefs and investors say a so called "no-deal" Brexit would weaken the West, panic financial markets and block the arteries of trade.

Miller said the European Union had "made it very clear where they stand and the United Kingdom has been so focused on its own infighting that they actually have not been listening". Scotland's top court ruled on Friday that the European Court of Justice should consider whether Britain could unilaterally change its mind on Brexit. "To deny its legitimacy or frustrate its result threatens public trust in our democracy".
