Theresa May tells Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn: 'Let's do a Brexit deal'

She said she wants to find a "unified, cross-party position" with Labour, but admitted her own MPs "find this decision uncomfortable".

"To the leader of the opposition, I say this: let's listen to what the voters said in the elections and put our differences aside for a moment".

The British Prime Minister is trying hard to gain opposition support to get her Brexit deal through parliament this time.

Senior Conservatives said on Saturday there was an increased need for compromise after the local election results, and the leader of the Scottish branch of the Conservative Party said a deal with Labour could be done within days.

The Conservatives lost 1,334 councillors, while Labour failed to make expected gains, instead losing 82 seats.

It was only the chestnut colt's second win in seven career starts and his first stakes victory. Country House , at 65-1, had the second-longest odds of any Kentucky Derby victor .

The talks are set to enter a serious phase on Tuesday, after both leaders expressed a willingness to get a deal done following a month of technical negotiations.

Tom Watson, the Labour deputy leader, also told Pienaar's Politics that the party wanted a permanent customs union in any deal and would not be "bailing out" the government by signing up to a bad agreement just to get Brexit sorted.

The Brexit Party most recently polled at 30 per cent of voters questioned over who they were planning to back in the European parliament elections, ahead of Labour's 21 per cent and the Conservatives' 13 per cent, according to a survey by YouGov.

"We need to get out of the European Union and get a deal over the line".

"The key thing is the Government want to be able to do their own trade deals and my concern is that if we have a trade deal with the United States, for example, that could mean Trump's America and big private healthcare corporations getting their hands on NHS contracts".

But as predicted, its smartphone sales were down, accounting for $31 billion versus $37.5 billion this time previous year . That's the reason why Apple shares surged even if its core product sales recorded a double-digit year-on-year fall.

Mr McDonnell accused Mrs May of acting in "bad faith" after the Sunday Times reported that the Prime Minister would put forward plans for a comprehensive but temporary customs arrangement with the European Union that would last until the next general election.

Other members, including numerous influential backbench 1922 Committee of MPs have told Mrs May to go or suggested that they will change party rules in order to force a second vote of no confidence in her leadership.

"Well, Keir is leading our negotiating team so unless he is happy with the deal I don't think there is going to be one", he said.

On the other side of the Brexit divide, the Observer newspaper reported that scores of Labour lawmakers had written to May and Corbyn to insist on a second Brexit referendum on any deal agreed.

However, both May and Corbyn are facing a backlash from their backbenches if they sign up to a deal, with many Labour MPs prepared to reject any deal without a second referendum and many Tory MPs vehemently opposed to a customs union.
