May offers Corbyn further Brexit talks in attempt to secure deal

British Prime Minister Theresa May meetings in Brussels on February 7 made no breakthrough and fears of a

Japan has sought to extract hefty concessions from Britain before Brexit, while talks with many nations have been delayed by the lack of clarity over Britain's future trading relationship with the EU.

Elsewhere Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay was said to have held "constructive" talks on Monday night with the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier in Brussels.

In her letter, May questioned Corbyn's call for the United Kingdom to remain in a customs union with Brussels but said she wanted further talks with the Opposition on a Brexit deal.

Mr Corbyn wants Britain to maintain a customs union with the bloc in a bid to keep trade as frictionless as possible and avoid any potential disruption to businesses.

May and her government have repeatedly said membership of a customs union would prevent it having an independent trade policy - something they have promoted as one of the main economic benefits of leaving the EU.

"It's clear that Jeremy Corbyn... he's done a complete U-turn", Mr Johnson told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

The deal garnered significant controversy because of a provision known as the Northern Irish backstop, with Brexiteers insisting a no-deal, full Brexit from the European Union would be preferable to a Theresa May deal with that provision.

"On your point about the deadline and could we have a time limit, I think it must be pretty obvious that if you are going to have a time limit to the backstop and I think that would be a very good thing".

May wants to win over lawmakers in her Conservative Party with changes relating to the Northern Irish border, but the EU has refused to reopen that part of the deal and instead wants May to pursue a compromise with the main opposition Labour Party by agreeing closer UK-EU ties.

As the Prime Minister prepares to update MPs on the latest developments in the Brexit negotiations on Tuesday afternoon - a day earlier than expected - Andrea Leadsom dismissed the prospect of Mrs May adopting Jeremy Corbyn's "world view".

She insisted her deal already met numerous conditions he had set.

She said: "I am not clear why you believe it would be preferable to seek a say in future European Union trade deals rather than the ability to strike our own deals?"

"Is she firstly trying to get her own team back on board to put her deal yet again with some supposed changes, and that's what looks like she is doing, or is she genuinely looking to see a majority for Labour's proposal of a customs union single market alignment".

She told Sky News: "I absolutely do not think that should be our policy".

While the prime minister says existing rights will be protected, there will be no automatic upgrade in line with the EU.

In a letter to Tory Party chair Brandon Lewis, the activists said any attempt to work with Labour to secure a deal or renege on manifesto commitments would be "catastrophic" for the party and lead to "severe electoral defeats" in the forthcoming May local elections.
