The ball's in your court, May tells European Union leaders

The ball's in your court, May tells European Union leaders

Former prime minister Sir John Major hit out at the "self-absorbed" and "disloyal" behaviour of some Tories who are "driven by their own personal agenda" - comments viewed as a slapdown to Mr Johnson - while Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said being a politician should "never be about private ambition". But May is so weak that she can not even sack ministers who are openly undermining her.

The Conservative former deputy PM Lord Heseltine said he believed a reshuffle was now inevitable given the prime minister's "unenviable" position - but it would be risky to return Mr Johnson to the backbenches. The prospect of no deal on Britain's exit from Europe is looking increasingly likely by the day.

Also, EU officials are slightly disappointed with the nearly no change in British negotiating position despite May's promising speech in Florence.

The Prime Minister is set to face MPs in the House of Commons this afternoon to update them on the progress of Brexit talks.

"We have taken decisive steps forward on citizens' rights, Northern Ireland and on a large number of the separation issues".

Winter/spring - If talks are proceeding to plan, negotiators can be expected to be getting into the nitty-gritty on how future trade relations will work while ironing out final details of the divorce deal.

BAE Systems, the UK's largest defense firm, is reportedly set to announce the axing of 1,000 jobs.

"The UK has a duty to our tax payers to interrogate that European Union position line by line", said Davies.

It followed a disastrous speech at the party's conference and a snap election in June in which May lost her party's majority in parliament.

Ten teams confirmed for World Cup; more to come Friday?
The United States would then need to hope that Costa Rica and Mexico take down Honduras so it can have a shot at finishing fourth. A win would put the USMNT on the cusp of qualification while a loss would put them in a somewhat precarious position.

"Of course Germany has economic interests in the Brexit negotiations but those won't necessarily lead to a more sympathetic position towards Britain".

"The truth is my feelings can be hurt, like everyone else, but I am pretty resilient", she said.

An attempted challenge to May's leadership surfaced on Friday but failed because not enough MPs supported it. "It is clear that we need to have a reboot and that means it is time to move on".

British Prime Minister Theresa May is looking for compromise from the European Union (EU) in order to move Brexit talks on to the second phase, dealing with future trade arrangements.

Interviewed by the Real News Network, he went further on, contradicting the downward household debt trajectory implied by Mark Carney, (Bank of England's Governor), in his recent speech, last week.

He was responding to questions about May's statement to the Parliament in London later on Monday, in which she will say "the ball is in their court", according to her office.

This stalemate is bad news and makes either no deal or a best-case-scenario bad deal the most likely outcome. However, she will add that she still believes she can negotiate the best deal possible for the United Kingdom and EU.

In a statement released to the media the night before the start of the fifth round of negotiations Ms May had argued that her Florence speech meant European Union had to give ground and that "the ball's in their court".

The British Prime Minister Theresa May made a speech a few days before the fourth round.
