Brexit: Jeremy Corbyn says cross-party talks have 'gone as far as they can'

Jeremy Corbyn has said talks with the government to find a compromise over Brexit "have gone as far as they can".

The Labour leader said the six weeks of cross-party

discussions could not carry on due to "the increasing weakness and instability" of the government.

The two parties are now expected to discuss how to put a number of options to MPs to break the deadlock.

On Thursday the PM promised to set a timetable for leaving Downing Street following a Brexit vote next month.

Theresa May will try once again to gain the support of MPs in the week beginning 3 June, when the Commons votes for the first time on the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill - the legislation needed to implement her deal.

BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said if the bill were defeated, Mrs May would be expected to announce that she was stepping down.

The UK was due to leave the EU on 29 March - but after MPs voted down the deal Mrs May had negotiated with the bloc three times, the EU gave the UK an extension until 31 October.

This prompted negotiations between the Tories and Labour to see if the parties could come to a Brexit agreement.

Labour's favoured plan includes a permanent customs union with the EU, meaning no internal tariffs (taxes) on goods sold between the UK and the rest of the bloc.

It also keeps the option of a further referendum on the table, giving the public a say on the deal agreed by Parliament.

Both scenarios have caused anger among Brexit-backing Conservatives, who claim a customs union would stop the UK to negotiating its own trade deals around the world and who believe another public vote is undemocratic.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog
    and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like
    yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    There is certainly a great deal to learn about this subject.
    I really like all of the points you made. It's
    perfect time to make some plans for the long run and it's time to be happy.
    I've read this post and if I may I desire to recommend you some interesting things
    or tips. Maybe you could write subsequent articles regarding
    this article. I wish to read even more issues about it! I’ve been browsing
    on-line more than three hours nowadays, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s beautiful value enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you
    probably did, the internet will probably be a lot more helpful
    than ever before.
