Brexit Brief: Cross-party talks in doubt as rejection of May’s deal looms

High-stakes Brexit talks between the U.K. government and main opposition party were hanging by a thread on Friday, with some reports claiming they were close to collapse, two weeks ahead of a fresh parliamentary vote on EU withdrawal.

The BBC was reporting on Friday morning that negotiations between Prime Minister Theresa May and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn were “set to close with no deal”, but a report in the FT said May’s allies insist they are continuing.

May has pursued talks with the opposition party for six weeks, after her Brexit deal was voted down three times by parliament, including large numbers of her own MPs.
