Labour party lashes out at Brexit talks fiasco

The Union flag flies outside EU headquarters in Brussels

Brexit, the Irish border and the DUP's role dominated Wednesday's session.

'So the final settlement won't be agreed until we've actually got the whole of the deal agreed.

She joked the only hard border was "down the middle of the Labour party".

Labour's Brexit spokesman Sir Keir Starmer was damning: "What an embarrassment - the last 24 hours have given a new meaning to the phrase "coalition of chaos".

More recently, the Labour party had attacked the handling of the negotiations and demanded to drop the fixed Brexit date, 29 March 2019.

The prime minister pulled out of a deal with Brussels that would have kick-started trade talks after meeting fierce resistance from the DUP.

After the Northern Ireland DUP lashed out at the proposal for the Irish border on Monday, the government still needed to reach an agreement to move ahead with the divorce from the EU.

The DUP objected to a clause in a draft agreement with the European Union that would guarantee "regulatory alignment" between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

The prime minister needs the support of the DUP, which is Northern Ireland's largest party and has 10 MPs at Westminster, because she does not have a majority to win votes in the House of Commons.

Mrs May is due to update ministers at a cabinet meeting later.

The EU is treating the row as a "domestic British political issue", BBC Brussels correspondent Adam Fleming said.

The Electoral Commission, Britain's election watchdog, said it was looking into a range of issues, including whether the campaign group exceeded spending limits or submitted incomplete or inaccurate expenditure records.

Ms Sturgeon appealed to other parties to keep the United Kingdom in the EU's customs union.

The Labour leader accused the government of being "a coalition of chaos" and said "the tail really is wagging the dog", following the DUP blocking an agreement being made with the European Union over the Irish border post-Brexit.

He believed the DUP had been spoken to beforehand about what was being proposed, but that the precise wording had not been explained and the Northern Ireland party "clearly thought twice".

Backbench Tory MP, former minister and Hard Brexiteer David Jones did appear on the show, alongside crossbench peer and former top Foreign Office official Lord Ricketts.

"The Electoral Commission has today announced it has opened an investigation to establish whether Momentum, a registered non-party campaigner at the 2017 UK Parliamentary General Election, breached campaign finance rules in relation to spending", the commission said in a statement.

He added that he stood by the text of a draft deal "agreed" on Monday.
