Theresa May to call upon the EU to be flexible in Brexit negotiations

The Prime Minister is expected to make a statement

Theresa May is expected to call upon the EU to be flexible in its approach to Brexit negotiations as she attempts to break through the current impasse.

The Prime Minister is expected to speak in the Commons, saying the UK could get a deal to prove Brexit naysayers wrong.

The speech comes on the back of her disastrous address at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester last week.

May is expected to tell the EU the ball is firmly in their court as negotiations resume in Brussels.

Despite this, it appears to be unlikely the European Union will agree enough progress has been made to move onto talks about trade.

The issues currently on the table include EU national rights and the so-called Brexit divorce bill.
