Tánaiste to discuss border backstop talks with Barnier

He stressed that the EU needed to protect its single market from Britain piggybacking on Northern Ireland's special status and to provide a "legally operational" solution - meaning he will resist a political fudge in language or a deal that would push resolution of the Irish problem until after Brexit in March and into negotiations on a future EU-UK trade agreement.

"The pressures being put on our services by immigration from the European Union has meant that tough limits have been put in place on immigration from outside the EU".

The Prime Minister is expected to brief the other 27 leaders on proposals over dinner and they will then have a separate discussion on Thursday after she has left.

But many business chiefs and investors fear politics could scupper a deal, thrusting both the European Union and Britain into a "no-deal" Brexit that they say would weaken the West, panic financial markets and block the arteries of trade.

"One of them is the issue of how to avoid a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland". "But if we all act responsibly, we can avoid a catastrophe". That's what's important for us and that's what I'm focusing on.

One told the paper that a "substantial change in the United Kingdom red lines" was required, while another said: "It seems the United Kingdom needs to have a "darkest hour" moment before they will shift position".

The Times reported that Mr Barnier was preparing to insist that any political declaration agreed with Mrs May on the future relationship can not easily be unpicked by her successor. But with time running out for London and Brussels to thrash out a deal, Britain is preparing plans for a no-deal Brexit.

Theresa May said on Sunday she was focused on securing a deal based on her Chequers plan, but admitted to being "a little bit irritated" by constant speculation about her position.

However, the PM has said the counter-proposal to her Chequers plan is "still a hard border" and hers is the only way that does not "carve up the United Kingdom". And he said his party would "definitely" vote against Chequers when it comes to a vote in the Commons.

Speaking in Brussels, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator said the European Union was ready to improve its proposal on the so-called Irish "backstop" after Brexit.

"I see that in Brussels they're now discussing actively some of the technical ways of dealing with this that I think will allow for a breakthrough, allow us to do a proper free trade deal, allow us properly to take back control of our regulatory framework, but also to do a proper Brexit", Johnson told reporters outside his home. "Of course, Boris Johnson doesn't agree with some of the policy decisions that she's taken, but Theresa May has to speak not just for the 52% who voted for Brexit, she has to speak for 100% of the country and she has to find a way that builds bridges and unifies the country and that's what I'm confident she will do".

Ruth Lea, an economist with Arbuthnot Banking Group and a Brexit advocate, accused the International Monetary Fund of joining a new round of "Project Fear", a term Brexit supporters use for pre-referendum warnings of the economic consequences of a Leave vote. "(But) if there's not going to be a general election, the next best thing is for the British public to have a say on the outcome of the negotiations", he told the BBC's Andrew Marr.
