Brexit: EU urges May to DROP red lines as PM faces no confidence vote

Mrs May launched a furious attack on the Labour leader in brutal clashes at PMQs (pictured) ahead of a no-confidence vote tonight. But despite suffering a massive Commons defeat on her Brexit deal last night, Mrs May flatly ruled out revoking the Article 50 process - and insisted she was still determined to respect the result of the referendum. The defiant stance came as the EU and Remainer MPs heaped pressure on Mrs May to change tack, with calls for another national vote and Michel Barnier urging her to drop 'red lines'. The Prime Minister has been left scrambling to find a way forward after suffering the biggest Commons loss ever for a government, with an extraordinary 118 Tories rebelling against the plan. The escape routes for the premier appear to be closing, with the EU signalling a tough line. A senior German minister this morning dismissed the prospect of delaying Article 50 unless there is a clear 'path' for getting an agreement implemented. And the EU's chief negotiator Mr Barnier goaded Mrs May by demanding she respond by abandoning her long-standing negotiation positions, such as ending free movement, ruling out a permanent customs union, and ending the jurisdiction of EU law.
