The prime minister is in a bind.

"The government confirmed that she would not take "no-deal" off the table", Corbyn said in a speech in Hastings, scene of a battle in 1066 that ushered in the Norman conquest of England.

In a written response to him on Thursday, the prime minister said that it was "impossible" for her to rule out a "no deal" scenario without stopping the process altogether.

But Downing Street refused to make such a concession, with the Prime Minister's official spokesman saying: "Want to leave with a deal but she is determined to deliver on the verdict of the British public and that is to leave the European Union on March 29 this year".

The ministry said Duncan "reiterated that regardless of the outcome of Brexit, the rights of Romanian citizens in Britain would be respected".

May will publish her revived Brexit blueprint on Monday, before lawmakers debate it - and doubtless try to alter it - on January 29.

She added: "It will not be an easy task, but MPs know they have a duty to act in the national interest, reach a consensus and get this done".

"A hard Brexit with its huge costs must be avoided", said ifo president Clemens Fuest.

To "create the most dynamic economy possible", the United Kingdom needed a series of "free ports"-a form of free trade zone-in designated areas of a country around seaports, riverports and airports where goods are exempt for any tariffs and taxes: "There are now 135 countries in the world that have such free ports with all their power to attract the growth of all kind and it is absurd that Britain will be forbidden by this deal from doing the same".

Talks to end the U.K.'s Brexit stalemate appeared deadlocked Friday, with neither Prime Minister Theresa May nor the main opposition leader shifting from their entrenched positions.

"If she wants to negotiate with all parties in Parliament, and if she wants to do that in good faith, she has to say "OK, I'm not sticking to every single one of the red lines that I've established", he told ITV's Good Morning Britain.

Corbyn insists Labour will not take part unless May first rules out a "no-deal" Brexit, which she says she doesn't have the power to do. He said the government "hadn't even tried" to get rid of the backstop.

An EU official will now visit all 27 capitals to co-ordinate no-deal plans.

She told The Yorkshire Post: "I don't think Parliament is going to be able to come down in favour of a particular deal".

European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier said the bloc was open to the possibility of a "more ambitious" Brexit deal than May's rejected agreement, which he said could not be improved on under the principles she had originally set out.

"We want to keep the damage - and there will certainly be damage from Britain's departure - as small as possible", German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Wednesday.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said he will not hold talks with Theresa May until she rules out a no-deal Brexit.

Mr Johnson called on the British government to "use Brexit to unite the country" and focus on the issues that drove the vote for European Union withdrawal.
