John McDonnell: I don’t trust PM after media reports on Brexit talks

Senior Conservatives said on Saturday there was an increased need for compromise after the local election results, and the leader of the Scottish branch of the Conservative Party said a deal with Labour could be done within days.

"Let's listen to what the voters said in the local elections and put our differences aside for a moment".

The Conservative Party could lose four million voters if it takes a harder line on Brexit and tries to "outdo" Nigel Farage, the newest Cabinet minister has warned.

The Conservatives are desperate to move forward after losing hundreds of positions in last week's local authority elections.

The Prime Minister admitted she understood why Conservative MPs found the decision to hold talks with Labour "uncomfortable", and said it was not what she wanted either.

He said Labour and the Conservatives' positions were a "quarter of an inch apart", telling Sky News' Sophy Ridge of Sunday: "I think a deal can be done, a lot of this rests on... whether Jeremy Corbyn really wants to deliver a Brexit deal".

The paper says she could put forward plans for a comprehensive, but temporary, customs arrangement with the European Union that would last until the next general election.

Sir Graham Brady, the chairman of the 1922 committee of Tory backbenchers, told the same paper that staying in a customs union could lead to a "catastrophic split" in the Conservative Party at a time when the opposition is led by "dangerous extremists".

"We have to make a change, " former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith told LBC radio.

"The very worst thing we could do at this time is a Westminster stitch-up whether over the PM's deal or another deal", the 104 opposition MPs from Labour, SNP, Change UK, Green and Plaid Cyrmu wrote, according to The Observer.

A temporary customs union would also be likely to raise EU concerns that it could lead to customs checks on the border between euro zone member Ireland and the United Kingdom province of Northern Ireland if it later breaks down - something Ireland objects to strongly.

But shadow chancellor John McDonnell accused the Prime Minister of jeopardising the talks, claiming she had "blown the confidentiality" of the discussions.

"They don't want us to bail the prime minister out of the problem of her own making, and a very large number of our members think the people should decide on what that deal looks like".

However, both May and Corbyn are facing a backlash from their backbenches if they sign up to a deal, with many Labour MPs prepared to reject any deal without a second referendum and many Tory MPs vehemently opposed to a customs union.

However, the sources did not think a deal was necessarily imminent, as Labour might wish to delay any agreement until after the European elections to maximise the damage to May.
