United Kingdom set to lose European commissioner role over Brexit delay

Labour MPs leave the Cabinet Office after Brexit talks with members of the Government

"One possibility would be a flexible extension, which would last only as long as necessary as and no longer than one year", he said.

May needs to win backing on Wednesday for a delayed Brexit from an emergency meeting of the EU Council, made up of the leaders of the remaining 27 member states.

The British government will have to agree to losing its commissioner but it is unlikely the prime minister would put up a fight when she is presented with the terms of an extension.

On Tuesday, May flew to Berlin to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel, then on to Paris, where an aide to President Emmanuel Macron said France was open to solutions.

It goes on to say the European Union "expects the United Kingdom to fulfil this treaty obligation in a manner that reflects its situation as a withdrawing member state", while the length of the extension is left blank.

While the talks were taking place in London, May undertook a diplomatic push in Berlin and Paris in a bid to secure another extension to the negotiating process, despite being unable to present the credible alternative Brexit plan the European Union said it required to sanction such a move.

Japanese fighter jet disappears over Pacific
Japan selected the F-35A as the JASDF's next-generation fighter aircraft in December 2011 with an initial order for 42 F-35As. Lockheed Martin said in a statement that it was standing by to support the Japanese Air Self Defence Force as needed.

This is when the United Kingdom is scheduled to leave the European Union after MPs repeatedly rejected the Prime Minister's deal. If a new vote was held the survey found found Remain would triumph with 41 per cent of the vote, while Leave would garner 35 per cent and the remaining people either don't know or would not vote. Merkel said a delay that ran until the end of this year or the start of 2020 was a possibility.

"The length of the extension must be linked to the goal - what it's for - and that depends on what Mrs May will say to European leaders tomorrow", he said, after meeting EU ministers in Luxembourg.

The presenter took him to task on whether Mrs May would accept an even longer delay to Brexit. The U.K. could leave earlier than a newly agreed departure date if a deal is in place and Tusk reiterated that the U.K. could revoke Article 50 (the departure process) at any time.

The UK is increasingly likely to contest the European elections next month, after Theresa May's Conservative party formally began its process of selecting candidates for the poll. Several days of talks between May's Conservative government and the main opposition Labour Party aimed at finding a compromise Brexit deal have failed to produce a breakthrough.

Liam Fox, the global trade secretary, sent a letter Tuesday to leading Conservatives that a customs union for Britain would be the "worst of both worlds" and would leave Britain unable to set its own trade policy.

German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz told CNBC Tuesday that Germany is "well-prepared for an agreement or a Brexit without an agreement ..."
