Theresa May has Brexit Chequers plan rejected by European Union leaders

Here we look at what the European Union leaders said - and what they really meant. Warm words would have been enough.

European Union chief Donald Tusk said the other 27 leaders "all agreed" that the complex plans at the heart of the Chequers deal "will not work".

Plus, according to multiple reports, May really did not help her cause when she sat down for dinner with European leaders.

UEFA opens disciplinary proceedings against Ronaldo
Having consulted with his assistants, referee Felix Brych sent Ronaldo off and the forward left the Mestalla pitch in tears. But, what can not be argued against is that the 33-year-old only has himself to blame for the mess he now finds himself in.

Tusk said a Brussels summit on October 18 would be a "moment of truth" to overcome remaining big problems and leaders pencilled in the weekend of November 17-18 to formalise a final agreement.

Speaking from Salzburg on Wednesday, Mrs May rubbished calls for a second referendum and said: "I know that for many of you Brexit is not something you want but it's important to be clear there will be no second referendum in the UK".

May's plan involves keeping parts of the single market after Britain leaves the European Union but she has been told it can not be cherry-picked. Neither side wants an arrangement that would require the rebuilding of border infrastructure, the removal of which was a key part of the Good Friday Agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland after years of sectarian strife.

They deride her willingness to bind Britain into much European Union regulation in return for free trade; some would prefer a no-deal "hard Brexit" in March, despite warnings that would ravage the British economy.

Jet Airways also added that they are, "extending full cooperation to the DGCA for the ongoing investigation of the event". According to reports, 30 out of 166 passengers experienced nose ear bleeding while some others complained of a headache.

Donald Musk said that: "The suggested framework for economic cooperation will not work".

The extraordinary attack, at the close of the EU Salzburg summit, is likely aimed at Vote Leave leaders like former foreign secretary Boris Johnson and environment secretary Michael Gove, and possibly former UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

May however said her Brexit plan is the "only serious and credible" proposal on the table that can guarantee the frictionless movement of goods across borders, and ensure there is no return to a hard frontier between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The next major milestone in the Brexit process is fast approaching, with the October 18 summit labelled a "moment of truth" by Tusk. When the Conservatives meet for their annual conference on September 30, they plan to push for May to ditch the Chequers plan, or face a challenge to her leadership. "We want to avoid a 'No Deal Brexit, ' but we are preparing for that". 'The people made their choice and it is our duty to deliver on the result, ' she said. "There is a lot of common ground on the basis of [the United Kingdom plan], especially in the area of domestic security and also foreign cooperation and other issues, but there is still a lot of work to do on the question of how future trade relations will look".
