  • Theresa May insisted that there would not be another vote

Farage on Wednesday backtracked on his earlier referendum comments, in a debate with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in the European parliament.

'If tomorrow, or the day after, the United Kingdom made a decision to change its mind, it's clear that we would look at this with kindness, ' a key aide said on Macron's behalf.

"He recognised that along with other member states who have benefited so much from the European Union, we have a particular responsibility now to lead on the future of Europe debate", McGuinness continued.

Opposition to the bill focused on its sweeping powers to change European Union regulations as they are transferred and to authorise any Brexit agreement with the bloc.

Speaking in the EU Parliament on Tuesday morning, he added: "Wasn't it [UK Brexit secretary] David Davis himself who said 'if a democracy can not change its mind, it ceases to be a democracy?' We here on the continent haven't had a change of heart - our hearts are still open to you". On the first part of Brexit talks, Juncker said he had the privilege to have a close working relationship with Varadkar, adding that both the EU Commission and the Irish government worked side by side to move to next phase of talks, adding that the partnership would "continue and grow stronger".

"I just get the feeling that, whether it's the Good Friday Agreement, whether it's the border or whether it's trade, he is part of an attempt by this place to make Brexit as hard as possible".

"In fact, talks on the future relationship with the European Union haven't even begun".

AFC championship game: 10 fast facts for Jaguars-Patriots
Being here is nothing new , of course, for New England , which has advanced to the Super Bowl in three of the past six seasons. The Vikings open as a 3 ½-point favorite against the Eagles , while the Patriots open favored by 9 1/2 in their game.

The Prime Minister's only other option could therefore be to leave with no deal and trade under World Trade Organisation rules.

The Frenchman is pushing the United Kingdom towards a Canada or Japan-style trade deal as he believes this is the only option for Mrs May given her many Brexit red lines.

Varadkar also said he supported the idea of an EU "Marshall Plan" for Africa to stem the flow of migrants, and to avoid a larger wave of people arriving from Africa seeking asylum or a better life in Europe.

An EU diplomat said Juncker's comment was not about reversing Brexit but only about eventually rejoining, adding that the newly emollient tone was because "we are not in a hostile mood".

"That's as true for American tech companies as it is for European auto manufacturers, or for worldwide aerospace and defence companies", he said, adding that Ireland has taken steps to close loopholes in Irish tax rules.

It comes just one day after Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, said he was open to a "change of heart" from the UK.
