All 27 European Union leaders believe current Brexit trade plan "will not work"

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May

May had gone to Salzburg and pitched Chequers in person to the EU27, hoping for encouraging words for her plan, which seeks to smooth the path for post-Brexit trade with the continent, and keep borders as open as possible, by closely tying British regulations and tariffs to Europe's.

They've spent two days in Salzburg, Austria trying to do just that, but with no clear solution in sight, the sides have tried to ramp up pressure on each other.

"We have very clear principles regarding the integrity of the single market and regarding precisely the Irish border", French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters at the summit in Salzburg. "We want to avoid a 'No Deal Brexit, ' but we are preparing for that".

An EU official said: "Things did not happen as we expected".

- Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said his country is better prepared for a no-deal Brexit than Britain and an agreement is "not easy" because of Mrs May's red lines.

"There's tough language and actually a deal is done at the last".

After a dinner of Wiener schnitzel in Salzburg, EU leaders said they will push for a Brexit deal next month but warned May that if she will not give ground on trade and the Irish border by November they are ready to cope with Britain crashing out. The removal of border infrastructure was a key part of the Good Friday Agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland after years of sectarian strife.

"What we want to avoid is any new barriers to the movement of goods, any new barriers to trade, any new barriers to the movement of people", Varadkar said.

Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, says parts of May's Chequers proposal would undermine the 27 EU members.

But in that same period-just four years into the future-the study says that up to 130 million more human jobs will be created. The report also predicts that advances in machine learning and digital automation will eliminate 75 million jobs by 2025.

Each is urging the other to compromise, while European Union leaders issue constant warnings to Britain about the Brexit clock ticking.

Her former Brexit Minister David Davis has warned that there is, what he called, a rock solid core of 40 MPs who would vote against any plan reached under Mrs May's Chequers proposals.

Theresa May has tried to rally European Union leaders for a divorce deal to tackle the "uniquely complex situation" of Brexit. But May said a divorce deal is within grasp if both sides show "good will and determination".

But Tory MP Andrew Bridgen told BBC Radio 4's World Tonight that he is not surprised the Brussels bloc rejected her proposal, adding: "There was a long shot chance that they might think that Chequers was a compromise they could make to keep Theresa May in office".

European Union leaders repeated their view the plans would undermine their cherished single market.

However, at the gathering in Austria, Mrs May insisted there would be no delay to the UK's March 2019 departure, no second referendum and therefore the onus was on the continent's leaders to find a solution if they wanted to avoid a no-deal Brexit.

But she paid tribute to the "remarkable and astonishing" resilience of the Prime Minister, and backed her to reach an agreement that would avoid the United Kingdom crashing out of Europe without a deal.

London and Brussels should rule out a "no deal" Brexit, which could add at least 5.7 billion euros ($6.65 billion) in vehicle tariffs and snarl up production, Britain's automotive industry body warned on Wednesday.

His comments were supported by Macron, who described Chequers as "not acceptable", and Merkel, who vowed their would be "no compromises" when it comes to the Single Market.
