Britain, EU to begin Brexit negotiations on Monday

The others have ruled out letting May negotiate in person with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and others.

"The thing we all want to avoid is something that's not organised", she said.

Mr Gove said: "Labour argued that we should leave the European Union and end free movement, in effect be outside the single market".

Pressed on reports of secret talks between Cabinet ministers and Labour MPs, Mr Gove said the two parties had a "similar" position on Brexit and the reality of the hung parliament meant the Government would have to "work with everyone".

Britain entered a sixth day of political limbo on Wednesday with Prime Minister Theresa May yet to seal a deal to prop up her minority government and facing calls to soften her stance on Brexit days before negotiations on leaving the European Union begin.

Even with a deal nearing to secure her government's survival, May is so weakened that her Brexit strategy has become the subject of public debate inside her own party, with two former prime ministers urging her to soften her approach.

A week after May lost her majority in an election she had called in the hope of strengthening her hand in the talks, some fellow Conservatives want her to focus more on limiting the damage to business and less on cutting immigration and other ties to the European Union when Britain leaves the bloc in March 2019.

But a newly appointed junior Brexit minister, Steve Baker, told Reuters: "I don't foresee any change".

France's Macron said the EU's door was still open for Britain as long as the negotiations were not finished, but that it would be hard to reverse course.

"It will be a brand new door with a new Europe, a Europe without rebates, without complexity, with real power and with unity".

"It is certainly politically desirable and provided for in the texts", she said. Divisions over Europe helped sink the premierships of Margaret Thatcher, Major and Cameron, and many of her lawmakers and party membership support a sharp break with the EU.

May has given no indication that she will change her plan for Brexit, though she has said she will try to achieve broader agreement across her party. The party has refused to give a time frame for reaching a deal, though May is due in Brussels for an European Union summit on June 22-23 when she will want to show she has a solid grip on power.Besides forging a deal to keep her job and preparing for Brexit talks, May is also grappling with a crisis over the breakdown in power-sharing between the pro-British DUP and the Catholic nationalist Sinn Fein party in Northern Ireland's separate, devolved government.She is also trying to contain outrage at home over a London tower block fire which left at least 30 people dead.

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier also warned Tuesday that time was passing. They have struggled for years with Irish nationalists, who want the British province to join a united Ireland.
