With the UK's Brexit referendum just around the corner, British members of the European Parliament are hard at work campaigning in Strasbourg. Some are for parting ways with the EU and some are against, but all agree a break-up would be painful.
The UK's Prime Minister Theresa May has admitted that a "no deal" on Brexit would be better than a bad deal. Apart from being delusional, how damaging will it be for all concerned?
Prime Minister Theresa May has urged a summit of European leaders to lay out a plan for Brexit negotiations to move forward. But her EU counterparts say they first need to see more concrete offerings from the UK's side.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said she firmly believes a Brexit deal can be reached despite a lack of details from Britain. Merkel also said EU leaders agreed to cut financial aid to Turkey over rights violations.
Theresa May has not left Brussels empty-handed, but at the end of a two-day EU summit, the bloc still lacks "all the details we need." EU leaders remained at odds on some internal reforms, as well.
