Brexit: Johnson and Corbyn meet but can't agree timetable for bill – live news

Prime minister will have to decide whether to carry through with call for election if EU offers lengthy extension

Poland’s Europe Minister has rejected a plea by the Polish-born Tory MP Daniel Kawcznski to veto an extension to Brexit, according to Jakub Krupa, the former UK correspondent for the Polish Press Agency.

A split in Downing Downing street has opened up between Boris Johnson’s chief aide, Dominic Cummings, other senior officials and Tory ministers and MPs over what to do after the failed attempt to ram a Brexit deal through parliament this week, BuzzFeed reports.
