Newspaper headlines: Defiant May and plastic 'polluting' people
- 23 October 2018

The Daily Telegraph says the option of extending the transition period does not seem to have placated her MPs.
For the New Statesman website, time is running out and the prime minister just repeats herself.

Two Brexit-supporting papers offer their views on Theresa May's idea of extending the transition period following the UK's departure from the EU - and reach wildly different conclusions.
