British Prime Minister Theresa May has called for a “unique and ambitious economic partnership” with the European Union following Brexit.

In a speech to MPs, marking her first address to parliament since outlining her plans for Brexit in Florence on September 22, she has insisted that the UK can “prove the doomsayers wrong.”

It comes just as the fifth round of Brexit negotiations begin in Brussels.

These are the final talks before EU leaders decide if adequate progress has been made for talks to start about the Union’s relationship with the UK post-Brexit.

The speech follows the Tory leader’s turbulent address closing the Conservative Party Conference last week during which she experienced a coughing fit, a protester presented her with a P45 form and parts of the sign behind her fell down.
