UK Parliament votes to create financial obstacle to a 'no-deal' Brexit

UK Parliament votes to create financial obstacle to a 'no-deal' Brexit

In a warning to pro-Remain MPs on Wednesday, cabinet minister David Lidington said if Mrs May's Brexit deal was rejected, the United Kingdom would leave without a deal.

Nevertheless the vote will be seen as another blow to the Prime Minister's authority as she struggles to win support for her Withdrawal Agreement. Some investors and major banks believe May's deal will be defeated on Tuesday but that eventually it will be approved.

"He is not impartial on this or frankly any other issue". But the deal has run into fierce opposition among MPs, particularly from a group of Ms.

Theresa May's Conservatives could become the biggest party in Yorkshire if Labour is blamed by its own voters for "sitting on the fence" over Brexit, a new survey has suggested.

The government needs 318 votes to get a deal through parliament as seven Sinn Fein lawmakers do not sit, four speakers and deputy speaker do not vote and the four tellers are not counted.

So if May came back with an alternative plan, that could be amended by MPs, giving parliament far more scope in setting the direction.

UK Brexit minister Martin Callanan ruled out that prospect and said May would update MPs on Wednesday about the assurances over the backstop she is seeking from the EU.

Earlier on Wednesday, May called on parliament to back her deal, suggesting she was confident of securing further assurances from the European Union to ease their concerns and offering Northern Ireland more control over the "backstop" arrangement to prevent the return of a hard border with European Union member Ireland.

Tory MP Ken Clarke, who backed the amendment, said that those who did not like the amendment should "don a yellow jacket and go outside" to join some of the hard-right protesters who had harassed MPs outside parliament. With less than three months before Britain leaves the European Union, there is no indication the country will have any arrangements in place, with the European Union governing issues such as border controls, banking relations and even whether Britons will be able to use their cellphones in Europe.

Brexit supporters are anxious that there is no mechanism for Britain to unilaterally withdraw, meaning it could end up indefinitely stuck in the union, hampering its ability to strike deals with the rest of the world.

Images of a policeman beating several protesters in the southern city of Toulon last Saturday have also been widely condemned. Leetchi initially defended its hosting of the fundraising, saying that as a platform it was required to remain "neutral".

Sources in Brussels have told AFP for several weeks that Britain has been discussing the possibility with European officials, while this was also reported in the Daily Telegraph newspaper on Tuesday.

"While they play politics, we will act in the national interest - delivering on the referendum decision with the right Brexit deal and building a country that works for everyone".

Her deal, he said, was "ruinous". Still, more have suggested the country leave without a deal and then negotiate a trade agreement.

Complicating matters is that there does not appear to be a clear majority for any alternative.

She is hoping new proposals on Northern Ireland will change enough MPs' minds to save the deal.

But she has little room to manoeuvre.

But the Democratic Unionist Party, on whom Theresa May relies for her Commons majority, have already rejected the so-called "Stormont lock" plans as "cosmetic" and "meaningless". The DUP has come out against Ms.

Opposition lawmaker Yvette Cooper said it showed the strength of concern about the dangers a no-deal Brexit could pose to manufacturers, jobs, food prices, policing and security. The Tories are also deeply divided.

While no debate was allowed on the amendment, which had been put forward by former Tory Attorney General Dominic Grieve, MPs spent more than an hour raising points of order in the Commons to challenge the Speaker on his decision.
