MPs Threaten Government Shutdown to Stop No Deal Brexit

MPs Threaten Government Shutdown to Stop No Deal Brexit

"The closer we get to March 29 without a deal, the more assets will be transferred and headcount hired locally or relocated", EY UK Financial Services leader Omar Ali said.

The Prime Minister repeatedly sidestepped questions in the interview on whether she would simply keep putting the deal back to MPs with amendments in an attempt to get it through.

Officially slated for the week of January 14, the Commons vote is expected to be held on Tuesday, January 15.

She said these involved new measures specific to Northern Ireland, a greater role for Parliament in shaping the Brexit process and further assurances from Brussels, with the last yet to be finalised.

In an effort to assuage MPs concerns, May has lobbied her European counterparts and officials in Brussels to make concessions on the clause.

European Union officials have insisted that the withdrawal agreement can't be renegotiated, although they also stressed that the backstop was meant only as a temporary measure of last resort.

"Today's trial can not possibly duplicate the reality of 4,000 trucks that would be held at Manston airport in the event of a no-deal Brexit", Richard Burnett said.

Moves so far would be only the "tip of the iceberg" if there is a no-deal Brexit, EY said. Its effect would be to restrict the government's freedom to make Brexit-related tax changes without parliamentary safeguards.

The main opposition Labour Party has also pledged to vote down May's deal in parliament and threatened to initiate a no-confidence vote in her leadership should MPs refuse to back her plan.

Global stocks soar on dovish Fed, strong U.S. jobs data
But some investors have anxious that that process could push long-term rates higher at a time when the economy was slowing. Data released earlier on Friday showed USA employers added the most workers in 10 months as wage gains accelerated.

Meanwhile, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said over the weekend that while it would be in Ireland's interests to see the withdrawal agreement accepted, ultimately, it is a decision for the British parliament at Westminster.

"If we have to have the vote 30 times, we will", they said.

However, polling released on Friday suggest that Tory members are even more opposed to May's deal than their MPs, with a majority calling on parliament to vote it down later this month.

Former Cabinet minister, Johnson argued the exit scenario delivered by Theresa May's withdrawal agreement doesn't have anyone's support and warned that the British public "won't be scared" into backing it.

While one lorry driver taking part in the government's no-deal Brexit operation appeared very relaxed with it all, tweeting from his cabin that he had his "feet up drinking coffee".

In a letter published by United Kingdom newspaper the Mail on Sunday, May warned critics of her departure plan risk damaging Britain's democracy and weakening its economy by opposing her deal.

Mrs May said the vote would "definitely" go ahead and that between now and then she would set out "assurances" in three key areas with the hope of gaining enough support to get her deal through. The 2016 referendum voted 52 to 48% in favour of leaving.

When the undecided and those who refused to answer were removed from the sample, the split was 54-46 in favour of remaining.

The poll of more than 25,000 voters was commissioned by the People's Vote campaign, which is spearheading an increasingly vocal push for a second referendum on Brexit.
