May urges United Kingdom lawmakers: Give me more time to get Brexit deal

Labour's Brexit vote brigade An amendment, to be tabled by the Labour front bench and pushed by the shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer may struggle if it does not attract cross-party support or get picked up in another guise by a Conservative backbencher.

"We can't allow that to happen", Sir Keir told The Sunday Times.

Labour's Brexit policy chief Keir Starmer told the Sunday Times newspaper that his party would seek to use the debate in parliament this week to prevent May from waiting until the last minute to come back with a deal, and compel her to present a fresh accord for lawmakers to consider before February 26.

Mrs May survived a confidence motion in her government tabled by Mr Corbyn, which could have led to an election, after her Brexit deal was overwhelmingly rejected by MPs last month.

"I'm certain of one thing, is that it's not going to be as good as if they had not been Brexit, that is for sure", Lagarde said.

"There needs to be a day when Parliament says that's it, enough is enough".

"It's this blinkered approach that's got us to where we are, with her never wanting to see where the real majority is in parliament".

If no agreement on changes to the backstop are reached by Wednesday Mrs May is set to ask for more time for negotiations and will table a motion for debate.

Confederation of British Industry (CBI) director-general Carolyn Fairbairn said firms were now in the "emergency zone" due to the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, ahead of the March 29 European Union departure date.

The development marks a temporary victory for British Prime Minister Theresa May, who is battling to pass her withdrawal agreement with the European Union through Parliament.

May has been seeking changes to the deal with Brussels since it was rejected by a record majority in parliament on January 15.

An amendment being pushed in Parliament on Thursday would oblige the PM to bring her package back before MPs by February 26 - even if she has not managed to get any more concessions from the EU. The prime minister is now in talks with Brussels to seek these changes to the backstop.

Meanwhile, former Prime Minister Tony Blair - who wanted the United Kingdom to stay in the European Union - has told Sky News that a no-deal exit could be "devastating" for Northern Ireland's peace process.

Their meeting was understood to be focused on seeking to improve Anglo-Irish relations that have been soured in the dispute about the backstop proposals for guaranteeing no physical customs checks on the border with Northern Ireland.
