Decision time: Brexit deal returns to parliament

Decision time: Brexit deal returns to parliament

They are likely to agree, as long as Britain leaves before elections to the European parliament in late May.

"If the votes go this week in a way which means that the prime minister's policy as she has set out and stuck to rigidly over the course of the last two and a bit years is taken away, dismantled slowly by Parliament this week, I think it would be very hard for the prime minister to stay in office for very much longer", Morgan told the BBC.

Downing Street said Mrs May's focus now was "getting on with the work required to allow MPs to support the deal and to bring this stage of the process to an end". If they reject that, then they will vote on Thursday on delaying Brexit.

Labour has held out the possibility of backing a second referendum that might reverse Brexit.

Brexit-supporting lawmakers in May's party had accused her of botching the negotiations with Brussels and surrendering on the detail of the backstop which sets out what happens to the Irish border if the sides fail to find a solution.

Germany's foreign minister says the U.K. Parliament's rejection of the Brexit deal negotiated on Britain's departure from the European Union was "reckless".

The British government also published the text of the motion for Tuesday's vote.

In preparation for such a scenario, Mrs May has promised to reveal details of the tariffs that will be applied to goods from the European Union in the event of no-deal tomorrow. This will be carefully watched by the DUP and other MPs who are vehemently opposed to the backstop. The plans cover how to avoid a hard border with Ireland and what tariffs would take effect.

"But we will do all we can to support people and businesses across Northern Ireland in the event that we leave without a deal".

"We will not fire our bullet this week", he said.

He said he is "deeply disappointed" with the outcome of the meaningful vote in Westminster tonight.

A senior cabinet source said the government had not ruled out holding indicative votes in the Commons to determine appetite for different Brexit options if there was a large defeat on Tuesday.

With EU leaders warning there would be no more changes or negotiations, and less than three weeks to go until the United Kingdom is due to leave, British lawmakers were facing a stark choice: support a deal many consider inadequate or run the risk that Brexit might happen chaotically, or not at all. "We're at five minutes to midnight, so it's got to be an off-the-shelf model", he said.

"Since her Brexit deal was so overwhelmingly rejected, the Prime Minister has recklessly run down the clock, failed to effectively negotiate with the European Union and refused to find common ground for a deal Parliament could support".

In a written legal opinion, Cox said that if U.K. -EU negotiations became stalled through "intractable differences", Britain would have "no internationally lawful means of exiting the Protocol's arrangements, save by agreement".

However, Britain's attorney general, Geoffrey Cox said the assurances Mrs May had been given still meant the United Kingdom could be locked in the bloc's orbit after Brexit.

"The legal instrument that we have agreed is an addition to the Withdrawal Agreement".

May is offering the possibility of a "short, limited" delay, but is herself opposed, warning that eventually MPs will have to make a decision about Britain's future.

The EU and Britain have also agreed a joint statement to supplement the Political Declaration, Lidington said.

"We will essentially be voting on exactly the same Withdrawal Agreement that we voted on last time and in very simple terms: if you ask the same question you are likely to get pretty much the same answer", said Mark Francois, a pro-Brexit lawmaker in May's Conservative Party.

"Let me be clear: the only legal basis for a transition is the WA".

"The Withdrawal Agreement is imperfect but it is the only deal on offer".

"We need radical change. and we need to see some steel in her stance", he said.
