Government makes last-ditch appeal for Brexit vote backing

Manchester Britain

In the first, MPs backed an amendment aimed at making it more hard to leave the European Union without a deal. "It would be a catastrophe", Juncker said.

"We are checking with Downing Street what the clarifications could amount to".

"I don't like the prospect of a no-deal. With the time it has bought, the government can pursue a new plan, but it will still be working towards a deadline to resolve the same deep political divisions over what Brexit should look like", said Haralambous.

Asked whether MPs could bring forward legislation to revoke Article 50, Cable told BBC TV: "Yes that is exactly what will happen and that is exactly what we should be doing because it would be absolutely outrageous and unforgivable if the chaotic circumstances of a no deal were allowed to happen". "So we need to explore what those circumstances might be and have an opinion so that how we can proceed from there".

Their opposition to what they see as an overly soft exit has dogged her deal from the start.

"What Article 50 says is: "The EU Treaties shall cease to apply to the State in question from the date of entry into force of the withdrawal agreement or" - and here's the key - "failing that, two years after the notification" so the notification was the letter that was delivered that Theresa May spoke about".

If Mrs May loses Tuesday's vote as expected, she must table a new plan by Monday.

MPs are due to vote on May's deal on Tuesday.

It plowed along the platform and into the overhanging roof of the transit shelter, carving deep into the vehicle's second deck. He says they will also have to survey the wreckage using drones, go over video and data gathered from the bus and bystanders.

She has repeatedly told MPs that "no deal is better than a bad deal".

It says that a leaders' summit to push back Brexit is expected to be convened once a British request is received.

Mrs May has warned of a "catastrophic" breach of trust if Brexit is thwarted.

The PM's future hangs in the balance as MPs prepare to pass their judgement on her divisive Brexit deal in a so-called "meaningful vote" on Wednesday. "In our view, the longer this political deadlock lasts, the higher the probability of a second referendum to break it and give the United Kingdom government popular legitimacy to pursue one of the potential options".

"I'm not saying for one minute that the whole economy will grind to a halt, but there are very specific industries in this country for which a no deal Brexit will have an immediate negative impact". "We have seen from this week that parliament has the ability to assert itself and to shape outcomes".

On Sunday, the Brexit secretary, Stephen Barclay, insisted there had been "some movement" by MPs in favour of May's deal while suggesting the prime minister would take guidance from parliament on what MPs could support should it fail.

Mrs May was boosted on Thursday by two Tory backbenchers - her former policy adviser George Freeman, and Trudy Harrison - indicating they will back her deal, as well as by a call from Japanese PM Shinzo Abe for the United Kingdom to avoid no-deal.

Lawmakers are scheduled to vote Tuesday on the agreement May reached with the European Union, and the prime minister appears no closer to getting the backing she needs than she was in December, when the vote was dramatically pulled after it became clear the government was heading for a defeat.
