Prime Minister calls on MPs to 'hold their nerve' on Brexit

Exhaust fumes are choking in many UK cities

Olly Robbins, the U.K. Prime Minister's Europe Adviser and Chief Civil Service Brexit negotiator, arrives for a meeting at the Cabinet Office in London on December 6, 2018.

Robbins reportedly suggested that MPs will be served an ultimatum in March: either accept UK Prime Minister Theresa May's deal, or expect a long extension to Article 50.

Amid the labyrinthin plots and counterplots of Brexit, the United Kingdom's most significant political and economic move since the Second World War, some major investors, such as Ford Motor Co., are trying to work out whether to shutter U.K. production.

The ERG's anger centres on a reference in the motion to a separate vote in which MPs opposed a no-deal Brexit.

The result of the vote will be purely symbolic, as it will not be legally binding, but a defeat would be a setback for Mrs May as she tries to persuade Brussels to change.

While the motion on Thursday will be merely an expression of the House's will without legal impact, losing it would show the European Union how fragile the government's majority is, weakening May's argument for restarting negotiations.

Mrs May pledged to return to Parliament on February 26, if no deal has been secured before that time, to report back on progress and trigger a further MPs' vote the following day. "Extension is possible but if they don't vote for the deal then the extension is a long one".

The group including Labour MP Yvette Cooper and Tory former ministers Sir Oliver Letwin and Nick Boles said their plan was created to prevent the country drifting into a no-deal Brexit "by accident".

"Got to make them believe that the week beginning end of March".

"We shouldn't be put in a position where the clock is run down and the prime minister says it's either my deal or even worse".

With 45 days to go however, Mr Grieve warned time was running perilously short under the terms of the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act which requires 21 sitting days before the ratification of any global treaty.

The Act requires 21 sitting days before the ratification of any worldwide treaty, to allow MPs to study the agreement.

Mr Clarke's plan, tabled for debate on Thursday, envisages MPs ranking options in order of preference on a ballot paper under the alternative vote system.

"So while we will follow normal procedure if we can, where there is insufficient time remaining following a successful meaningful vote, we will make provision in the Withdrawal Agreement Bill - with Parliament's consent - to ensure that we are able to ratify on time to guarantee our exit in an orderly way".

"We never pushed for Brexit, we never demanded Brexit", Bettel said. "That isn't right in terms of the respect for parliament", said Starmer.

The analysis suggested that although the country had experienced a "positive year" economically, with growth in areas such as exports and high labour market performance, uncertainty around the UK's withdrawal from the European Union remained a "live risk".

Olly Robbins was overheard in Brussels by ITV News saying that MPs would be made to believe that any further rejection of her deal would lead to the two-year Article 50 exit period being extended by a "long" time.

In stormy exchanges in the Commons, the SNP's Westminster leader Ian Blackford risked being thrown out of the chamber after shouting "liar" at the PM.

Labour party sources have claimed Jeremy Corbyn is working to push through a Tory Brexit so he can "wash his hands" of it.
