Your Duty Is To Deliver Brexit, Nick Ferrari Tells Tory Remainer

Remain-supporting Dr Lee quit as justice minister live on stage during a speech in London, saying he could not support "how our country's exit from the European Union looks set to be delivered". At this point, the main way in which a no-deal Brexit might happen is if the process simply runs out of time and the United Kingdom is unable to get Article 50 extended.

It's been revealed ex-Tory ministers Ken Clarke and Anna Soubry rebelled against the government by voting against the motion to disagree with Lords amendment, created to give Parliament a vote to prevent a "no deal" Brexit.

A section of Labour MPs are expected to defy the official party position and vote in favor of a Lords amendment to keep the United Kingdom in a Norway-style trading arrangement, better known as the European Economic Area (EEA), post-Brexit.

Dr Lee, who represents the Leave-voting Bracknell seat, said in a lengthy resignation statement: "Our Parliament should be able to direct our Government to change course in our interests". "I can not support the government's decision to oppose this amendment because doing so breaches such fundamental principles of human rights and parliamentary sovereignty", he said.

What is the "meaningful vote" about?

The government won the first set of votes Tuesday, but looked set to face defeat on the issue of whether Parliament should have a "meaningful vote" on the Brexit deal.

"If Brexit is worth doing, then it is certainly worth doing well; regardless of how long that takes", he said.

Lee said "the people, economy and culture of my constituency will be affected negatively" by Britain's European Union departure, and it is "irresponsible to proceed as we are".

The Lords amendment would have given parliament the power to decide what happened next, with the possibility of going back to the negotiating table or even staying in the bloc.

These were the words of a minister expecting to win the vote.

Those apostasies came back to haunt Sanford, even though Arrington was also a vocal Trump critic during the 2016 GOP primary. Virginia features four House races that are expected to be competitive in November's general election.

"I trust our PM to honor the undertaking she gave", said Anna Soubry, one of the pro-EU Tory rebels.

British Prime Minister Theresa May narrowly avoided a major blow to her Brexit strategy Tuesday after MPs rejected a plan that would have given parliament a veto on the final deal negotiated with Brussels.

MPs voted 324 to 298 to reject the proposal, which had come to parliament after the Lords brought amendments to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill.

He confirmed that ministers will seek to overturn 14 amendments which he said would undermine the goal of the Bill and fail to respect the result of the 2016 referendum. The strength of this commitment is yet to be seen in writing - and the Brexit department is still insisting it has not given up control of the negotiations - but the anti-Brexit rebels showed they have the numbers to force a defeat should the government renege on its pledge. "I am sure a sensible amendment will be forthcoming which we can all agree to".

However, Devon Tory Sarah Wollaston signalled that she would back Mr Grieve's amendment. "Labour will only vote for a final Brexit deal if it delivers a strong relationship with the single market based on full tariff-free access and ensures no loss of rights and standards", Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Facebook.

But it seems a threatened rebellion may have been seen off by a last-minute compromise amendment reached between Remain and Leave supporting MPs calling for "a customs arrangement". The two sides aren't yet clear exactly on the terms of their deal, but it looks likely that Parliament will emerge with a greater say in the process.

But once Britain leaves the E.U.it must find a way to regulate or otherwise account for goods crossing its border into Northern Ireland while keeping it open.

Traders will stay tuned into Brexit noise where the UK Prime Minister faces a series of challenging parliamentary votes on her plan to leave the customs union and single market after Brexit, but it will soon be time for the European Central Bank and FOMC.

However, despite backing down, pro-Remain Tories signalled they would not be easily consoled by a compromise offered by ministers.
