Could there be a Brexit deal in November?

Could there be a Brexit deal in November?

"So, we think there's a deal to be had if they recognise that the deal is unacceptable to Parliament, I think that opens up a vista of the opportunity of the real negotiations".

With a Brexit deal nearing completion with Brussels, the PM is trying to secure the agreement of her cabinet to press on with finalising the terms for Brexit.

As May bids to rally support for her Brexit deal, where Britain would seek free trade in goods with the European Union while accepting some of its regulations, the Survation poll for Channel 4 suggested it was unpopular.

His comments came after another Dublin politician said a return to a hard border threatened the peace process, in a row following reports that a backstop plan was close to being agreed with Brussels.

Reports at the weekend suggested that the EU is now ready to contemplate concessions which would keep all of the United Kingdom in a temporary customs union following the end of a transition period due to end on December 31 2020.

"Looks like we're heading for no deal", Jeffrey Donaldson, one of 10 Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) lawmakers whose support May now needs to get any deal passed in the British parliament, said on Twitter.

Hopes of a special Brexit summit to finalise the withdrawal agreement in November appear to be receding.

With less than five months until Britain is due to exit the EU, May has yet to clinch a divorce deal, with negotiators stuck on the so-called "backstop" arrangement that would keep open the border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and EU member Ireland regardless of what course Britain takes after Brexit.

In a later statement, police said the man assaulted police, fled on foot, then was shot while lunging at police with the knife. Three people have been stabbed, including the fatality. "Unfortunately one is dead at the scene, two others are at hospital".

In a statement released Friday, Irish Deputy Prime Minister Simon Coveney called the meeting with Raab "very productive", adding that the two governments are "determined to see the Northern Ireland Executive and Assembly up and running again as soon as possible".

Theresa May has told ministers she is confident of reaching a Brexit deal with the European Union, but stressed "this would not be done at any cost".

But Senator Richmond said that what was described as a "very small" amount of trade was actually "14,000 commercial vehicles every day and 30,000 people crossing the Irish border" to and from what would become a "third party" country after Brexit.

Reports at the weekend that Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab has privately demanded the right to pull Britain out of the EU's proposed Irish backstop after just three months had been criticised by the Irish government.

"The prime minister said that, once agreement was reached on a withdrawal agreement, it remains the case that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed and it will be subject to securing an acceptable full future framework". The clock is still ticking and we will continue the work.

"The Cabinet must not be bounced - again! - into part-informed support for an untenable policy", prominent Brexiteer Steve Baker said on Twitter, referring to the July Cabinet meeting during which Mrs May got ministers to sign off on her negotiating strategy.

"Such an outcome will have serious consequences for economy of Irish Republic".
