UK PM May: Getting rid of me risks delaying Brexit

UK PM May: Getting rid of me risks delaying Brexit

The EU is likely to approve the agreement later this month.

Speaking to The News, MEP and former UKIP leader Nigel Farage said: 'This deal is the worst in history and is a trap to keep us stuck inside European Union rules.

The vote by MPs on the Brexit deal is anticipated to take place before Christmas - possibly in early December, before the next European council summit on December 13.

He told Sky News there was support in parliament and in Europe for a "unity platform" that avoided a no-deal Brexit.

"Now that the details of the deal are available we can see how truly very bad it is", he wrote, calling for a vote of no confidence.

He added that a deal should be demanded that would allow the country to leave the Customs Union unilaterally.

Mr Barclay had not been widely regarded as a front runner for the new Brexit ministerial post and has not been thought of as a prominent spokesman for the vote leave campaign.

Corbyn, on which way he would vote in such a referendum, said: "I don't know how I am going to vote, what the options would be at that time".

If she loses, she would no longer be party leader, but would continue as prime minister until such time that the party finds a replacement.

Sturgeon will say: "The UK Government's refusal to even consider the Scottish Government's detailed plan to keep Scotland in the single market, while accepting a differentiated solution for Northern Ireland, which we support, potentially puts Scotland at a competitive disadvantage".

"The job of prime minister is to make tough decisions which are not always black or white. So as of today, I am not in a position to state that I will be supporting the deal".

The government will technically have 21 days to set out how they intend to proceed in a statement, but in such a scenario, the United Kingdom leaving the European Union without a deal, a renegotiation of the existing proposal, holding a general election or even staging a second referendum on European Union membership would all be eminently possible outcomes.

CIA concludes Saudi crown prince ordered Jamal Khashoggi’s death, sources say
Paul, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said "the Saudis have been duplicitous since the very beginning". Khashoggi, a Saudi who lived in the United States, was a columnist for the Post and often criticized the royal family.

Labour leader Mr. Corbyn says his party, which has 257 MPs, will not support the deal.

The letter raised concerns about the final vote being constrained in an "attempt to muzzle Parliament".

After a tumultuous week, Theresa May said the proposed withdrawal accord would only be signed off if the future relationship deal was satisfactory.

"For the first time in a generation or more we will decide who comes to this country and, just as importantly, who does not", the defiant prime minister said.

British political correspondents also reported that Gove, Fox and other pro-Brexit ministers would meet this weekend to amend May's deal.

Sky said government whips, who enforce discipline in the party, had been summoned to parliament as a challenge was close.

"The point of principle here was that even if there wasn't a majority for any of these amendments, there ought to be the opportunity for those views to be expressed".

But Mrs May responded to critics saying she will stay in No 10 and see the deal through. "I don't think that is necessarily clear".

Deputy leader Nigel Dodds said: "The damning criticism expressed by the former Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab spelt out how risky this Withdrawal Agreement is".

She also told Tory MPs considering submitting letters calling for a no confidence vote in her that a leadership context would "delay the negotiations" and could "frustrate" Brexit altogether.

The Prime Minister is facing a mounting rebellion by Tory MPs, 24 of whom have written to chair of the 1922 Committee with letters of no confidence in May.

But yesterday it was understood the coup attempt was still 11 letters short, despite predictions enough letters would have been received by Friday.
