UK's May says she'll still have job after big Brexit vote

Lydia FlemingDec 05, 2018

And if the deal doesn't go through, then No Deal becomes a distinct possibility, and businesses do need to prepare.

But opponents say this risks tying Britain to the European Union for years to come, and with no say in the bloc's rules, leaving it a "vassal state".

Mrs May is due to kick off a marathon five-day debate on the terms of Brexit, culminating in a series of dramatic votes next Tuesday.

And asked if she was "knackered" after her busy schedule trying to convince the public of the deal's benefits, she admitted it was a "tough time", but said she is driven by staying focused on the "end point" of "getting a good deal through for the United Kingdom and delivering on what people voted for".

Ms Sturgeon said: "I used today's meeting with the Prime Minister to reiterate that it can not - and must not - be a false choice between her proposed deal and a no-deal outcome, which threatens to be utterly disastrous for jobs, business and living standards".

Pro-European MPs pressing for a second referendum with the right to stay in the EU received a boost Tuesday from an opinion issued by a legal adviser to the European Court of Justice (ECJ).

"This is not a, sort of "oh, well, it's just any old vote", she said. As long as some lawmakers shout "no", the speaker will call a formal vote, known as a division. She's proposing an amendment to Starmer's motion, which would buy the government some time. But it could help to sway some members of Parliament to back May's deal if businesses start leaning on them.

Cooper said the parliament had to take control because May had "done so little to build trust or confidence so far".

"That means there should be an extension to the Article 50 process, and we will join with those from other parties in trying to secure such an extension".

"It's unlikely, actually very unlikely, to be published before the vote", Javid told Radio 4's Today programme.

The first issue facing Mrs May this week will be the intensifying demands for the Government to release the full legal advice on the Withdrawal Agreement.

There were other issues pervading the aircraft, pertaining to its airspeed and altitude sensors, the report noted. Information from the recovered black box showed that the pilots struggled with a safety system that was broken.

Lawmakers are voting on a motion finding the government in contempt of Parliament for refusing to publish the full guidance from Attorney General Geoffrey Cox.

On Monday afternoon, Cox gave the Commons a pared-down statement setting out only what the government was prepared to reveal it was told.

The main thrust of Cox's advice is already known - the government released a 43-page document on it Monday in a bid to fend off the contempt motion.

As a outcome, the prime minister faces what is unquestionably a hard set of circumstances, and matters will doubtless come to a head on the 11th, only a week or so before members of the Westminster Parliament plan to disperse for the Christmas holidays.

Mark Rutte said the remaining 27 European Union members won't adjust the deal if British Prime Minister Theresa May loses a December 11 parliamentary vote.

Remember, May has no majority, and the Democratic Unionist Party are against her on this one, so even if every Tory votes with her, she's got no guarantee of winning.

She also revealed she had discussed future trade deals with Canada, Australia, Chile, Japan and Argentina, which hosted the meeting. "It's the same as any other job".

She will tell MPs: "The British people want us to get on with a deal that honours the referendum and allows us to come together again as a country, whichever way we voted".

"I believe that we can win the argument and win the vote". But for businesses, investors and individual British citizens, the black box inside Number 10 Downing Street creates a great deal of uncertainty as we enter the final month of 2018.

The Labour leader had previously indicated his support for a rival ITV proposal based on a simple one-on-one format, in contrast to the BBC offer which also involves the leaders taking questions from a wider panel.
