May's deal rejected for second time

May's deal rejected for second time

Manufacturing and agricultural businesses piled pressure on DUP over the issue, highlighting that under a Brexit deal rejected by MPs on Tuesday, Northern Ireland would have instead had access to markets in both the European Union and the rest of the UK.

He conceded that the government had listened to businesses and protected some areas of industry from cheap imports, but said businesses have very little time to prepare if no deal is reached. The EU's latest concession has not been able to convert enough sceptics. However, the text of the 585-page withdrawal agreement remains unchanged.

However, her party has also confirmed that it will not push for a parliamentary vote on a second referendum this week even if the Brexit deal is resoundingly defeated.

With EU leaders warning there would be no more changes or negotiations, and less than three weeks to go until the U.K.is due to leave, British lawmakers were facing a stark choice in a vote later: Support a deal many consider inadequate or run the risk that Brexit might happen chaotically, or not at all.

The paper said: "MPs should hold their nerve, refuse to be panicked, reject her poor offering and vote for extra time to find an answer that is best for Britain".

The pound has slumped by more than 1 percent against the dollar after the British Attorney General's assessment of Prime Minister Theresa May's reinforced expectations that lawmakers will reject it.

A small group of British citizens who oppose Brexit were in an Irish pub in Belgium's capital when they watched a vote on their country's future. The government said this was to "ensure access" to those markets is "maintained".

The legal judgement on the instrument issued by Attorney General Geoffrey Cox today noted: "T$3 he legally binding provisions of the joint instrument and the content of the unilateral declaration reduce the risk that the United Kingdom could be indefinitely and involuntarily detained within the protocol's provisions at least in so far as that situation had been brought about by the bad faith or want of best endeavours of the European Union".

Parliament is due to vote later on the divorce deal, a day after talks with the European Union produced promises that a contentious section of the agreement couldn't be used to tie Britain to the bloc indefinitely.

Sterling climbed from yesterday's one per cent drop from $1.309 against the dollar this morning to $1.315 as markets expected the United Kingdom to push towards ruling out no-deal and instead seek a Brexit delay in a vote due tomorrow.

But MPs rejected it in January by 432 votes to 202, eventually voting for her to renegotiate the controversial backstop arrangement, which is meant to keep the Irish border open after Brexit.

German EU affairs minister Michael Roth, called it "a far-reaching compromise".

While the Government has said it does not want a return to a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic, it is concerned that key goals of leaving the single market and customs union would be made difficult by the arrangement. May did so, she would "forfeit the confidence of the House of Commons".

The U.K.is set to leave the bloc March 29 as a result of a 2016 referendum where British voters chose to leave the union after more than 40 years of membership.

A spokesman for European Council president Donald Tusk said: "It is hard to see what more we can do".

May said new documents to be added to the deal provided "legally binding changes" to the part relating to the Irish border.

Cabinet office minister David Lidington told the House of Commons on Monday night that the two sides agreed on a "joint instrument" clarifying the withdrawal deal. It continues to push for a general election, with the party's shadow Chancellor John McDonnell insisting to the BBC that a Labour deal - that would involve the United Kingdom remaining in a customs union and close alignment to the single market - could be agreed within "weeks".
