Brexit backstop legal risk unchanged, says UK AG

Brexit backstop legal risk unchanged, says UK AG

It was a narrower outcome than the historic 230-vote margin of defeat for the agreement in January, before May secured changes from the bloc - but not by much.

At a joint press conference with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker late last night, May said three new documents agreed provided the legal assurances critics of her deal had called for.The Commons motion the PM wants MPs to back describes the first new document as "the legally binding joint instrument" relating to the Withdrawal Agreement.

However, considering the contention over the 'Irish backstop, ' there is a distinct possibility that Britain could still either exit the European Union without a deal, delay the exit, or cancel Brexit altogether.

"If you pushed me to the end point where it's a choice between no deal and no Brexit".

A leading cabinet source said there was increasing concern about the prospect of a no-deal Brexit by accident - on 29 March or at the end of an extension period - if there was no parliamentary majority for May's agreement because time was running out to pass legislation necessary to block one.

GBP price, Brexit latest and market sentiment: The UK Attorney General Geoffrey Cox has said the legal risk remains unchanged that the UK would have no internationally lawful means of exiting the Irish backstop in the event of Brexit.

"Now is the time to come together, to back this improved Brexit deal, and to deliver on the instruction of the British people", May said.

If she loses the vote, she has said MPs will get a vote on Wednesday on whether to leave without a deal and, if they reject that, then a vote on whether to ask for a limited delay to Brexit. Afterward, hard-core Brexit supporters in May's Conservative Party and the prime minister's allies in Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party both said they could not support the deal.

In a written legal opinion, Cox said the United Kingdom could still not extract itself from the terms of the divorce deal unilaterally, a key demand of pro-Brexit British politicians.

So what exactly are the details of the new agreement between the United Kingdom and the EU?

First, a joint instrument with comparable legal weight to the withdrawal agreement will guarantee that the European Union can not act with the intent of applying the backstop indefinitely.

Some British lawmakers had warned their Brexit-backing colleagues that rejecting the deal could lead to Britain's departure being postponed indefinitely, because a delay would give momentum to opponents of withdrawal.

Sterling also fell two cents against from £1.32 to £1.30 against the dollar.

What happens after that is anyone's guess, with many MPs, including the Labour party, advocating for a second referendum.

"It complicates the issue, it leaves us with the possibility still of a no-deal Brexit, and uncertainty over politics more generally".
