The UK's plan for Brexit has just suffered another major blow

May averts a revolt but Parliament will have a bigger say in Brexit. Bloomberg’s Emma Ross Thomas reports

The move was branded "sneaky" by one backbencher while another senior pro-EU Tory said the wording of a Government amendment was changed at the last minute to deny MPs the chance of blocking a "no deal" Brexit.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said that she wished for a deal on UK-EU security cooperation to be concluded fast but the EU's stance falls a long way short of what she said she hopes to achieve.

Peers are due to vote tonight to support a rebel amendment tabled by Conservative Party ex-minister Lord Hailsham pledging Parliamentary votes on the outcome of Government's talks with Brussels.

"The government's current proposal would neuter parliament if the government failed to reach a Brexit deal".

This includes a call for a more "meaningful vote" on the Brexit process for MPs.

"The Prime Minister should be left in no doubt; any attempt to water down her promise to give Parliament a "meaningful vote" will end with MPs forcing a defeat on her".

"The alternative", Mr Grieve said, "is we've all got to sign up to a slavery clause now, saying "Whatever the Government does when it comes to January - however potentially catastrophic it might be for my constituents and my country - I'm signing in blood now that I'm following over the edge of a cliff".

The bill will now return to the upper House, where Lords can approve or reject this proposed compromise and attach further amendments to it.

"Parliament must be given a meaningful vote on all possible outcomes of Brexit - and this must be guaranteed in writing".

Faced with an "imminent Brexit defeat" on amendments to the European Union withdrawal bill, Theresa May chose to make a "tactical retreat", say George Parker and Laura Hughes in the Financial Times.

OnePlus 6 Review Roundup: Is It The Best Android Smartphone Of 2018?
OnePlus has finally introduced its much anticipated smartphone of the year OnePlus 6 in the Indian market at a price of Rs 34,999. More specifically, the Galaxy S9 starts out at $729, compared to the $529 that the base model of the OnePlus 6 is priced at.

The minister leading those negotiations, Solicitor General Robert Buckland, said the government was standing by its own proposal, rejected by party rebels last week.

"We recognise the concerns people have about the role of parliament", May told BBC television.

"Grateful for the conversations but without consultation what was agreed earlier today has been changed", she said.

Labour said the offer was "not good enough".

Admitting his rebellion may lead to the ousting of Mrs May, he said: "We could collapse the Government and I can assure you, I wake up at 2am in a cold sweat thinking about the problems we have put on our shoulders".

The British government faces another nerve-rattling test this week as its flagship Brexit legislation is picked over once again by a restive parliament.

Davis and May have argued that they can not accept anything which gives Parliament the power to bind their hands in negotiations with the European Union, or opens the door to lawmakers overturning the result of the 2016 Brexit referendum.

Britain's future trading and customs arrangements after Brexit have become a lightning rod for divisions that have plagued May's Conservative Party and the opposition Labour Party.

"The meaningful vote is going to be either the government's deal is accepted in which case that is the meaningful vote to accept it or it isn't accepted, in which case frankly there is going to be a new government", he told "Sky News".
