Battling PM "determined" Britain to quit European Union on time

Jean-Claude Juncker and Michel Barnier

In the Sunday Telegraph, May said, "It's why when I return to Brussels I will be battling for Britain and Northern Ireland, I will be armed with a fresh mandate, new ideas and a renewed determination to agree a pragmatic solution that delivers the Brexit the British people voted for, while ensuring there is no hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland".

May will be heading to Brussels following her victory in the House of Commons earlier when MPs, by a majority of 16, backed her European Union withdrawal deal providing she re-negotiates changes to the proposed arrangements over the Northern Ireland border issue.

Separately, May's office rejected a report in the Mail on Sunday newspaper that her advisors were considering an early election on June 6 if she got a Brexit deal through parliament.

Last month May suffered a record parliament defeat over her Brexit plans, and on Tuesday lawmakers instructed her to return to Brussels to renegotiate arrangements for Northern Ireland.

May also said that she is determined to deliver Brexit, and determined to deliver on time on March 29, 2019.

"Now the PM co-opts us into accepting everything but the backstop", he said on Twitter, adding if all that was agreed on the backstop was a codicil, May could "expect a further substantial defeat for the agreement".

The UK is due to leave the European Union at 11:00 GMT on Friday 29 March, when the two-year time limit on withdrawal negotiations enforced by the Article 50 process expires.

The Puppy Bowl XV will air on February 3 at 3:00 pm Eastern Time (February 4, 1:00 am Indian Standard Time) on Animal Planet . If you want to watch the actual Puppy Bowl online, you can watch it live on AnimalPlanet.com.

The backstop is meant to ensure there is no return to a hard border with Ireland, but Brexit supporters fear it will keep Britain tied to the EU's customs rules.

Mr Fox this morning said: "Are they really saying that they would rather not negotiate and end up in a no-deal position?"

The move, first reported on Saturday by Sky News, was confirmed by the company in a letter to workers Sunday.

Our political correspondent Chris Mason said that while Mrs May pledged to "go back to Brussels to secure a plan that Parliament can stand behind", the European Union remains publicly opposed to changing the backstop.

"The last thing this country needs is a general election, I think the people would never forgive us for it, I think what they want is this parliament to deliver Brexit in an orderly way", interior minister Sajid Javid told BBC TV.

"We also caution those who collaborate with the British that they are to desist immediately as no more warnings will be given", the group said.

The shadow chancellor claimed reports Theresa May might offer incentives to pro-Brexit backbenchers was the latest example of what he called the Conservatives' use of "pork barrel" politics, following its post-election spending deal with the DUP.
