Brexit breakthrough as May secures win

Brexit breakthrough as May secures win

If the deal is rejected, lawmakers will vote on Wednesday on whether the government should pursue a no-deal exit.

At a joint news conference, Ms. "These are the legally binding changes that parliament asked us to secure".

"The legal instrument that we have agreed is an addition to the Withdrawal Agreement".

Some British politicians call this a "Hotel California" Brexit, because, from their perspective, "You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave". It is what you do with this second chance that counts. "There will be no third chance, there will be no further reassurance on the assurances if this deal fails", Juncker said.

Parliament rejected May's deal by 230 votes on Jan.15, prompting the British leader to return to Brussels in search of changes to address the so-called Irish backstop - an insurance policy created to prevent the return of a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The joint UK-EU statement in the non-binding political declaration commits both sides to develop new technologies at the border to replace the need for the backstop by December 2020.

That was because MPs were unhappy with the Northern Ireland backstop and were anxious the United Kingdom could be held in this insurance policy indefinitely, if the United Kingdom is unable to agree on a future relationship with the European Union by the end of the transition period, 31 December 2020.

Juncker said he recommended the deal to the EU Council, which represents member states, and that Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar was prepared to back the changes on the backstop.

The EU is unwilling to reopen an agreement it spent a year and a half negotiating, while British legislators remain split over whether to leave the bloc and, if so, on what terms.

Britain s House of Commons overwhelmingly defeated the deal in January and was expected to do so again on Tuesday without meaningful change.

Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald meanwhile said: "The British Parliament voted by a landslide to reject the Withdrawal Agreement and Theresa May's latest proposals". It is the main sticking point for the majority of British lawmakers.

May has pledged not to lead her party into the next general election, which is scheduled to be held in 2022. She has already survived votes of no confidence by her own party and Parliament as a whole.

The EU is frustrated at what it sees as the inability of Britain's weak and divided government to lay out a clear vision for Brexit.

"This evening s agreement with the European Commission does not contain anything approaching the changes Theresa May promised parliament", Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said. May herself helped negotiate and approve.

The British leader has spoken by phone to eight European Union national leaders since late last week, including French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, without any sign of a breakthrough.

If Parliament throws out Ms.

Less than three weeks before Britain is due to leave the European Union on 29 March, Prime Minister Theresa May has failed to secure the changes to the divorce agreement she needs to gain the support of lawmakers who rejected it in a record rebellion in January.

Conservative lawmaker Nicky Morgan said Ms. Conservative lawmaker Steve Baker said ahead of Lidington's statement to parliament.

"It would be very hard for the Prime Minister to stay in office for very much longer", Ms. Morgan told the BBC.

Brexit-supporting lawmakers said they would look at what May achieves but that she would have to show a clear way for the backstop to end. May's deal and a no-deal departure. "There will be no new negotiations".

"It is now for the House of Commons to take an important set of decisions this week", Schinas said.
