Tory Minister George Eustice Quits Over 'Final Humiliation' Of Brexit Delay

Open this

The rebel ministers are all backing a proposed parliamentary amendment that would force May to set a new Brexit date if she fails to get better terms on the disputed issue of the Irish border.

Brexit no deal or delay?

The briefing made to the ambassadors of the EU's 27 remaining countries said she could ask for a "short and technical extension" even if her deal finally wins the support of the House of Commons.

Mr Eustice, who backed leave in the 2016 referendum, said he would vote for Mrs May's deal when it comes back before MPs.

"The agreement with Eurotunnel secures the government's additional freight capacity, helping ensure that the NHS has essential medicines in the event of a no-deal Brexit", said Transport Secretary Chris Grayling.

The DfT stated in the documents outlining the agreements that an "unforeseeable" situation of "extreme urgency" meant there was no time for the contracts to be put out to tender as normally done with public procurement, Britain's public broadcaster BBC reported.

Ireland's deputy prime minister said Thursday that the European Union wants to work with Britain to ensure there is a Brexit deal, as Irish drivers were warned they will need new paperwork to cross the now invisible border to Northern Ireland if the United Kingdom leaves the bloc without an agreement. But opponents have argued that a USA trade deal would mean opening up Britain to changes in standards including accepting chlorine-treated chicken and genetically modified crops.

Her effective number two David Lidington said May and her cabinet would hold a "free debate" about her next steps in Britain's biggest political crisis in a generation.

Corbyn, who voted against membership in 1975 and gave only reluctant backing to the 2016 campaign to remain in the European Union, on Wednesday gave ambiguous backing for another referendum, saying he would push for one alongside a national election.

Britain's bumpy journey out of the European Union took a major turn Tuesday, as Prime Minister Theresa May handed the steering wheel to Parliament, giving lawmakers the power to slam on the brakes and divert Britain away from a disruptive and chaotic Brexit.

"Today, we need above all a decision, it's more important than extra time", Barnier told a news conference in Vienna, adding that the Brexit process stood at a "grave moment".

The opposition Labour party by contrast wants a new customs union with the bloc after Brexit, but its plan was defeated by 323 to 240 on Wednesday evening.

Amid fears of further defections from within its ranks, the Labour Party announced earlier this week that it would back a second referendum.

"This is not a functioning government, it is the Tory party at war with itself under a Prime Minister who can't give leadership", Mr Blackford said.

"We don't need more time: what we need most of all is a decision", French President Emmanuel Macron said after meeting German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Paris.
