May takes personal charge of UK's Brexit negotiations

May takes personal charge of UK's Brexit negotiations

Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab has promised to ensure that "there is adequate food supply" if the United Kingdom plummets out of the European Union without reaching a deal.

May said DExEU will continue to lead on all of the government's preparations for Brexit: domestic preparations in both a deal and a no-deal scenario, all of the necessary legislation, and preparations for the negotiations to implement the detail of the Future Framework.

Speaking during a visit to Berlin, Germany, the Cabinet minister appealed directly to German leaders, warning them of the dangers of the United Kingdom and European Union stumbling into a no deal situation.

Another close aide, David Lidington, will go to France later this month and the new foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, is in Germany on Monday to meet with his counterpart Heiko Maas.

Downing Street confirmed that it will be Mr Raab who travels regularly to Brussels for direct talks with European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier.

"I can't remember legislation which has needed such great revision and amendment before the relevant parts have even come into force", he told MPs.

The bill would create a financial authority to manage "divorce" payments, which will total between £35bn and £39bn, to the EU.

Amid a growing backlash, 38 percent of respondents said they would back a new right-wing party committed to Brexit.

In her statement, the prime minister said that it was "essential that in navigating the UK's exit from the European Union, the government is organised in the most effective way". She only narrowly won a series of votes on Brexit in parliament last week.

After a chaotic two weeks that have seen senior ministers quit her government and rebellions from both wings of the ruling party, premier Theresa May faces further pressure after a poll for The Sunday Times showed that the public was also deeply opposed to her strategy.

McGuinness, an EPP group member, said, "I think the British Prime Minister set out red lines too early on and too deeply".

Britain's negotiating team will be in Brussels Wednesday to discuss the future relationship, the border issue between Northern Ireland and Ireland and remaining issues on the withdrawal agreement.

Labour said Mr Raab had been "sidelined" after just 15 days in the job, while the Leave Means Leave campaign said Mr Robbins had "seized control" of the process, guaranteeing that Brexit would be "in name only".
