United Kingdom might need to seek a short extension to Brexit transition: May

United Kingdom might need to seek a short extension to Brexit transition: May

The new time system is not due to come into force until after March next year - and will require the support of all European Union countries and the support of MEPs, but with the United Kingdom likely to have a transition period - if a deal is agreed - it could also end up having to adopt the new "flat time" as well.

That's because they believe this will create the best conditions for another Brexit referendum.

"The end is in sight in terms of a good deal - the prize we want - a good deal with the European Union and I think colleagues should wait and see what that looks like".

Thousands of protesters took to the streets of London over the weekend in support of the vote on the Brexit deal.

Theresa May will step in front of MPs, reporting on her Brexit talks achievements, having faced harsh rhetoric and bitter bickering from hard-core Brexiteers within her party in the past few days.

Former Secretary of State Sigmar Gabriel waded into the deadlocked Brexit negotiations by suggesting Prime Minister Theresa May's answer to stalled talks would be to give Remainers a second vote.

There are 315 Conservative MPs.

Amid talk of a leadership challenge, criticism of May has grown increasingly intemperate.

Theresa May must clarify if the proposed extension to the Brexit transition period serves as an alternative to the EU's demand for a backstop, Sammy Wilson has said.

LONDON - Theresa May will begin another risky week pleading with her MPs for more time to complete Brexit negotiations after Cabinet ministers revolted further against plans in a late-night phone call on Sunday. Brussels is now considering this but has not been prepared to accept the proposal so far.

Mr Gabriel outlined a handful of freakish points he believed made the Brexit ballot illegitimate, such as how teenage Britons too young to vote in the June 2016 referendum would now - according to him - nearly certainly vote Remain in a second referendum.

"It's a curious conflation of interests and thinking from diametrically opposed viewpoints", Tannock told BI.

"[The ERG] want the deal rejected because they think it will topple May and put someone even harder in place", he said.

An estimated 700,000 protesters, led by young voters, marched through London on Saturday. Tory MPs including Anna Soubry, Sarah Wollaston and Dr Philip Lee are already supporters of the campaign, plus a host of Labour, Lib Dem and Green MPs.

There were "very real, practical and diplomatic obstacles" to parliament amending the deal: by the time the parliament voted there would be no time to re-enter negotiations.

She also told the plenary meeting of the assembly the Government remained committed to last December's joint report with the EU.

"A number of MEPs I have spoken to who fully understand that their governments must tow the line and be as tough as possible, not to blink", he said.

If 48 MPs submit a letter of no-confidence to Sir Graham Brady, the chairman of the 1922 backbench committee, he would be required to call a vote of no confidence, a mechanism by which the party could ultimately force a replacement in leadership.
