Brexit: PM Theresa May 'very unlikely' to win vote

Brexit: PM Theresa May 'very unlikely' to win vote

Hunt continued: "I think she [Mrs May] will find a way to get this deal through Parliament and think that is what the British people would want".

May was forced to postpone in December a key vote on the Brexit plan she has agreed with other European Union leaders in the face of deep opposition from within her own Conservative Party and other groups in parliament.

Chuka Umunna, the Labour MP who has led calls for a second Brexit referendum, said that would be a breach of constitutional convention.

Clarke, a former chancellor, said Brexit should be delayed to prevent a no-deal situation.

He said: "The time for prevarication and pussyfooting around on Brexit has long passed - we must now give voice to the clear majority of people who are demanding a final say".

He said: 'If Parliament rejects the Prime Minister's bad deal the only sensible course of action is to withdraw Article 50 immediately.

The vote was initially planned for last month but was postponed in the face of an expected defeat of up to 200 MPs.

"The only way to both honour the result of the referendum and protect jobs and security is by backing the deal that is on the table", she wrote. May's deal and 76% said warnings over the risks of disruption in the event of a no-deal were "exaggerated or invented".

Instead, he called for Brexit to be delayed until a way forward can be found.

Biandudi was there to use the rest room and buy herself a drink, while her daughter was waiting in drive through, for her parcel. When he asked her for a straw , he was told that plastic straws are not available anymore at which Taylor began to scream.


"If some of those MPs can be persuaded to back the Prime Minister's deal, it won't be because they've come under pressure to do so from their local party members over the Christmas break".

Theresa May says the United Kingdom will be in "unchartered territory" if her deal fails to go through Parliament, as she insists the Brexit vote will go ahead this month.

Mrs May promised further measures specific to Northern Ireland and a greater role for Parliament, and said "we are still working on" getting extra assurances from Brussels as part of her drive to secure support for the deal.

He said Labour's plan remained to push for a general election if Mrs May's deal was rejected, and "we would set out what we would seek to negotiate in Europe to try and deliver".

Brexiteer Sir John told BBC Radio 4's Today programme he could not support the deal, and added: "Many of us in the country just want to move on and talk about something else, we want to be out and we know it will work just fine".

His comments come after Conservative MP Ken Clarke called for the government to revoke Article 50 to give the United Kingdom more time to negotiate Brexit.

Iain Duncan Smith has said not a single job would be lost in a hard Brexit, insisting concerns fears of leaving with no deal are "nonsense".

"I certainly hope that the chances of the deal going through have improved".
