May warns MPs that killing off Brexit deal would be a 'catastrophe'

"We ignore that and the will of the people at our peril".

Mr Hunt suggested that legally binding assurances from Brussels over the deal's controversial backstop arrangements should be enough to allay the fears of many MPs over the long-term impact of the Agreement.

Meanwhile, two of the biggest donors to the Leave campaign said they thought Brexit would eventually be abandoned by the Government and that the United Kingdom would stay in the EU.

In a significant shift of tone apparently created to win over hardline Brexiteers who have set their faces against Mrs May's deal, Mr Hunt warned that defeat next week would not necessarily provide MPs with the opportunity to choose their preferred version of Brexit. "That is something that we would regret for many, many generations".

Theresa May today warned MPs that killing off her Brexit deal in this week's Commons showdown would be a "catastrophe".

Admitting there are different views on what the future should look like, Mrs May says her deal "pulls together the huge variety of options into a Brexit that works for the whole of the United Kingdom". "I just can't see how it happens with that configuration of Parliament".

The Brexiteer said the millions who voted for Brexit would feel "cheated" if the United Kingdom did not exit the EU.

However, about 600,000 New Yorkers remain without insurance because they do not or cannot enroll, according to City Hall. Those proposals, along with those for universal health care and guaranteed paid leave are still only that - proposals.


The EU is adamant the legally binding 585-page withdrawal agreement can't be reopened, but EU officials are looking for diplomatic wording that could sway reluctant United Kingdom lawmakers.

Downing Street was preparing for a narrow defeat allowing Mrs May to renegotiate final tweaks to her deal with European Union leaders realising it could cross the finish line. "Instead of embarking on another fruitless effort of renegotiation, it is time to hand this crucial decision back to the people".

Meanwhile, James Starkie, a former Vote Leave campaigner and ex-adviser to Environment Secretary Michael Gove, has told the BBC that a no-deal Brexit could have an impact on food imports from Europe.

"I'll do what the right thing is, and the right thing for me is to make sure we don't crash out with no deal".

But Mrs May is still facing a massive defeat in the crunch vote on Tuesday - with hardline Remainers and Brexiteers mobilising in a bid to thwart her plans.

The Prime Minister said failing to deliver what the public voted for in the referendum would be "unforgivable" and undermine democracy. "Projectfear? Project terror? Extremism more likely if we get failed Brexit which leads to lower living standards and less money for services".
