Scuppering Brexit would be 'catastrophic', May warns MPs

Scuppering Brexit would be 'catastrophic', May warns MPs

Writing in the Sunday Express ahead of a critical vote this week, May urged lawmakers to "do what is right for the country", because she said rejecting the will of the people would be "a catastrophic and unforgivable breach of trust in our democracy".

Last week the government was defeated twice in the Commons on Brexit votes.

Mr Grayling said there would be a "different tone" in British politics if the United Kingdom failed to leave the European Union, and predicted a "less tolerant society" and a "more nationalistic nation".

But he opened the door to the vote taking place before the end of the week as he said: "It is going to be soon, don't worry about that".

Ministers have warned the United Kingdom faces Brexit "paralysis" if this happens.

Corbyn declined to say whether a Labour manifesto for a snap election would promise to deliver Brexit, arguing that this would be up to party processes, but strongly indicated his preference would be to depart with a deal that keeps the United Kingdom in a customs union and with access to the single market.

The Observer newspaper reported Sunday that its lawmakers have been told it could be tabled "within hours" of that on Tuesday, with the confidence vote to be held the following day.

Labour's plan on Brexit, as decided at the party's conference, is to seek a general election first, and only if this can not happen then look at the possibility of a second Brexit referendum.

The Venezuelan President added that he hoped to receive the Prime Minister of St. It predicts that number will reach 5.3 million by the end of this year.


"You have delivered your instructions".

She continued: "When you turned out to vote in the referendum, you did so because you wanted your voice to be heard". Pressed on the timing he added: "We'll have the vote and then you'll see".

"Doing so would be a catastrophic and unforgivable breach of trust in our democracy", May said.

"So my message to Parliament this weekend is simple: It is time to forget the games and do what is right for our country".

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe warned on Thursday that the world did not want to see a disorderly Brexit and that he fully supported May's withdrawal deal.

- It emerged that 14 military planners have been deployed to four key Whitehall departments to assist with no-deal planning, according to a Freedom of Information request by the Observer.

- More than 100 MEPs from 26 European Union member states signed a letter calling on the United Kingdom to "reconsider" the Brexit decision, saying the UK's departure will "weaken all of us". "We will do everything we can to prevent a no deal exit".

Mr Grayling also said: "I have not asked for military support for the operations in Kent - that will be handled by Highways England and Kent Police".
