May says she is "armed with fresh" Brexit mandate

May says she is

But he added that Brussels was prepared to re-examine the deal to make it "more ambitious" in terms of its post-Brexit relations with the UK.

Hunt said: "It is true that if we ended up approving a deal in the days before the 29 March, then we might need some extra time to pass critical legislation".

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip leave a church near Maidenhead, Britain February 3, 2019.

The head of government wrote in the newspaper: "I'm going to be armed with a fresh mandate, with new ideas and new determination, to agree to a pragmatic solution that provides the Brexit, the British people voted, and at the same time ensures that there is no hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland".

The UK is due to leave the European Union at 11:00 GMT on Friday 29 March, when the two-year time limit on withdrawal negotiations enforced by the Article 50 process expires.

Prime Minister wrote in the Sunday Telegraph that she would be battling for Britain and Northern Ireland in order to get rid of the agreement's unpopular backstop provision.

The Mail on Sunday reported that Downing Street has denied advisors are planning for a general election on 6 June.

Our political correspondent Chris Mason said that while Mrs May pledged to "go back to Brussels to secure a plan that Parliament can stand behind", the European Union remains publicly opposed to changing the backstop. "By a majority of 16, MPs said that, with changes to the Northern Ireland backstop, they would support the deal that I agreed with Brussels to take us out of the European Union".

May called an election at short notice in 2017 at which she lost her party's majority, leaving her reliant on a small Northern Irish party to govern.

Javid said: "You can have no hard border on the island of Ireland and you can use existing technology, it is perfectly possible".

But Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said there were "no credible alternative arrangements".

In the interview with the Funke media group, Maas repeated the EU's position that the withdrawal agreement thrashed out between Brussels and London, which was rejected by Britain's parliament last month, could not be renegotiated.
