EU Trying to 'Rerun Old Arguments' - UK Brexit Minister

EU Trying to 'Rerun Old Arguments' - UK Brexit Minister

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Dodds and Baker, who is the deputy chairman of the pro-Brexit European Research Group (ERG) said any "extended uncertainty" around Brexit would be a "political calamity" and that the United Kingdom must leave the EU on the scheduled date of 29 March.

Thus far, the terms are unchanged from the withdrawal plan that received a shellacking in Parliament in January, losing by some 230 votes, a record rejection of a sitting government.

"They've got to recognize her deal isn't going to work, it doesn't get support, and will not get through parliament".

However, Northern Ireland would have to remain in the EU's trade orbit to prevent the need for any customs checks on the border with EU-member Ireland.

Otherwise, she said, Brexit might never happen and voters would be betrayed. "The British people who voted for this - and a large number of Remainers who didn't vote for it but still think it should be carried through because they believe in democracy - will see a government, a parliament, walking away from a question that they themselves put to the people".

"This is neither a realistic nor sensible proposal from Michel Barnier".

"If we don't do that on Tuesday then nobody quite knows where we will end up".

In a similar vein, exposing yourself to too much light at night can negatively impact your ability to get to sleep. It was also viewed as a way to get more people out doing things (namely spending money) during the week.

"With a very real deadline looming, now is not the time to rerun old arguments".

Scottish National Party leader Ian Blackford said Sunday that his party will put forward an amendment giving it the authority to hold another independence referendum if Britain does leave the EU. "In everything that followed there would be total uncertainty - that would be the only certainty", Hancock told Sky News.

Those arguments largely restated her well-worn line and have yet to convince lawmakers, especially eurosceptics who say her agreement does not offer a clean break with the European Union, as well as European Union supporters who want to maintain closer ties. Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said the British, not the European Union, had to compromise, and the decision to leave the bloc had been "a problem of their own creation".

If that happens, lawmakers will be able to vote on Wednesday and Thursday on whether they want to leave the bloc without a deal, or ask for a delay to Brexit beyond March 29 - all but wresting control of Brexit from the government.

David Martin, who has served as one of Scotland's representatives in the European Union parliament since 1984, previously said the Brexit vote had forced him to reconsider his opposition to Scottish independence.

The paper said they had warned her she would only get her deal through if she quit, leaving the path open for another PM to lead the next set of negotiations on the future trading relationship.

British foreign minister Jeremy Hunt warned on Sunday that Brexit is in peril if British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal is rejected.
