How did YOUR MP vote in crucial Brexit decisions?

May has said she will hold another vote next week on her deal, although lawmakers have already rejected it twice.

May has essentially handed Brexit supporters an ultimatum - ratify her deal by Wednesday or face a long delay to Brexit that would open up the possibility that Britain never even leaves.

British lawmakers voted on Thursday night to allow the government to seek a delay for Britain's departure from the bloc.

But, asked about the possibility of a longer delay, Coveney said: "I think many European Union leaders will be very uncomfortable with a long extension".

Asked if MPs should back Mrs May in next week's vote on her EU Withdrawal Agreement, 57 per cent of Tory voters say they should, with 26 against, a margin of more than two to one in her favour.

Ministers met for a reportedly testy political meeting of Cabinet ahead of the votes, at which Mrs May was said to have berated four senior colleagues who defied the Tory whip earlier in the week to abstain in the no-deal vote.

A Downing Street spokeswoman said: "She has been working tirelessly to make a deal and she will continue to do that".

Schiff's comments echoed Pelosi's, who told The Washington Post recently, in the most unequivocal language yet, that she would not support impeachment because it wasn't worth the potential fallout.


Professor Iain Begg, of the European Institute and co-director of the Dahrendorf Forum at the London School of Economics and Political Science, said: "EU agreement is likely, but the EU side will want reassurance that the extension is for a objective, not just to permit further procrastination by the UK".

Attorney-general Geoffrey Cox said last-minute tweaks to the withdrawal agreement hammered out over two years by the United Kingdom and EU did not eliminate the risk that the United Kingdom could be trapped as a rule-taker in a customs union with the EU indefinitely, despite assurances from Prime Minister Theresa May.

Pro-Brexit lawmakers in May's Conservative Party have rejected her withdrawal deal-which lays out the terms of Britain's departure and the outline of the country's future relations with the European Union -because they think it keeps Britain too closely bound to the bloc's rules and regulations.

The UK Parliament turned down May's Brexit deal with Brussels in January, mainly due to differences over how trade would proceed between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has called for Ms.

He said the British government was "very focussed" on addressing the issue of the Irish backstop, an insurance policy that sets out what happens to the Irish border after Brexit.

The European Parliament's Brexit coordinator, Guy Verhofstadt, questioned why the E.U. should grant an extension if the British government is "not ready for a cross-party approach to break the current deadlock?"
