Les députés britanniques voteront le 15 janvier sur l'accord de Brexit, a déclaré mardi un porte-parole de Downing Street.

La Première ministre conservatrice Theresa May continue à essayer d'obtenir de l'UE des "assurances" supplémentaires. Cette disposition vise à empêcher le retour d'une frontière physique entre la République d'Irlande et la province britannique d'Irlande du Nord, en créant un " territoire douanier unique " qui engloberait l'UE et le Royaume-Uni, avec un alignement plus poussé pour l'Irlande du Nord, en cas d'échec des négociations sur la future relation commerciale entre le Royaume-Uni et l'UE. Il a assuré qu'il y avait des "contacts étroits" pour savoir "si une série supplémentaire de garanties écrites, explications et assurances pourraient faire la différence".

"Nous ne voulons pas piéger le Royaume-Uni dans quoi que ce soit".

La cheffe du gouvernement avait donné des gages aux députés pour tenter de les convaincre d'adopter l'accord de sortie de l'UE, avant un vote décisif le 15 janvier.

" Ce vote est une étape décisive pour éviter un Brexit sans accord".

La dirigeante a mis en garde dimanche sur la BBC contre les conséquences imprévisibles que pourrait avoir un rejet de l'accord. Les seules alternatives, a-t-elle prévenu, sont un Brexit sans accord ou pas de Brexit du tout.

Des responsables européens et britanniques discutent d'un éventuel report de la date officielle de la sortie du Royaume-Uni de l'Union européenne par crainte que l'accord de Brexit ne soit pas approuvé à temps par le Parlement britannique, rapporte mardi le Daily Telegraph.

Plusieurs sources européennes ont indiqué au quotidien que les autorités britanniques " tâtaient le terrain " pour demander une éventuelle extension de l'article 50 du Traité de l'UE, qui régit le départ d'un État membre.

"Il est clair que tout le monde a en tête que cette possibilité existe", a dit à l'AFP une source diplomatique européenne, tout en avertissant que "c'est une option très hypothétique et non le scénario privilégié par qui que ce soit".

Le chef de file de la droite au Parlement européen (PPE), l'Allemand Manfred Weber, s'est, lui, refusé à envisager un report du Brexit. "L'offre est claire. La date est fixée", a-t-il déclaré à l'AFP. Alors que Theresa May n'a cessé d'agiter l'épouvantail d'un "no deal" pour forcer le vote des députés dans son sens, ces derniers viennent clairement de reprendre la main. Ils sont également un signe supplémentaire des divisions sur le Brexit, qui ont conduit l'exécutif à essuyer deux défaites cuisantes à la Chambre des communes cette semaine, mauvais présage pour le vote sur l'accord de divorce prévu mardi, qui mécontente tant les Brexiters que les europhiles.

Ils pointent du doigt des individus "liés à l'extrême droite" se "livrant de plus en plus à des actes d'intimidation, potentiellement criminels, envers des députés, des journalistes, des militants".
