Juncker rules out giving May anything more than ‘clarifications’ over Brexit deal

"Machiavellian, I would say".

"I'll do what the right thing is, and the right thing for me is to make sure we don't crash out with no deal". You know, "how do we keep the United Kingdom in this awful institution?" This is a cunning plan.

That Mrs May has to come up with a Plan B sooner rather than later is, by the way, thanks to a massive row this week between John Bercow (the Speaker of the House of Commons) on one side and the government and pro-Brexit MPs on the other. They will turn it down and then all the Remainers will take over.

Many pro-Brexit MPs in Mrs May's Conservative Party feel the Treaty leaves the United Kingdom too close to the European Union, while most pro-Remain Conservatives and all the opposition parties feel the Declaration is far too vague.

In this context, he referred to former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who he claims was betrayed by "many politicians" but supported by ordinary Britons during World War Two.

A Labour spokesman, while not confirming a vote on Tuesday, said that while the timing of a no-confidence vote had not been fixed, MPs had been told to be ready. The MPs may not be but the people are.

Google discontinues Chromecast Audio
Google is killing Chromecast Audio , a smart accessory for non-smart speakers that it had launched in 2015 . According to the Google employee, the product is now in a discontinued state and no longer in production.

The source said they expected a second referendum to have around 180 backers by the end of next week and Norway to have 50-60, but acknowledged that Norway has the "surge capacity" to pick up momentum. But even if she suffered a loss of closer to 200, which many Tories fear could be the case, Conservative MPs and ministers still expect her to stagger on and seek to bring an improved offer back to the Commons for a further vote within weeks.

"And every effort I think needs to be made between now and Tuesday, Tuesday afternoon perhaps, to ensure this important issue can be resolved satisfactorily".

A senior and well-placed source predicted there would also be "furious lobbying of MPs", with 10-15,000 voters being encouraged by People's Vote campaigners to target MPs in 100 key seats, including key Tories, Labour waverers and potential opposition supporters of May's deal, like Caroline Flint and Gareth Snell.

Brexit could be cancelled if MPs vote down the deal reached with Brussels, the foreign secretary has warned.

Pressed for a third time by interviewer Justin Webb on whether she would quit if Mrs May went for the no-deal option, Ms Rudd cut him short by saying: "Thank you very much, Justin". One senior figure said that a "legally copper-bottomed" plan had already been drawn up to "give parliament control of the Brexit negotiation and stop a no-deal Brexit" should May's deal be voted down.

Senior shadow cabinet figures say any further delay in tabling a no-confidence motion will make that position untenable, as there will be insufficient time before Britain's exit from the European Union on 29 March to hold an election.
