EU must increase pressure on Britain over Brexit - EU's Verhofstadt

Mrs May's spokesman said the government was still making preparations in the event of a no-deal divorce.

Sterling has borne the brunt of the ebbs and flows surrounding Prime Minister Theresa May's efforts to secure a Brexit deal, which Parliament rejected Tuesday.

Any delay in the Brexit process would require the unanimous approval of all 27 remaining European Union member states.

A handful of global channels operators, including Discovery and NBCUniversal, have begun shifting their European licenses out of Britain to other countries, such as Germany and the Netherlands, to ensure that the permits will still be valid throughout the rest of Europe after Brexit.

Some 127 leave-supporting Members of Parliament backed Amendment B, tabled by Conservative Lee Rowley, which sought to add to the motion to be voted on Thursday night that "the result of the 2016 European Union referendum should be respected and that a second European Union referendum would be divisive and expensive, and therefore should not take place".

Labour Party MPs abstained from the vote, arguing that now was not the right time to push for a public vote.

It's possible May might bring her plan to Parliament for yet a third vote next week if she is able to forge a compromise with the dissenters in her ranks. They want to put countries off the idea...

For the business community, including the entertainment industry, Thursday's vote does not change their immediate status but prolongs the uncertainty they have faced over the past three years, since the 2016 referendum in which a slim majority of British voters made a decision to pull their country out of the European Union. But members of the Tory Brexit group ERG have already refused to budge with MP Steve Baker saying "come what may we will continue to vote down the deal" while Mark Francois (left) insisting Mrs May's deal is "not a win - it's a lose", adding: "I was in the Army I wasn't trained to lose".

"Under no circumstances an extension in the dark!" tweeted the European Parliament's Brexit coordinator, Guy Verhofstadt. With the approaching deadline intensifying fears that Britain could leave the bloc without a deal - a move that economists say could spark economic turmoil - the U.K. Parliament voted Wednesday to rule out the possibility of a no-deal Brexit. Trump, who sees himself as a deal-maker, said he gave May advice but she didn't listen to him.

"I would be delighted if a consensus emerges behind the Prime Minister's deal over the next day or two". The EU, meanwhile, is reluctant to postpone Brexit beyond the late May elections for the European Parliament, because that would mean Britain taking part even as it prepares to leave.

Conservative lawmaker George Freeman suggested that May had been so damaged by Brexit that she should promise to quit to get her deal through.
