British parliament to vote on whether to leave EU without a deal

  • Trump criticizes Britain's May over handling of Brexit

If "no deal" is off the table, 14 March will see British lawmakers vote for the delay of Brexit.

"Obviously she can't control all MPs in the House of Commons". Members of Parliament (MPs) voted against the deal by 391 votes to 242 - a majority of 149 votes - in yet another humiliating defeat for the prime minister over Brexit.

The two-page report published by the attorney general said the UK could still not extract itself from the terms of the divorce deal unilaterally, a key demand of pro-Brexit British politicians.In a written legal opinion piece, Cox said that if UK-EU negotiations became stalled through "intractable differences", Britain would have "no internationally lawful means of exiting the Protocol's arrangements, save by agreement".

And Education Minister Nadhim Zahawi said it would be "consistent for all of us in Government to leave no-deal on".

Labour said allowing a free vote on no-deal showed Mrs May had "given up any pretence of leading the country".

A spokesman for European Council President Donald Tusk, representing EU governments, said Britain would have to provide a "credible justification" for any request for a delay. Speaking to Sky News, Mr Barclay said: "The Government set out a clear process".

In Strasbourg late last night, Juncker referred to the first defeat of May's plans back in January and warned: "In politics sometimes you get a second chance, it's what you do with the second chance that counts, because there will be no third chance.it is this deal or Brexit might not happen at all".

It means the world's fifth largest economy could leave the European Union without a deal; there could be an extension to the March 29 divorce date which is enshrined in law; May could hold a snap election or try a third time to get her deal passed; or a another referendum on the issue is also possible.

But although she managed to convince about 40 Tory MPs to change their mind, it was not almost enough to overturn the historic 230 vote defeat she suffered on the same deal in January.

Non-residents scoop up pricey properties in B.C
Homes owned only by non-residents of Canada accounted for 2 per cent of residential properties in Ontario. Just over 10 per cent of B.C. condos are owned by non-residents, and 6.2 per cent of all property types.

After MPs first rejected the 585-page Brexit deal in January, May promised changes to its hated backstop plan, an arrangement meant to keep open the border with Ireland.

She has spent two years trying to keep no-deal on the table.

What isn't clear is how the prime minister actually intends to dig herself out of this terrible political hole.

"May is now in a deep crisis, with Tory MPs and even some ministers speculating how long she can last in Downing Street", Mujtaba Rahman, managing director at Eurasia Group, said.

May said this will be a free vote, meaning she will not whip her party into voting to support her.

Some, such as former foreign secretary Boris Johnson argue a no-deal is the best option. According to Cox, May's Brexit plans reduced the risk of the United Kingdom being indefinitely trapped in the customs union but didn't eliminate the legal risk. "That's why MPs must reject this deal tomorrow".

In the auto sector, the government said carmakers reliant on European Union supply chains would not face additional tariffs for vehicle parts imported from the European Union but tariffs would apply on imported cars.

The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, has said the current impasse "can only be solved in the UK" and MPs must decide what they want rather than what they don't.
