Once again, Theresa May is putting off the day of reckoning.

"The Prime Minister is pretending there is progress in the talks". British lawmakers overwhelmingly rejected the deal, agreed in November, in a vote last month, leaving Britain on course for an abrupt Brexit with no transition period to minimise expected economic disruption.

But the premier is now promising MPs they'll have another chance to do that by February 27. She also ruled out requesting the European Union to extend the March 29 deadline, although she acknowledged there was little time left to ratify an agreement.

But, seemingly buoyed by her victory, the PM appeared to be back to her old ways.

"The talks are at a crucial stage", May added.

Mrs May was on her feet for more than two hours in the House of Commons today taking questions after her government has been forced to hold regular ministerial statements and debates.

"If the meaningful vote has not happened, so in other words things have not concluded, then parliament would have that further opportunity by no later than 27 February", he said.

"People are exhausted of Carney's gloomy, inaccurate, anti-Brexit predictions", said Richard Tice, co-chairman of campaign group Leave Means Leave.

Some believe the best chances of forcing a vote sooner than March lie with Labour.

They have also signed a deal to preserve the rights of some 43,000 British nationals living in Switzerland and the 35,000 Swiss residing in Britain after Brexit.

"We will wait and see what the Government comes back with on Thursday, but we have got to put a hard stop to this running down of the clock", he said.

But that will only work if enough Tory Remainers are ready to vote with them. But it would prevent Britain from making its own trade deals after Brexit.

Four weeks after she saw her agreement with the bloc defeated by the biggest margin in modern Parliamentary history, May met with MPs from across the political divide Monday as she continued to seek a deal that can win a majority in the House of Commons.
