May seeks more time for Brexit talks

British PM Theresa May is still trying to secure a Brexit plan which her MPs can agree

"We believed in him because we believed he would offer us a brighter future".

Labour lawmaker Yvette Cooper, one of the leading campaigners against Brexit without a deal, unveiled a new plan to ensure parliament has a chance to vote on ruling out a no-deal scenario.

Pro-Brexit Tory MPs also pressed Ms. These include an extra legal document that will probably make a binding commitment to try to end the contentious Irish backstop as soon as possible.

Northern Ireland has been without a functioning devolved government since January 2017, when power sharing collapsed due to a row over a botched renewable energy scheme. "But if you're asking me whether no deal remains on the table, the answer is yes".

The UK government has said the conditions have not yet been met to facilitate a border poll.

Responding to loose-lipped Robbins, UKIP leader Gerrard Batten said Wednesday morning: "Contrary to what Mrs May says, the choice is the "Not Really Leaving Deal", or we just don't leave on March 29th".

Chief EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said Monday that "something has to give" on the British side to secure an orderly Brexit.

"There is no hope of that", he said.

The EU has remained adamant that no changes would be made to the withdrawal agreement, which together with the political declaration is part of the deal the two sides negotiated over 18 painstaking months. European Union leaders have repeatedly said it would not be possible to replace the backstop as it is required to ensure no hard border between the nations.

It is the insurance policy to maintain an open border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland unless and until another solution is found.

Many people are concerned that the return of such checks would put the peace process at risk.

The EU is reluctant to make any gestures towards the United Kingdom on the backstop, not only because of maintaining peace in Northern Ireland and preventing a backdoor into the EU's single market, but also because the bloc is not convinced that any EU concession would be enough for May get a majority she needs.

Last month, MPs backed an amendment in Parliament calling for "alternative arrangements" to replace the backstop.

It was an impressive though expected win for Davis, who needed two attempts Friday to hit the 130-pound super featherweight limit. Davis has had a troubled career to date under the tutelage of Mayweather and his self-titled promotion arm.

Pro-Brexit MPs in May's Conservative Party are unhappy particularly with a so-called backstop provision meant to keep the border with Ireland free-flowing.

Theresa May is planning to wait until the last moment before putting her Brexit deal to a vote in Parliament - and will then force British politicians to choose between her blueprint and a potentially very long delay.

As uncertainty around Brexit grows, a study by the IWH Institute in Germany revealed that if Britain leaves the European Union without a deal, it would put almost 6 lakh people around the world out of jobs.

His comments come after Theresa May set out plans to bypass Commons rules, in order to get a Brexit deal ratified in time.

But talks with European Union leaders in Brussels last week did nothing to unblock the impasse over the status of the backstop.

May is set to update parliament on her latest meetings in Brussels and Dublin aimed at securing a divorce agreement with the European Union, with Britain due to leave the bloc on March 29.
