May claims to secure last-minute changes to her Brexit deal

14 Марта 2019

However, if MPs vote no to her deal it will mean another vote this time on whether to leave the European Union without a deal. And will it be enough to convince the divided House of Commons to support Theresa May's deal?

LONDON, March 12 (Xinhua) - British Attorney General Geoffrey Cox said on Tuesday that the newly secured legally binding changes to the Brexit deal will "reduce the risk" of his country being indefinitely and involuntarily held in the Irish backstop.

"We will measure this latest text against the Brady amendment and the commitments made by the prime minister on 29 January".

During the joint conference with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, May clearly stated that "MPs were clear that legal changes were needed to the backstop".

Currency expert Stafford-Taylor added: "However, if parliament vote against May's deal there will be a fresh vote to consider tomorrow which could further influence to the pound's movement. Today we have secured legal changes". But Tuesday's vote in the British Parliament is really very important, as what comes next will make or break Brexit-and arguably the United Kingdom. It is legally binding.

On Tuesday morning the DUP spokesman Sammy Wilson said the agreement "seems to fall short" of the prime minister's own problems but would not say how the party would act saying they wanted to consult and take advice on the matter.

"She said she had been advised this letter would have legal force in worldwide law".

If that happens, MPs will vote on Thursday on extending article 50 which triggered the UK's exit process from the EU.

If Parliament approves the measure, the fears of a no-deal Brexit are over.

"The backstop is an insurance policy, nothing more, nothing less". Afterward, hard-core Brexit supporters in May's Conservative Party and the prime minister's allies in Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party both said they could not support the deal.

Others close to the ERG believe that the group will only agree to support May's deal and weaker concessions than they would like if she promises to name a date for her departure.

"Since her Brexit deal was so overwhelmingly rejected, the prime minister has recklessly run down the clock, failed to effectively negotiate with the European Union and refused to find common ground for a deal Parliament could support".

However, May could come back with another attempt at a meaningful vote at some point over the course of the week, especially if she only loses by a narrow amount.

Pro-Brexit politicians in May's Tory party insist that the plan - known as the backstop - threatens to trap the United Kingdom inside the EU's trade regime forever, because it would be impossible for Britain to leave.

Earlier on Monday, talks were said by government sources to be deadlocked and May was locked away in Downing Street for much of the day, apart from a brief appearance to give a bible reading at a service for Commonwealth Day.
