UK PM May seeks to end Brexit stalemate after winning confidence vote

Nigel Farage submitted

"What's certain is that the scenario of a no-deal Brexit is more and more likely".

And a transcript of the call, obtained by the Daily Telegraph, recorded that the Chancellor said an amendment expected to be tabled by Tory backbenchers including Nick Boles on Monday could pave the way for Parliament to vote to "rescind" Article 50.

May has repeatedly refused to countenance another election and has warned that another referendum would be corrosive as it would undermine faith in democracy among the 17.4 million people who voted to leave the European Union in the 2016 referendum.

Jeremy Corbyn was in Hastings on Thursday to give a speech about Brexit and the Labour Party's plans for the future.

If a way forward emerges, May could then go back to the European Union and seek changes to her deal.

With the clock ticking down to March 29, the date set in law for Brexit, the United Kingdom is gripped by the deepest political crisis in half a century as it grapples with how, or even whether, to exit the European project it joined in 1973.

He concluded his letter with pitching Labour's alternative plan for Brexit, including a single market deal and a UK-EU customs union - something May has repeatedly ruled out. Further, many in Corbyn's party believe that Labour can not assemble a governing majority without reclaiming more rural districts, and thus, growing its pro-leave wing.

Faced with the deadlock, lawmakers from all parties are trying to wrest control of the Brexit process so that Parliament can direct planning for Britain's departure.

Tottenham star Kane expected out until March with ligament damage
Chris Waddle says the injury to Harry Kane is "devastating" for his former club Tottenham. On Jan. 24, Spurs will face Chelsea in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semifinal.


Deputy political editor Beth Rigby posted last night that Labour politicians are set to pile the pressure on Jeremy Corbyn to make a second referendum his Plan B if his vote of no confidence fails.

Defence Minister Mark Lancaster, in a statement to Parliament, announced an order to enable reservists to be called into permanent service in support of the Government's no-deal contingency plans.

Liberal Democrat armed forces spokesman Jamie Stone said the Conservatives have "made such a mess of Brexit" that "even soldiers are being put on standby".

Mr Gardiner said that neither Mr Corbyn nor his frontbench team were taking part in discussions with the Government while no-deal remained on the table. "Good luck to the representatives of the nation, who have to implement a thing which doesn't exist".

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. has gained securities business approval in the Netherlands, while Mizuho Financial Group Inc. has done the same in Germany.

France's parliament on Wednesday adopted a law allowing for emergency measures, including extra customs officers, to deal with a "no-deal" Brexit.

In shunning the Davos meeting, which she attended past year, May follows in the wake of Emmanuel Macron, under heavy domestic pressure driven by gilets jaunes protests, and Donald Trump, who cancelled his visit due to an ongoing government shutdown in Washington. The pound was up against the dollar early Wednesday and rose further after the no-confidence vote to $1.2880.
