Brexit: Theresa May Begging MPs for More Time to Amend Her 'Deal'

Prime Minister Theresa May will pledge this week to give parliament another chance to voice their opinions on Brexit by February 27 as she tries to buy more time to negotiate a new deal with the European Union.

He said: "The Government will commit that if the meaningful vote, in other words the deal coming back, has not happened by 27 February then we would allow a further motion - votable in Parliament - to take place to give that sense of assurance as to the process moving forward as well in parallel".

As the clock ticks down to Britain's scheduled exit on March 29, May is trying to persuade the European Union to change a deal that was agreed between London and Brussels late previous year but overwhelmingly rejected by parliament in January.

"No one could responsibly propose (a no-deal Brexit)".

But there is no commitment to hold a binding vote on the deal itself by the end of the month.

May wants to win over lawmakers in her Conservative Party with changes relating to the Northern Irish border, but the EU has refused to reopen that part of the deal and instead wants May to pursue a compromise with the main opposition Labour Party by agreeing closer UK-EU ties.

"It's this blinkered approach that's got us to where we are, with her never wanting to see where the real majority is in parliament".

Mr Corbyn said that without an election "we will keep all options on the table - as agreed in our conference motion - including the option of a public vote".

Brexit minister Stephen Barclay will meet European Union negotiator Michel Barnier on Monday to discuss changes to the part of the exit deal relating to the "backstop", an insurance policy against the return of a hard border between European Union member Ireland and British-ruled Northern Ireland. "There needs to be a day when Parliament says that's it, enough is enough".

It comes as shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer told The Sunday Times that Labour already plans to force another vote on the deal, accusing Mrs May of "running down the clock" and only offering MPs a "binary choice".

Asked if she could stay in office if the Government backed a customs union she said: "I absolutely do not think that should be our policy".
