Scotts Against Brexit Deal: Scottish Parties Uniting Against Divorce from the EU

Scotts Against Brexit Deal: Scottish Parties Uniting Against Divorce from the EU

The European Union have been adamant this is a take-it-or-leave-it deal and can not be renegotiated.

Mrs May said that separate analyses produced by Whitehall officials and the Bank of England this week each showed that the agreement she reached in Brussels is "the best deal that honours the result of the referendum".

"If they can not look their constituents in the eye and say it is, they must vote this deal down and then hand the decision back to the people".

In a speech in Bristol, the trade secretary said that MPs needed to look beyond their current divisions and get on with delivering Brexit so that the UK's "independent trading future" can begin.

Dr Fox is expected to say: "The withdrawal agreement and the political declaration will not please everyone, and we have had some tough choices to make".

Which is pretty much why every one of her MPs is convinced she has a Plan B. And they will vote to reject her Brexit deal confident they are right about that. The person she most wants to sell the deal to is U.S. President Donald Trump because a trans-Atlantic trade deal has been held up as one of the greatest prizes of Brexit.

"The backstop and the proposed treaty keep the whole of the United Kingdom in the customs union, which allows the EU to set tax rates, with Northern Ireland in the single market too".

The ultimate gamble for the Prime Minister, who has to hope that voters will, via the ballot box, back her plan.

May urged British lawmakers to remember that the country voted for Brexit, and she insisted that the public wanted government to get on with it.

If MPs reject the deal, a number of things could happen - including leaving with no deal, an attempt to renegotiate or a general election.

He also warned that the vote could be a "humiliating defeat" for the ruling Tory Party, especially with numerous backbenchers publicly expressing their opposition and threatening to vote against it in parliament.

"As Minister with the responsibility for space technology I have seen first-hand the European Union stack the deck against us time and time again, even while the ink was drying on the transition deal".

Asked if he thought the whole Cabinet would back the deal in the Commons, Dr Fox told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "I think members of the Cabinet will vote for the deal".

But the president has criticized her agreement with the European Union and said it could hamper attempts to broker a deal.

But hinting at potential further resignations from Mrs May's top team over Brexit, he added: "Members of the Cabinet who don't vote for the deal won't be members of the Cabinet".

The Democratic Unionist party, which has a confidence and supply deal with the governing Tories, has suggested that it will not support Mrs May's plan.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, arch-Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg accused the Government of an effort to "frighten and to gull (people) into acquiescing to a non-Brexit Brexit".
