"Unforgivable Breach Of Trust": British PM On Failure To Deliver Brexit

  • Anti-Brexit protesters outside Parliament as Jeremy Hunt warned that failing to pass Mrs May's deal could mean no Brexit

"I still think that passing this deal is the responsible thing to do".

United Kingdom data disappointed, indicating shrinking business activity amid Brexit uncertainty.

Mr Farage made the comments after it was revealed that Remainers are plotting to overturn Parliamentary protocol in efforts to stop the United Kingdom leaving on WTO terms should Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal be voted down on Tuesday - which is the most likely scenario.

A no-deal Brexit would be "catastrophic" for industry and trade, Corbyn told the BBC.

Former prime minister Sir John Major has said the United Kingdom must revoke Article 50 and cancel Brexit to avoid no-deal because "jumping off a cliff never has a happy ending". United Kingdom data released Friday was quite discouraging, as Industrial and Manufacturing Production fell sharply in November, while the total trade balance came in at £-3.920B with a larger-than-expected deficit.

"An election would take place what February-March time, clearly there is only a few weeks then between that and the leave date, there would have to be a time for those negotiations", he added.

Some commentators suggested the looming Article 50 deadline for the UK's exit from the European Union on 29 March would force MPs into accepting the deal, being faced with a no deal as the only alternative.

Mrs May, who postponed a vote in parliament on her deal in December after admitting she was set to lose it, said MPs must not let down the people who backed Brexit in a June 2016 referendum.

Asked about reports of a plot to take control of parliamentary business away from the Government, Barclay said: "What recent events have shown, with events over the last week with what happened on the legal advice where the Government was forced to act in a way it didn't want to, is the uncertainty in terms of what will happen in the House has increased".

The Sunday Times reported that senior MPs intend to try to change the rules of the House of Commons so they can wrest control of the legislative agenda from the Government.

She continued: "When you turned out to vote in the referendum, you did so because you wanted your voice to be heard".

Mrs May has warned of a "catastrophic" breach of trust if Brexit is thwarted.

In addition to recommending that MPs reject both a no-deal Brexit and the Prime Minister's deal, the letter states that the European Union should be asked to extend Article 50 beyond the current March 29 deadline, with a view to then supporting a new referendum on European Union membership.

This is too important for political game-playing and I urge Conservative MPs who back Brexit and others to back the deal.

Mr Russell also said that the views of the people of Scotland, the Scottish Parliament and Scottish Government should not be ignored.

He told Sky News's Sophy Ridge On Sunday he talks to Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson "quite regularly" about no-deal Brexit planning.
