Theresa May considering amending Good Friday deal to break Brexit impasse

Then British Prime Minister John Major leaving No.10 Downing Street in London Minister says UK faces 'political tsunami' if Brexit halted
Pablo Mccormick | 21 January, 2019, 09:56

Starmer said there was a roadblock in the way of a solution to the Brexit crisis, "and that roadblock is the prime minister".

Downing Street insisted that cross-party talks were continuing.

But with Labour refusing to take part until Mrs May rules out leaving without a deal, some MPs fear those talks will change little and instead have said they will launch attempts next week to force the government to change course.

Time is running out for parliamentary agreement on Brexit, Britain's biggest shift in foreign and trade policy in more than 40 years, but so far there is little that unites a divided parliament beyond its rejection of May's deal that envisages close economic ties with the European Union, at least in the medium term.

With just weeks to go before the United Kingdom is due to leave the EU, Prime Minister Theresa May will return to Parliament today to set out how she plans to try to break the Brexit deadlock after her deal was rejected.

Following the failed Brexit deal vote, which MPs voted by 432 votes to 202, the PM blamed Jeremy Corbyn, for the collapse of the cross-party approach.

Bush calls for an end to the shutdown through pizza deliveries
The White House said Friday that Trump will make an announcement Saturday afternoon regarding the situation. Bush uploaded an Instagram photo showing him greeting his employees with a handful of stacked pizza boxes.

"What we are now getting are some of those who were always absolutely opposed to the result of the referendum trying to hijack Brexit and in effect steal the result from the people".

A second would enable backbenchers to choose to debate and vote on Brexit issues, one day a week - breaking the convention that the government controls the parliamentary timetable.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel - who is taking a more flexible approach on the timing of any extension - indicated on Saturday that she wants to help Britain secure an orderly exit.

Earlier, Trade Minister Liam Fox said Parliament can not be allowed to hijack Brexit in a warning to lawmakers who want to take more control over Britain's departure from the European Union. Brexiteers within the Tory ranks may then be tempted to hold their noses and wave through the Prime Minister's divorce deal.

Britain could not unilaterally pull out of the backstop.

Meanwhile, The Sunday Times reported that plans to seek a bilateral treaty with the Irish government as a way to remove the contentious backstop arrangement.

Trump lashes out at Pelosi over rejected government shutdown proposal
Pelosi also called out the proposal's stance on DACA and TPS recipients, saying a permanent solution was needed instead. Second, I cannot support the proposed offer as reported and do not believe it can pass the Senate.

"Ultimately what people really want is stability and certainty - to know where they're going to go and what's going to happen on the 29th of March", she said in an interview with Ridge.

But as one Cabinet source pointed out last week, there is no majority for any of these Brexit end games so consensus and compromise must be hammered out. The DUP are Northern Ireland's biggest party.

Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said Sunday that he and Prime Minister Leo Varadkar were in no mood to support alterations to the withdrawal agreement (WA) or the backstop.

"The only way of doing that it seems to me is to get us into a place where we are preparing for that final say referendum that has to take place".

Neale Richmond, a member of Ireland's governing Fine Gael party and chairman of the upper house of Parliament's Brexit committee, said the Good Friday Agreement can not be renegotiated lightly.

"That includes continued support for the EU/UK agreed WA in full, including the backstop as negotiated".
