UK Parliament votes to create financial obstacle to a 'no-deal' Brexit

When the Prime Minister made a decision to delay the meaningful vote on her Brexit deal by a month because she was facing a historic defeat, with more than 100 Tories ready to vote it down, she pledged to gain legally binding assurances from the EU.

Several Conservative MPs accused Bercow of being biased, and there was speculation of an attempt to remove him from his post.

A week ahead of a crucial vote in Parliament, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Sunday (6 January) that "the danger there is actually we end up with no Brexit at all".

Mr Grieve's amendment was tabled against a Government motion detailing the timetable for the Brexit deal debate, which Tory MPs argued was "unamendable".

May's hands as she hopes a fractured Parliament will leave her deal as the only viable option.

Sir Oliver Letwin, a former minister in David Cameron's government who has never previously rebelled over Brexit, said that it was a signal to hard Brexit supporters that MPs would block a "no deal" scenario.

Markets buoyed by optimism over US-China trade talks
Mr Ross said there was a "very good chance" of reaching an agreement, although monitoring compliance would present a challenge. Global financial markets retreated late past year , largely over concerns about the economic impact of a protracted trade war.

That deal includes a 585-page withdrawal agreement that outlines the terms of Britain's departure, and a 26-page declaration that sets out a framework for future negotiations on a broad agreement covering trade and a host of other issues.

The setback for the government came after a day in which senior ministers spoke out about the risks of exiting the European Union without any form of withdrawal agreement.

Responding to the vote, Brexit minister Stephen Barclay told parliament it was the government's intention to act quickly if it lost Tuesday's vote.

Earlier, in Prime Minister's Questions, Jeremy Corbyn urged Mrs May to accept the will of the House as expressed in Tuesday's vote and rule out a no-deal Brexit.

He said: "That sticker on the subject of Brexit happens to be affixed to or in the windscreen of my wife's auto, and I'm sure he wouldn't suggest for one moment that a wife is somehow the property or chattel of her husband. These discussions have shown that further clarification over the backstop is possible and those talks will continue over the next few days", May said.

The government published pledges offering Northern Ireland a "strong voice and role in any decision to bring the backstop into effect".

Some probably didn't need a bounce, like Olivia Colman's win for "The Favourite ", or " Shallow " winning best original song . Elsewhere, Glenn Close won for "The Wife " over presumed favorite Lady Gaga in "A Star is Born ".

The suggestions did little to win over the DUP. Wilson, one of 10 DUP lawmakers propping up May's minority government, described her deal as "ruinous".

Dame Caroline, who organised the letter with Labour MP Jack Dromey, told the Press Association: "She showed that she understands the damage that would be caused if the United Kingdom did leave the European Union without a deal - she's not prepared to rule that out at this stage because of course in her view we can avoid all that if we support her agreement".

"I don't think that the British public are served by fantasies about magical alternative deals that are somehow going to sort of spring out of a cupboard in Brussels", Lidington told the BBC.

May pulled a vote on the deal last month, admitting it would be defeated, and promised to seek "legal and political assurances" from the EU.

UK Brexit minister Martin Callanan ruled out that prospect and said May would update MPs on Wednesday about the assurances over the backstop she is seeking from the EU.
