Date Set for Theresa May’s Brexit Showdown With Hostile Parliament

The SNP leader repeated calls for the deal to be rejected and set out her support for a second referendum on Brexit at her official Bute House residence in Edinburgh yesterday as the Scottish Government published a withering report on Mrs May's plan.
"No Scottish Government with the interests of this and future generations at heart could possibly accept the deal on offer", Ms Sturgeon said.

He said: "It's no use us just brushing that off, saying "No, no, we can do a deal with America"; he's the President of the United States, and if he says it's going to be hard, then it certainly looks like it's going to be hard". And, I don't think they want that at all.

May secured agreement with the European Union on Sunday for a deal that will see Britain leaving the bloc with continued close trade ties, but the odds now look stacked against her getting it approved by a deeply divided British parliament.

"This is not a good deal and we need a better deal".

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has managed to get European Union leaders to sign off on her Brexit deal, but as it stands the draft withdrawal agreement is expected to cost the UK economy around £100 billion each year by 2030, according to new report by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR).

Addressing the Commons the day after returning from Brussels, Mrs May said: "I can say to the House with absolute certainty that there is not a better deal available".

Asked whether he would vote against the current deal, Fallon said: "As it stands at the moment, yes".

The National Institute of Economic and Social Research has said May's Brexit deal - which foresees Britain striking a trade agreement with the EU or remaining in a customs union - is likely to mean the economy will be 3.9 percent smaller by 2030 than if it stayed in the EU. Get Me Out Of Here!.

"What I think is important is that people are able to see the issues around this plan". And that wouldn't be a good thing.

"We hear anecdotal evidence every day of universities finding it harder to recruit people from other European countries because they've already decided to make judgments about what they're hearing and feeling about the Brexit process, so there is, I think, growing evidence of the adverse impact this kind of deal will have". "That would be a very big negative for the deal", said the president, who is close to leading Brexiteers in the UK.

Against this backdrop, the prime minister is visiting different parts of the United Kingdom to engage directly with the public and businesses in a bid to build support for the deal.

"We have already been laying the groundwork for an ambitious agreement with the USA through our joint working groups, which have met five times so far", the spokeswoman said.

"We will have control of that and we will strike trade deals that will enhance our prosperity, enhance our economy and bring jobs to the United Kingdom".

Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer is pressing ministers to comply with a binding Commons motion to publish the full advice after ministers dropped their opposition to the motion to avoid a damaging defeat.

The Labour boss has said he would "relish" the chance for debate - but would wait until a formal invite comes in first.

"Jeremy Corbyn and I are leaders of parties that cover getting on for 90% of all MPs in the House of Commons".
