MPs Are Intent on Reversing Brexit!

Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage reacts during ‘Brexit Betrayal’ march from Sunderland to London in Sunderland Britain

An MP from the borough has stepped down from her post as a junior shadow minister after voting against an amendment on a second Brexit referendum.

Theresa May is planning to hold another "meaningful vote" on her withdrawal deal by Wednesday - after it was overwhelmingly rejected on two previous occasions.

The British pound rose on Friday, posting its best week since January, as Prime Minister Theresa May tried to convince eurosceptics to back her deal to exit the European Union in a third parliamentary vote next week.

If MPs vote against it for the third time, the government has warned it will have to seek a much longer extension.

In total 17 Labour MPs voted against the amendment, which was defeated by 334 votes to 85.

Next week, the EU's leaders will meet at a summit to discuss the extension of Britain's membership after 29 March, as well as the terms and length of the delay. In previous political eras, by now she would probably have quit as prime minister or been forced out of office.

May's spokesman said the government was still making preparations for a no-deal exit. "We need to bring colleagues who have concerns about a people's vote with us", it said. The government then let MPs vote on whether or not they wanted to leave the European Union without a deal (they didn't), followed by a further vote asking them if they wanted to extend Article 50, which facilitates the departure process, until the summer ( they did).

The March to Leave set off from the North East city on Saturday morning, and will make its way over to London over a 14-day period, arriving in the capital on March 29, where a mass rally will take place on Parliament Square.

Support for Mrs May is at a similarly low ebb among Government ministers, with one Cabinet source telling The Telegraph that "there are only two ministers in the Cabinet who still support her". Speaking to the BBC's Political Thinking podcast, Ms McVey said: "The element now is that people will have to take a bad deal rather than no deal".

"We've always said in Ireland, if the United Kingdom asks for more time, for one to prevent no deal, a crash-out Brexit happening, but secondly to implement a clear plan and strategy to reflect on and perhaps change direction in regard to Brexit, well then Ireland certainly wouldn't be an obstacle to that", Coveney told a conference.

The government said it would ask for a "technical" delay until 30 June to pass necessary legislation if MPs finally approve the deal next week.

Legal advice circulated at an EU meeting on Friday had seemingly opened the door to a Brexit delay until 1 July, when the new European parliament will sit for the first time.
