Brexit Secretary Admits Government Will Still Push For Theresa May's Deal

UK Prime Minister Theresa May centre with front bench colleagues

John Bercow provoked uproar at Westminster on Monday when he ruled that the Government could not bring the Prime Minister's deal back for a third "meaningful vote" unless there were substantial changes.

May had hoped to win over her domestic opponents and bring her deal back to Parliament before a summit of the 28-nation bloc in Brussels on Thursday and Friday.

In an unexpected announcement on Monday, Speaker John Bercow said Ms.

As the person in charge of France's handling of Brexit, Loiseau has been vocal during negotiations, recently discussing how Theresa May's government could go about requesting an extension to the Article 50 deadline.

The meeting on Thursday (early Friday) is thus looming as a critical moment in the chaotic 11th-hour Brexit process, and a vital test of Mrs May's premiership.

Parliament speaker John Bercow made the announcement on Monday afternoon, saying the "government can not legitimately ... resubmit to the House [of Commons] the same proposition or substantially the same proposition as that of last week". Which part of the word LEAVE do the media and the 600 odd (in every sense of the word) MP's do not understand?

Neil Wilson, chief market analyst at Markets.com, said the news was a 'big blow for the Government as it effectively closes off another vote this week unless Mrs May can pull a rabbit out of the hat'.

In order to avoid a further stalling of the withdrawal agreement, the British government may now have to come back with essentially the same deal but tweaked with additional side agreements with the EU.

French officials say in private that they are not alone in their stance but that they are more willing than other countries to stick their necks out because Britain will always blame the French for their misfortunes.

It comes as German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she will fight for an orderly Brexit right up until Britain's planned departure from the EU.

In Brussels, Germany's Europe Minister Michael Roth complained that European Union patience was being sorely tested by London but adopted a softer tone than Paris, saying Germany's main aim was to avoid a no-deal Brexit, which would disrupt business across the continent.

"Why would be there be an extension without a reason?" she said.

A senior European Union official said that technically the United Kingdom could submit such request for an extension as late as "one hour before midnight" on 29 March, and it can be approved after the European Union summit by the council of member states through a written procedure.

Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay said that despite Bercow's ruling, the deal could be voted on again if "the circumstances have changed". They are likely to rub our great Nation's face in the proverbial by demanding a very long extension, perhaps up to two years and therefore the anti-democratic denouement of this Brexit stitch-up will be complete. How many times do we have to say this; they are meant to be our servants not our masters and the Speaker is meant to be independent.

This week, a vote could determine whether lawmakers will extend the Brexit negotiating period.

Mrs Merkel said that current events were in a "state of flux", adding that European Union leaders will try to react to whatever the United Kingdom proposes.
