Growing call for new referendum as Theresa May’s Brexit woes continue

Growing call for new referendum as Theresa May’s Brexit woes continue

A government spokesman said: 'As set out in the White Paper, the United Kingdom is seeking participation in the European Medicines Agency. While they will not vote for the Brexiteers amendments this evening, they could vote against the Bill itself at the third reading to pile more pressure on May and force her into a retreat from the Chequers plans.

Three Labour MPs voted with the government. Hammond told MPs: "This does not undermine the bill, it keeps it on the road".

The UK is due to leave the European Union on 29 March 2019 but has yet to agree how its final relationship with the bloc will work.

May is battling to unite her Conservative Party around her Brexit blueprint formally unveiled last week following months of cabinet infighting.

Brexiteers believe that keeps Britain too close to the European Union, while pro-Europeans think it fails to protect the country´s dominant services sector, among other gripes.

Mrs May bowed to Brexiteer demands earlier to stem a threatened uprising on the Customs Bill.

Where the government might struggle is explaining its acceptance of the demand that the European Union must collect tariffs on Britain's behalf, if London is to do the same - a suggestion one expert said the bloc's negotiators were unlikely to accept.

The Daily Express says prominent Brexiteers believe Theresa May has betrayed the public over her plans for a facilitated customs arrangement with the EU.

Alisson: Liverpool make offer to sign Roma goalkeeper
Reports today claimed Liverpool had made a £62m bid for the Brazil global , with the goalkeeper agreeing terms with the Reds. Loris Karius has already made errors in pre-season.

Their plan is simple: to kill off Theresa May's so-called Chequers plan, the Brexit compromise which has gone down badly with both Leavers and Remainers alike.

But the Prime Minister, whose Government has tabled a motion calling for the current parliamentary session to be cut short, has been accused of "running scared" amid Brexit turmoil.

And he insisted: "I am simply asking the prime minister to hold to the pledges that she has made and to keep the government true to the commitments it has made".

The government has just won a narrow victory in the House of Commons, defeating an attempt by pro-Remain Conservative MPs to force it to stick closely to the European Union for trade in goods after Brexit.

May vows to stick to her plan to negotiate the closest possible commercial links - "a common rule book" for goods - with the bloc, saying this is the only way to balance political and economic priorities for Brexit, the most momentous shift in British foreign and trade policy for decades.

MPs voted 307 to 301 to overturn an amendment to the trade bill under which Britain would be forced to join a customs union with the EU if no agreement were reached on frictionless trade by 21 January 2019.

This would put "tens of thousands of Scottish jobs" at risk and cost the economy "billions of pounds", he claimed.

- Ben Bradley Also quit as a Tory vice-chairman, warning "if we do not deliver Brexit in spirit as well as in name, then we are handing Jeremy Corbyn the keys to Number 10".
