In truth, the drama has already well and truly started with the breaking news this lunchtime that MPs will be allowed to vote on an amendment that could bring about a second referendum - with remaining in the European Union one of the options.

Lawmakers approved by 412 votes to 202 a motion setting out the option to ask the European Union for a short delay if parliament can agree on a Brexit deal by March 20 - or a longer delay if no deal can be agreed in time.

She blamed prime minister Theresa May for the current state of the Brexit negotiations and said after listening to people living in Makerfield could not support putting the question back to the people. Listen to the full conversation here.

MPs also rejected a call to hold a second Brexit referendum - a blow to the hopes of a large number of Britons who still dream of keeping their European identity.

And the Liberal Democrat soon-not-to-be leader, Vince Cable, said that if Theresa May's deal was rejected yet again this week, then parliament could end up cancelling Brexit. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn hopes that by supporting the second vote this will stop "a damaging Tory Brexit". He said: "Today I reiterate my conviction that a deal can be agreed based on our alternative plan that can command support across the House". If Brexit is delayed past the dates of the European elections in May, the United Kingdom may have to participate in the elections to avoid disenfranchising British citizens. These demands propose a stable agreement with the EU, shared duties and obligations with the EU, established arrangements with the Single Market, strategic fit on rights and protection, participation in EU agencies and funding programs (environment, education, etc), and "clear agreements" on security arrangements ( European Arrest Warrant, shared databases, etc).

Samsung to hide the front facing camera behind screen
By moving the camera under the screen, it would remove the need for any kind of cutout on the front display. The Galaxy S10 hasn't even been out a week yet, but Samsung is already looking toward the future.

Some have expressed fear that the country's 33.5 billion-euro ($38 billion) tourism industry could suffer if Britain departs from the EU.

In essence, Mrs May has handed Brexit supporters an ultimatum - ratify her deal by March 20 or face a delay to Brexit way beyond June 30 that would open up the possibility that the entire divorce could be ultimately thwarted.

"No extension should be granted beyond July 1 unless the European Parliament elections are held at the mandatory date", the paper said, as quoted by the Financial Times.

Not only do some high-profile Conservatives, including former cabinet minister Esther McVey, now support the deal but the DUP is said to be in "ongoing, significant" discussions with Downing Street.

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.
