Theresa May Defeats Rebellion in Parliament over Brexit Plans

FG lauds outcome of Kim, Trump historic summit

LONDON - Theresa May has narrowly avoided a humiliating parliamentary defeat on Brexit after making a major concession to Conservative rebels which could hand MPs an effective veto on her Brexit deal.

So just hours after the concession, (or non-concession) very, very dark mutterings began from those who had been persuaded by what they thought was a promise. May cranked up when a pro-E.U.

On the other side, a handful of Labour Leavers are likely to back the government in breach of their own party whip, making it hard to predict outcomes.

Issues most likely to provoke rebellions include the "meaningful vote" and the question of whether the date of Brexit should be written into law - both due this afternoon - as well as whether the United Kingdom should stay in the customs union or EEA, which should come early on Wednesday evening.

He said that while he was sad to leave the government, he believed many big changes were needed to make the U.K.'s exit a success.

Grieve told MPs: "If we don't achieve a deal at all, the fact is we are going to be facing an enormous crisis". May told Tory MPs late on June 11.

The Daily Express, another pro-Brexit tabloid, issued a thinly-veiled threat to lawmakers, saying they should "Ignore the will of the people at [their] peril".

Ms. May's minority government relies on the support of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party for a slender working majority in the 650-member Commons. Brexit-backers objected as it would have all but removed the no-deal nuclear option from negotiators' arsenal.

Prince Harry has allegedly helped his spouse pick out the clothing for her first official royal engagements. In addition, a palace source told the publication, where the Duchess stood "would have come from her ".

The government was putting a combative spin on the concessions Tuesday evening: "The Brexit Secretary has set out three tests that any new amendment has to meet - not undermining the negotiations, not changing the constitutional role of Parliament and Government in negotiating global treaties, and respecting the referendum result", a spokesperson for the Brexit department said in a statement.

Davis said this was a "no Brexit amendment" that amounted to "an unconstitutional shift that risks undermining our negotiations with the European Union".

The E.U. (Withdrawal) Bill is the draft law that would set the legal framework for Brexit and Ms.

The concession means MPs could now be handed the power to seek to prevent Britain crashing out of the European Union without a Brexit deal. "It enables parliament to dictate to the government their course of action in global negotiations". "I can not support the government's decision to oppose this amendment because doing so breaches such fundamental principles of human rights and parliamentary sovereignty", he said. "A vote between bad and worse is not a meaningful vote".

The Lords amendment on a "meaningful vote" for MPs was defeated in the Commons by 324 to 298.

May urged Conservative lawmakers to back the government and show "that we are united as a party in our determination to deliver on the decision made by the British people". The U.K. will leave the European Union in March next year, but talks in Brussels are struggling to make headway.

The MPs said May had also agreed to further talk on the third part of Grieve's amendment, "part C", which would allow MPs to direct the government if no deal is reached by February next year.
