May presses on with Brexit vote as MPs demand better deal

May's Brexit deal is best, says Rudd

If the parliament approves the Brexit bill on Tuesday's vote, that would pave the way for Britain to avoid a no-deal departure from the EU.

May's office said the vote was definitely going ahead, but the BBC and other outlets reported it would be delayed. With EU officials adamant the withdrawal deal was not up for renegotiation, the country does not know on what terms it will leave - and whether May will still be Britain's leader when it does.

Brexit supporters and May's nominal allies in Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) say it could leave Britain forced to accept European Union regulations indefinitely, or Northern Ireland treated differently from the rest of the United Kingdom.

"These hardliners insist that Britain should carry out a no-deal exit from the European Union immediately".

"If the government's main priority is to secure EU-UK trade that is as frictionless as possible, it must decide how far it is willing to follow EU rules".

"In our - admittedly low confidence - base case, stress in financial markets and pressure from businesses should lead to a last-minute approval of the deal in parliament", said Silvia Dall'Angelo, senior economist at Hermes Investment Management.

It was a new blow for May, who became prime minister after Britain's 2016 referendum decision to leave the EU. The House of Commons is due to vote Tuesday on whether to accept or reject the Brexit deal, and signs point to a big defeat for the prime minister.

May admits her Brexit deal would be defeated
The news that the vote would be postponed came after the Prime Minister held an emergency conference call with Cabinet ministers. "We will therefore defer the vote scheduled for tomorrow and not proceed to divide the House at this time", May said.

European Council President Donald Tusk said on Sunday he had spoken to May by phone ahead of what he said was "an important week for the fate of Brexit". May has shot down suggestions of a second referendum on the Brexit deal.

"If the prime minister is able to go back to Brussels this week and say I'm afraid that the Irish backstop solution that you have come up with is very unpopular ... they will listen".

"Bringing back the same botched deal ... will not change its fundamental flaws and deeply held objections right across this House, which go far wider than the backstop alone", said Corbyn.

May's draft deal has taken flak from almost all sides of the United Kingdom political spectrum, including from within her own Conservative Party.

Pro-Brexit rebels in her Conservative Party can trigger a vote of no-confidence in May's leadership if they win the backing of 48 members of Parliament. Her spokeswoman briefed reporters on Monday that there was no plan to pull the vote.

Opposition Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn was quoted as saying that May's Brexit deal is "so disastrous" that her government "has taken the desperate step of delaying its own vote at the eleventh hour".
