May Brexit warning of 'unstoppable Ireland border poll pressure' in no deal

Bim Afolami warned any new leader would face the'same arithmetic

Writing in The Sunday Times Theresa May said her fourth attempt at getting her withdrawal agreement through parliament would "represent a new, bold offer with an improved package of measures".

Mr Coveney said any deal can not involve changing the Withdrawal Agreement, but said the European Union has always been open to changing the Future Relationship Declaration but not the Withdrawal Agreement.

Her authority weakened by the defeats, May on Thursday agreed to set out a timetable for her departure following the vote in the week beginning June 3, regardless of whether MPs back her deal at the fourth time of asking.

Three previous attempts to pass her EU Withdrawal Bill and implement Brexit have so far failed.

The Prime Minister's chief of staff Gavin Barwell is reported to have told Conservative MPs a no-deal Brexit would create tensions in Northern Ireland.

Observers say she will likely trigger a contest for the leadership of her governing Conservative Party once the bill either falls or completes all of its stages through parliament. "The personality might change but the facts don't", he said. The Tory party is now polling at just 12%, according to the latest Opinium poll for the Observer newspaper, with voters protesting May's failure to deliver Brexit three years after the referendum.

In a warning to the MPs on her own benches advocating a no-deal Brexit, in which the United Kingdom would default on trading terms set by the World Trade Organisation, May said that parliament "will do all it can to block it".

The WAB - which is needed to ratify the deal with Brussels - is expected to include new measures on protecting workers' rights, an issue where agreement with Labour was said to have been close.

There's also evidence to suggest that bitcoin is benefiting as a store-of-value asset amid the latest bout of geopolitical tumult. The rally has been spurred by signs that big corporates are interested in using cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.

Labour - which has been criticised for facing both ways on a second referendum - is also expecting a hard result with the same poll showing them in third place behind the Liberal Democrats.

Ministers will also consider whether to put any of the alternative approaches to indicative votes in the Commons to establish which, if any, can command a majority.

He said he has not taken his eye off Brexit for one second, even though an extension has been granted until October.

The DUP has vehemently opposed the Prime Minister's withdrawal agreement due to concerns that the so-called backstop to avoid a hard border in Ireland would threaten the Union with Britain.

However, the source made clear the package would not just be aimed at Labour MPs but would seek to secure the widest possible support across the Commons.

The Prime Minister's efforts to find the votes she needs for the WAB come as she faces a mauling at the hands of the public in the European elections.

"Whatever the outcome of any (indicative) votes, I will not be simply asking MPs to think again", May wrote in the Sunday Times newspaper.
