Brexit backstop: No deal better than bad deal says Dodds

Brexit backstop: No deal better than bad deal says Dodds

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday called on members of her Conservative party to 'move beyond what divides us, ' three days after she suffered another humiliating defeat on her Brexit plans in parliament.

But as Prime Minister Theresa May prepares to return to Brussels next week, a senior minister conceded the latest display of divisions in London risked affecting the talks.

The consequences of the impasse in Parliament were further highlighted this weekend, after British regional airline flybmi ceased operation, partly blaming uncertainty surrounding Brexit.

The campaign is expected to help inform businesses that want to continue trading with the United Kingdom after March 29 on what they need to do to ensure a smooth transition and avoid possible business disruption.

On Thursday night, MPs rejected a motion expressing support for May's efforts to seek changes to her Brexit deal, after members of her own Conservative party abstained.

May's defeat in last Thursday's symbolic vote undermined her pledge to European Union leaders that she could pass her deal with concessions primarily around the Irish backstop - a guarantee that there can be no return of border controls between the British province of Northern Ireland and EU-member Ireland.

The vagueness of Collins' reported actions and statements do not clarify what his future might be in NY or elsewhere. He finished with 96 total tackles, four pass breakups and a forced fumble through 12 games in 2018.

"It is unbelievable really that the British government and the British parliament have allowed it to come to this", Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said in Dublin.

'The question is, given those worries how would European countries explain to their electorates that there was a proposal from Britain to get agreement, by altering the backstop, which was then rejected on ideological grounds, when the effect of that could be that you saw recession spreading to the people of Europe?' But Mrs May has been unable to convince a majority of MPs to back the withdrawal terms she struck with the European Union past year.

The former advisor to Lady Thatcher said Britain is now "most likely" heading towards no deal Brexit due to the EU's failure to negotiate in good faith.

"We are happy to revisit anything that would clarify the situation without reopening the Withdrawal Agreement", commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas told reporters in Brussels on Monday.

But their move underlines the increasing frustration within Labour over Corbyn's reluctance to change his Brexit strategy - the leftist leader and long-time critic of the European Union has stuck to his preference for a new election or his plan to leave the bloc.
