British PM eyes final Brexit battle in June

British PM eyes final Brexit battle in June

May's office said in a statement that if lawmakers passed the bill, the United Kingdom could still leave the European Union "before the summer parliamentary recess", which is likely to start in late July.

A spokesman for Jeremy Corbyn said that the Labour Party would not be able to support the bill when MPs are expected to vote on it at the start of June, but refused to rule out six times the party abstaining on the matter.

May and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn sat down for talks again on Tuesday ahead of further discussions between the government and opposition on Wednesday.

"If the prime minister brings the withdrawal bill to the Commons for a vote, the question will be "what has changed"?" asked Nigel Dodds, parliamentary leader of the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which props up May's minority government.

Brexit had been due to take place on March 29, but the deadline has since been extended to October 31 to buy the government more time to come up with a plan almost three years after British voters opted to leave the EU.

"If the House of Commons does not approve the WAB, then the Barnier deal is dead in that form", he replied, referring to the EU's Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier. Many Conservative MPs have rejected Britain remaining in the customs union.

Defeat would also deal a heavy blow to the Prime Minister's already fragile authority and, although the WAB vote would not be a formal confidence motion, Number 10 sources acknowledged its significance "won't be underestimated".

The leader of the Scottish Tories appeared to take aim at Theresa May and her ministers "down south" as the Brexit deadlock continues saying they "have to fight harder".

However, she is under pressure from Brexiteers maneuvering against a compromise with Labour - with some Conservatives eyeing her position.

And he added that if there was any deal made with Labour to secure backing for the Bill, it could "destroy" the Conservative Party.

Progress has been painfully slow, and there are growing calls in May's Conservative party to abandon the process.

Truthfully I can not find a minister who thinks any of this will get Brexit across the line.

"What she (May) is working to do is to get a deal passed as soon as possible", the spokesman said.

Conservative MP and Brexit supporter Peter Bone thought the deal had little chance of being passed. Raab was reportedly disgruntled at being sidelined in the negotiations in favor of Olly Robbins - a civil servant who's close to May. Mr Fox then warned MPs will be left to choose between revoking Article 50 or leaving with no deal if the Bill is voted down.

He said: "I don't think the talks will go anywhere except to embarrass us and actually undermine her negotiating position with the Europeans".

Barclay said that would leave parliament with the choice of revoking the decision to leave the European Union or exiting without a deal, the default position if no divorce agreement can be reached.

The government had hoped to get the London Parliament's agreement for the divorce deal in the coming weeks so British MEPs would never have to take their seats.
