May in fresh standoff with Tory rebels over Brexit demands


The logic of that argument is that EU negotiator Michel Barnier would prefer the softest of Brexits - a model known as "Norway plus", in which Britain remains in the European Economic Area (EEA) and the customs union, accepting all single market rules, including freedom of movement, and the EU's trade policy without any representation in Brussels.

But they face a revolt by pro-EU Tory MPs determined to retain as numerous changes as possible in the legislation.

Former attorney general Dominic Grieve had tabled an amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill to beef up a "meaningful vote" for MPs on the final Brexit deal.

The Pound won a moment's respite late Tuesday when MP's rejected the so called "meaningful vote" amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill, which seemingly kicks any threat to the stability of the government out into the long grass, but the next challenge to Prime Minister Theresa May's leadership and the government is already looming over Sterling.

The government last night gave into rebel demands to hand MPs an effective veto on May's Brexit deal.

The spokesman added, following talks with the potential Tory rebels, the government would bring forward an amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill, echoing Mr Grieve's, when it returns to the House of Lords on Monday. Anti-Brexit MPs had argued that removing the no-deal outcome was necessary for the vote to be a meaningful one.

Failure to appease the rebels would likely see May defeated in parliament in the coming weeks, blowing apart Tuesday's hard-won truce and badly undermining her leadership of a minority government and a divided political party.

"We have now removed every incentive from the European Union for doing a deal by the end of November", one senior United Kingdom government official said. "Any compromise [amendment] would have to be tabled by Govt in Lords".

The statement said: "We have not, and will not, agree to the House of Commons binding the government's hands in the negotiations". And if there is still no agreement before February 15 parliament would vote on whether to take over the Brexit process.

Pro-EU lawmakers threatened on Wednesday to withdraw their support for Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy if she does not follow through on concessions they thought they had been promised.
