May: Brexit deal '95% done'

However, she came under fire from critics on all sides in the Commons after she confirmed that she could accept a short extension to the transition period after the United Kingdom leaves in order to secure a final settlement.

There were "very real, practical and diplomatic obstacles" to parliament amending the deal: by the time the parliament voted there would be no time to re-enter negotiations.

He declared himself "unhappy" with an expectation that European Union citizens who were living in the United Kingdom before Brexit will have to pay to gain "settled status". Currently, the transition period is due to close at the end of 2020.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will tell the Commons on Monday that 95 per cent of the Brexit withdrawal agreement and its protocols are settled as she seeks to demonstrate to anxious MPs in her own party that she is making headway in the increasingly fraught divorce talks.

May's office said she planned to tell the House of Commons that "the vast majority" of issues are settled, including the status of Gibraltar, Britain's territory at the tip of the Iberian Peninsula.

British PM Theresa May appeared to open the way to extend the post-Brexit transition period until December 2021, as European Union leaders offered an olive branch to her in a bid to break the impasse during the European Union summit on Wednesday (17 October).

Even if half that number voted down the deal, that would still create a strong possibility of it failing to pass, creating uncertain conditions in which a number of now seemingly far-fetched scenarios would become more plausible.

"It's a curious conflation of interests and thinking from diametrically opposed viewpoints", Tannock told BI.

Pro-Brexit MPs Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg also featured in the "war-game" according to the paper, alongside pro-EU People's Vote director James McGrory.

The language has also been condemned by a series of senior Tory MPs including Sarah Wollaston and Nicky Morgan. The second problem is that such talks should start only after Brexit. So the decision for the parliament would be a clear choice between "the best deal the government can negotiate" or a rejection of the deal.

"A number of MEPs I have spoken to who fully understand that their governments must tow the line and be as tough as possible, not to blink", he said.

Her fresh comments attracted criticism with Mrs Bradley accused of thinking of Brexit only in terms of how it affected the DUP.

She added: "If Karen Bradley is so confident that people are responding well to Brexit, then she should be happy to put it to the vote".

The decision to end the bringing forward of the clocks in spring and their subsequent going back in autumn came after research suggested that it was unpopular with the public in European Union member states (presumably including the UK), and could mean that European Union countries will have to choose to adopt a permanent summer or winter time.
