UK PM Theresa May warns it would be catastrophic to halt Brexit

Jeremy Corbyn to repeat general election demand to break Brexit 'deadlock'

"The Prime Minister's got to stop threatening Parliament and indeed, threatening the whole of the United Kingdom, that it's a choice between her deal and no deal - that's not the case".

"Doing so would be a catastrophic and unforgivable breach of trust in our democracy", May said.

"We'll have a much more informed debate than was the case in 2016 - we had a slogan on the side of a bus - and I think it's only right, now that we know what the consequences of Brexit will be, that we allow the people to determine what they want".

Brexit minister Stephen Barclay told BBC TV that persuading enough lawmakers to support the deal would be "challenging" but that even if it was rejected, he suspected parliament would ultimately support something "along the lines of this deal".

Downing Street said it was "extremely concerned" about the plans, reported in the Sunday Times, which could threaten Brexit legislation and the Government's ability to govern.

Trump says he has nothing to hide about meetings with Putin
Trump did so after a meeting with Putin in 2017 in Hamburg that was also attended by then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson . Trump's ex-national security advisor, Michael Flynn, has pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about his Moscow ties.


Mr Cable said this could be done by revoking Article 50, the mechanism which triggered the exit process, or by holding a second referendum.

Mr Corbyn said that if he forced a national election and his party won, Brexit may have to be delayed while they negotiated a new deal with the EU.

He has since become a vocal critic of the Government's Brexit plans, urging ministers to take a tougher stance in divorce talks. And then, in the 2017 General Election, 80 per cent of you voted for MPs who stood on manifestos to respect that referendum result. Now it is our turn to deliver for you.

Mrs May's deal will come before MPs on Tuesday where it is widely expected to be voted down. We can not - and must not - let you down.

"What Article 50 says is: "The EU Treaties shall cease to apply to the State in question from the date of entry into force of the withdrawal agreement or" - and here's the key - "failing that, two years after the notification" so the notification was the letter that was delivered that Theresa May spoke about".

Phillies to hire Manny Machado's mentor from Baltimore
The Yankees agreed to a two-year contract with second baseman DJ LeMahieu on Friday, according to the YES Network's Jack Curry . There's been noise this week that the Yankees are less aggressively after Manny Machado than anticipated.


Rejecting her proposed package, she said it "would be a catastrophic and unforgivable breach of trust in our democracy".

My message to Parliament this weekend is simple: it is time to forget the games and do what is right for our country.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe warned on Thursday that the world did not want to see a disorderly Brexit and that he fully supported May's withdrawal deal.

Part of Mrs May's Brexit deal includes plans for an "ambitious, wide-ranging and balanced" trade agreement, but the text is not legally binding.

Dominic Grieve, the former attorney general, suggested the March 29 exit date should be removed from domestic legislation if the prime minister's Brexit deal is defeated, before the United Kingdom goes to the European Union to ask for an extension to Article 50.
