United Kingdom risks Brexit paralysis and possibly no Brexit at all: Foreign minister

Pro-European protestors wave EU flags at Trafalgar Square

A group of cross-party backbench, or non-Governmental, MPs are said to be tabling an amendment to change House of Commons rules so that backbenchers' motions could precedence over Government business, according to sources speaking to the newspaper of record.

The UK is due to leave the European Union on 29 March 2019 automatically, whether the deal is passed by MPs or not.

The Sunday Times says that the plan by backbenchers would see the government lose control of parliamentary business.

Asked later whether Labour would push for a second referendum if there was no general election, Corbyn said: "We're then into that consideration at that point".

Comatose woman who had baby is hospitalized, police say
Police launched a rape investigation after being called to the facility on December 29 regarding an infant who had been "coded". Police say the baby was in fact in distress, and both mother and child were taken to the hospital where they are recovering.


"When you turned out to vote in the referendum, you did so because you wanted your voice to be heard". We can not - and must not - let you down.

'Doing so 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".

It was previously thought only ministers could extend the two-year Article 50 process which, which governs how a member state leaves the EU.

Mrs May was boosted on Thursday by two Tory backbenchers - her former policy adviser George Freeman, and Trudy Harrison - indicating they would back her deal as well as by a call from Japanese PM Shinzo Abe for the United Kingdom to avoid a no-deal.

Combating project fear tactics by soft-Brexit and Remain supporting MPs that clean-break Brexit can somehow be stopped, Tory lawmaker Anne-Marie Trevelyan told Sophy Ridge on Sky News Sunday that "the reality is the statute in place at the moment is to leave on the 29th of March either with an agreed deal, which the prime minister has been negotiating, or if one can't be reached by then on a no-deal basis and then we continue the conversation afterwards".

Jayme Closs, missing United States teen, found alive after 87-day search
There is no evidence in the early stages of the investigation that links Patterson to the parents or to Jayme, Fitzgerald said. Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, was arrested in the kidnapping of Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs . "(Jayme) don't know him from Adam.


On Monday the debate on the meaningful vote on Mrs May's deal will resume for a fourth day.

He wrote: 'It's clear that if our government and parliament are incapable of finding a way out of this mess, it should be taken out of the hands of the politicians and returned to the British people to take back control'.

Hunt continued: "If this deal is rejected, ultimately what we may end up with is not a different type of Brexit, but Brexit paralysis".

A Cabinet minister has been accused of engaging in "gutter politics" after he warned that blocking Brexit could "open the door" to "extremist" populist political forces in the UK.

"I'm saying this would be (an) incredibly damaging breach of trust and it would also be very bad for Britain's reputation overseas, having made a decision to leave the European Union, if we in the end for whatever reasons found we weren't able to do it".
