Podcast: How badly will Brexit end for the UK?

MPs voted down no-deal Brexit in any conditions pound soars 9-month high

A senior European Union official is floating the possibility of a two-step delay to Britain's departure from the bloc, now scheduled for March 29. May had to rely on Labour and other opposition votes to get it through. Their manoeuvre failed by two votes after a week of infighting over strategy.

Shadow housing minister Yvonne Fovargue, shadow education minister Emma Lewell-Buck, shadow business minister Justin Madders, Ruth Smeeth, a shadow ministerial aide, and Labour whip Stephanie Peacock, all quit their roles to oppose one.

The British parliament voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to seek a delay to the March 29 exit date enshrined in law.

The next day, they voted to reject a no-deal exit.

May's second-in-command, Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington, warned that unless MPs backed the prime minister's deal, the UK's exit from the European Union could face a long delay.

Hill was also ordered to complete a 52-week batterer's intervention program and an anger management course. Hill's name does not appear on Thursday's police report, and he has not been arrested or charged.


May hopes the threat of a long delay will push Brexit supporters in her Conservative Party and members of the Democratic Unionists, the small Northern Irish party that props up her minority government in parliament, to back her deal at the third attempt.

The backstop is "an insurance policy that would only be used if we are unable to agree a sufficiently ambitious future relationship between the EU and the United Kingdom that would remove any need for it", Mr Donohoe said in a speech at Bloomberg's European headquarters in London on Friday.

Protesters plan to set out Saturday from Sunderland, which is 270 miles (434 kilometers) north of London that voted by 61-39 percent in 2016 to leave the EU.

Downing Street said this was a "natural consequence" of Mrs.

He reiterated he did not want to see "rolling" deadlines for Brexit and any request for an extension had to be for a "purpose".

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker tweeted that he learned of the attack "with horror and profound sadness". Two explosive devices attached to suspects' vehicles have now been found and they have been disarmed.


They included the Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay, the Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns, the International Trade Secretary Liam Fox, the Transport Secretary Chris Grayling, the Commons Leader Andrea Leadsom, the International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury Liz Truss and the Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson.

German Justice Minister Katarina Barley said Britain must use any extra time productively.

Only a longer delay request that puts "something new on the table: a referendum, an election, some other deal" would be likely to gain European Union approval, Macron's office said.

The amendment for a second Brexit referendum was rejected by 334 to 85 votes.

May planned to spend the next few days trying to persuade opponents in her Conservative Party and its parliamentary allies to support the withdrawal agreement, which Parliament has resoundingly defeated twice.
