Brexit: Theresa May Begging MPs for More Time to Amend Her 'Deal'

Jeremy Corbyn has accused May of a "cynical" attempt to run down the clock before the March 29 Brexit date in order to leave MPs with a stark choice of accepting her deal or crashing out of the European Union without any agreement.

Meanwhile, Remainer MPs are trying another tactic to secure a second referendum - suggesting they could back Mrs May's plan in the Commons if she agrees to put it to the country afterwards.

Brokenshire's promise of another vote two weeks later is created to discourage lawmakers from binding the government's hands this week.

Labour's Brexit vote brigade An amendment, to be tabled by the Labour front bench and pushed by the shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer may struggle if it does not attract cross-party support or get picked up in another guise by a Conservative backbencher.

'And that's what we want to do this week'.

He told the Sunday Times he fears the Prime Minister is "pretending to make progress" but actually intends to return to Parliament after the March 21/22 European Council summit the week before Brexit and offer MPs a "binary choice" - her deal or no deal.

'We can't allow that to happen, ' Sir Keir said.

"There needs to be a day when Parliament says that's it, enough is enough".

As we get ever closer to Brexit, ministers have indicated that MPs will get the chance to vote again on Theresa May's Brexit strategy but it is not clear when and how.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has rejected the idea of targeting a customs union with the European Union, pouring cold water on hopes from some that she could shift her Brexit policy to win over the opposition Labour Party.

'If she is unable to adopt a sensible deal because it would split the Tories, then the answer is quite simple: there must be a general election, ' Mr Corbyn said.

On Wednesday, Mrs May will ask MPs for more time to get legally-binding changes to the controversial Northern Irish backstop, which she believes will be enough to secure a majority in Parliament for her deal.

Mr Corbyn said that without an election "we will keep all options on the table - as agreed in our conference motion - including the option of a public vote".

In a letter to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn dated Sunday, May opposed his party's appeal for the country to remain in a customs union with Brussels.

The government has not ruled out supporting this - and has promised a formal response to it and further talks with Labour - but they say it would prevent the United Kingdom from making its own trade deals after Brexit.
