Irish PM Does Not See Much Room for Brexit Deal Renegotiation

4 resignations and counting May’s government ‘falling apart before our eyes’ over Brexit deal

In a statement Mr Vara said the draft Brexit agreement the United Kingdom has reached with the European Union "leaves the United Kingdom in a half-way house with no time limit on when we will finally be a sovereign state".

But Maajid warns that a trade deal where Northern Ireland is a different customs arrangement to the rest of the United Kingdom would create a hard border within the UK. When 48 letters are submitted to the party's so-called 1922 committee, she will face a leadership challenge.

Scenarios include May's deal ultimately winning approval; May losing her job; Britain leaving the bloc with no agreement; or even another referendum. He blasted: 'I therefore believe that in order for our party to survive in Government it is imperative we find a new leader who can command the respect of the DUP and therefore maintain the working majority in Parliament'. Asked directly if DUP leader Arlene Foster had pulled her party's backing, the PM said "I haven't had a testy exchange with Arlene on that" and insisted it is still intact.

Mrs May has also faced a backlash from Tory Brexiteers and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), amid suggestions of moves to force a no-confidence vote. "They've raised some questions with us, they've raised some concerns with us and yes we are looking at those".

"Britain would be free to carve trade agreements with America, Canada, Japan, China, which it's now prevented from doing because all the European Union trade agreements are geared towards to the Franco-German interests and not to Great Britain in which the financial center is the most important contributor to national GDP", Browne said.

Pence began his speech by saying the U.S. commitment to the Indo-Pacific had never been stronger. But Pence made it clear that the United States would not back down.

May said she felt the threat of a no deal Brexit personally as she was Type 1 diabetic: "I depend on insulin every day".

British aero-engine maker Rolls-Royce said it was continuing with its contingency plans.

Supporters of Brexit say that while the divorce might bring some short-term instability, in the longer term it will allow the United Kingdom to thrive and also enable deeper European Union integration without such a powerful reluctant member.

Labour will announce later whether or not it will back the deal. "I am hopeful that on reflection and careful consideration of the alternatives, MPs in the House of Commons will conclude that this agreement represents the only reasonable way forward if Brexit must take place".
