Prime Minister May Strikes New Brexit Deal - But Will Parliament Approve?

Finally, a Big Week for Brexit

However, he said the situation was unchanged if a deal that supersedes the backstop can not be reached "through no such demonstrable failure of either party".

"If MPs vote for Theresa May's Brexit deal, we edge closer to understanding exactly how and when Brexit will play out but whether that is positive or negative for the pound depends on the deal itself".

GBP price, Brexit latest and market sentiment: The UK Attorney General Geoffrey Cox has said the legal risk remains unchanged that the UK would have no internationally lawful means of exiting the Irish backstop in the event of Brexit.

"This evening's agreement with the European Commission does not contain anything approaching the changes Theresa May promised parliament", said Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. SNP MPs have reiterated calls for a second referendum, saying that the time has come for May to accept that a new referendum is necessary.

Nothing has really changed, and it is still a bad deal so unable to vote for this.

May returned with three new assurances on the backstop, which she hoped would convince the DUP and anti-Brexit MPs her own party to support her Brexit deal in Tuesday night's vote.

The judge said Huong was not well enough to continue with the trial on Thursday, and adjourned proceedings until April 1. Ms Huong, who arrived at court in a bulletproof vest and red headscarf, has already been on trial for a year and a half.

At its heart lies three new documents meant to provide additional legal guarantees that the United Kingdom can't be trapped indefinitely inside the backstop arrangement. As said by Mrs May last week, rejecting her deal could lead anywhere - including not leaving the European Union at all.

Speaking at a late night press conference in Strasbourg following talks with EU Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, May said: "The deal that MPs voted on in January was not strong enough in making that clear - and legally binding changes were needed to set that right".

They have been demanding that the agreement does not keep the United Kingdom locked in the Irish backstop - an insurance policy to guarantee no return to a hard border in Ireland - indefinitely. So, in short, the deal will probably be rejected on Tuesday-though never say never, particularly due to the complexity of the alternatives.

"There should be no lingering doubts: this deal will leave us trapped and surrenders our sovereignty".

Tusk also said the European Union would consider a "reasoned request" from London for an extension of article 50, but only with "credible justification".

The main sticking point is a measure to ensure the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland remains open, a key issue for Varadkar's government.
