Industry frustrated by late warning on 'no deal' Brexit disruption

EU Court Ruling on UK Right to Reverse Brexit Expected Dec. 10 May rejects plea to delay Brexit vote
Lloyd Bates | 14 December, 2018, 11:17

Johnson led the charge in criticising the Brexit deal at the start of five days of debate on Tuesday, saying Britain would become the EU's "de facto colony".

Last week, the U.S. Federal Reserve said that a no-deal Brexit posed near-term risk to the U.S. financial system by disrupting cross-border financial services arrangements and potentially undermining confidence in the euro zone's fiscal and financial prospects.

Mr Hammond confirmed that HM Revenue and Customs sent out 145,000 letters on Tuesday to companies now exporting to the European Union, explaining extra measures they may have to take under no-deal circumstances.

In one small potential change, May said she was speaking to lawmakers about giving parliament a bigger role in deciding whether to trigger a so-called Northern Irish backstop. The House of Commons leader Andrea Leadsom also told Parliament the vote would go ahead on Tuesday.

In next weeks episode, reviewing the aftermath of the vote on Theresa May's deal, Brexit The Final Countdown will be joined by leading Brexit campaigner Richard Tice and leading businessman Lance Forman.

Three weeks ago, the Prime Minister finally reached a deal with the European institutions on Brexit, which included prerogatives on issues as varied as the rights and obligations of the EU citizens staying in the United Kingdom after the country leaves the bloc and the border situation between the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

"Of course we can improve this deal and the prime minister is seeking to improve this deal", Gove said.

Senior ministers have called on her to delay the vote as dozens of Tories as well as Northern Ireland's DUP have said they will vote against. In an ironic twist, her constant resilience mirrors that of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, her fiercest opponent in Parliament (at least when looking across the floor), who has also survived countless plots against his leadership.

Meanwhile, the EU's Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has insisted that the agreement with Theresa May is the only deal on offer.

Industries dependent on trade with the European Union would either have to "significantly lower their costs" to offset the burden of additional frictions, look for new markets or shift capital and labour into other areas of activity, he said.

Mrs May said: "We have delivered a deal that honours the vote of the British people".

May says most people "want us to get on with it", and that it's important for ministers speak with communities to explain how her Brexit deal "works for them".

On the issue of the backstop, Mr Barnier said: "It is a legally operational form of insurance that will ensure that we never see the return of a hard border, that we have north-south co-operation on the island of Ireland and that we protect the integrity of the single market. It is a vote in which the future of their country is at stake".

It is meant to ensure there is no return to a hard border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and EU-member Ireland.

The Chancellor later told MPs that the "economy has always been at the heart of the UK's relationship with Europe" and warned that a no-deal Brexit would "destroy" much of the 45-year-old trading relationship overnight.
