UK Government Minister Quits Over Brexit

Britain's May faces growing calls to delay Brexit | Bangkok Post: news Brexit: Parliament to decide between no deal and delay
Leonard Rios | 02 March, 2019, 06:58

If there's evidence that this will help get May's withdrawal deal over the line, much will depend on Germany, where lawmakers have expressed support for an extension of a few months.

If there is a deal, there will be no change for citizens and businesses until at least the end of 2020. A calendar of voting in three phases at the House of Commons has been set.

It's fair to say that the prospect of a "no-deal" Brexit did not look appetizing though some of the keenest Brexit supporters in the U.K. Parliament insist that the warnings are just another element of "Project Fear" to dissuade Britain from leaving the EU.

The UK scheduled departure date from the European Union is still 29 March - but that could be delayed if Theresa May fails to get her deal through Parliament in a vote she has promised will take place on or before 12 March.

THERESA MAY lost her second minister in 48 hours over Brexit yesterday as George Eustice walked out blaming Britain's "final humiliation".

May does not want to delay Brexit but altered her strategy after several cabinet ministers warned they would not accept a "no deal" exit.

MPs also voted by 324 votes to 288 against a Scottish National Party motion to avoid "no deal".

Labour MP John Mann, who has led talks between his party's members and the Government, said dozens of colleagues were against Jeremy Corbyn's plan for a second referendum and could back Mrs May's plan - if ministers offer enough reassurances.

DEBATE: Is Labour's support for second referendum a good political move?
It came as MPs voted to endorse Theresa May's Brexit strategy - but only after she made a series of concessions. Just 204 of the party's 313 MPs who were eligible to vote backed the measure.

Senators trade centre Matt Duchene to Columbus for prospects, pick
The first major domino to fall was the Ottawa Senators trading Matt Duchene to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday. However, it's shocking to see the Blue Jackets acquire another Senators forward.

Traders backed off forecasts for a no-deal Brexit and began to expect a delay of the departure date beyond the current March 29 deadline.

Britain is a member of the World Trade Organization so tariffs and other terms governing its trade with the European Union would be set under WTO rules.

In one of its last acts before the general election which has been called on 28 April, the Spanish government is to introduce a decree outlining contingency plans for a hard Brexit on 29 March, including measures to make life relatively easy for British residents in this country including those who are now without permanent residency status.

Governments in European Union countries, as well as in Britain, have warned citizens and businesses to prepare for potential disruption to trade and travel as tariffs, customs checks and other barriers are erected between Britain and its biggest trading partner. Sounds like the inevitable outcome of one of those E-Mail adverts that us blokes get from time to time, doesn't it?

"Today, we need above all a decision, it's more important than extra time", Barnier told a news conference in Vienna, adding that the Brexit process stood at a "grave moment".

Does anyone really think that the European Union is just going to undo all their Brexit preps and put all the previous procedures in place so we can have an extra couple of weeks grace time?

A string of Brexiteer MPs, including Jacob Rees-Mogg, softened their demands this week, suggesting they could back Mrs May's deal provided Mr Cox returns with legally-binding changes that mean the United Kingdom cannot be trapped in a customs union indefinitely.
