Northern Irish DUP edges towards backing UK PM's Brexit deal

MPs also rejected a call to hold a second Brexit referendum - a blow to the hopes of a large number of Britons who still dream of keeping their European identity. On Tuesday, she failed to attract any more of the Labour MPs who represent constituencies that voted leave in the 2016 referendum, beyond the three who voted for her deal in January. She hopes to use the threat of a longer delay to Brexit to persuade eurosceptics in her party to back her.

Labour plans to whip its MPs to vote for the amendment, which the two backbenchers will table on this week's Meaningful Vote.

With the March 29, 2019 date for Brexit looming and no deal to address the separation yet approved, the House of Commons voted on March 14, 2019, to defer Brexit until at least June 30, 2019.

"She's been working tirelessly to deliver a deal and she will continue to do that", her spokesman said.

Even if the deadline is unanimously agreed, the Prime Minister will still need to get a deal through the Houses of Commons, which is now divided on the matter of the Irish back-stop.

Even if May manages to pull victory from the jaws of defeat, she has already waved the white flag as regards her long-planned ambition of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union on March 29.

Originally, Corbyn had been against the idea of the second vote, yet with the abrupt exit of eight members of Labour, the leader favoured the referendum. The government then let MPs vote on whether or not they wanted to leave the European Union without a deal (they didn't), followed by a further vote asking them if they wanted to extend Article 50, which facilitates the departure process, until the summer ( they did).

He told Germany's Funke newspaper "as long as this isn't clear, Brexit can only be delayed for a few weeks, exclusively to avoid a chaotic withdrawal" on March 29.

Speaking on a visit to Paris, Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said "everyone would welcome" MPs approving the deal and Brexit being briefly pushed back to get the necessary legislation through. "I believe in the situation we are in a extension would be rational", said Tusk in a press conference.

Support for Mrs May is at a similarly low ebb among Government ministers, with one Cabinet source telling The Telegraph that "there are only two ministers in the Cabinet who still support her".

"If the proposal were to go back to square one and negotiate a new deal, that would mean a much longer extension - nearly certainly requiring the United Kingdom to participate in the European Parliament elections in May", she said in an article in the Sunday Telegraph. An extension of article 50 will require unanimous support from the 27 leaders.
