Cabinet ministers now believe Theresa May is preparing to resign as British Prime Minister this summer so she can influence who succeeds her, The Sun newspaper reported https://bit.ly/2BwWkzr on Monday.

"It's clear from our side that we're not going to reopen the Withdrawal Agreement, but we will continue our discussion in the coming days", Barnier told reporters after the meeting.

"Further delay is unlikely to be welcomed by business, however, the Prime Minister appears determined to push her deal to the wire, given the lack of a parliamentary majority for any other options", said Michael Hewson, analyst at CMC Markets.

Notorious Mexican drug cartel boss 'El Chapo' found guilty in U.S. trial
Once the jury left the room, he and his wife Emma Coronel, put their hands to their hearts and gave each other the thumbs up sign. Notorious drug lord El Chapo is set to die in jail after being convicted of running the world's largest drug smuggling operation.

In excerpts released before her statement, May says: "The talks are at a crucial stage". "By getting the changes we need to the backstop; by protecting and enhancing workers' rights and environmental protections and by enhancing the role of parliament in the next phase of negotiations, I believe we can reach a deal that this House can support".

Jack Dromey, the Labour MP whose cross-party amendment with Conservative Caroline Spelman to block a no-deal Brexit was passed by the House of Commons on January 29, said he is waiting until after May speaks Tuesday before deciding whether to propose another.

Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to tell MPs today to hold their nerve in the UK's game of brinksmanship with the European Union over Brexit.

May responded that she wanted negotiations "settled before Christmas" and said the best way to end uncertainty was "with a deal".
