The changes sought by Mrs May is convince MP's to vote through a Brexit deal in the House of Commons.

The week ahead will also see May speak to every European Union leader and Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, as she desperately seeks changes to the withdrawal agreement with fewer than 40 days until the UK's scheduled exit.

Stephen Barclay will finally hold talks with the European Union today on a "plan C" Brexit hatched by Leave and Remain Tories.

On Tuesday, Cox is due to set out what changes would be required to eliminate that risk.

May stressed that if the parliament fails to adopt a Brexit deal, it will let down the United Kingdom citizens it represents.

The Irish government will not be "steamrolled" into making concessions on the backstop Simon Coveney has warned the British government.

The issue of the backstop, in which the whole of the United Kingdom would remain in customs union with the EU if a new trading relationship isn't in place after the transition period ends, has dogged May in the Brexit negotiations from the outset - and is the main reason cited by MPs for not backing her deal. I believe that a country with our innate strengths, enviable resources, and enormous talent can face the future with confidence that our best days lie ahead.

If latest reports are anything to go by, the Zoya Akhtar-directed film Gully Boy is being considered for a remake down South. That would be superb for Zoya Akhtar as this is her comparatively more massy film when compared to her earlier outings.

She reiterated that without a Withdrawal Agreement the United Kingdom risks a "combination forming in Parliament that will stop Brexit altogether, whatever the long-term consequences for trust in our democracy". "So I call on the government and MPs across parliament to end the Brexit uncertainty and back Labour's credible alternative plan".

Mrs May also warned the United Kingdom could leave without a deal or an implementation period if Parliament fails to unite behind a plan.

"The attorney general shared his thinking in terms of the legal way forward and how we address the central issue of.the legal underpinning that is temporary and his advice to parliament in terms of the indefinite nature of the backstop", Barclay said.

"If EU/Republic of Ireland refuses then we are heading for no deal".

Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright told the BBC there were "a number of different ways" around the problem, adding: "I don't think it's the mechanism that matters, it's the objective".

In the letter to her fractious colleagues, excerpts of which were released by Downing Street late Saturday, May urged the party to "move beyond what divides us".
