Why evacuation plans are being made for Queen Elizabeth

The failure of Britain's government so far to negotiate a smooth exit plan from the European Union has made car manufacturers less willing to use Britain as a European manufacturing centre

Writing in "The Sunday Telegraph", she said she would return to Brussels with a "fresh mandate, new ideas and a renewed determination".

"If he has been shown this, I think we'd all love to see it".

The backstop is meant to ensure there is no return to a hard border with Ireland, but Brexit supporters fear it will keep Britain tied to the EU's customs rules.

Also joining the chorus of European Union leaders who have moved to reject the prospect of cooperating with the United Kingdom on Monday was Brexit chief negotiator Michel Barnier who repeated the well-rehearsed talking point that the deal on the table is the "only operational solution available". Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union on March 29, but United Kingdom politicians are divided over Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan.

Over the weekend, Japan's Nissan said it had decided not to build the X-Trail model at its existing United Kingdom plant in Sunderland, England, canceling plans announced two years ago after May's government made undisclosed concessions created to ensure the carmaker's ability to compete after Brexit.

While Merkel said she did not want the so-called Withdrawal Agreement renegotiated, she added that hard questions could be resolved with creativity, the strongest hint to date that the EU's most powerful leader could be prepared to compromise.

The plans were originally meant to be put into action in the event of a nuclear attack from the erstwhile Soviet Union, "The Sunday Times" reported.

The prime minister rejected accusations that plans to reopen the backstop talks risked upsetting the Irish peace process.

"These emergency evacuation plans have been in existence since the Cold War, but have now been repurposed in the event of civil disorder following a no-deal Brexit", the Cabinet Office source told The Sunday Times. It will continue producing three other models at the Sunderland plant, which employs 7,000 people.

The auto giant announced in 2016 that it planned to build its X-Trail model in Sunderland, but will now assemble it instead at Nissan's global production hub in Kyushu, Japan.

"If there were problems in London, clearly you would remove the royal family away from those key sites", said Dai Davies, the former head of royal protection at the Metropolitan Police.

The Brexit saga has driven a wedge in the heart of both major parties, pitting centrists against their more ideologically driven MPs.
