If There is No Brexit Deal: European Citizens Retain Their Rights

Theresa May' words come after she offered MPs a vote on delaying Brexit

Theresa May' words come after she offered MPs a vote on delaying Brexit

Still not clear on where things stand on Brexit?

Irish drivers have been warned they will need a special insurance document to cross the now invisible border to Northern Ireland after next month if the United Kingdom leaves the European Union without a deal.

Britain's main opposition Labour Party has said it could support a second Brexit referendum as the European Union opened the door to postponing the country's exit from the bloc beyond the 29 March deadline.

It also bodes ill for so-called "remainer" Britons hoping they might halt the whole process.

The junior minister at the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) said in his resignation letter to the Prime Minister that he wanted to be "free to participate in the critical debate that will take place in the weeks ahead".

"The UK has had nearly two years to make up its mind". If it is rejected they will then have the chance to back a no-deal Brexit on March 13.

Shadow justice secretary Richard Burgon suggested there was more time for the party to push for its own version of Brexit before being forced to back another referendum. "People are fed up".

May this week agreed to allow MPs to vote for a delay to Brexit beyond March 29 if her deal is again rejected by Parliament.

Under May's proposals, she will have two more weeks to try to win concessions from the European Union over the so-called "backstop" clause to keep the Irish border open in all scenarios.

This signals OnePlus' intent to compete with rivals but their decision to scoff at wireless charging seems a little perplexing. However, this year many phone makers adopted wireless charging, switching to glass backs on their phones to enable it.

Some pro-Brexit lawmakers, who fear delaying Brexit day could be used to try to stop Britain's withdrawal altogether, abstained from the vote.

Speaking after meeting Kurz in Vienna, chief EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said any delay "must serve not to put off the problem but to resolve the problem" in the British Parliament. The amendment lost by 83 votes. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was softer, saying Berlin would not refuse Britain more time.

"So our goal has to be that the exit, if it has to happen, happens in an orderly fashion", he added.

But he said the European Union had made it "very clear" that the text of the withdrawal agreement will not be reopened.

"We continue to see the most likely outcome of the current impasse as eventual ratification of the prime minister's Brexit deal, with a three-month extension of Article 50", Goldman Sachs said.

Members of parliament voted 432-202 on January 15 to reject her deal, the biggest parliamentary defeat for a government in modern British history, and then on January 29 insisted she renegotiate the Irish border backstop.

Some EU officials fear that a lack of British EU lawmakers might risk legal challenges to any EU decision taken after that. "An extension of a couple of months would be relatively straightforward". But that may be a tall order for the Europeans.

But they still believe parliament will eventually sign off the deal struck between May and the European Union, despite the agreement being voted down by MPs in January in a crushing defeat for the government.
