UK's May under pressure to rule out long Brexit delay

British Prime Minister Theresa May risks the "total collapse" of her government if she fails to get her battered Brexit deal through parliament, the Sunday Times newspaper says, amid growing speculation that she might call an early election.

A letter signed by 170 of the 314 Conservative lawmakers in Parliament, including 10 Cabinet ministers, was sent to Mrs May after her Brexit deal was rejected for a third time by the House of Commons on Friday (March 29), the newspaper reported.

May had told lawmakers that the vote was the last opportunity to ensure Brexit execution and warned that if the deal failed, then any further delay to Brexit would probably be a long one beyond April 12.

It follows defeats by even wider margins in January and March, and leaves the government's blueprint for exiting the bloc in tatters.

Morgan told the BBC that a cross-party coalition might be the only way to break the deadlock if Parliament were to agree on an alternative and May refused to accept it.

She told Today: "There have been periods in our history when we have had national unity governments or a coalition for a very specific issue". But critics point out that such coalitions were forged when there was a single goal - such as defeating Nazi Germany.

An "alternative way forward" would have to be found, May said, threatening hard-Brexit MPs that anything other than her agreement reached with the EU was "almost certain" to involve British participation in the European elections. That has led to concerns about crippling tariffs, border gridlock and shortages of food and medicines.

"In view of the rejection of the Withdrawal Agreement by the House of Commons, I have made a decision to call a European Council on 10 April", EC President Donald Tusk wrote.

Two ideas - a customs union with the EU and a second referendum on any deal - have received significant support ahead of another round of votes this week.

NEWS 1130 spoke with Scanlan back in June of 2016, to find out how he was going to vote, and how he thought the rest of Britain would vote. Over the past three years, it has become fairly clear that Brexit will damage, not improve, the health of the United Kingdom economy.

The European Commission responded by saying a "No-deal scenario on 12 April is now likely", adding that the benefits of the Withdrawal Agreement would not be replicated under such circumstances.

"Parliament will continue this process on Monday and we've got to look at all the options". The Brexiteer politician insisted the British political system had proved to be "incapable of delivering" the results of the referendum and vowed to "revolutionise" national politics.

The 650-seat lower house of Parliament has voted overwhelmingly against a no-deal Brexit but its view is non-binding.

She made the offer to win over members of her Conservative Party who support a more decisive break with the European Union than her deal offers.

The decision to reject a stripped-down version of May's divorce deal has left it totally unclear how, when or even whether Britain will leave the European Union, and plunges the three-year Brexit crisis to a deeper level of uncertainty.

"I think the deal is the right way to do that".
