Leader of 1922 committee tells Theresa May to delay Brexit deal vote

The British currency hit a 1-1/2 year low earlier this week as May battles to get the Brexit deal she negotiated with the European Union through parliament in a vote scheduled for Tuesday with the treaty facing heavy opposition from lawmakers both for and against Britain leaving the bloc.

But on Thursday, Giancarlo said the European Union needed to provide greater clarity on the details of that arrangement, including which products would be included and how long the arrangement would last.

But having spent decades on the sidelines suffering habitual defeat and enduring mild ridicule, it is the "Paleosceptics" who are most eager for their vision of Brexit to be finally realised, whatever the cost.

Predicting that France will use this advantage to "plunder" United Kingdom fishing waters, Spain will "make another push for Gibraltar" and Germany will demand concessions on migration, the former foreign secretary said: "It is quite incredible that any government could agree to such terms".

Mrs May faced calls to postpone Tuesday's vote, with senior Conservative MP Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the backbench 1922 Committee, saying he would welcome the vote being deferred if no solution could be found to differences within the party over the backstop.

He said: "What we are trying to achieve is something that gets a lot of support from colleagues and that the Government, we hope, will take forward because it will make a real difference to the vote". But this is 2018 and if the defeat is heavy enough it can not be totally ruled out.

Elsewhere, the research also found very little appetite for a General Election, with 84.7% of respondents not in favour of such an outcome. "Those should include Labour's alternative and, as our conference decided in September, the option of campaigning for a public vote to break the deadlock".

However, the transition period could be extended for a maximum of two more years. "She would need to lose by less than 50 MPs (lawmakers) to keep in office probably".

The agreement allows Altria to nominate four directors to Cronos' board of directors, including one independent director. Cronos is a leading player in Canada's cannabis industry, which received full nationwide legalization earlier this year.


In one small potential change, May said she was speaking to lawmakers about giving parliament a bigger role in deciding whether to trigger a so-called Northern Irish backstop.

"Nevertheless, as a responsible Government, we have a duty to plan for all scenarios".

DUP leader Arlene Foster, whose party opposes Mrs May's deal, warned that the amendment would not be enough, tweeting: "Domestic legislative tinkering won't cut it".

It is meant to ensure there is no return to a hard border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and EU-member Ireland.

"People have a concern of the backstop, that we could be in it indefinitely".

Even if the upcoming vote failed, the UK PM would have a chance to develop a new deal with better terms; if she doesn't manage to do, so she would also have to stand down, the Daily Telegraph reported, citing Cabinet ministers.

Theresa May and the Queen face uncertain times.

The preparations for bringing Theresa May down in the event that the Brexit deal fails have already started, as Labor members of Parliament are looking for an opportunity in cooperation with Tories and the northern Ireland-based Democratic Unionist Party to conduct a vote against Theresa's leadership, according to The Times.
