May to address parliament on Brexit: oppn

A report by Bloomberg said that United Kingdom prime minister had called off the crucial vote, which was why she called for an emergency meeting with her cabinet. The BBC's political editor Laura Kuenssberg quickly reported the same thing.

The pound also saw its position against the euro eroded further, with it falling to €1.1074 - representing its lower level since September. Although May has so far ruled out taking the question back to the people of Britain, some of her more loyal ministers are already planning for just such a scenario, the Sunday Times said.

"One scenario is that the May wants to avoid an embarrassing defeat. another is that she may be very close to securing agreement from the European Union [with further negotiation] so sterling could still move either way from here", he said.

Dozens of arch-Brexiteers, led by a hardline backbencher, Jacob Rees-Mogg, believe no deal would be preferable to the current plan that keeps the country tied closer to the bloc.

"The vote is going ahead" as planned, a spokesman for the prime minister said, adding that any other suggestions were "speculation".

May said Britain "would truly be in uncharted waters" if the draft struck after almost two years of tough talks is voted down less than four months before the March 29 Brexit date.

A spokeswoman for the court said any revocation "must be decided following a democratic process in accordance with national constitutional requirements".

Opposition Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn was quoted as saying that May's Brexit deal is "so disastrous" that her government "has taken the desperate step of delaying its own vote at the eleventh hour". We will not renegotiate the deal that is on the table right now.

But analysts said sterling's weakness on Monday reflected deepening uncertainty as well as concerns about May's future as prime minister.

A jury found Fields, of OH , deliberately rammed his vehicle into a crowd after the " Unite the Right " rally on August 12, 2017. Her death came after police forced the rally to disband after participants had clashed with counterdemonstrators earlier.

In the event of rejection, the government will have 21 days to indicate what it intends to do.

Theresa May's Brexit deal looks set to be put to the vote on Tuesday, the culmination of a heated five-day debate in Westminster.

But it could also trigger a general election, a leadership challenge or even a second referendum.

Should the Prime Minister not secure a victory in the vote, then interest will turn to the numbers.

The prime minister's comments came as her government was hit by another resignation over the Brexit plan.

"We have a common determination to do everything to be not in a situation one day to use that backstop, but we have to prepare", he said. The second would ask voters to choose between leaving the European Union and remaining, but with a supplementary question if the Leave camp wins - would they prefer the existing deal or a Brexit on World Trade Organization terms?

Some MPs are pressing for a second referendum on Brexit.

The European Court of Justice could inject still more drama into the Brexit endgame when it rules on Monday whether Britain can unilaterally halt its split from the bloc.
