UK PM May: Rejecting Brexit would be catastrophic

Mr Farage made the comments after it was revealed that Remainers are plotting to overturn Parliamentary protocol in efforts to stop the United Kingdom leaving on WTO terms should Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal be voted down on Tuesday - which is the most likely scenario.

She now is urging Parliament to support it so Britain doesn't leave the European Union on March 29 without a deal, which would threaten trade, jobs and economic growth.

He also said he would table a motion of no confidence in the government "soon" if Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal is rejected by parliament on Tuesday, as is widely expected.

But if Britain were still in the union when the new European Parliament meets in July then the United Kingdom could be expected to provide members.

"I think it's now looking much less likely that parliament would allow a no-deal outcome", he told the BBC.

The European commission will publish a letter on Monday giving fresh assurances on the temporary status of the Irish backstop in a hope to win over some MPs to the deal but EU officials are downplaying expectations.

"To heal our nation, we need to provide a positive narrative that actually addresses the inequalities that have been allowed to ferment over recent years, rather than follow through with bogus solution that worsens them".

But he indicated May is not ready junk her deal if it's rejected.

Theresa May will put her EU Withdrawal Deal to the House of Commons on Tuesday and if she loses, a vote of no confidence could quickly take place.

Grayling's comments came after Northern Ireland Secretary Karen Bradley warned a no-deal exit would create a "feeling of unrest".

The Brexiteer said the millions who voted for Brexit would feel "cheated" if the United Kingdom did not exit the EU.

A cross-party group of senior backbenchers including former Conservative ministers are said to be planning a "very British coup" if the Prime Minister loses Tuesday's meaningful vote.

It says Downing Street believes the move would enable MPs to suspend Article 50 - putting Brexit on hold and could even lead to the referendum result being overturned.

The British parliament will act to stop a no deal Brexit from happening, Vince Cable, the leader of the pro-EU Liberal Democrats, said on Sunday.

Mr Blackford said: "I think everyone now knows that there is no such thing as a "good Brexit", there's no such thing as a "jobs-first Brexit", as some have claimed".

He said: "We will keep the £39bn and spend it as we see fit".

It was not possible for the minority Tory administration to control what happened in parliament, and Speaker John Bercow had shown that he was "willing to frustrate the government at every opportunity", he said.

MPs must take control of the House of Commons and ensure that a no-deal Brexit is avoided, the SNP's Westminster leader has said. A narrower defeat and the bloc may look at fresh ways of making the agreement more palatable to get it across the line in Parliament.
