PM Theresa May says the 'biggest threat' is the Labour Party



The Prime Minister has been told to her face that for Brexiteers including Boris Johnson to support her deal she will need to promise Tory MPs she will quit before the second stage of EU talks begin later this year. Mrs May will address Tories at a meeting of the backbench 1922 Committee tonight and is expected to be asked to announce her departure date by disgruntled MPs. Today senior Brexiteer Andrea Leadsom did little to quell the rumours of Mrs May’s demise and said: I am fully supporting the Prime Minister to get us out of the EU. What happens after that is a matter for the prime minister’. Jacob Rees-Mogg today urged other hardline Eurosceptics to back Mrs May or face losing Brexit with 20 or more hardcore Brexiteers including Boris Johnson ready to swing behind her if she agrees to quit tonight. Mr Rees-Mogg admits that his change of heart will prompt accusations of treachery from some of his followers but told them: ‘Half a loaf is better than no bread’. Tonight MPs will try to grab the levers of power and push Britain towards a softer Brexit by voting on alternatives to Theresa May’s deal and today the rebellion’s architect Sir Oliver Letwin said the Commons will change the law to force the PM to implement their views. Former Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell said today: ‘Oliver Letwin has played a blinder. My friends and colleagues in the ERG can see the instruments of torture laid out in front of them. Oliver has shown them what will happen if they don’t come on side. Finally Mrs May has most of us on side on her deal, and with a following wind she will get her deal this week or early next week’.

Theresa May Rules Out Second EU Referendum!



In a bid to rescue her Brexit credentials, the Prime Minister, Theresa May, has ruled out a second EU referendum under any circumstances.

According to senior political correspondent for Sky News, Beth Rigby, a spokesman for the Prime Minister has ruled out a second EU referendum.

“PM spokesman says there will not be a second referendum “under any circumstances”. There wasn’t going to be a snap election either was there. #JustSaying” she Tweeted.

This is of course in response to a call made earlier by former cabinet minister Justine Greening for a second – three question – EU referendum based on either: taking the Chequers deal, staying in the EU or leaving without a deal.

A stupid idea of course, because there’s nothing more likely to return a majority of less than 50% of voters submitting valid ballot papers than a referendum with more than a binary choice.

What would they do if this were to take place and Remain got 49% and the other two choices shared the remaining 51% equally? Claim a win against the 2016 52% majority? How would that go down?

Greening’s argument is that parliament has just about reached an impasse and the only way to free the constipation is to give it the laxative of a peoples’ vote.

Well, we did exactly that two years ago and the Remain led establishment worked hard to ensure that got all gummed up, so I strongly suspect they would do exactly the same again until the electorate buckled under to give the ‘right’ answer.

And the lead up to a second referendum would only be fear-mongering politics on steroids from the Remain side.

Scott Mann resigned putting more pressure on Theresa May.

And the Mail quotes what they call a ‘senior Eurosceptic’ as saying:

“There is a cold fury about Boris, which is unusual for him. He is totally fed up with Mrs May because he feels he’s been tricked. No10 have put it about that David Davis’s resignation forced him to follow suit. But that isn’t the case. He felt she hadn’t been a straight dealer and he had to go.”

Moving on, you may hear today that fewer EU citizens are coming to the UK looking for work, which the left is portraying as a bad sign and indications of a slowing economy.

But today’s migration report from the Office for National Statistics actually says:

“EU net migration continues to add to the UK population with around 100,000 more EU citizens coming to the UK than leaving. The estimated number of EU citizens coming to the UK “looking for work” continued to decrease over the last year and the number coming to the UK for a definite job has remained stable.”

So the number of those coming speculatively has fallen. But the numbers with a job to come to are about the same as before.

And an ONS statistician commented in the press release:

“With around 280,000 more people coming to the UK than leaving in 2017, these latest figures show that migration has continued to add to the UK population. Net migration fell following record levels in 2015 and early 2016 and has been broadly stable since. This is similar to the level recorded in year ending September 2014.

“Underlying this immigration has remained broadly stable at around 630,000 and emigration has shown a gradual increase since 2015 and is currently at around 350,000.”

Now, surely amongst those 630,000 people coming in to the UK there are sufficient doctors, nurses, teachers, engineers, builders, plumbers and electricians to fulfil our needs and replace the 350,000 leaving? Or would it make more sense to replace as required on a more one for one basis? Just asking.

Theresa May says it is a 'moment of decision' as Brexit is delayed



Theresa May insisted tonight it was the ‘moment of decision’ for MPs as she accepted EU terms for delaying Brexit by at least two weeks. EU Council President Donald Tusk confirmed plans for a two-stage delay plan. If Mrs May passes her deal at a third attempt next week, Britain will be allowed to stay in the EU until May 22. If she fails, Britain must say whether it will take part in the EU elections by April 12. If elections take place, a longer delay could be agreed – but if the polls are not held then No Deal looms because Britain staying in becomes impossible. The agreement avoids the need for an emergency EU summit as soon as next week. EU sources told Sky News the plan ‘reduces the likelihood of a chaotic crash out in the next 7 days, or a 24 hour scramble to find an alternative.’ In a press conference held after midnight in Brussels, Mrs May said she would return to Britain in the morning to resume work on building support for the deal. Most in Westminster believe she is doomed to fail a third time. She insisted Britain should still leave in an ‘orderly fashion’ with a deal despite MPs rejecting it twice by a landslide. Amid fury at her tirade against MPs last night, Mrs May admitted to expressing her ‘frustration’ at the situation – insisting politicians on all sides had ‘passionately held views’ – but stopped short of apologising.

Theresa May dismisses petition calling on her to revoke Article 50



At a press conference in Brussels this evening, Donald Tusk said the EU had agreed an extension to Brexit to May 22 if MPs approve Theresa May’s exit plan. But if MPs vote it down next week, Britain will have until April 12 to say what it will do next. At the end of the short announcement Donald Tusk was asked  whether a ‘special place in hell’ should be reserved for Brexiteers who don’t vote for May’s deal. Mr Tusk responded: ‘According to the pope hell is empty. It means there are a lot of spaces.’ The press conference was then ended by an aide, but not before Mr Juncker shouted ‘Don’t go to hell.’ – as the EU leaders urged Brexiteers to back Mrs May.

Jacob Rees-Mogg says he is thinking of backing May's Brexit deal



The Commons Speaker cited a 400-year-old Commons precedent to inflict an extraordinary blow to Mrs May’s hopes of getting her EU divorce through Parliament unless it is ‘substantially’ changed. Mrs May had planned to go to Brussels on Thursday and apply for a ‘long’ Brexit delay unless MPs show they are ready to back her deal by Tuesday night. Now Mr Bercow used a precedent from April 1604 – used 12 times in the Commons since then – to warn the PM that she must significantly change her deal if she wants to force another vote on it before March 29. It means that if Mrs May wants to force MPs into another vote after the EU Brussels summit this week she will have to ask Mr Bercow, who would have the final say on whether it goes ahead. The Speaker, who gave an urgent statement without telling No 10 first, said: ‘If the Government wishes to bring forward a new proposition that is neither the same or substantially the same as that disposed of by the House on March 12, that would be entirely in order. What the Government cannot legitimately do is resubmit to the House the same proposition or substantially the same proposition that was rejected by 149 votes’. Unless Mrs May can make an acceptable change, the Speaker’s intervention means the PM’s deal will be killed off with No Deal or a long-term delay to Brexit the most likely options.
