Leaders arrive for crunch EU Council talks with Theresa May | Brexit LIVE



THERESA May is set to ask the EU for a short Brexit delay today as Brits are “fed up” with politicians’ dithering more than 1,000 days after they voted OUT.

In a sign that the PM is confident she can get her deal pushed through on the third time, officials said today she won’t be asking for a long delay to add more wasted time to the process.

A No10 official said: “PM won’t be asking for a long extension.

“There is a case for giving Parliament a bit more time to agree a way forward, but the people of this country have been waiting nearly three years now.

“They are fed up with Parliament’s failure to take a decision and the PM shares their frustration.”

A long extension could have been up to three YEARS – with a break clause if a deal is finally done…

Theresa May secures legally binding Brexit deal, so what makes this proposal different? | ABC News



UK Prime Minister Theresa May has clinched legally binding Brexit assurances from the European Union in a last-ditch attempt to win over rebellious British MPs who had threatened to vote down her divorce deal again.

The changes ensured the EU could not “try to trap the UK” in the so-called Irish backstop indefinitely.

Corbyn scathes May's Brexit deal day before Parliament vote



THERESA May faces calls from leading Conservatives to quit tomorrow after failing to win any Brexit breakthrough in talks with the EU.

Nicky Morgan yesterday became the most senior Tory yet to say the PM must go if she loses the crunch Commons vote. MPs are expected to give her deal a drubbing tomorrow night.

She remains on standby to jet to Brussels at the 11th hour if her team of officials manage to agree any changes to the Withdrawal Agreement.

But despite British and EU officials working through the weekend sources in Brussels said the chances of any last minute progress were “pretty unlikely,” adding: “Nobody is really expecting anything to come of it.”

In a sign of the panic setting in No10, Mrs May has announced a special meeting of her Cabinet on Wednesday morning to discuss the fallout from tomorrow night’s vote…

Theresa May loses her voice at Brexit debate



THERESA May faces a moment of truth today after finally securing changes to her Brexit deal hours before MPs vote on it.

The PM won last-minute tweaks to the Irish backstop plan which she says will stop Britain being tied to the EU.

But it’s still not clear whether or not the fix will be enough to convince rebel Brexiteers they should support her in tonight’s crunch vote.

This evening the House of Commons will vote for a second time on whether or not to approve Mrs May’s deal.

If she wins, Britain will be on track to leave the EU with a deal in 17 days’ time.

But if the deal falls, MPs are then likely to delay Brexit by up to three months in a further vote scheduled for later this week.

Senior Brexiteers such as Jacob Rees-Mogg and Iain Duncan Smith warned the jury is still out and refused to say how they will vote tonight…
