May struggles with voice as she stresses 'Brexit may be lost'



The Prime Minister was supported in the Commons by her husband Philip, who was watching his wife from the public gallery, as her deal appeared on the verge of a fatal collapse despite her warning rebels that Britain may never leave the EU. Mrs May, who is losing her voice after her late night rescue mission to Strasbourg last night, said: ‘A lot of focus has been on the legal changes – but if this vote does not pass Brexit could be lost’.

Theresa May defends Brexit backstop in the Commons after delayed vote



With the PM’s position looking increasingly precarious, Boris Johnson (top left) and Sajid Javid (top second right) are among the senior figures on manoeuvres for a looming contest. Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt (bottom left) is also thought to be staking his claim for the top job should Mrs May be ousted. Both ex-Brexit Secretaries Dominic Raab (top second left) and David Davis (bottom second right), Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg (bottom right) Environment Secretary Michael Gove (top right) and Mrs May’s deputy David Lidington (bottom right) are also thought to be in the mix. The jostling comes as the premier fights for her political life on the eve of a crunch Commons vote on her Brexit deal. Mrs May is locked in intense talks with allies and aides as they try to find a way through the dire situation.

Full Interview: Prime Minister Theresa May – BBC News



Theresa May says she “is talking to colleagues” about their concerns over the Northern Ireland “backstop” ahead of a crucial vote on her EU deal.

She suggested MPs could be “given a role” in deciding whether to activate the backstop, which is designed to stop the return of a physical border.

But she told the BBC there could be no deal with the EU without it.
No 10 has said the Commons vote will go ahead on Tuesday, despite claims it could be delayed to avoid defeat.

And in another development, the European Court of Justice said it would deliver a ruling on Monday on whether the UK could unilaterally cancel Brexit by reversing Article 50 – the day before the MPs’ crunch vote.

Mrs May told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme she had not given up on winning the vote on her Brexit deal – negotiated over the past 18 months or so – despite dozens of her own MPs and all opposition parties being against it.

She said she recognised concerns about the Northern Ireland border backstop keeping the UK tied to the EU indefinitely.

And she conceded the UK would have “no unilateral right” to pull out of the backstop under her EU withdrawal agreement – but she said the UK would have a choice over whether or not to enter into it.

“The backstop is something nobody wants to go into in the first place, and we will be working to make sure that we don’t go into it,” she said.

“If we get to the point where it might be needed, we have a choice as to what we do, so we don’t even have to go into the backstop at that point.”

Brexit ‘may bring difficult times’ says Theresa May – BBC News



Britain needs to be prepared for some “difficult times” ahead as it leaves the European Union, Prime Minister Theresa May has said.
Speaking to the Andrew Marr Show – in her first major interview since taking office – Mrs May warned Brexit would not be “plain sailing” for the UK. She said formal EU talks will not begin until 2017, but vowed the process would not be “kicked into the long grass”. Mrs May also ruled out a snap election, saying the UK needs “stability”.
