Bercow's NEW Brexit BOMBSHELL: Speaker throws May's deal into new chaos, It MUST change for new vote

House of Commons speaker John Bercow this afternoon threatened new Brexit chaos by throwing doubts over Theresa May’s efforts to get her deal through the Commons by Friday.

The Prime Minister has been considering announcing her resignation date this afternoon to win the support of Brexiteer rebel MPs in return for getting her EU divorce across the line at the third attempt.

But the Speaker warned the government today that her deal must have changed from the last time she brought it forward for a vote – and she cannot use a procedural device known as a ‘paving motion’ to get around him.

Bercow has already been accused of having Remainer sympathies and trying to thwart Britain leaving the EU.

May’s government insists that a new Brexit date agreed with the EU and clarifications to the backstop announced at a summit in Brussels amount to a ‘significant change’.

The Speaker alone will decide if the change is sufficient and is expected to announce the night before if he will block a third vote.

Mister Speaker says Prime Minister May cannot use a procedural device known as a ‘paving motion’ to get around him. Bercow has already been accused of having Remainer sympathies and trying to thwart Britain leaving the EU.

BREXIT: "Not enough support for third vote yet", PM May on brink hints at NEW REFERENDUM

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has finally hinted at a second Brexit referendum and admitted defeat on a third meaningful vote for her deal in a furious exchange with opposition MPs in the House of Commons.

May was speaking, for the first time, since she was in Brussels last week and the European Union admitted a Brexit delay.

May says she is ‘sceptical’ about whether allowing MPs indicative votes will produce decision.

May says the government is opposed to the Letwin amendment.

She says the government remains committed to trying to see if a Commons consensus can be reached if her deal is not passed.

But she says she is “sceptical” of this process. In the past when this procedure has been tried, it has produced contradictory conclusions, or no conclusions at all.



BREXIT CHAOS CLASH: Theresa May LOSES IT with Jeremy Corbyn on 30th June delay – 'It's a bit rich'

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has clashed with Jeremy Corbyn during Prime Minister’s Questions after she asked the European Union for a three-month Brexit delay.

The request comes exactly 1000 days after the referendum (on the 23rd June 2016), which delivered a 52 percent to 48 percent majority for leaving the European Union.

The two leaders are squaring-off in the House of Commons just hours before Mrs May travels to the latest European Council meeting in Brussels for yet more crunch Brexit talks. In a letter to European Council President Donald Tusk earlier today, the Prime Minister is believed to have asked for a three-month extension to June 30 in the hope of securing approval from MPs for her withdrawal agreement. A Downing Street source 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.



BREXIT: Theresa May hints she will QUIT if MPs don’t back her Brexit deal again (full PMQs)

UK Prime Minister Theresa May May has today hinted she will quit as Prime Minister if MPs don’t back her Brexit deal next week.

She confirmed she will bring her defeated agreement back for a third vote next week as she begged the EU for a three-month delay to Brexit.

In a sign that the PM is confident she can get her deal pushed through this time, she said she’s not prepared to put off our EU exit beyond June 30 – and she could go if she’s made to by Parliament or the EU.

And in a fiery rallying cry she blasted Brexiteers and Remainers for blocking her Brexit deal for weeks on end.

She told the House of Commons this lunchtime: “The outcome of a long extension would be endless hours and days of this house carrying on contemplating its navel on Europe.

“This house has indulged itself on Europe for too long. It’s time for this house to determine it will deliver on Brexit for the British people.

“That’s what they deserve. They deserve better than what this House has given them so far.”

Mrs May continued, “As Prime Minister I am not prepared to delay Brexit beyond June 30” – in a huge hint she could resign if she had to extend beyond that.

Instead she suggested Britain will crash out of the EU without a deal if one isn’t approved by then.

The PM wrote in a letter to EU boss Donald Tusk today that Brexit will “clearly not be completed before March 29, 2019.”

But she confirmed she’ll bring a third vote on the deal back to the Commons “as soon as possible”, vowing to “make the argument for the orderly withdrawal and strong future partnership the UK economy, its citizens’ security and the continent’s future, demands”.

Mrs May concluded: “In our legal system, the Government will need to take a bill through both Houses of Parliament to enact our commitments under the withdrawal agreement into domestic law.



BERCOW'S BREXIT BOMBSHELL: Mister Speaker BLOCKS Theresa May's third vote (full statement)

House of Commons Speaker John Bercow was today accused of sabotaging Theresa May’s Brexit deal after telling MPs she cannot force them to vote on it again without changing it ‘substantially’.

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.

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 she will have to ask Mr Bercow who would have the final say on if it goes ahead.

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.
