May: Change of leadership risks delaying Brexit

May: Change of leadership risks delaying Brexit

"Replacing me is not going to make the (Brexit) negotiations any easier and it won't change the parliamentary arithmetic", she added.

A political crisis has engulfed Mrs May after she last week announced the draft withdrawal agreement for leaving the European Union, prompting a wave of ministerial resignations, including Brexit secretary Dominic Raab.

May also said her husband feels the pain of the vicious personal attacks on her by Conservative Party critics even more than she does.

Clarke, who has submitted a letter of no confidence, said every hour and every day that the Brexit deal was not rejected, was a day wasted on credible negotiations.

Two cabinet ministers have already resigned over the proposed agreement, while others are believed to be trying to change its wording.

And the opposition Labour Party, scenting a chance to topple May's government, has also warned that its members will not support her deal.

"These negotiations have been tough right from the start, but they were always going to get more hard towards the end", May told Sky News on Sunday.

Prime Minister Theresa May's suggestion that issues with the Brexit deal can be remedied in talks over its future ties with the bloc are "a tragic illusion" or "an attempt at deception", former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said.

The British leader has said she will be in the city herself later in the week to meet the head of the European Union commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, for last-minute talks. Mr Brady told BBC Radio yesterday that the threshold of 48 had not yet been reached. According to media reports, a vote could take place as early as Tuesday.

This week was one of the most chaotic in British politics in recent decades.

So I'm absolutely committed to getting the Brexit that 17.4 million people voted for.

May runs a minority Conservative government and a rump of Brexiteers in her own party, the Northern Irish allies she relies upon for support, plus the opposition, have vowed to vote down the draft deal.

Away from the intricacies of the deal, I was keen to push a famously private prime minister on how this week has felt.

Mr Varadkar told RTE "we've always had an open ear, open door" to requests from London, and said he would keep an open mind towards any proposals made in regard to the future political relationship declaration.

The long-awaited draft Brexit agreement was finally published, sparking ministerial resignations, including that of the Brexit secretary, and a parade of MPs brandishing letters of no confidence in the prime minister. Mr Raab was unable to explain who was responsible, saying it "was described as a drafting change".

Raab said that while the agreement was "fatally flawed", it's not too late to change that.

Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage says that although she hasn't seen the full deal yet, she will also be backing Theresa May in the coming months.

When asked about the abuses hurled at her, May said: "It doesn't distract me".

"I do think we are being bullied, I do think we are being subjected to what is pretty close to blackmail frankly". Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, and the Republic of Ireland are both still inside the EU's single market, so there's no need for barriers along the more-than-300-mile border.

Why are people unhappy with the deal?

Europeans will be treated as third-country citizens by the end of the two-year transition period, after which they will be forced to complete immigration formalities. It says a lot about the idiotic, boneheaded tactics of the ERG that they think now is the time to strike.

The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, is on hand to explain to member states why he backs the deal.
