May faces more Brexit woes after UK minister quits

The person she most wants to sell the deal to is U.S. President Donald Trump because a trans-Atlantic trade deal has been held up as one of the greatest prizes of Brexit.

With less than a fortnight to go to the historic House of Commons vote on her plan, the Prime Minister urged all MPs - including 100 or more Tories who have said they may rebel - to cast their vote "in the national interest" and back a deal which she said would deliver Brexit while protecting jobs.

She declined to entertain questions about what alternative she might offer if the current agreement is rejected December 11.

"It's not about me", said Mrs May.

President of the European Council Donald Tusk today said if parliament rejects the draft agreement proposed by Theresa May the United Kingdom will face two options: no deal or no Brexit.

The European Union have been adamant this is a take-it-or-leave-it deal and can not be renegotiated.

He continued: "If this deal is rejected in the Commons, we are left with... an alternative: no deal or no Brexit at all".

May's visit is the first by a United Kingdom prime minister to the Argentinean capital and on Friday she'll meet with President Mauricio Macri.

Mrs May said that in conversations with voters, "the overwhelming view I get is... that they want us to get on with it and deliver Brexit". "I think it's that interest in constituents that MPs need to have in their minds too when they come to vote".

The group will propose a single motion opposing May's EU Withdrawal Agreement in a debate at Holyrood, which has wide-reaching powers over education, health and a portion of taxes.

Mrs May said that if her plan was voted down by Parliament, the government and businesses would have to make decisions about implementing preparations for no deal. We haven't seen an alternative from the leader of the opposition. "What I hope to see and what I'm sure we will be seeing is opportunities for young people in the UK, opportunities for training and skilling young people in the UK", May told reporters at the G20 summit in Argentina.

Japanese automakers Honda and Nissan have warned that new tariffs or other trade barriers with the European Union would damage their competitiveness of their British factories, which employ thousands of people.

May visited Scotland on Wednesday in attempt to drum up public support for her Brexit deal agreed in Brussels last weekend, which she says suits all corners of Britain. "Some things are set in treaties but no Parliament can bind its successor.we can renegotiate". "It says we will be able to do those trade deals, and we will be able to do them with the USA and others".

"As Minister with the responsibility for space technology I have seen first-hand the European Union stack the deck against us time and time again, even while the ink was drying on the transition deal".

May has faced questions as to why she is spending time selling her deal to the public rather than the lawmakers who will vote on it.

He added: "It is a deal in name only".
