As Deadline Looms, Brexit Needs More Time

As Deadline Looms, Brexit Needs More Time

May has reached with European leaders.

Protesters plan to set out Saturday from Sunderland, which is 270 miles (434 kilometers) north of London that voted by 61-39 percent in 2016 to leave the EU.

Britain will now nearly certainly not leave the bloc as initially scheduled on March 29. "We should not run that risk", he told the EU's member states on Friday evening.

However, it could also prompt other European Union governments, keen to see an end to the uncertainty, to be wary of extending the Brexit deadline.

Open border was a major part of the peace agreement. The backstop intends to avoid such a scenario.

The Westminster government has stepped up negotiations with the DUP in a bid to get its Brexit deal through parliament next week, bringing the Chancellor into talks ahead of a third vote expected on Tuesday.

Opposition and backbench MPs are still on the backfoot in this process and need the government to decide on the forthcoming parliamentary business, or next steps.

"Although a no-deal exit was voted down, we can not predict what will happen because it depends on how negotiations with the European Union will go, We will have to watch developments closely", Aso said. Instead, the customs duty is fixed by the EU. "Those discussions will continue over the coming period of time".

May struck her agreement with the European Union in November after almost two years of tortuous talks. Hard-Brexiteers call it a trap. Speaking to the BBC's Political Thinking podcast, Ms McVey said: "The element now is that people will have to take a bad deal rather than no deal".

"If the proposal were to go back to square one and negotiate a new deal, that would mean a much longer extension - nearly certainly requiring the United Kingdom to participate in the European Parliament elections in May", she said in an article in the Sunday Telegraph. May's resignation and fresh election and promised to renegotiate a new deal with the EU.

The government narrowly averted an attempt by lawmakers to seize the agenda on March 20 with the aim of forcing a discussion of alternative Brexit options - possibly limiting May's options when she takes her case for delay to the EU.

Some have expressed fear that the country's 33.5 billion-euro ($38 billion) tourism industry could suffer if Britain departs from the EU. One other thing that will nearly certainly happen is that the United Kingdom will have to take part in the forthcoming European Parliament elections which are due to be held in May - not something which any political party has really planned on happening. If the extra time is only a few weeks, the challenge is to come up with another deal acceptable to both British lawmakers and the EU.
