EU Completes No Deal Brexit Preparations

EU Completes No Deal Brexit Preparations

The EU confirmed that in a no deal Brexit scenario, it could "honour its commitments" on the EU budget and could "continue making payments in 2019 to United Kingdom beneficiaries for contracts signed and decisions made before March 30, 2019, on condition that the United Kingdom honours its obligations under the 2019 budget and that it accepts the necessary audit checks and controls". But if Parliament doesn't approve a deal by the end of next week, the deadline is April 12.

But if May is unable to rally support for the withdrawal agreement among British legislators, European leaders have warned that Britain only has until April 12 to choose between leaving the EU without a divorce deal or a radically new path, such as revoking the decision to leave the bloc or calling another voter a referendum on Brexit. If she fails, Britain will have until April 12 to offer a new plan or decide to leave the European Union without a treaty. A British election could be the effect of parliament seizing control of the Brexit process if lawmakers back proposals contrary to the pledges the government was elected on, Barclay said. "A no-deal Brexit would immediately also dent Finland".

She says she is still trying to build support for her plan.

If he does, voting will take place on each selected amendment one by one, before lawmakers vote to give final approval to the wording of the motion. Each vote takes around 15 minutes and the result is read out in parliament.

Amendments are not legally binding, but do exert political pressure on May to change course.

This has been proposed by a cross-party group of lawmakers, led by Oliver Letwin, a member of May's Conservative Party.

There is little evidence yet that lawmakers' opinion has shifted strongly in favor of May's deal.

The result of any such indicative votes would not be binding on the government but if it showed a majority for an alternative Brexit path which would break the parliamentary deadlock it could be politically hard for May to ignore.

This a process often referred to as "indicative votes".

Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, whose opposition has helped sink the deal, said the party's "position remains unchanged". If the deal is rejected for the third time, the British Parliament will be able to weigh up alternative options, including seeking further extension and crashing out of the European Union, until 12 April.

May was told by Brexiteers at the meeting that she must set out a timetable to leave office if she wants to get her deal ratified, Buzzfeed reporter Alex Wickham said on Twitter. That opens an array of options including a much softer divorce than May had intended, a referendum, a revocation of the Article 50 divorce papers or even an election.

The march, which began at midday near Hyde Park and ended near Parliament Square, is the biggest demonstration against Brexit since the European Union referendum.

"It is with great regret that I have had to conclude that as things stand, there is still not sufficient support in the House to bring back the deal for a third meaningful vote", May told the House of Commons.
