European Union mulls three conditions for Brexit no-deal trade talks

European Union mulls three conditions for Brexit no-deal trade talks

Morawiecki said that in case Friday's vote in the House of Commons fails, the European Union is "open to extending the departure process" on a motion from London, by "six or nine or 12 months, these options are available".

United Kingdom parliamentarians today rejected for the third time British Prime Minister Teresa May's plan for Brexit setting the stage for the country to crash out of the European Union next month without a replacement deal in place. In a political U-turn, leading Brexiteers such as Jacob Rees-Mogg and Boris Johnson have said they will now vote for the deal.

Responding to the development, the European Commission has said that the EU was now "fully prepared" for a no-deal Brexit. The benefits of the Withdrawal Agreement, including a transition period, will in no circumstances be replicated in a no-deal scenario.

Theresa May's failed attempt to pass her European Union withdrawal deal has exposed splits within the Conservatives' Eurosceptic faction, after more than 30 Brexiter MPs, including the leadership hopeful Dominic Raab, supported the government.

Jeremy Corbyn and Ian Blackford have called on Mrs May to now call a general election. Last Wednesday, MPs held indicative votes on eight separate Brexit policies, but none commanded majority support.

On December 10, May postpones a parliament vote on the deal due the following day, fearing a heavy defeat, but European Union leaders reject substantive renegotiation.

On March 12, British MPs vote 391-242 against May's deal for a second time, even after May and European Union leaders say they have agreed "legally binding changes" to its most contentious points.

Despite having won over some prominent Brexit supporters in the days leading up to the vote, May failed to bring Democratic Unionist Party MPs and members from opposition parties on board, which ultimately led to her defeat.

Nigel Farage, a broadcaster and leader of the Brexit Party, said at the rally that "history will mark (today) as the day of great betrayal".

The prospect of a wide-ranging post-Brexit free trade deal with the U.S. has not been universally welcomed in Britain.

"I fear we are reaching the limits of this process in this House", May she said.

"We were told over a 100 times by a British prime minister that we would be leaving on the 29th of March, 2019", she said.

An election would complicate May's planned departure as Prime Minister - which she announced last Wednesday as part of a plea bargain to win over more votes from her own MPs.

The force tweeted that by 9 p.m. local time, two people had been arrested for assault, one for being drunk and disorderly, one for assaulting a police officer, and one who was wanted for an offense in another part of the country.

May will continue to seek support for her deal as MPs are set to hold another set of votes on various options on Monday, a government source told the BBC on Saturday.

White House national security adviser John Bolton told Reuters that President Donald Trump sympathised with May, and restated that the United States was keen to sign a trade deal with Britain once it was no longer in the EU.

May has repeatedly ruled out cancelling Brexit, saying it would undermine democracy by ignoring the 51.89 percent of the Brits who voted to leave the bloc back in 2016.

A revised political declaration would open the way for a further section 13 approval vote that would also meet the Bercow test.

Conservative lawmakers urged May against a long extension of the Brexit process in a letter sent after her exit deal was rejected for a third time by the House of Commons on Friday, a lawmaker said.
