United Kingdom leader deploys ministers to sell Brexit deal to public

United Kingdom leader deploys ministers to sell Brexit deal to public

"I am sorry to say this, these are hard truths, but there will be no proper free trade deals and we will not take back control of our laws".

"They resemble the kind of diktat that might be imposed on a nation that has suffered a military defeat".

"The Government recognises the vital importance of medicines and medical products and is working to ensure that there is sufficient roll-on, roll-off freight capacity to enable these vital products to continue to move freely in to the UK", Hancock said.

The warnings from institutions like the Bank of England, the CBI, and the Government's own technical papers have been calamitous about the impact of leaving without a deal on March 29 - though some Brexiteers say much of this is an exaggeration.

Writing in the Mail, Legal & General chief executive Nigel Wilson said an agreement with the European Union was "always going to be a compromise" and argues that Mrs May's opponents are being "self-indulgent".

Elsewhere, Jeremy Hunt warned of "real social instability" if a second referendum resulted in a victory for Remain.

"I fear for our country if we set course now, agree to this deal and make the grave mistake of leaving the European Union, which has conveyed so much prosperity and delivered peace and a better country".

Elsewhere, the research also found very little appetite for a General Election, with 84.7% of respondents not in favour of such an outcome.

Mr Maugham said: "I'm very pleased that the court in Luxembourg has recognised the extreme importance of its answer and its urgency for the parliament". But this is 2018 and if the defeat is heavy enough it can not be totally ruled out. "After almost two years of long and complex negotiations, he would take us back to square one".

The two grand slams replaced two WWE events from 2017 as WrestleMania and Royal Rumble slipped out of the list in 2018. The top people searched for were Meghan Markle, Demi Lovato , Sylvester Stallone, Logan Paul, and Khloe Kardashian .

Senior Cabinet ministers including Chancellor Philip Hammond and Health Secretary Matt Hancock are among those who will make another late push to garner support for Mrs May's Withdrawal Agreement ahead of Tuesday's vote.

"I'm continuing to listen to colleagues on that and considering a way forward", she told MPs.

Asked if she would be happy for parliament to adjudicate on whether to go into the backstop or extend implementation, the PM said: "I think people are concerned about the role of the United Kingdom in making these decisions".

But it would also place a "duty" on the Government to have a workable alternative in place within a year of the backstop being entered.

DUP leader Arlene Foster, whose party opposes Mrs May's deal, warned that the amendment would not be enough, tweeting: "Domestic legislative tinkering won't cut it. The legally binding worldwide Withdrawal Treaty would remain fundamentally flawed as evidenced by the Attorney General's legal advice".

It is meant to ensure there is no return to a hard border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and EU-member Ireland.

Legal advice from Attorney General Geoffrey Cox has shown that the backstop arrangements in the Withdrawal Agreement would potentially last "indefinitely". He said May can "absolutely" win the vote, and that even if she loses, she's best-placed to improve on her Brexit deal.

Theresa May and the Queen face uncertain times.

The UK government has issued a new warning that there could be disruption of up to six months at Dover in the event of a "no deal" Brexit - a change of message which has caused the pharma sector to make its frustration clear.
