Brexit: European Union endorses the United Kingdom’s withdrawal agreement

LONDON UNITED KINGDOM- JANUARY 19 Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney delivers a speech at the annual Peston Lecture at Queen Mary University

Professsor Jonathan Portes, senior fellow of the group, said: "The Brexit deal would leave us in a customs union with the EU for the indefinite future - but it is a long way from frictionless trade".

Mrs May received a largely hostile reception as she told the House of Commons her Brexit deal "delivers for the British people", and warned that rejecting it would put the United Kingdom on the path to division and uncertainty.

"Because, you know, right now, if you look at the deal, they may not be able to trade with us".

The prime minister will also meet with the five main political parties, to urge them to get behind the deal - which has received support from major employers and trade associations concerned about the implications of crashing out of the European Union without any deal.

The deal needs to be approved by Parliament, but scores of legislators - from both the opposition and May's governing Conservative Party - say they will oppose it. "A deal that delivers for the British people".

With the parliamentary vote on Prime Minister May's Brexit deal just a few weeks away, Boris Johnson is frantically making the case for the government to consider alternatives to Theresa May's Brexit agreement.

One of the big issues is the future of the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

May has defended the terms of the agreement, saying the deal "unlocks a bright future for the UK" and claws back control of "borders. money".

Newshour, US tourist killed by remote tribe
In an Instagram post, his family said it was mourning him as a "beloved son, brother, uncle and best friend to us". But the tribespeople became angry and shot an arrow at him, hitting a book he was carrying, Mr Pathak said.

Committee chairman Nicky Morgan said the analysis would provide Parliament with a "full and frank assessment" of the deal, and confirmed the cross-party panel would write to all MPs about the evidence it receives ahead of the "meaningful vote", which is expected in the week of December 10.

More recently, Hammond and business secretary Greg Clark tried to reassure dozens of leading chief executives on a conference call following the unveiling of May's Brexit deal earlier this month.

John Bercow was under fire last night after allowing a string of Theresa May critics to have the first go at savaging her Brexit deal in the Commons. "It is best possible deal".

That seems likely, at least as of Sunday, since the European Union -approved agreement is opposed by the Labour, Liberal Democrats, SNP, and DUP parties, as well as more than 80 MPs in May's Conservative (Tory) party (and she can't lose more than six).

Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte added: "This is the deal on the table. We should bank what is sensible in the Withdrawal Agreement and the political declaration, on citizens, on mutual recognition of qualifications, home and foreign policy co-ordination and so on", he wrote.

Mrs Foster also said that if the deal was accepted by parliament, the DUP would review its confidence & supply agreement with the Tories.

On Monday, the American president said that May's proposal, which British MPs will vote for in December, would mean that "we have to take a look at seriously whether or not the United Kingdom is allowed to trade [with the US]", and urged May "to do something about that".
