'Imperative' UK government strikes new EU Brexit deal by June

Government Brexit talks with Labour face deadline

Peter Bone has said it is "absurd" for the Prime Minister to bring her Withdrawal Agreement Bill back to the Commons for a fourth time.

Former Brexit minister Steve Baker also questioned the Prime Minister's decision to bring the legislation for her "failed deal" before Parliament and suggested it would do little to counter the threat posed by Nigel Farage's Brexit Party.

"I would encourage both my colleagues in the Conservative party in the House of Commons and the Labour Party to try to walk back to the centre and let's get a deal over the line".

That would leave just two options when the October 31 deadline looms, a no-deal Brexit, which has previously been rejected by MPs, or the revocation of Article 50, cancelling the entire process.

Will it prove to be her final move as prime minister?

Her ministers - many of whom are already jockeying to replace her - agreed this week that any Brexit deal must be passed before parliament's summer holiday at the end of July.

"And of course it would absolutely split the Conservative Party".

UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

A number of influential former cabinet ministers, including Johnson and David Davis, warned her in a letter on Tuesday to reject a customs union deal with Labour.

Parliament has held three "meaningful votes" - a vote that was made a legal requirement of ratifying the agreement after amendments in 2017 by the Conservative MP Dominic Grieve.

Since last season, Empire has lost approximately half of its viewing audience, most likely due in part to the Smollett fracas. Jussie Smollett's future on " Empire " remains in limbo.

Alternatively, there is the possibility that Labour could amend the bill to its satisfaction - adding customs union membership, close relationship with the single market, and other details that would allow the deal to meet Corbyn's five demands on which the ongoing negotiations have been based.

With Mrs May's future linked to the passage of a Brexit deal, getting legislation through the Commons and Lords by the summer break could also pave the way for her departure from Number 10.

Britain could then leave the European Union on 31 July.

If the bill is introduced in the first week of June it will come seven days after the European Parliament elections - which Education Secretary Damian Hinds has acknowledged could be "difficult" for the Conservatives.

A Labour spokesman said: "We are not in the business of getting into a auto without knowing where it's going".

Shortly afterwards, a Labour spokesperson commented: "The Labour leader set out the shadow cabinet's concerns about the Prime Minister's ability to deliver on any compromise agreement".

The Democratic Unionist Party - the United Kingdom government's Northern Irish "confidence-and-supply" partners - have repeatedly refused to back a Brexit deal that includes the fallback customs union solution, the 'backstop'.

A sticking point has been the Irish backstop, an insurance policy aimed at avoiding post-Brexit controls on the border between Northern Ireland and EU-member Ireland.

However, she is under pressure from Brexiteers maneuvering against a compromise with Labour - with some Conservatives eyeing her position.

"If the prime minister brings the withdrawal bill to the Commons for a vote the question will be "what has changed"?" he said.
