Opposition Fury as Jeff Smith and Labour supports Brexit

Opposition Fury as Jeff Smith and Labour supports Brexit

He said: "Once again, all five of Manchester's Labour MPs have supported the Tory Government on its mission to deliver the hardest and most disastrous Brexit - no matter the damage to Manchester".

The government averted a rebellion on Tuesday over whether Parliament should have a decisive say in such a scenario.

"Every time we do anything in the UK, Brussels follows incredibly closely", the minister told the BBC.

Labour's Brexit policy chief, Keir Starmer, said May had been forced to avoid a "humiliating defeat" and "to enter negotiations with her backbenchers".

But, following Ms Cooper's intervention, ministers have agreed to drop a clause stating this could only happen if their family members already in the United Kingdom were over 18 years of age.

Her mission is clear: to find a way to unite the warring Brexit factions in her party before they derail the government.

Having been debated by both the lower house of parliament, the Commons, and the unelected upper house, the Lords, the bill is in its final stages. "I trust our PM to honour the undertaking she gave".

The Commons will vote later today on whether MPs should have a decisive vote on the final deal agreed between the United Kingdom and European Union in the autumn, but the government does not want MPs to be able to hold them to account.

Tory rebels, led by former attorney general Dominic Grieve, backed down from threatening to defeat the government over an amendment to its flagship Brexit bill.

Best For Britain, which is funded by the billionaire financier George Soros, said it was "working tirelessly" to secure a second referendum, targeting ministers and Opposition MPs it believed were sympathetic to its cause.

After the vote, Mr Grieve told Sky News: "I've voted with the Government following a meeting with that our concerns will be addressed".

The talks followed on from an inter-Korean summit in April at which Moon and Kim agreed to defuse tension and cease "hostile acts".

"If it were to turn out there was a problem, we will deal with it".

The vote was a major victory for Prime Minister Theresa May and her government who feared success for the amendment would have tied their negotiating arm, Xinhua reported.

"What it does is put in place a structure if things do go as planned", she said. The intention was never to bind the prime minister's hand.

But there is a majority in Parliament for maintaining closer ties to the European Union, a softer Brexit than the government is pursuing.

He said a concession of this kind would been "revolutionary" as the Commons can not override the government when it came to negotiating worldwide treaties.

Government sources confirmed ministers will now discuss the possible incorporation of these elements of Mr Grieve's proposals into the legislation. Jenkin tweeted: "There is only agreement for discussions, not concessions".

"There is no inconsistency here".

Or perhaps, this is in fact the completely predictable agony of split political parties, with leaders who struggle to command their troops, just trying to make it through after a huge vote that by its very nature, split the country in two.

The issue of a "meaningful vote" is set to be a flashpoint in the Commons, with ministers seeking to overturn a Lords amendment which would give Parliament extensive powers to direct ministers how to proceed if a deal with Brussels is rejected by MPs or no deal is reached.

Prior to the votes, the government suffered its first ministerial resignation over Brexit as Phillip Lee quit the Ministry of Justice so he could speak out freely.
