Former UK minister calls for second vote on Brexit to end stalemate

Former UK minister calls for second vote on Brexit to end stalemate

"The only solution is to take the final Brexit decision out of the hands of deadlocked politicians, away from the backroom deals, and give it back to the people", she said.

He told Good Morning Britain: 'I think we're going to have a great trade deal.

Mr Trump warned in an interview with The Sun that staying tied to Brussels could scupper hopes of a trade deal with the United States - but later told reporters such a pact would "absolutely be possible".

Liam Fox, Britain's trade minister, tweeted after the Sun interview was published that it was terrific to hear Trump "talk so positively about UK & US Trade tonight at Blenheim Palace".

Brexiteer Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg yesterday accused Mrs May of being "a Remainer who has remained a Remainer" and called her approach to the negotiations "hopeless". He says it would lead to the United Kingdom having to follow European Union rules with no say in how they are made. He told journalists he had given the PM advice about how to handle Brexit, but Mrs May had thought it "too brutal".

She said her nation was determined to continue negotiations aimed at an amicable split that would allow for some ties to remain.

Meanwhile media reports in London said Monday opponents of May in her own Conservative Party are collecting signatures to force a vote of no confidence in her leadership.

She added, "My message to the country this weekend is simple: we need to keep our eyes on the prize". 'If we don't, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all'. I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me.

Labour Deputy Leader Tom Watson said it was not the party's policy to back another referendum - but said it should not be ruled out.

Weather Forecast: Afternoon thunderstorms develop
The main impact from these storms will be very heavy, torrential downpours, potentially causing some localized flash flooding. Highs will stay in the 80s and lower 90s through midweek then soar back into the mid to upper 90s Thursday and Friday .

Two top pro-Brexit ministers, Boris Johnson and David Davis, quit in protest last week followed by a string of junior walkouts, including two more on Monday.

Trump did not reveal what advice he offered May in a press conference with her Friday.

Another hard week awaits May, who is rumoured to face calls of a confidence vote over the leadership of her Conservative party.

The threat to her position from the Brexiteers should become clear on Monday when they put forward a series of proposals to toughen up the government's customs legislation during a parliamentary debate.

Ahead of a key week of Parliament votes on trade and customs policy, May warned party rebels on Sunday they should fall into line, saying that wrecking her blueprint for a split from the European Union could result in disaster.

Even Nigel Farage, the founder of the UK Independence Party, who helped secure the Brexit vote, mooted the idea earlier in 2018.

May's proposals for Britain's future relationship with Brussels, published on Thursday, foresee an overall "association agreement" with the European Union encompassing different deals on different areas.

Voting down a divorce deal so late in the process would trigger a major political crisis in Britain which would then be on course to crash out without any formal Brexit arrangements for trade, immigration and security.
