Theresa May Mulls Another "Plan A" Idea That Won't Work - Mish Talk

Theresa May Mulls Another

"The only other guaranteed way to avoid a no-deal Brexit is to revoke Article 50, which would mean staying in the EU". May's spokesman said later that Britain was committed to the Good Friday deal.

The lender said a chaotic Brexit would also threaten the global outlook. Here the Boles plan to rule out a no-deal Brexit could actually help May.

Well that was quick. One Cabinet minister said the outcome of the call was "essentially one more heave on the backstop".

Raf Casert reported from Brussels. Poland doesn't reflect the EU's views, he said.

Maas also said it would be "very difficult" to renegotiate Britain's withdrawal agreement with the EU.

Several ministers said a reopening of the draft withdrawal agreement was out of the question.

She said: 'Having listened to concerns from members and organisations like the 3 Million Group I can confirm today that when we roll out the scheme in full on 30 March the Government will waive the application fee so that there is no financial barrier for any European Union nationals who wish to stay.

"I don't know if it is feasible", Czaputowicz said.


"It won't have any effect on what was agreed with the (European) Commission". "This is the moment for London to speak".

Number Ten was under huge pressure over the application fee, which critics said placed on unfair financial burden on some European Union nationals who have made their life in Britain. That's in line with our report the premier has shifted focus, having given up on cross-party talks succeeding.

Many political commentators think Britain will seek to postpone Britain's departure from the European Union beyond the March 29 deadline by seeking an extension to Article 50.

Theresa May will face a no confidence vote after MPs rejected her Brexit agreement by a crushing 230 majority on Tuesday night (15 January).

After her Brexit divorce deal was rejected by lawmakers last week, May has been searching for a way to get a deal through parliament, so far in vain.

"If the backstop could be removed altogether, so would most of the problems be removed".

"It would obviously be less favourable for Ireland than an indefinite backstop, but much more advantageous than no-deal Brexit", he told the Rzeczpospolita newspaper.


Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said Sunday that he and Prime Minister Leo Varadkar were in no mood to support alterations to the withdrawal agreement (WA) or the backstop.

Here the prime minister identified the Irish backstop, the future relationship, and protecting social, environmental and citizens rights as areas where action might need to be taken. "Shakespeare couldn't have done a better job in writing the tragedy we're seeing at the moment in Britain".

Ireland's Minister for Europe Helen McEntee indicated little scope for a significant softening in the government's position.

'There are those on both sides of the House who want the Government to rule this out, ' she said. That is what this government is seeking to achieve.

Brexit supporters say that while there may be some short-term disruption, in the long-term, the United Kingdom will thrive outside what they cast as a doomed experiment in German-dominated unity and excessive debt-funded welfare spending.

'We are calling on politicians of all stripes to come together to urgently find a way forward from this alarming Brexit stalemate'. "This about building the consensus one step at a time".

Graham Brady, who chairs the Conservative backbenchers' group, said he thought May could get her Brexit deal past Conservative rebels if the Irish backstop "can be sorted out".

But while May said she would "ensure that members have the chance to make their views known", she has not altered her approach in response to numerous views that have already been expressed.


"It would impact on just about everybody, business. particularly the smaller businesses", Ardern told the BBC.
