UK, EU plan special summit to sign Brexit deal

British Prime Minister Theresa May is seen at NATO headquarters in Brussels

Earlier, he was criticized for accusing May of wrapping "a suicide vest around" Britain and handing the detonator to the European Union with her plans for Brexit - the biggest shift in British foreign and trade policy for nearly half a century.

Devolution could see Yorkshire become 'England's Catalonia'George Freeman, who was chairman of the Prime Minister's policy board until November previous year, said he believed Mrs May should "seal the deal" before handing over decisions about the long-term relationship with the European Union to a successor.

If 80 of May's 315 lawmakers voted against a Brexit deal based on her proposals, the fate of the government and exit process would depend on the opposition Labour Party because she would not command the 320 votes needed to dominate parliament.

Baker said in the interview that the party may suffer a "catastrophic split" if May sticks with the Chequers deal, which the cabinet supported in July.

The UK will leave the European Union, with or without a deal, on 29 March next year.

Barnier refused to comment on the divisions in the governing British Conservative Party over Brexit.

"My view is the best option is Free Trade Plus".

With just 200 days to go to the scheduled date of Brexit, Mr Baker said that the PM would lack credibility with Brussels negotiators if she tried to press ahead with her departure plan at the party conference without the backing of her party.

In an article in the Mail on Sunday newspaper, Johnson pressed his attack on May's plan, calling it "a humiliation" that opens "ourselves to perpetual political blackmail".

Garvin said the jobs of only "hundreds" of JPMorgan's 16,000 staff in the United Kingdom would be immediately affected by Brexit, though that could rise to around 4,000 in the years to come depending on the settlement reached between Britain and the EU.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid said a Canada-style deal has a "lot to commend it", but it would not address the problem of the Irish border.

"It is absolutely no pleasure whatsoever to me to acknowledge that, but I look at the mood of colleagues and the mood of the Conservative party in the country and I am gravely concerned for the future of our party", Baker said.

He said the Johnson was "dragging us into a place where we think that we can joke about suicide vests and that we can be sexually incontinent".

If a deal has been reached by then, it will need to be approved by MPs.

Last month, Mrs May insisted she was "in this for the long term" as she faced questions over the prospect of Mr Johnson launching a bid for power.

He added: "I think it's quite hard for some of the glittering talent that we have at the top of our Cabinet to be the force of renewal and I think it needs to be led by somebody with a new mandate".
