No-deal Brexit UK lorry exercise gets under way

Theresa May

MPs will seek to turn the screw on ministers with Tuesday's amendment, which is meant to demonstrate to the government the strength of opposition to a no-deal Brexit in the Commons.

Lawmakers are due to vote on whether to accept May's exit deal in the week beginning January 14.

"The deal that is on the table is the best and the only deal possible", chief spokesman Margaritis Schinas told reporters when asked about a phone conversation on Friday between May and Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker."This deal will not be renegotiated".

The British leader said that since the vote was pulled at the last minute in December, she's been consulting with European Union leaders and British colleagues to get new assurances in three key areas, the details of which will be laid out in the coming days.

He said support for leaving without a deal was "hardening". At this moment, she doesn't have the votes in her own party to get the deal approved and would need a significant number of Labor votes to succeed.

If the deal is voted down, Britain risks crashing out of the European Union on March 29 with no agreement in place, a messy outcome that could plunge the country into its worst recession for decades.

Labour's Yvette Cooper MP, who leads the group that includes former Tory ministers Nicky Morgan, Oliver Letwin, and Nick Boles, said, "Our amendment would block some of the Treasury's no-deal powers unless parliament has explicitly voted for no deal or unless the government has requested an extension of article 50".

EY financial services' Brexit Tracker said 20 companies had announced plans to transfer assets - chiefly client cash and investments such as stock and bond holdings - out of London before 29 March.

However, as MPs prepare to return to Westminster with a crunch vote looming on an withdrawal agreement thrashed out with Brussels, the prime minister said no alternative plan was able to respect the 2016 referendum result, protect jobs and provide certainty to citizens and businesses.

Chinese began to gather data from the invisible side of the Moon
Beijing is planning to send another lunar lander, Chang'e-5, later this year to collect samples and bring them back to Earth. Unlike the near side of the moon, which offers many flat areas to touch down on, the far side is mountainous and rugged.

Prime Minister Theresa May is trying to force her Brexit deal through parliament but lawmakers are expected to reject it.

May was due to meet Conservative MPs over private drinks this week to try to sway waverers, and one minister insisted the vote next week could still be won.

Mr Davies told BBC Radio Wales' Sunday Supplement programme that it is "very unlikely" Mrs May will win the vote. "Sending lorries across Kent on a wild goose chase to Manston airport and then to the port of Dover by small and winding, often single track "A roads" through Kent villages is not the right plan".

"It's too little too late - this process should have started nine months ago". Now around 10,000 heavy goods vehicles arrive every day at the port. But May would be long gone before March if she fails to deliver on her promises.

"The backstop remains the poison which makes any vote for the Withdrawal Agreement so toxic", DUP Deputy Leader Nigel Dodds said in a statement on Sunday.

Senior EU figures are said to be waiting until the last moment before the deadline for reaching a Brexit deal to offer any additional measures, so MPs are left with no time to demand more.

Her proposal would see both sides adopt a December 2021 target for agreeing the new trade arrangements. The language used by the EU Commission Monday is no different from what EU leaders have used since the deal was signed in November.

The government is also looking at giving parliament a bigger say in a new round of trade talks with Brussels.
