UK Brexit minister says parliament vote can not reverse Brexit

May yesterday avoided losing a vote on her EU Withdrawal Bill after making a last minute concession to Tory rebel MPs.
Former attorney general Dominic Grieve also agreed, saying: "Not only will we have to stay in a form of customs arrangement amounting to a union, but we're also going to have to have a high level of regulatory alignment because otherwise the life that takes place along the border will be impossible because of different regulations on either side".
And when justice minister Phillip Lee resigned in the hours before the vote to oppose Mrs May's Brexit strategy, the government realised it faced defeat.
Failure to appease the rebels would likely see May defeated in parliament in the coming weeks, blowing apart Tuesday's hard-won truce and badly undermining her leadership of a minority government and a divided political party.
"So we're talking about Dover and we're not having a border down the Irish Sea so the United Kingdom has got to negotiate an arrangement with the European Union as a whole, which has no new frontier barriers". Anti-Brexit MPs had argued that removing the no-deal effect was necessary for the vote to be a meaningful one.
A statement from the Department for Exiting the European Union on Tuesday said David Davis had set three tests for any new amendment: not undermining the negotiations; not changing the constitutional role of parliament and government in negotiating global treaties; and respecting the referendum result. "It enables parliament to dictate to the government their course of action in global negotiations".
The upshot of the shift may well be as dramatic as the parliamentary procedure is incomprehensible. "Any compromise [amendment] would have to be tabled by Govt in Lords".
The Prime Minister made a bid to break the deadlock on Thursday with a proposal for a temporary customs union arrangement between the whole of the United Kingdom and the EU. The victory was Pyrrhic, as the government's earlier climbdown all but ensures MPs will have an increased say on the terms of any deal. "How can Boris [Johnson, the foreign secretary] and the ERG [the European Research Group of Euroskeptic MPs] live with this?" Given that after November 30, the House of Commons looks set to be empowered in the negotiations, it would not be in Barnier's interest to negotiate a harder form of Brexit before the U.K.'s self-imposed deadline.
