United Kingdom and Switzerland strike post-Brexit continuity agreement

  • Taoiseach Leo Varadkar TD and the UK Prime Minister Theresa May

British Prime Minister Theresa May will pledge this week to give parliament another chance to voice their opinions on Brexit by February 27 as she tries to buy more time to negotiate a new deal with the European Union.

"It's this blinkered approach that's got us to where we are, with her never wanting to see where the real majority is in parliament".

Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29, but Parliament has rejected May's divorce deal.

In a letter to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn dated Sunday, May opposed his party's appeal for the country to remain in a customs union with Brussels. It is likely that many amendments similar to those debated on January 29 will be proposed, including attempts to shift control of the process away from government and give parliament a chance to define Brexit.

He says what she actually intends to do is return to Parliament after the 21/22 March European Council summit the week before Brexit and offer MPs a "binary choice" - her deal or no deal.

May is set to address parliament about the state of negotiations by Wednesday at the latest, with MPs set to vote on Thursday on how to proceed. "There needs to be a day when Parliament says that's it, enough is enough".

Ms Fairbairn told Sky News" Sophy Ridge On Sunday that firms were already planning "price increases and job reductions' in response to a no-deal Brexit.

"The government will commit that if the meaningful vote, in other words the deal coming back, has not happened by the 27th of February, then we would allow a further motion - votable in Parliament - to take place, to give that sense of assurance as to the process moving forward", he told the BBC's "Andrew Marr Show".

MPs would then debate the motion and any new amendments on Thursday.

And International Monetary Fund (IMF) boss Christine Lagarde said no arrangement Mrs May reached with Brussels would be as good for the economy as membership - and a no-deal Brexit would be "brutal".

The UK faces job losses in a "brutal" no-deal scenario come March 29, Theresa May has been warned.

British businesses fear a no-deal Brexit will cause gridlock at ports by ripping up the trade rulebook and imposing tariffs, customs checks and other barriers between the United Kingdom and the European Union, its biggest trading partner.

They have also signed a deal to preserve the rights of some 43,000 British nationals living in Switzerland and the 35,000 Swiss residing in Britain after Brexit.
