Brexiteer MP offers Theresa May SIDE-SPLITTING solution to shut down Brexit rebels

  • GETTYSmith said Britain could easily crush the European Union into submission if they needed

The Conservative backbencher revealed that six undercover police officers gave protection to an MP on a public engagement amid claims that threats were influencing Brexit votes.

British Prime Minister Theresa May faces a showdown in parliament with lawmakers later on Tuesday who want a "meaningful vote" on an eventual Brexit deal and to set the government's "direction" if the house rejects the agreement.

Yet, the Labour camp is split on the Brexit issue between pro-Leave MPs ready to vote with the government, and rebels who've come out against their own party's amendment to support the country's membership in the European Economic Area.

The government will face an nearly certain defeat if it now reneges on a promise to give MPs more of a say over the final Brexit deal.

For the Remainer rebels, there was quiet confidence on Tuesday that they had all but ruled out a no-deal Brexit after the prime minister promised to put down a new amendment to give MPs more powers over the final stages of Brexit. "They were spoken by the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union".

"Overall, the latest developments are supportive for the pound".

Ireland's premier has raised the prospect of delaying Brexit to allow more time to negotiate the UK's exit deal. How does parliament have a say in those circumstances?


Robert Buckland, the current attorney general, appeared to confirm earlier claims by Sky News when speaking with the BBC's Laura Kuenssberg.

Shortly before 1.30pm on Tuesday, David Davis, the Brexit Secretary, opposed a House of Lords amendment in no uncertain terms. Only if February 2019 arrived without a deal would Parliament then take over.

"Winning a battle does not mean that the war is over after all, in particular if the next battle is imminent". The strength of this commitment is yet to be seen in writing - and the Brexit department is still insisting it has not given up control of the negotiations - but the anti-Brexit rebels showed they have the numbers to force a defeat should the government renege on its pledge.

MPs will vote on Wednesday on whether to dismiss a plan proposed by the upper chamber of parliament which would require ministers to report what efforts they had made to secure a customs union with the EU by the end of October.

The prime minister hit back at Corbyn and said it was Labour that was divided, not the Conservative Party.

When the United Kingdom formally notified the EU in March 2017 of its intention to leave the union - by triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon treaty - a two-year deadline for its exit was automatically set. So each and every vote counts when it comes to key pieces of legislation.

The spokesman added, following talks with the potential Tory rebels, the government would bring forward an amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill, echoing Mr Grieve's, when it returns to the House of Lords on Monday.
