May: Brexit deal to allow trade ties with any country

May: Brexit deal to allow trade ties with any country

"The British people want us to get on with a deal that honours the referendum and allows us to come together again as a country, whichever way we voted", she said. And that wouldn't be a good thing.

Prime Minister Theresa May is struggling to overcome opposition within her Conservative Party to the agreement she stuck with Brussels, raising concerns about a no-deal Brexit among businesses and investors.

The Brexit withdrawal agreement, approved by the EU on Sunday, has been savaged by pro-Brexit and pro-EU British politicians as a messy compromise that leaves the United Kingdom half-in, half-out of the bloc.

Joanna Cherry, a Scottish National Party lawmaker who is one of the group behind the case, said May was trying to blackmail lawmakers into backing her deal by implying the only alternative was no deal.

"We have already been laying the groundwork for an ambitious agreement with the USA through our joint working groups, which have met five times so far", she added.

The UK will not be to pursue an independent trade policy during the 21 month transition period after Brexit, during which it will be in effect an European Union member state without any representation in the bloc's decision-making institutions.

Yet May might be more disconcerted by the seemingly growing and clearly more vocal chorus of resentment from her own Conservative Party.

May's Brexit deal would be less economically damaging than crashing out of the European Union without a deal, according to the first detailed economic analysis published on it, launched on Monday by the People's Vote campaign.

A vote is due on 11 December after a five-day debate.

Cheryl left her glossy brunette tresses down in glamorous drawn-out curls and wasn't without her usual flawless make-up. The dress appeared to be one-shouldered with a floral appliqué detail, although the designer has yet to be identified.

However Downing Street disputes his comments.

Even one of her allies, former defense secretary Michael Fallon, said he could not support it and she should return to Brussels to secure a better agreement.

May said her deal was in the national interest, but opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said ploughing on with a deal that did not have the support of parliament was "an act of national self-harm".

"This bad deal does not deliver for anyone - no matter if you voted leave or remain. It would open the door to more division and more uncertainty, with all the risks that will entail", she said.

He said "the deal is doomed" unless MPs can "be persuaded somehow" that it guarantees the ability to reduce tariffs and strike trade deals with countries outside the EU.

The DUP said they would vote against the current form of the deal, drastically reducing May's chances of passing it, because it could leave the Northern Ireland subject to different rules than the rest of the country.

But her spokesman declined to confirm or deny reports that Number 10 is considering a possible TV debate with Jeremy Corbyn.

May insists the backstop is unlikely to be needed because she plans to agree a permanent solution for the border during the 21-month transition after Britain leaves the European Union in March.

As a result, there are also calls for a second "people's vote" so that the public can now make a more informed decision on what Brexit would really mean.
