May heads to Netherlands, Germany in bid to save Brexit deal

May heads to Netherlands, Germany in bid to save Brexit deal”

Meanwhile Alan Duncan, foreign minister, said that some Tory MPs were planning to vote against Mrs May's deal to further their own political ambitions, calling such behaviour "contemptible".

Mr Gove confirmed that Mrs May was trying to get a better deal in Brussels: "If there is more that can be secured then there's no one better placed to get the concessions", he told the BBC's Today Programme.

The Scottish National Party leader and Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable both urged Jeremy Corbyn to call a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister, which they said their parties would support.

The Prime Minister will also meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday in her bid to gain reassurances on the exit deal from European leaders ahead of a crunch EU summit on Thursday, after leaving Westminster in turmoil.

'It is clear Brexit can't be delivered with this deal without legally binding assurances on the backstop, ' she said.

The backstop is a measure created to prevent a hard border on the island of Ireland until a permanent solution can be found.

And she said that MPs who were threatening to vote against the deal she secured with Brussels must ask themselves the fundamental question: "Does this House want to deliver Brexit?".

And Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg said she should either "govern or quit", adding: 'We can not continue like this'.

"It is clear to us that Theresa May will not renegotiate the deal when she goes to Brussels, and will only be asking for reassurances from European Union leaders".

EU Council leader Donald Tusk vowed to try to help her win MPs round.

"But we are ready to discuss how to facilitate United Kingdom ratification".

The party's Nigel Dodds said: 'Does she not get it that the backstop is unacceptable?

Yesterday was a day of utter humiliation for the Prime Minister.

'At that point, she will have decisively and unquestionably lost the confidence of parliament on the most important issue facing the country, ' a Labour spokesman said. He said she still had the necessary authority to re-negotiate the deal.

Minutes before Mr Corbyn won his debate, there was Commons drama when a young Labour MP, 32-year-old Lloyd Russell-Moyle, grabbed the mace and was instantly ordered out of the chamber by Mr Bercow.

12noon: The pound falls 0.4 per cent against the dollar to $1.26, and 0.6 per cent against the euro to €1.10.

While Downing Street has not ruled out attempting to renegotiate the deal, the European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker unceremoniously rejected the option, stating there was "no room whatsoever" to reopen the talks and that the backstop must stay within the agreement.

Monday, 8am: The European Court of Justice rules that Britain can unilaterally revoke Article 50.
