UK Brexit plan has 'decent chance' in key vote on Saturday -Javid”

Boris Johnson has said he is "very confident" MPs will back his last-minute Brexit deal despite the Democratic Unionist Party ruling out its support.

'This compromise will allow us to avoid border checks between Ireland and Northern Ireland and will ensure the integrity of the single market. Brexit was initially supposed to have happened on March 31 this year.

In June 2016, the British electorate, rather against pollsters' expectations, voted 52 per cent to 48 per cent in favour of leaving the EU. "Because in my heart, I will always be a remainer".

Details of that trade deal, and many other aspects of the future relationship, will only be settled once the United Kingdom has left.

Johnson reassured Juncker he could get the deal through parliament, when the two men spoke on the telephone earlier Thursday, Barnier said.

But the arithmetic in the vote is not simple.

But the hardline, protestant, and pro-British Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) - the largest political formation in the region - posted a statement: "As things stand, we could not support what is being suggested on customs and consent issues and there is a lack of clarity on Value-Added Tax".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Brexit party leader Nigel Farage have all announced they could not back the tentative deal. I think people want to move this thing on.

Johnson does not have a majority in the 650-seat parliament, and in practice needs at least 318 votes to get a deal ratified. The DUP have 10 votes.

But there were immediate signs the Commons - which rejected the previous divorce text three times - might again refuse to play ball.

But the draft deal, which was announced just hours before a crucial summit in Brussels, now needs to be approved by both United Kingdom and European parliaments - something that could prove very hard.

"The Brexit deal agreed this morning confirms our long-stated position that there is no such thing as a good Brexit - only degrees of harm caused to economic and political stability on this island", he said.

European leaders on Thursday endorsed a Brexit withdrawal settlement drawn up between London and the European Union, which can now go to the British parliament for ratification.

Juncker said he wanted he deal to be approved rapidly, with no need for any further extension of the Brexit deadline.

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson poses with French President Emmanuel Macron during a European Union leaders summit in Brussels, October 17, 2019. "Now it is quite clear".

Johnson began his career as a Brussels-based journalist spinning exaggerated tales of European Union excess for British readers, and as a politician helped lead the campaign to take Britain out of the European Union, but that acrimony was nowhere in sight on Thursday.

Irish prime minister Leo Varadkar told the press conference that he had mixed feelings towards the end of negotiations.

"As the leader of a small nation, I have felt enormous solidarity from our European partners", he said, bidding farewell to Britain, "an old friend".

The Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said two years of Brexit talks have illustrated the strength of the European Union and "how much we can achieve if the 27 thing together, work together and have common objectives".

The conundrum was how to prevent the frontier becoming a backdoor into the EU's single market without erecting checkpoints that could undermine the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which ended decades of conflict in the province.

By removing it, he hoped to secure the support of Brexiteers in his own party and the DUP - which could hold the key to getting the numbers for a successful vote in the Commons.

She added: "In our view it will touch on every aspect of this already weak (Northern Ireland) economy".

Barnier said that the deal must now be ratified by the British and European parliaments "before the end of October" in order to go into effect before Britain leaves the bloc.
