'My deal, no deal or no Brexit': UK's May fights for survival

Peter Bone MP

British Prime Minister Theresa May won the backing of her senior ministers for a draft European Union divorce deal on Wednesday, freeing her to tackle the much more perilous struggle of getting parliament to approve the agreement. However, hardline Brexit supporters argue that it would be best for the U.K.in the long run, as fewer commitments to Europe would make it easier for Britain to negotiate direct trade deals worldwide.

A draft agreement on Britain's withdrawal from the European Union - including how much money will be paid to the EU, a 21-month transition period after Brexit day next March and commitments on the rights of EU citizens in the United Kingdom and UK citizens living in the EU.

European Union chief Donald Tusk has called for a summit of leaders to take place on November 25 so they can endorse a draft Brexit deal that has been reached with the British government. Raab's departure came after the EU's Tusk called a November 25 summit to ratify the agreement.

The day began with rash of resignations including the Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab the very man charged with negotiating the agreement with the EU.

Speaking before a hostile parliament after several ministers quit on Thursday, the leader of Britain's Conservative party told legislators "the choice is clear".

"When even the last Brexit secretary, who theoretically at least negotiated the deal, says "I can not support the proposed deal", what faith does that give anyone else in this place or in this country?"

"I do not pretend that this has been a comfortable process or that either we or the European Union are entirely happy", she said.

Conservative MP, Peter Bone, turned on Theresa May during a meeting in Parliament, suggesting she would lose the support of "many Conservative MPs" with her Brexit deal.

Main opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said May should withdraw the "half-baked" Brexit deal.

"I can not reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election".

Among other Cabinet ministers to resign is Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey, who told May the agreement does not "honor the result of the referendum, indeed it does not meet the tests you set from the outset of your premiership".

British Prime Minister Theresa May's position as leader of the ruling Conservative Party is under assault by eurosceptic lawmakers who reject her European Union exit strategy and want a more pro-Brexit leader.

The organisation's chairman David Dingle said truck drivers could be stuck on roads to Dover for up to two days if there was no deal.

Their resignations were followed by a second Brexit minister, Suella Braverman, while Anne-Marie Trevelyan announced she was quitting as an unpaid parliamentary aide in the Department for Education.

"No democratic nation has ever signed up to be bound by such an extensive regime, imposed externally without any democratic control over the laws to be applied, nor the ability to decide to exit the arrangement", Raab said in his resignation letter.

"I can not support the Withdrawal Agreement that has been agreed with the European Union", Vara said as he resigned as a Northern Ireland minister.

Ian Blackford, who heads the Scottish National Party in Parliament, said the deal was "dead on arrival" and urged May to stop the countdown clock to Britain's exit, less than five months away.

"But there's a lot of work that needs to happen to ensure that we have that unhindered supply of medicine".

Former Tory leader Lord Hague warned Brexiteers that if they did not accept Mrs May's deal, Britain might not leave the EU.

Mr Duncan Smith then added the deal will be worst than remaining in the bloc, putting the sovereignty of the United Kingdom at risk.

From the other side of the spectrum, European Research Group deputy leader Mark Francois savaged his leader by telling her: "It is mathematically impossible to get this deal through the Commons".
