"Don't let the search for the flawless [Brexit] become the enemy of good", May told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show.

In a message also issued to her own party's Brexiteer MPs, Mrs May said: "We have got people who are promoting a second referendum in order to stop Brexit, and we have got people who want to see their flawless Brexit".

He told Sky News that the Christmas recess will not have changed any minds, and if anything it will have "hardened attitudes of MPs to what is called a no-deal Brexit".

Following the cancelled vote, May survived a leadership challenge triggered by disgruntled Eurosceptics in her party and has been back to Brussels to try and get additional reassurances about the so-called Irish backstop which was a major sticking point in opposition to the deal. The MPs say that the move is meant to remove the threat of a no-deal Brexit by making clear no government could function effectively in such a scenario.

Amid the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Britain's high-drama Brexit process, fears that the country could exit the 28-member European Union bloc without a deal on the terms of its departure have continued to escalate.

MPs from all parties have vowed to vote down the deal when it returns to parliament in a week's time.

Ex-Labour cabinet minister Yvette Cooper is at the head of a group of select committee leaders who have tabled an amendment which will see the Treasury's no-deal powers stripped if a hard Brexit goes ahead without the consent of MPs.

Ultimate getting Dragon Quest XI's hero has been "achieved through active collaboration on Square [Enix]'s side". There are also theories "Jack" might actually be a reference to Jack Frost - a demon from the Persona series.

"I don't think anybody can say exactly what will happen in terms of the reaction we'll see in parliament". The government, for its part, has forecast a potential economic slump of more than nine percent in the wake of a no-deal Brexit. "It was leave or remain, and the way you leave is to come out on March 29".

In a letter published by United Kingdom newspaper the Mail on Sunday, May warned critics of her departure plan risk damaging Britain's democracy and weakening its economy by opposing her deal.

More Britons want to remain a member of the European Union than leave, according to a survey published on Sunday which also showed voters want to make the final decision themselves.

When the undecided and those who refused to answer were removed from the sample, the split was 54-46 in favour of remaining.

The YouGov poll of more than 25,000 people indicated a second referendum is backed by 75% of Labour voters. But so far, Theresa May's inability to get her deal through parliament has alarmed business leaders and investors who fear the country is heading for a damaging no-deal Brexit. Removing those who are undecided, the split was 53 per cent in favour of another referendum and 47 per cent against.

Under forceful questioning from the BBC, May said that there should not be a second referendum.

"It's also impossible to say whether public opinion is in favour of a second referendum or not because answers to that question have varied basically as a function of the question that's being asked", he added.
