May 'determined' United Kingdom will leave European Union on time in March

Maas: Exit from Brexit 'extremely unlikely' May claims she is 'armed with fresh' Brexit mandate
Russell Knight | 04 February, 2019, 14:54

"When I return to Brussels I will be battling for Britain and Northern Ireland, I will be armed with a fresh mandate, new ideas and a renewed determination to agree a pragmatic solution that delivers the Brexit the British people voted for", May said.

Last week Mrs May secured Parliament's backing to go back to Brussels in the hope of hammering out a fresh agreement that does not include the Irish border backstop - which is unacceptable to the DUP and Brexiteer Tories - and which will command a majority in the Commons.

Mrs. May wrote: "While replacing the backstop with alternative arrangements was one option, [Sir Graham] would also be happy with the current backstop if there was a time limit or unilateral exit mechanism".

Nissan has cancelled plans to make its X-Trail SUV in the United Kingdom - a sharp blow to Brexit supporters, who had fought to have the model built in northern England.

"If I return to Brussels, I will fight for great Britain and Northern Ireland", wrote May in the "Sunday Telegraph".

Despite the challenges, May insisted in the article that she would "deliver Brexit on time".

But with the clock running down until the March 29 exit date the risks of a no-deal Brexit for both Britain and the bloc are coming into sharp focus.

After the Commons voted on the Brady amendment, the EU's chief negotiator Michael Narnier said the backstop is "part and parcel" of the UK's Brexit deal and will not be renegotiated.

Group FaceTime calling was a key feature in last fall's iOS 12 software update , which comes with the latest iPhones and iPads . His mother, Michele Thompson, tweeted about her son's discovery for days before the company and media outlets picked up on it.

His deputy John McDonnell had earlier accused the Prime Minister of trying to get pro-Brexit Labour rebels to "sell their votes" in a "dangerous" bid to win support for her deal.

Mr Coveney said the backstop was required to "ensure the protection of the Good Friday Agreement" which ended 30 years of armed struggle in Northern Ireland.

Pro-Brexit trade minister Liam Fox said it would be "irresponsible" for the European Union to refuse to reopen the Brexit negotiations.

"Are they really saying that they would rather not negotiate and end up in a "no deal" position?", he said.

"The last thing this country needs is a general election, I think the people would never forgive us for it, I think what they want is this parliament to deliver Brexit in an orderly way", Home Secretary Sajid Javid told BBC TV.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt conceded on Thursday that "extra time" might be needed to get "critical legislation" related to Brexit through Parliament.

May is due to report back to parliament on her negotiations with the European Union on 13 February, a few weeks after she secured MPs' support to go back to Brussels.
