Emmanuel Macron "Reasonably Confident" UK MPs Will Pass Brexit Deal

The border crossing between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland outside Newry Northern Ireland Britain on Oct 1 2019. It has been a main sticking point during Brexit talks Boris Johnson's government fears Brexit deal slipping away

"Boris says he wants to 'get Brexit done, ' but committing us to another European Union treaty similar to May's Withdrawal Agreement will cause the United Kingdom years of wrangling and tension with Brussels, unable to focus on our bright post-Brexit future".

A senior European diplomat said the negotiators had begun to transcribe the British offer into a legal text that could eventually go before the 28 EU national leaders at their European Council summit on Thursday.

The leader of Britain's pro-Europe Liberal Democrats says the party remains determined to halt the Brexit process.

Brexit negotiations have been here before - seemingly closing in on a deal that is dashed at the last moment.

The party, a key ally of Johnson's, says it stands by a statement issued earlier by leader Arlene Foster and her deputy Nigel Dodds, which said the DUP "could not support what is being suggested on customs and consent issues".

However, the Northern Irish party Johnson needs to help ratify any agreement has refused to support the deal, which was hammered out over weeks of negotiations.

He also said Prime Minister Boris Johnson would meet the undertakings given to a Scottish court earlier this month, when the government's top legal officer in Scotland gave assurances the government would fully comply with a law which requires Johnson to request a delay to Brexit if no deal is reached by October 19.

A British government audit, published Wednesday, added weight to fears of a economic breakdown in the event of a "no deal" exit, forecasting a 45-65 percent cut in cross-Channel trade for up to a year. And any second referendum, especially one without a Clean-Break Brexit on the ballot paper, will be a stitch-up.

Scotland respond to misconduct charge
Scotland's feud with World Rugby has intensified after the SRU questioned whether the tournament organisers have any right to charge them over the typhoon row.

It was also not clear if British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be able to sell the deal at home.

Officials involved in the complex divorce between the world's fifth-largest economy and its biggest trading bloc said differences over the terms of the split from the 27 other member states had narrowed significantly but downplayed hopes for a deal.

.

Britain and the European Union have been racing to renegotiate the Withdrawal Agreement in time for an Oct 31 Brexit.

President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Junker, said EU member nations should back the deal.

And they were set to continue right up to the summit's mid-afternoon opening.

If the deadline is missed, a special summit could be called before the October 31 deadline.

The pound, which rallied on Tuesday (Oct 15) on hopes of an imminent deal, slumped after the official revealed that the Democratic Unionist Party had raised objections to the proposals.

Johnson had been mercilessly mocked and appeared set to be ousted as United Kingdom leader after his insistence that he could get a deal agreed by the end of this month - with the leader likening Brexit to climbing Mount Everest.
