  • Crash-out Brexit looms larger for scientists after deal rejected

After seeing off a vote of no-confidence in her Government on Wednesday, Mrs May invited the other party leaders for individual talks to find a way forward on Brexit.

But the further May moves towards softening Brexit, the more she alienates dedicated Brexiteers in her own party who think the threat of a no-deal Brexit is a crucial bargaining chip.

"That's why. I have chose to trigger this plan for a no-deal Brexit or a hard Brexit as it is sometimes called", Philippe told reporters.

Jeremy Corbyn has urged his MPs not to "engage" with the Government over a Brexit deal after at least three prominent backbenchers took up an offer of talks with ministers.

Ian Blackford of the Scottish National Party (SNP) said his party would only participate if she were prepared to consider delaying Brexit, ruling out a "no deal" and the option of holding a second referendum.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May, citing domestic concerns, will follow her French and American counterparts by staying away from this year's World Economic Forum in Davos.

Meanwhile in France, the government activated its plans for handling the effects of a no-deal Brexit, which Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said had become "less and less unlikely".

Addressing an an audience of Leave Means Leave campaigners in London on Thursday evening Mr Farage, ex-Work and Pensions Secretary Ms McVey, and Wetherspoon's boss Mr Martin appeared alongside former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith, Labour MP Kate Hoey and hotelier Sir Rocco Forte to demand Brexit be pushed through.

Germany will do all it can in the coming days to ensure that a deal is in place for when Britain leaves the European Union, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Thursday.


A second referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union would take more than a year to organize, according to official government guidance shown to lawmakers on Wednesday, a source in Prime Minister Theresa May's office said.

All parties committed to leaving the European Union by accepting the outcome of the referendum.

Corbyn then turned his attention directly to May, outlining the same points he made in his letter to the Labour party, and warning that entering talks at such at a late stage with a "no deal" scenario still in play, would be a "reckless leap in the dark".

Hardline Brexiteers have been pushing hard for a no-deal Brexit, also referred to as a WTO Brexit, which would see Britain cut ties with the European Union in a clean break from Brussels.

The second looks at the increased control measures at ports and airports, and will "lighten certain formalities".

Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic - as well as a close relationship with its single market and greater protections for workers and consumers.

"We are relying on a decision by the United Kingdom".

But the chairman of May's Conservative party, Brandon Lewis, said on Thursday that Britain should not stay in the current customs union because striking global trade deals after Brexit is a priority.
