Newspaper: British lawmakers back Brexit delay

May says Brexit could be delayed by three months, to 30 June, if MPs back her deal in a vote next week.

It will be one of a seismic series of votes in the Commons tonight that could fundamentally change the Brexit process altogether.

DUP MPs and Tory Brexiters are being warned by whips that rejecting May's deal a third time will lead to a big delay and a softer Brexit, nearly certainly including a permanent customs union with the EU.

Unless an agreement is made, Britain is still at legal default to depart from the bloc on March 29.

That has hardened attitudes and accelerated a search for ways to force MPs to choose the deal - including the threat of a long extension, dreaded by Brexiteers.

It's been a turbulent few weeks in the Palace of Westminster and while Britons may all be bored silly by the sight of MPs arguing about what they think the people actually want, the drama shows no sign of stopping.

Barry Lockey, who arrived in Sunderland carrying a flag with the message "Get Britain out: Time to leave the EU", said that the event is about supporting democracy.

Shadow housing minister Yvonne Fovargue, shadow education minister Emma Lewell-Buck, shadow business minister Justin Madders, Ruth Smeeth, a shadow ministerial aide, and Labour whip Stephanie Peacock, all quit their roles to oppose one. Even if her deal is approved by parliament this week, she will need to ask the European Union for an extension of the leaving date until May or June.

European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker has said that Brexit should be completed before the EU elections in late May.

Goldman said it saw the probability of a no-deal exit at 15 percent and the probability of no Brexit at around 35 percent.

May has said she will hold another vote next week on her deal, although lawmakers have already rejected it twice.

Even if May manages to pull victory from the jaws of defeat, she already appears to have waved the white flag as regards her long-planned ambition of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union on March 29.

Downing Street said this was a "natural consequence" of Mrs.

Chief Secretary to the Treasury Liz Truss tweeted: "I voted against a delay to Brexit". A Withdrawal Agreement and Implementation Bill would then need to pass through the Commons before the extended summer deadline.

Thirdly, Ms Rudd abstained from voting on the government's amended motion ruling out a no-deal Brexit, which was also passed.

"If she presses on with her own deal I think we still have to go on and look at other options and get a common goal".

The European Union will tell the United Kingdom that if it wants the option of delaying Brexit for more than three months it must hold European Parliament elections, or risk a perilous new cliff-edge in July.

Even if the deadline is unanimously agreed, the Prime Minister will still need to get a deal through the Houses of Commons, which is now divided on the matter of the Irish back-stop.

"I also reiterate our support for a People's Vote - not as a political point-scoring exercise but as a realistic option to break the deadlock".

The March to Leave set off from the North East city on Saturday morning, and will make its way over to London over a 14-day period, arriving in the capital on March 29, where a mass rally will take place on Parliament Square.

The main motion was backed by MPs from across the various political parties, however most Conservative MPs voted against the motion.
