DUP not backing Theresa May Brexit deal - sufficient progress 'not achieved'

Finally, a Big Week for Brexit PM Theresa May faces challenge despite securing key Brexit changes

May claimed that the legally binding arrangement could now be used to start a "formal case" against the European Union if it tries to keep the United Kingdom tied into the backstop, a safety net to maintain an open border between the UK's Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic, beyond the transition period.

The fate of the EU withdrawal agreement remained uncertain after Prime Minister Theresa May and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker secured legally-binding and mutually acceptable changes in a last-minute meeting before Tuesday's key vote.

Effective July 2018, access to full reports will only be available with a subscription.

If she loses the vote, she has said MPs will get a vote on Wednesday on whether to leave without a deal and, if they reject that, then a vote on whether to ask for a limited delay to Brexit.

Other senior Eurosceptics, including the former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith, called for the meaningful vote to be delayed to give MPs more time to consider how to vote.

More than two hours later - at 11:40 p.m. - the tired leaders sat down for a joint news conference to announce changes they both hope will now put an end to the tortuous negotiations that have defined the U.K.'s exit from the 28-country bloc.

Other EU nations had urged British politicians to seize the chance to back the deal and ensure an orderly departure.

"If MPs vote for Theresa May's Brexit deal, we edge closer to understanding exactly how and when Brexit will play out but whether that is positive or negative for the pound depends on the deal itself".

Pro-Brexit politicians in May's Tory party insist that the plan - known as the backstop - threatens to trap the United Kingdom inside the EU's trade regime forever, because it would be impossible for Britain to leave. But he later added: "Now we have the outline of what has been agreed, I look forward to the full text and the opinion of the team of lawyers we have set up to advise us ... it's good to see rising enthusiasm and reference in legal text to the Malthouse compromise".

The EU said there would be no more negotiations with London on the divorce terms, struck with May after two-and-a-half years of tortuous negotiations.

"Now is the time to come together to back this improved Brexit deal and deliver on the instruction of the British people", she said.

Nick Boles, a leading Conservative pushing the government to rule out a no-deal Brexit, warned May that she would "forfeit the confidence of the House of Commons" if she failed to put it to a vote.

What happens after that is anyone's guess, with many MPs, including the Labour party, advocating for a second referendum.

More than two and a half years after the country voted to leave the European Union - and with no certainty about when or how it will - many Britons are simply fed up.

"I am actually considering never voting again, quite honestly, because I am beginning to feel that there is no point in it", she said.
