Theresa May faces new battle over 'bid to block no-deal Brexit'

May to MPs: We need to hold our nerve on Brexit talks

May tells Parliament 'hold your nerve' on Brexit, with 45 days before deadline

The EU last week rebuffed Mrs May's efforts to renegotiate a deal that she secured past year but was later overwhelmingly rejected by MPs.

May said she will present an amendable Brexit motion for debate in the House of Commons on Thursday, giving politicians a chance to challenge her Brexit process and put forward alternatives. "We now all need to hold our nerve to get the changes this House has required and deliver Brexit on time".

Guy Verhofstadt met with the British Brexit negotiator Stephen Barclay on Tuesday but again was left emptyhanded when the envoy of Prime Minister Theresa May left his office.

On January 15, MPs voted it down by 432 votes to 202 in an historic defeat for the prime minister, brought about by opposition to the backstop from within May's own party.

The backstop would keep the United Kingdom in a single customs territory with the bloc, while Northern Ireland would be aligned with some of the European Union single market rules.

Pro-Brexit MPs in May's Conservative Party are unhappy particularly with a so-called backstop provision meant to keep the border with Ireland free-flowing.

Mrs May sought to buy time, telling lawmakers they would get another chance to alter her course on February 27 if she had not secured changes to the Brexit deal by then.

The UK and EU made a commitment to avoid physical barriers or checks on the border if no UK-EU trade deal is agreed before the Brexit transition period ends.

Robbins' comments appear to confirm what has been said by several senior government ministers in recent weeks that the Prime Minister has abandoned privately her long-held mantra that "no deal is better than a bad deal" - and that she now intends to prevent the United Kingdom leaving the European Union fully at any cost. The conditions would have to be added to the political declaration and be legally binding.

According to Benjamin Martill, a Dahrendorf Forum post-doctoral fellow at the London School of Economics researching UK-EU relations, Corbyn has positioned Labour as the "party of the customs union" partly because "it's a good halfway position" that would gather support from some of those opposed to Brexit who would see it as a better option than May's plan, and partly "because it crosses the Conservative party's red lines".

Some lawmakers want to use Thursday's votes to impose conditions on May's Conservative government in an attempt to rule out a cliff-edge "no deal" Brexit that would see Britain crash out of the European Union without a framework for smooth future relations.

Business leaders have argued that a no-deal Brexit would spell disaster for the UK's economy.

Meanwhile, a cross-party group of MPs is to launch a fresh attempt to prevent a no-deal Brexit if Mrs May can not reach an agreement with Brussels by mid-March. "But if you're asking me whether no deal remains on the table, the answer is yes".

He was said to have indicated that if lawmakers, who overwhelmingly rejected the deal struck between London and Brussels, did not vote for a rehashed withdrawal agreement, then the delay to Brexit would be "a long one".
