United Kingdom parliament votes on extension of Article 50

Prime minister Theresa May

"We will keep up the pressure for a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal".

President Donald Trump on Thursday sharply criticized Britain's handling of negotiations over leaving the European Union, saying the talks have been bungled and that the wrenching debate was dividing the country.

The Prime Minister has previously revealed that Mr Trump told her to "sue the EU" and "not go into negotiations".

May has given lawmakers in her party a free vote and investors expect parliament will vote against a no-deal Brexit. I gave the Prime Minister my ideas on how to negotiate it and I think you would have been successful.

"I think it could have been negotiated in a different manner, frankly".

In truth, the drama has already well and truly started with the breaking news this lunchtime that MPs will be allowed to vote on an amendment that could bring about a second referendum - with remaining in the European Union one of the options.

He said both sides are very "cemented in" and he called it a "tough situation" and a "shame". "They could have had the vote and it should have gone smoothly and unfortunately it didn't".

Chancellor Philip Hammond said he was "certain" that MPs would vote for a delay to Brexit.

"We're talking to the Government and the attorney general to try and make a deal happen because we want to see Brexit working for the whole of the United Kingdom in a way that doesn't leave Northern Ireland behind".

Turning to Mr Varadkar, he said: "Leo, I'm sure you agree on that".

But Mrs May left no doubt that she opposes a lengthy delay, telling MPs: "I do not think that would be the right outcome".

Pelosi used the luncheon to make a pointed plug for immigration after just she had just described the annual event as "a tradition where we dispense with our differences, whether they're political or whether they're competitive in any other way".
