May brings Brexiteers and Remainers TOGETHER over controversial European Union deal

Brexit: Second referendum, Article 50 delay, amendments and everything else that could happen tonight

But so far the number of Tories publicly switching positions has amounted to a trickle rather than the flood the Prime Minister needs to overturn the 149-vote defeat for the deal she suffered on Tuesday.

If Prime Minister Theresa May presses on with her Brexit deal after lawmakers vote to delay Britain's exit, parliament will have to look at other options, the opposition Labour Party's Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said on Wednesday.

The British government is holding talks with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, which has strongly opposed the Brexit divorce deal.

British lawmakers voted on Thursday night to allow the government to seek a delay for Britain's departure from the bloc.

And the Liberal Democrat soon-not-to-be leader, Vince Cable, said that if Theresa May's deal was rejected yet again this week, then parliament could end up cancelling Brexit. We know that a majority of MPs don't want the current Brexit deal negotiated by the prime minister, but that they also don't want to leave without a deal.

Labour's John McDonnell indicated that MPs would "move heaven and Earth" to block a no-deal Brexit and continued to suggest the party could back a call to put a Brexit deal to a public vote.

Mrs May was given the green light for an extension to Article 50 following a Commons vote by MPs, but she will still have to seek this from the bloc.

Mrs May is expected to give MPs another - third - chance to vote on the deal she agreed with the European Union, on Tuesday next week.

A senior government source said that persuading the DUP would be key to securing parliament's approval, as that would prompt eurosceptic Conservatives to back the deal.

Only a longer delay request that puts "something new on the table: a referendum, an election, some other deal" would be likely to gain European Union approval, Macron's office said.

Aimed at avoiding post-Brexit controls on the border between the United Kingdom province of Northern Ireland and EU-member Ireland, the backstop has been a constant sticking point as May tries to push her deal through. They are likely to agree to an extension as long as there was a prospect of a deal being reached - or a referendum or general election which could change the political landscape at Westminster.

It would also force the Conservative party into an election campaign.

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.

Her decision to hold a third meaningful vote next week is an ultimatum for lawmakers - back her deal so that she can request a "short, technical extension" until June 30; if not, Britain will need to participate in European Parliament elections in May, or worse, risk Brexit not materialising at all.
