May tells rebels - It's my Brexit deal or no deal

Britain is to due to leave the European Union at the end of March, but Khan warned the country now faces two "incredibly risky" options ― both of which could have devastating impacts on the economy and people's living standards.

Failure to reach a deal would imply some upheaval, May acknowledged. "One of them is the issue of how to avoid a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland".

"I am very surprised that the prime minister triggered Article 50 and started the United Kingdom down this very tight timetable to have a Brexit plan before she had a plan", he said.

The fate of May's government and her Brexit plan is in doubt because it is unclear whether she can command the 320 votes she needs in the House of Commons, the lower house of the British parliament, to approve a deal.

The Prime Minister delivered the warning to her political opponents - including her ex-Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. "I think that the alternative to that will be having no deal", she said, in reference to her so-called Chequers plan which had deeply divided different sections of the political divide.

May has so far refused to rule out any post-Brexit preferential treatment for European Union migrants, one of the issues which has deeply divided MPs and ministers within her own party.

Under the plan, goods could be tracked using barcodes on shipping containers for "trusted trader" firms routinely importing and exporting between the two territories.

Reuters reported on September 12 that European Union officials were working on a sensitive Irish protocol to the draft Brexit treaty with Britain, as part of what Barnier has called efforts to "de-dramatize" the issue and get a deal.


"That is a heck of a lot of work", she said. During the referendum campaign, some politicians courted voters from the South Asian diaspora with promises that Brexit - by enabling Britain to restrict the rights of European Union citizens to travel to the United Kingdom - could provide the government with the capacity to ease rules for those from non-EU countries.

The idea was immediately rejected by May, the report said.

"We have now reached a position where there are two outcomes as a effect of the government's negotiations", the Labour politician said.

Ahead of its annual conference next week, pressure has been building on leader Jeremy Corbyn to come off the fence in support of a second Brexit referendum.

Labour's official position is that while it hasn't taken a fresh vote off the table, its preference is to win a general election so it can enter its own negotiations with Brussels.

Philip Hammond, the British finance minister, said the United Kingdom had made economic progress under May's government, but it stood "at a critical juncture" as it entered the final stages of the Brexit negotiations.

With Mrs May lacking a parliamentary majority and Brexiteers in open rebellion, Labour could have huge a say in what happens next.
