Brexit: Rule out no-deal, Jeremy Corbyn tells Theresa May

Crash-out Brexit looms larger for scientists after deal rejected

May said the European Union would allow this "if it was clear that there was a plan towards moving towards an agreed deal".

Mr Brown also backed Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's decision to demand the Prime Minister rule out a no-deal Brexit, and said: "She should take no deal off the table - it's a awful, catastrophic result to end up with a no deal and end up with businesses at risk, with trade at risk, with the supplies of health service products at risk".

Ms Cooper, the Home Affairs Committee chairwoman, added: "I think the damage no deal would do would be so huge to our manufacturing industry, but also our policing and security, and that's why we had a vote in Parliament to say the Government should not be going ahead with no deal".

"I propose we negotiate with Europe to extend Article 50 for one year not as a delaying tactic but for a objective; that we agree, and the European Union accepts, a unique democratic innovation - the convening of nationwide citizens' assemblies".

Yesterday, he told MEPs that Brexit has been brought to a standstill because of the defeat and the "future steps must be indicated very clearly by the British Government".

May insisted that any new Brexit plan must "deliver on the referendum result", which she has long interpreted to mean ending the free movement of workers to Britain from the EU and leaving the EU's single market and customs union.

And Labour MP Luciana Berger, a member of the People's Vote campaign for another referendum, said: "After the vote of confidence was defeated, we now know a general election is off the table and any chance of Labour negotiating its own Brexit deal has gone".

The EU will now use the ticking clock of an automatic Brexit on March 29 in order to pressure MPs to force a change to the Prime Minister's Brexit strategy.

Britain's last-minute scramble to shape its exit from the European Union, its biggest policy upheaval in half a century, hit the rocks on Thursday (Jan 17) as Prime Minister Theresa May and opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn dug in their heels for competing visions.

However Rihanna has already trademarked "Fenty" for a number of business ventures, including her well-known Fenty Beauty line. In the documents, she claims the pair have been "soliciting business by falsely acting as her agent".

"The fact that my team are willing to continue talking to her team of senior ministers this morning suggests that at least there is a willingness to explore these things", the Lib Dem leader said.

May wrote to Corbyn on Thursday afternoon calling on him to reconsider, saying that the Labour leader had "always believed in the importance of dialogue in politics".

Faced with the deadlock, lawmakers from all parties are trying to wrest control of the Brexit process so that Parliament can direct planning for Britain's departure.

"We can regret this rejection or rejoice in it, but in any case what is certain is that the scenario of a no-deal Brexit is less and less unlikely", Philippe told reporters.

Companies warned of catastrophic job losses and chaos at ports if there was no deal.

Other opposition parties wrote to Corbyn after the confidence vote to demand he now back a second referendum, which Labour has agreed should be considered if it can not force an election. Business groups have expressed alarm at the prospect of a no-deal exit.

May's deal was doomed by deep opposition from both sides of the divide over the U.K.'s place in Europe.

"If it instead backs some version of a Brexit deal which is worse than the deal we already have inside the European Union and would leave the country worse off, it risks losing millions of supporters and alienating a whole generation of young voters".

Why? "Because we do not wish to do it", May's spokesman said.
