Has Theresa May only delayed her Brexit defeat by a few days?

The Foreign Minister said it was too early to say if the Trump Kim meeting could be deemed a success “but at least it’s a serious start” Source 1 NEWS

After winning Tuesday's vote on changes to a future "meaningful vote" on a final agreement with Brussels in her European Union withdrawal bill, May's plans to end more than 40 years of membership in the bloc were still on track.

The most contentious was the bid to give Parliament the power to tell the government what to do if the Brexit deal was voted down or no agreement was reached.

"The main reason for my taking this decision now is the Brexit process and the government's wish to limit parliament's role in contributing to the final outcome in a vote that takes place today", Lee, who voted to remain in the European Union during Britain's 2016 referendum, said on his website. Her mission is clear: to find a way to unite the warring Brexit factions in her party before they derail the government.

The pound traded higher against the euro and the dollar after the votes.

Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer commented: "This vote was about ensuring parliament was given a proper role in the Brexit negotiations and that we avoid a no deal situation, which is becoming more likely with the divisions at the heart of this government".

The Tory Brexiteer claimed the so-called concessions made by Prime Minister Theresa May to Remainer MPs on Tuesday will prevent the United Kingdom to ever have a strong position in the negotiations with Brussels.

Theresa May is facing one of the biggest tests of her leadership, with Tory rebels threatening to vote against their own party to force through amendments to the bill.

The amendment in question hinges on whether lawmakers will get a "meaningful" vote on Britain's membership of the European Union.

He proposed an alternate agreement that would give ministers seven days to come up with new terms if Parliament chose to veto the final Brexit deal, and give the government until November 30 to reach a new deal.

Remainer Stephen Hammond said a group of potential rebels - believed to number 15-20 - received assurances from the PM moments before the key vote.

The Lords passed an amendment stating that Brexit can not go ahead until a minister has presented a report setting out what the United Kingdom has done to try to negotiate continued customs union membership.

The new amendment, proposed by Conservative MP Dominic Grieve, will now be considered when the bill returns to the House of Lords, with government whips indicating to the rebels that they will accept the bulk of the amendment.

A junior minister in the government of British Prime Minister Theresa May resigned on Tuesday ahead of a crucial vote that could decide the future of Brexit-and perhaps the Prime Minister herself.

"Thirdly, we must under all circumstances respect the result of the referendum". The text needs to honor her pledge to pro-EU Tories that she'll take account of their concerns over the possibility of leaving the bloc without a deal.

But her parliamentary problems will not stop there.

May objected to the amendment - inserted by the House of Lords - because she said it would tie her hands in the negotiation.

There is little May can do.

In fact, her party is far from united.

Often she simply puts off votes that could end in embarrassing defeats.

Earlier, the prime minister had been hit by the resignation of justice minister Phillip Lee, who came out in support of a second referendum on the UK's final divorce deal and criticised Mrs May's Brexit policy.
