Brexit deal referendum a credible idea, says Hammond

Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay said he hoped the Lords would "scrutinise this bill passed in haste with its constitutional flaws". "A second referendum would be exploited by the far right, damage the trust of many core Labour voters and reduce our chances of winning a general election".

Merkel added: "I'll simply say we have to succeed". He himself has said such a vote should be restricted to specific circumstances.

Her party is also watching closely to see if she's prepared to offer Labour a second referendum, which would be a huge backflip and enrage many of her colleagues.

"The important thing now is that in any extension that we get from the European Union, we have absolute clarity that as soon as we've done the deal, we are able to bring that extension to an end", Hammond told ITV.

"When you enter into a negotiation like this to find a compromise way forward, both parties have to give something up", he told broadcaster ITV.

The First Minister also suggested she did not expect the Conservatives to stand by their refusal to allow a second referendum because Theresa May is unlikely to remain at the head of the government.

And Caroline Johnson asked Mrs May: "If it comes to the point when we have to balance the risk of a no-deal Brexit versus the risk of letting down the country and ushering in a Marxist, anti-Semite-led government, what does she think at this point is the lowest risk?"

"If we find a majority of Conservative MPs voting against the policy, it's not us who will be moving on", he warned.

We have to do everything in order to prevent a no-deal Brexit, Britain crashing out of the EU.

The British government and senior opposition figures tried Thursday to overcome intractable differences and forge a new plan for departing the European Union, as the bloc warned of dire consequences if the United Kingdom leaves the EU without an agreement next week.

The House of Lords debated the bill on Thursday as peers spared all-night long in what was an unusually long sitting for the legislative chamber.

Mrs May will be expected to spell out the UK's plans in a letter to Mr Tusk in sufficient time for the other 27 leaders to consider them before they gather in Brussels on Wednesday evening. Theresa May's spokesman said that the British government has not taken the required steps to hold votes on different Brexit options in parliament on Monday.

After seven hours of procedural wrangling on whether the European Union (Withdrawal) (No.5) Bill should be pushed through in just one sitting, Chief Whip Lord Taylor of Holbeach announced a deal had been reached with Labour.

The discussions are taking place as Prime Minister Theresa May faces a week of hectic diplomacy as she battles to keep her European Union withdrawal agenda on track.

Mr Barclay told the Commons the measure could backfire if MPs reject the proposed delay, as there would be no time to renegotiate it before the deadline for departure on Friday.

"By April 11, the European Council will have concluded and the leaders will have returned to their member states".
