Japanese PM voices hope Britain can avoid no-deal Brexit

MPs defeat May, urge her to rule out 'no deal' Brexit

The sticking point to the current Brexit deal on offer to UK MPs is the Irish backstop.

Nevertheless the vote will be seen as another blow to Mrs May's authority as she struggles to win support for her Withdrawal Agreement. Some investors and major banks believe May's deal will be defeated on Tuesday but that eventually it will be approved.

The Government lost a n amendment vote on Tuesday after Tory MPs backed the amendment [UK Parliament] Mr Clark suggested he would support a series of "indicative votes" in the Commons on the various options for Brexit to establish which could command a majority in the House.

Asked if he agreed with shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer that an extension to the two-year Article 50 process may now be "inevitable", Mr Corbyn said: "An extension would be a possibility because clearly there would have to be time to negotiate".

As the country counts down to Brexit while politicians remain deadlocked over how best to oversee its departure on March 29, Tesco said it had increased stockholdings of ambient foods such as bottles, packets and tins and made clear plans for each product category. She pledged to get these changes over the recess - she failed.

The Republic of Ireland's Prime Minister, Leo Varadkar, said he could not accept a situation where Northern Ireland was handed veto powers over the backstop measure either. "She want something with legal force".

During the speech she will also criticise MPs and other public figures who have blamed the nation's problems on migrants and will say that the idea that "businesses turn to foreign labour because they are too lazy to invest in workers here" is a "myth that has been gaining currency". "These discussions have shown that further clarification on the backstop is possible, and those talks will continue over the next few days".

However, a sizeable defeat (100+ MPs) would suggest the European Union are unlikely to offer anything substantive and a big directional shift in Brexit strategy is required by the government. Most commentators had expected one to be moved following the vote on May's deal next week.

Teams who could dethrone Clemson and Alabama
Clemson returns quarterback Trevor Lawrence, running back Travis Ettiene and receivesr Justyn Ross and Tee Higgins among others. Bad news is that Alabama will likely offer Swinney a blank check to coach his alma mater when 67-year-old Nick Laban retires.

Theresa May's plan was originally due to be put before the Commons in December, but was postponed over fears she would lose.

It is expected that the motion would be tabled before the end of the day on January 21, with a debate and vote on the motion likely to take place that week.

On Tuesday evening, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn whipped his MPs to support a backbench amendment to the finance bill tabled by leading Blairite Yvette Cooper.

However, Mr Bercow accepted a business motion amendment from Dominic Grieve, ad hoc leader of the anti-Brexit rebels within the Tory Party, calling for the Government to go back to Parliament within just three days of the "meaningful vote" - to give MPs an opportunity to try and block a No Deal Brexit, by all accounts. An analysis by the BBC on Thursday suggested May's deal is on course to suffer the biggest government defeat in the history of the Commons in the vote on January 15. Some commentators have suggested May could do this several times before she is left with the no-deal outcome.

The furore over Speaker John Bercow's decision to allow a vote on a Brexit amendment leads numerous front pages on Thursday.

Jeremy Hunt also said it would be impossible for her deal to win the meaningful vote unless there are "legally binding" changes to the Northern Ireland backstop - which the European Union has ruled out.

The complication for both sides is that European Union elections are due to take place later this year in the remaining 27 member states of the bloc.

He warned the UK's options were narrowing given the need to avoid, at all costs, a no-deal exit which he claimed was "simply not viable for practical reasons".
