Bets Off for a Brexit Breakthrough

Brexiteers outline EU deal terms

In a statement, he said, "This towns fund smacks of desperation from a government reduced to bribing Members of Parliament to vote for their damaging flagship Brexit legislation".

As Brexit goes down to the line, investors are watching to see if May can win over enough MPs to her deal: if she cannot, then the exit date is nearly certain to be delayed by MPs eager to avoid a potentially disorderly no-deal exit.

New post-Brexit funds of £1.6bn have been earmarked by the government to support "struggling" town centres across the country - including £110m for the East Midlands.

There is no direct allocation for Scotland announced in the funding plan.

Cox's presence is seen as central as he will ultimately offer a legal opinion on the Brexit deal and the Irish backstop that could determine whether key pro-Brexit lawmakers will approve the withdrawal agreement. It is understood to include a legally binding mechanism that would allow Britain to escape the backstop.

"We are happy to offer further clarifications and further assurances if that can help the United Kingdom government get the agreement over the line", Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said Monday.

MPs will next be given an opportunity to vote on the Brexit deal and any changes Mrs May's government secures on March 12th.

Prime Minister Theresa May said: "For too long in our country prosperity has been unfairly spread".

"After Brexit, it should be for parliament to decide what rules are most appropriate, rather than automatically accepting European Union changes", May said in a statement issued by her office.

"These towns have a glorious heritage, huge potential and, with the right help, a bright future ahead of them", she said.

Labour's leadership did not warmly welcome the fund either, with shadow chancellor John McDonnell labelling it "a desperate bribe".

Meanwhile, International Trade Secretary Liam Fox has refused to rule out backing a no-deal Brexit if the Withdrawal Agreement is voted down by MPs next week.

Another £600m will be available through a bidding process to communities in any part of the country. Sources from both sides said negotiations among lower-ranking officials would continue on Wednesday.

As May seeks to win over lawmakers, a group of prominent Brexit rebels set out the changes they want to see to the agreement in return for their support: it must be legally binding, clear and set out an exit route for the backstop.

European Union leaders insist the legally binding withdrawal agreement will not be reopened, and talks in Brussels are focused on drafting a separate document to placate doubters in London.

However, Communities Secretary James Brokenshire said the money was not to buy support for the Brexit vote.

"And which makes clear that it can not be indefinite, and it can not be a trap both for the United Kingdom generally and for Northern Ireland in particular".

British Prime Minister Theresa May will on Monday unveil the plans for the 1.6 billion pound fund for Brexit-supporting communities in order to help to boost economic growth with ministers declining it was a Brexit bribe in order to win support for her European Union exit deal - Brexit deal.
