Brexit: More votes promised as Labour says May running down the clock

With only 47 days to go, there have been claims the prime minister is running down the clock to make it more likely that MPs will back her withdrawal agreement as so many of them fear a no-deal departure. It is that promise that led to this week's vote.

The prime minister is aiming to allay lawmaker concern that, unless they vote to take control of the process and order her to seek an extension of European Union negotiations, they will have lost their chance to avoid a no-deal Brexit.

In an interview with the Sunday Times Mr Starmer described Mrs May's approach as "reckless" and "blinkered" and blamed her "tunnel vision" for the devastating defeat suffered last month when MPs threw out her Brexit deal by a record 230 votes.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will pledge this week to give parliament another chance to voice their opinions on Brexit by February 27 as she tries to buy more time to negotiate a new deal with the European Union.

"We can't allow that to happen", Sir Keir told The Sunday Times.

"That gives that sense of timetable, clarity, and objective on what we're doing with the European Union - taking that work forward and our determination to get a deal - but equally knowing that role that parliament very firmly has", Brokenshire told the BBC. "That isn't right in terms of the respect for parliament", said Starmer.

However, Labour is facing its own deep splits on Brexit, with dozens of MPs furious with the leadership to failing to get behind a second referendum.

The UK faces job losses in a "brutal" no-deal scenario come March 29, Theresa May has been warned.

Instead he appeared to be trying to outflank Mrs May by pitching to join forces with Tories who want a softer Brexit.

On Wednesday, Mrs May will ask MPs for more time to get legally-binding changes to the controversial Northern Irish backstop, which she believes will be enough to secure a majority in Parliament for her deal.

In a speech in Coventry, Mr Corbyn said Labour's plan "could win the support of Parliament and bring the country together" but Mrs May has so far "chosen the path of division".

Mr Corbyn said that without an election "we will keep all options on the table - as agreed in our conference motion - including the option of a public vote". Foremost was a demand that May seek a "permanent and comprehensive UK-wide customs union".

"I'm certain of one thing, is that it's not going to be as good as if they had not been Brexit, that is for sure", Lagarde said.
