Theresa May Promises U.K. Lawmakers Brexit Vote by February 27

But Downing Street announced the statement has been brought forward to give parliament a couple of days to consider it before Thursday's Commons debate.

But the Eurosceptic Cabinet member, who has previously championed a "managed no deal Brexit", claimed delaying the crunch vote was not akin to the Government "running down the clock".

Prime Minister Theresa May has promised MPs a final vote on her Brexit deal.

"The government will commit that if the meaningful vote, in other words the deal coming back, has not happened by the 27th of February, then we would allow a further motion - votable in Parliament - to take place, to give that sense of assurance as to the process moving forward", he told the BBC's "Andrew Marr Show".

This will leave the prime minister having to instead either persuade her MPs and the Democratic Unionist Party to accept a lesser tweak to the backstop, which seems a tough ask, or put together a plan which would win over enough Labour MPs to see her over the line.

Speaking at the House of Commons today, Mr Corbyn said: "In truth it appears the prime minister has just one real tactic: to run down the clock hoping members of this house are blackmailed into supporting a deeply flawed deal". We now all need to hold our nerve to get the changes this House has required and deliver Brexit on time.

Brexit minister Stephen Barclay will meet European Union negotiator Michel Barnier on Monday to discuss changes to the part of the exit deal relating to the "backstop", an insurance policy against the return of a hard border between European Union member Ireland and British-ruled Northern Ireland.

Last week, Jeremy Corbyn, Labour's leader and a longtime critic of the EU, which he has long denounced as a "capitalist club", proposed Britain remain permanently in the EU's customs union and closely aligned with the bloc's single market laws, something Brexiters say would render Britain a "vassal state", working under EU rules but not being able to shape them.

Blair warned Sunday that a no-deal Brexit would inevitably lead to a so-called hard border being reintroduced on the island of Ireland with "potentially devastating" consequences for the peace process in Northern Ireland.

Kylie Jenner throws extravagant party for Stormi's first birthday
The entire Kardashian-Jenner clan was in attendance to celebrate Stormi's first birthday. "Happy birthday to my angel on earth". The third Disick kid, Reign, has apparently never had his own solo party since he was born on Mason's birthday.

Britain and Switzerland formalized a deal on Monday to preserve trade relations between the two countries even if London opts to leave the European Union without a deal with Brussels.

European Union leaders have rejected any changes to the legally binding withdrawal agreement. But EU leaders insist the legally binding Brexit withdrawal agreement can't be changed.

She described the possibility of cross-party support for security co-operation as sending "a powerful signal to Brussels".

The EU has signalled that it could tweak the political declaration on the future relationship.

Opponents of Brexit argue May is deliberately delaying so lawmakers will be faced with the option of backing her agreement or leaving without a deal, a disorderly exit that businesses fear will cause widespread damage to the economy and jobs.

In a statement seen by Breitbart London, Mr Batten said: "It is all too clear that Mrs May is playing for time".

Early on Tuesday morning, Commons leader Andrea Leadsom did not exactly quash that notion in an interview with the Today programme. She confirmed that if she hasn't got a deal by February 26, the Commons will have a chance to vote on plan B options the following day.

"It is a negotiation". British lawmakers overwhelmingly rejected the deal, agreed in November, in a vote last month, leaving Britain on course for an abrupt Brexit with no transition period to minimise expected economic disruption.

Figures released this week showed the British economy barely expanding at the end of previous year, as business investment, manufacturing output and construction all declined.
