The Labour leader has refused to take part in cross-party talks to find a Brexit solution unless the Prime Minister rules out the possibility of a no-deal Brexit.

May won a narrow victory, 325 votes to 306 votes, on an opposition motion seeking to topple her government and trigger a general election.

Sight of the document comes just days the prime minister's Brexit deal suffered a historic defeat in Parliament.

It came after the Department of Transport devised a plan to send 150 trucks to test the Dover crossing in a Brexit rehearsal during a Monday rush hour.

"The currency is in for another rough night, however, as investors prepare for the no-confidence vote in Theresa May and, dun dun dun, whatever fresh Brexit hell its aftermath brings". It also does not want to be perceived as punishing the United Kingdom for leaving.

May's office said she would be skipping next week's World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, to focus on the Brexit crisis.

May's determination - or, as her foes see it, her inflexibility - might not be an asset in a situation calling for a change of course.

From Channel Tunnel operator Eurotunnel to Scottish whisky distillers, firms have called for urgent and decisive government action and warned of the consequences of a no-deal Brexit.

"This was illustrative only and our position is that there will be no second referendum, as the PM has repeatedly said".

Sarri , though, has digged his heels in over Hudson-Odoi, and he is not impressed with Bayern Munich's continued pursuit of him. Willian was on Thursday linked with Barcelona, but Sarri ruled out the prospect of the Brazilian departing this month.

Despite the objection to Corbyn's request, May concluded with an appeal to her rival's judgement, saying her door remained open to a meeting.

Both points rule out Labour hopes of membership of an EU customs union or its single market. They fear the alternative is an abrupt "no-deal" withdrawal from the bloc, which businesses and economists fear would cause turmoil.

"The government confirmed that she would not take 'no-deal'off the table", Corbyn said in a speech in the English town of Hastings, scene of a battle in 1066 that ushered in the Norman conquest of England.

Parliament is set to vote on Theresa May's Brexit "Plan B" on 29 January, it was announced today.

A recent study suggests that three-quarters of the party's membership back a second referendum, which would allow the British public to choose between staying in the European Union, and accepting May's (unpopular) deal.

She said the decision was down to the Prime Minister whether to have a vote but she was "shouted down and told we were not going to do it". He said Britain needed to get realistic about what was possible.

Representing Dutch farmers and agricultural producers who export goods worth more than €8 billion ($9 billion) a year, LTO Nederland said unhindered trade was crucial and called on the Dutch government to offer practical solutions.

In a direct message to Mrs May he said: "Take no-deal off the table now please prime minister". Business groups have expressed alarm at the prospect of a no-deal exit.

On Jan 29, they will debate these plans, and voting on them should indicate whether any of them could get majority support. "We will set out on a confidence motion, including that of a public vote". The United Kingdom and Ireland are now part of the same European Union economy and the border between Northern Ireland, which is part of the U.K., and the Republic of Ireland is practically invisible. Pro-Brexit lawmakers say the deal will leave Britain bound indefinitely to European Union rules, while pro-EU politicians favour an even closer economic relationship with the bloc. Says it will only support Mrs May's agreement with Brussels if the Northern Ireland backstop is ditched.
