LONDON – Britain exhausts the time and possibilities for Brexit.
U.K. lawmakers three times rejected the divorce agreement between Prime Minister Teresa May's government and the European Union. They also voted for a series of alternatives, leaving the bloc without a deal to hold a second referendum on UK membership in the EU.
All variations were defeated. Britain is now facing a deadline of 12 April to present the EU with a new Brexit plan or exit the block this night.
British MPs are planning yet another round of voting on Monday to see if they can reach an agreement on how Britain can leave the bloc. And May did not give up hoping to convince Parliament to support his Brexit agreement if asked for a fourth time.
The United Nations
The closest to success in the "Indicative Voices" last week in parliament called on the UK to remain in the customs union with the EU after she leaves.
It has always been ruled out because compliance with EU trade rules will limit Britain's ability to create new business deals around the world.
But it will ensure that business in the UK can continue to trade with the EU and solve many of the problems that make it difficult for May's deal. In particular, this would eliminate the need for customs posts and border checks between Ireland and Northern Ireland
The possibility was retabled on Monday, along with the amendments, including those remaining in the customs union and the EU single market for goods and services, and to remain in the single market, but not in the customs union. This is a confused picture that does not guarantee that a majority will get for nothing.
But if the customs union pledge is approved by Parliament, it will probably be welcomed by the EU and will allow the UK to leave the bloc in a smooth way in the next
However, it is under pressure from its government not to stick to the softer Brexit.
Another BREAKITE REFERENCE
Another option with significant support is that every Brexit Agreement will be put to public vote in a "confirmatory referendum". The idea came within 27 votes for a victory last week and is backed by opposition parties, plus some of May's conservatives.
But with the separation of Parliament and the Cabinet in May, a new plebiscite can be seen as the only way to move forward. Brexit ̵
Most politicians, economists and business groups believe leaving the world's largest trading bloc without a deal would be catastrophic. It will impose tariffs on trade between the UK and the EU, introduce customs controls that could cause congestion in ports and can cause a shortage of basic goods. what they call "pure Brexit". They called on May not to compromise and to speed up the preparations for leaving the bloc without agreement on April 12.
May has repeatedly said she did not believe that Parliament would allow Brexit to be a non-deal.
An alternative to a "no deal" departure is to postpone Brexit for at least a few months, and perhaps for more than a year, while the UK arranges the mess. The EU is disappointed by the deadlock and said it would provide another delay if the UK came up with an entirely new Brexit plan.
The bloc does not want to leave the UK, participating in the European Parliament elections from May 23-26. , but that should be done if Brexit slows down. However, EU Council President Donald Tusk urged the bloc to give Britain an extension of Brexit if it plans to change its course. It has also retained the possibility of Britain not leaving the bloc
MAY BREAKIT DEAL
After almost two years of negotiations, Britain and the EU entered into a divorce treaty in November, setting Britain's departure from the bloc and rude outlining future relationships.
But he was definitely rejected by lawmakers on both sides of the British division, Brexit. Legislators from the pro-brash party believe Britain holds UK too closely related to EU rules. EU legislators say it is worse than Britain's current status as an EU member.
Parliament threw it three times, although the last defeat, with 58 votes, is still the closest. It was rejected even after May, won by MPs who promised to quit if approved.
Mei is considering a final push by coping with everything agreed by Parliament in the hope of keeping Brexiteers
