Theresa May's team are considering a People's Vote

Government publishes Brexit legal advice in full

After a string of humiliating parliamentary defeats for May the day before cast new doubt over her ability to get a deal approved, U.S. investment bank J P Morgan said the chances of Britain calling off Brexit altogether had increased.

As well as losing the contempt vote, the Government was also forced to allow MPs to have a say in what happens next if the Brexit deal is voted down on Tuesday.

But, on a day when Theresa May suffered three Brexit defeats in the Commons - in which ministers agreed to publish the government's full legal advice on the deal - Mr Benyon justified his decision to rebel against his party in search of a "pragmatic" Brexit.

May used an interview on BBC radio on Thursday to press on with her bid to persuade lawmakers to back her deal.

All eyes will be on Westminster on Tuesday when MPs vote on Mrs May's under-fire deal.

'The most important thing is to have clarity about how we might remove ourselves from a backstop, ' Sir Graham told the BBC's Newsnight.

The advice, which is only six pages long, is being avidly read by MPs in the House of Commons in real time, suggests that because of the nature of the Irish backstop arrangement in the Brexit deal, the United Kingdom could be trapped in "protracted and repeated rounds of negotiations" for years ahead.

Mrs May is reportedly dead set on delivering the result of the 2016 referendum and "loses her temper and raises her voice" when the prospect of a re-run of the vote is raised.

'If a bad Brexit is forced upon our country and jobs and the economy are not protected, many of our people who have suffered from eight years of austerity will suffer even more, ' he said.

Apple is finally selling its iPhone XR clear case
Last December, Apple was caught in a storm after it confessed that it was slowing down the performance of older iPhone models. The new way of positioning the iPhone XR as a $449 device appeared on Apple's website on Sunday.

The announcement came amid suggestions from ministers that she should find ways to avoid losing the vote, which could bring down the government, or see Britain leave the bloc without a deal.

"The alternative is uncertainty and risk - the risk Brexit could be stopped, the risk we could crash out with no deal".

Meanwhile supporters of the beleaguered PM published a plan to reduce the chances of the Northern Ireland backstop coming into force - in the hope it would help the deal pass in parliament.

Brexiteers and Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, which props up May's government, worry that the proposed deal could leave Britain under European Union regulations indefinitely, or Northern Ireland could be treated differently to the rest of the UK.

"In the implementation period, we still have to negotiate the terms, but there will be concerns about the fact that they would require, I'm sure they would require, some more money to be paid, for example".

"People have a concern of the backstop, that we could be in it indefinitely".

And he said that - despite assurances from both London and Brussels that it is meant to be temporary - the protocol would "endure indefinitely" under worldwide law until another agreement takes its place.

She said the agreement she negotiated with the European Union was "a good deal and one that delivers on the referendum".

She said it would not be in the "national interest" to block the Withdrawal Agreement, adding: "The only certainty would be uncertainty".
