Brexit: UK tells EU to renegotiate or face no deal






'EU leaders must give their chief negotiator the mandate to revise the UK's withdrawal agreement, otherwise a no-deal Brexit is "coming down the tracks", the Brexit secretary has said.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, Stephen Barclay said "political realities" had changed after May's European elections.

New MEPs were elected in 61% of seats, he said, marking a "fundamental shift".

He called on EU leaders to allow Michel Barnier to negotiate in a way that finds "common ground" with the UK.

Brussels has consistently insisted that the withdrawal agreement - one of two main elements of Theresa May's Brexit deal, which was resoundingly rejected by MPs - cannot be renegotiated.

Mr Barclay said Mr Barnier had told him in their discussion last week that he is bound by the instructions given to him by the European Commission and leaders of member states.

But the change in the EU Parliament means there is a need for the EU to alter its approach, Mr Barclay said.

"Mr Barnier needs to urge EU leaders to consider this if they too want an agreement, to enable him to negotiate in a way that finds common ground with the UK. Otherwise, no deal is coming down the tracks," he said.'

Green MP - all-female emergency cabinet to stop no-deal Brexit

Green MP Caroline Lucas calls for all-female emergency cabinet to stop no-deal Brexit






'Caroline Lucas has asked 10 female politicians from all parties to join her in forming an "emergency cabinet" in a bid to stop a no-deal Brexit.
Writing in the Guardian,

Ms Lucas, whose party wants another Brexit referendum, said the aim would be to force a no-confidence vote in Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

She would then hope to form a "national unity government".

This arrangement - when a group of MPs of multiple parties choose to work together and form a government - has not been seen since the Second World War.

'Women can cooperate'

In her Guardian comment piece, Ms Lucas - who used to be the Green Party leader - wrote: "We need an 'emergency cabinet' - not to fight a Brexit war but to work for reconciliation.

"And I believe this should be a cabinet of women.

"Why women? Because I believe women have shown they can bring a different perspective to crises, are able to reach out to those they disagree with and cooperate to find solutions."

Under her proposals, the national unity government would "press the pause button" and organise another referendum offering a choice between Remain or the government's Brexit plan, whether that is an agreed deal or no deal.

She added: "This is not an attempt to replace one coup with another.

"A small group of us should not be deciding on Britain's future and that is not what lies behind my initiative.

"But we need to find a way forward that allows the British people to decide which course they want to take."'

Brexit: Corbyn plans to call no-confidence vote to defeat no-deal - yet another 'radical' with more interest in power than principle






'Jeremy Corbyn has urged the leaders of the other opposition parties and Tory rebels to install him as caretaker PM in order to stop a no-deal Brexit.

If he wins a no-confidence vote in the government, the Labour leader plans to delay Brexit, call a snap election and campaign for another referendum.

Mr Corbyn outlined his plan in a letter, saying the caretaker government would be "strictly time-limited".

Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson dismissed the plans as "nonsense".

Downing Street said Mr Corbyn would "overrule the referendum and wreck the economy" if he became prime minister.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he wants a deal with the European Union, but insists the UK must leave the bloc by 31 October "do or die".

Mr Corbyn said he would seek to call a no-confidence vote at the "earliest opportunity when we can be confident of success".

To defeat the government he would have to secure the backing of a majority of MPs.

In his letter, Mr Corbyn wrote: "This government has no mandate for no-deal, and the 2016 EU referendum provided no mandate for no-deal.

"Following a successful vote of no confidence in the government, I would then, as Leader of the Opposition, seek the confidence of the House for a strictly time-limited temporary government with the aim of calling a general election, and securing the necessary extension of Article 50 to do so."

If he were to succeed in calling a general election - which would require the support of two-thirds of MPs - Labour would campaign for a second referendum with the option to remain in the EU, he said.'

Boris Johnson says Irish backstop must be dropped if UK is to leave EU with a deal






'Boris Johnson has written to the EU, saying that the Irish backstop must be dropped if a deal is to take place.

The letter comes just hours after <strong><a href="https://www.itv.com/news/2019-08-19/number-10-freedom-of-movement-will-end-on-october-31-if-there-is-no-brexit-deal/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Downing Street said freedom of movement between the UK and the EU will end[/url]</strong> on Brexit day, if Britain leaves the bloc with no-deal.

'However, following conversations between the Prime Minister and the Irish premier, free movement between the UK and Ireland will still continue.

In his letter to EU Council President Donald Tusk outlining his opposition to the Irish backstop element of the Withdrawal Agreement, Mr Johnson said his Government's "highest priority" remains to leave with a deal, but this could not happen if the backstop remained part of the Withdrawal Agreement.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en">— Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson Aug 19th 2019[/size][/quote]

He added: "It is anti-democratic and inconsistent with the sovereignty of the UK as a state.

"The backstop locks the UK, potentially indefinitely, into an international treaty which will bind us into a customs union and which applies large areas of single market legislation in Northern Ireland.

"The treaty provides no sovereign means of exiting unilaterally and affords the people of Northern Ireland no influence over the legislation which applies to them."

Mr Johnson said he is committed to ensuring there is no return to a hard border on the island of Ireland.

He proposed "flexible and creative solutions to the unique circumstances on the island of Ireland".

He added: "I propose that the backstop should be replaced with a commitment to put in place such arrangements as far as possible before the end of the transition period, as part of the future relationship.

"I also recognise that there will need to be a degree of confidence about what would happen if these arrangements were not all fully in place at the end of that period.

"We are ready to look constructively and flexibly at what commitments might help, consistent of course with the principles set out in this letter."

Mr Johnson acknowledged that "time is very short" but said: "The UK is ready to move quickly, and, given the degree of common ground already, I hope that the EU will be ready to do likewise."
