Brexit temporary BreakThrough: May had no option other wise

May claimed UK wont get better document on their table if they wont second and own the document she has with her. It wont be anything more than division and uncertainty which is no more in favor of Britain

They need to understand and trust on the efforts we have been doing for more than 18 months now. Nothing is more apt for British people than the document i have for EU. I am doing my best efforts to bring MP all together to back my document and that’s the best in their interests.

For me there is no option or thought as NO BR EXIT deal because that’s what we got vote for in referendum in 2016 so its just an implementation of the mandate people given and we are delivering it.

A competent prime minister might have used the time to press home her advantage. To give a television statement in which she talked up the historic nature of her achievement. That she secured a Brexit deal that would deliver on the will of the people. The sunlit uplands were in touching distance. But May just couldn’t bring herself to do that.

Breaking News Brexit

British travelers will not need visas to visit the European Union for short stays even if there is a no-deal Brexit, the European Commission has said.

Britains will now enter EU under

Commissioners made the recommendation to put the UK on the visa-exempt list at a meeting in Strasbourg on Tuesday. The policy is dependent on the UK continuing to offer reciprocal visa-free access for EU citizens.

To what extent British citizens will have the right to work in the EU or move there long-term are separate to the question of travel visas; these questions will be settled as part of the future relationship negotiations between the EU and UK, expected to commence next year.

The move on visas is part of the EU’s intensified planning for a possible no-deal Brexit. In a statement, the European Commission said: “The European Commission has today proposed to grant UK citizens visa-free travel to the EU after the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union.

“It would mean that UK citizens would not need a visa when travelling to the Scavenge area for short stays of up to 90 days in any 180-day period. In the scenario where the UK leaves the EU without a deal, this would apply as of 30 March 2019. If a deal is reached, however, it would apply as of the end of the transition period, as outlined in the withdrawal agreement. This follows the commission’s continued commitment that citizens’ rights must come first in the negotiations on the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.

“This proposal is entirely conditional upon the UK also granting reciprocal and non-discriminatory visa-free travel for all EU member states, in line with the principle of visa reciprocity. The UK government has declared its intention not to require a visa from citizens of the EU 27 member states for shorts stays for the purposes of tourism and business. EU rules on non-EU nationals travelling to the EU, such as those on border control, would of course apply to UK citizens once they are no longer EU citizens.”

The visa-free policy covers the 22 EU member countries that are members of the Schengen area and the four Schengen-associated states – Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. It will also apply to Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia and Cyprus, which are outside Schengen but coordinate their policies with it.

Intractable problems?

EU negotiators – having agreed that the UK as a whole may enter a “temporary” customs territory with the EU to avoid the emergence of a hard Irish border – did not seem at all willing to shift their consistent position and sanction an escape clause for the UK to quit the arrangement at its own discretion whether the EU likes it or not.

All week, Cabinet Brexiteers and like-minded Tory colleagues have been loudly demanding exactly that.

And they’ve argued the UK conceded that principle last December. 

Mrs May and the UK government has insisted, and still insists, they can’t, won’t and never will weaken the integrity of the UK. 

To the question: will Britain allow Northern Ireland to function under the full range of EU customs and market rules, while mainland Britain does not?, the answer is a very clear “no”.

The problem of finding an agreement have seemed intractable. Squaring the Cabinet without resignations may be hard, Securing Parliamentary approval could be a political mission impossible. But Theresa May looks to have decided she has no option but to give it a try.
