Has Theresa May Finally Pulled Off Her Brexit Deal? HuffPost Verdict

Britain's Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union David Davis delivers a speech in London on Britain's vision for the future security relationship with the EU. British media outlets say the most Has Theresa May Finally Pulled Off Her Brexit Deal? HuffPost Verdict

The cabinet - including Mr Davis - all signed up to the proposals after a meeting at Chequers last week.

Keir Starmer, the shadow Brexit secretary, claimed May's plans were unworkable and a "fudge" that would be a bureaucratic nightmare to implement, as he called on the prime minister to put them to a vote in the Commons next week.

After a marathon 12-hour meeting at her Chequers residence on Friday, the prime minister seemed to have persuaded the most vocal Brexit campaigners in her cabinet to back plans for a new UK-EU agreement.

The full "White Paper" on Brexit is expected to be published by Thursday, when there could be demands for another Commons statement, possibly by the Brexit Secretary David Davis.

Since Friday, several more Conservative MPs were said to have added their names to a list supporting a vote of no confidence, although No 10 insiders have indicated May would fight any challenge and the numbers looked to be in her favour.

Labour Party chairman Ian Lavery said: 'This is absolute chaos and Theresa May has no authority left.

Other backbenchers have backed the aforementioned Jacob Rees-Mogg, with one describing the Somerset MP as "our Churchill".

Michael Gove has urged Eurosceptic Conservative MPs to rally behind Theresa May as she prepares to face down her backbench critics in person before publishing a white paper on leaving the EU.

Ireland's foreign minister said on Sunday the proposal was a significant move towards a much less disorderly Brexit, though tough negotiations still lie ahead.

Haddish also explained that a man has never bought her a vehicle and that she has always had to make auto payments. Tiffany Haddish was gifted a Tesla auto by Tyler Perry after the actress claimed the model was her dream vehicle.

He said he would "listen to what the Prime Minister has got to say on Monday evening at the 1922 Committee" before deciding what action to take.

"It is not practicable in customs terms to guarantee free goods transit between the European Union and Britain as well as own free trade agreements with third countries, as Britain wants", said Thilo Brodtmann, head of Germany's Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA). Whether the Prime Minister will be able to get her plans past the Brextremists in her own party let alone Brussels remains to be seen.

The prime minister's plan, which will be assessed by the EU, would result in the creation of a new UK-EU free trade area for goods, with a "common rulebook". "If the EU says we have to be in the European Economic Area [an even softer Brexit] and accept free movement, the party will blow up".

It would involve a "facilitated customs arrangement" meant to remove the need for a hard border in Ireland, and the creation of a UK-EU free-trade area, in which the UK would abide by a "common rule book" of EU regulations.

European Union negotiators want to study the full 120-page White Paper - to be published by Downing Street on Thursday - but yesterday expressed scepticism about whether the new British plan will be acceptable to Brussels.

The bloc has long warned it will not accept any "cherry-picking" in relation to the single market's four freedoms on goods, services, people and capital.

Mr Davis was appointed Brexit secretary in 2016 and was responsible for negotiating the United Kingdom withdrawal from the EU.

'Michel Barnier will be a very, very strong defender of the EU interests here, in terms of protecting the integrity of the single market and the integrity of the EU customs union'.
