UNITED KINGDOM Brexit: Chancellor calls for cross-party compromise
PM’s deputy warns of ‘sustained’ uncertainty of long Brexit extension

'While an extension of Article 50 is now inevitable, responsibility for that extension lies exclusively and squarely at the Prime Minister's door'.
The leader of UK Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, slammed on Tuesday the new arrangements regarding the Brexit deal, reached by UK Prime Minister Theresa May and the European Commission, saying that the result of negotiations did not even remotely resemble the changes that May had pledged to secure.
Mrs May, who is now chairing a cabinet meeting, has said Tory MPs will get a free vote on Wednesday evening's motion.
Warning MPs they faced "hard choices" after rejecting her deal for a second time, she said she would vote later to rule out a no-deal exit on 29 March.
It said backing for the PM's deal has now more than doubled to 40% - though the responses had been given before the Commons voted to take a no-deal Brexit off the table on Wednesday night. And based on MPs' objections to her deal to date, it's unclear what could be added in order to turn over such a huge loss.
Ahead of the no-deal Commons vote, the government announced that most imports into the United Kingdom would not attract a tariff in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
As things stand, her deal looks no closer to passing a vote in parliament. Tariffs would be maintained to protect some industries, including agriculture.
MPs voted 412-202 in favour of a government motion extending Article 50.
Labour wants no-deal to be "taken off the table" and is likely to back an amendment - a legislative tool - tabled by MPs Jack Dromey and Caroline Spelman ruling out the United Kingdom leaving without an agreement at any stage in the process.
Within government, there is renewed optimism that success is possible.
'This means doing what the Prime Minister failed to do two years ago in searching for a consensus on the way forward, ' he said.
The decision to drop all checks to avoid friction at the UK's land border with the European Union will be temporary while longer term solutions are negotiated.
Speaking after the defeat, she said MPs would have to decide whether they want to delay Brexit, hold another referendum, or whether they "want to leave with a deal but not this deal". "So can the prime minister tell us, exactly what her plan is now?" Instead she is heading for a third meaningful vote next week.
Meanwhile, Michel Barnier, the EU's chief negotiator, warned Tuesday that the European Union was no longer interested in negotiating a new deal.
Obviously, should May's deal completely fail next week and new options need to be explored, it will take a lot longer than 6-8 weeks to sort this out. To do this, ministers have promised indicative votes if the Government can't pass a deal - but, importantly, at a time of their choosing.
