European Union proposes visa-free travel for Britons after Brexit

Meanwhile, shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer said this week that parliament will not allow the United Kingdom to leave the European Union without a deal and if 400 or so MPs were opposed to a no-deal Brexit, it would be able to force May and her team to come to an agreement with the bloc.

Officials have said for weeks that agreement on divorce terms and a framework for future U.K. -EU relations was 95 percent complete, and for several days negotiators have been meeting late into the night in Brussels in a bid to close the remaining gaps.

Cabinet ministers are being called into Downing Street where a reading room has been set up.

The apparent breakthrough came after months of protracted talks in Brussels with measures to prevent a hard border on the island of Ireland being the main obstacle to a deal.

Britain is set to leave the European Union on the 29th March 2019.

British and European negotiators have also agreed on a text that deals with the Irish border, the most vexed issue in the Brexit negotiations, Irish broadcaster RTE said on Tuesday, citing two "well-placed" sources.

Mr Eastwood said: "The SDLP are glad to hear that an agreement might have been reached and we look forward to reading the text of that agreement in detail".

Both Leave and Remain campaigners fear the deal - whose outlines are well known though it has not yet been made public - will be a limp compromise that fails to deliver either the letter or spirit of the Brexit the country asked for.

Black Panther creator Stan Lee dead at 95
Lee, born Stanley Lieber on December 28, 1922, began his career in 1939 and joined the Marvel Comics in 1961, Xinhua reported. He loved his life and he loved what he did for a living.

On Tuesday, the European Commission published a sheaf of notices outlining changes in a host of areas in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

The signatories warned the Government against attempts to "muzzle Parliament" when it comes to examining the Brexit deal. They point to major disruption for people and businesses: United Kingdom truckers' licenses won't be valid in the EU, British airlines will no longer enjoy traffic rights, and even British mineral water will cease to be recognized as such by the EU.

In her annual address to the Lord Mayor's Banquet on Monday, the prime minister confirmed the negotiations were approaching the "endgame", but said there were still "significant" issues standing in the way of an agreement.

He said if her plan was implemented that would be the FIRST time that parliament won't be able to make its own laws.

"If what we've heard is true, this fails to meet the Conservative Party's manifesto, and it fails to meet numerous commitments the prime minister makes", Conservative Jacob Rees-Mogg, one of the hard-line leaders of the Brexit campaign, told the BBC.

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, whose party has indicated it would reject the deal, said he would await further details but added: "This is unlikely to be a good deal for the country".

"But the kicker is - and I think people haven't really grasped this - the kicker is that we haven't even really managed to protect the union between Great Britain and Northern Ireland", he said.

The DUP's Nigel Dodds said the party "couldn't possibly vote for" the deal.
