  • Maas: Exit from Brexit 'extremely unlikely'

May, writing in The Sunday Telegraph newspaper, shed little light on how she meant to solve the issue that has provoked most opposition from her lawmakers, post-Brexit arrangements for the border between the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The German foreign minister also rejected British attempts at obtaining further concessions that can satisfy hardliners and critics of the deal in London.

Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union on March 29, but United Kingdom politicians are divided over Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan.

She said: "It's why when I return to Brussels I will be battling for Britain and Northern Ireland, I will be armed with a fresh mandate, new ideas and a renewed determination to agree a pragmatic solution that delivers the Brexit the British people voted for, while ensuring there is no hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland".

In the Sunday Times, the Irish deputy prime minister said the backstop is there for a good reason - to keep the border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic open after Brexit. The leaders are to discuss preparations for a no-deal Brexit in the event that the withdrawal agreement is not ratified.

Vehicle giant Nissan announced Sunday it was cancelling plans to build its X-Trail SUV at its plant in northeast England, saying that "the UK's future relationship with the European Union is not helping".

She said she would be "battling for Britain" to ensure that there was no hard border in Ireland. "Now that same British public wants us to get on and finish the job", she added.

LONDON - Last week, Theresa May was sent back to Brussels to renegotiate her Brexit deal.

On Wednesday will vote on EU-great-grandson, Donald Tusk, with the Irish Prime Minister, Leo Varadkar.

Under the current Brexit deal, the 310-mile Irish border would become the only land border between the European Union and the UK. Fox told Sky News.

Fox, who has previously spoken out strongly against delaying the exit date, said extending the negotiations without a deal in place would not solve anything, but it was "a very different argument" if Britain just needed more time to get the necessary legislation in place for a smooth exit.

"Are they really saying that they would rather not negotiate and end up in a "no deal" position?", he said.

May is due to report back to parliament on her negotiations with the European Union on 13 February, a few weeks after she secured MPs' support to go back to Brussels.

May also said that she is determined to deliver Brexit, and determined to deliver on time on March 29, 2019.
