Brexit: MPs talk ‘absolute nonsense’ while objecting to talks - leader comment

	 		Barnier says chaotic Brexit becomes ever more likely				Apr 02 2019

Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay reportedly said that the government would continue to seek support for a "credible" plan for leaving the EU. It can gamble on a fourth attempt to push May's unloved deal through Parliament, let Britain tumble out of the bloc without a deal, or roll the dice by seeking a snap election to shake up Parliament.

"The survey is also picking up signs that European Union companies are switching away from sourcing inputs from United Kingdom firms as Brexit approaches", Rob Dobson, the head of IHS Markit, the London-based firm which carried out the survey, said.

May will convene a meeting of her Cabinet on Tuesday, likely to last five hours, to hash out a plan.

It marks another blow for wounded Prime Minister Theresa May, who has failed to get her negotiated deal through the Commons twice.

BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said a third set of so-called indicative votes could still take place alongside this process, but the focus of the cross-party group was now approving the bill - with the hope that it will pass on Thursday.

A vote on plans for a second referendum went down by 292 to 280.

A government analysis leaked to the Daily Mail suggests a "no deal" scenario would undermine Britain's security capabilities, cause a recession, and increase the cost of food by up to 10 percent.

May had already ruled out all the ideas under consideration.

Speaking at an event in Brussels after the British parliament rejected alternatives to Prime Minister Theresa May's divorce deal, Barnier said Britain now had three choices before the April 12 leaving date.

"We are now in a really risky situation with a serious and growing risk of no-deal in 10 days" time, ' said opposition Labour lawmaker, Yvette Cooper, who has proposed the legislation alongside eleven others from several political parties, including members of May's Conservatives. The country was supposed to have left the bloc on 29 March but missed the deadline.

It was originally defeated by 295 votes to 268. But the deputy leader of the opposition Labour Party, Tom Watson, said his party was on election footing. The Government would promise to deliver whatever Parliament decides.

Mr Macron said if a decision were not made soon, Britain would have chosen a "de facto" no-deal Brexit. According to the UK's Revenue and Customs authority, there will be a 13-billion-pound (about 17 billion USA dollars) annual increase in costs for British firms to fulfill customs declarations duties when exporting to the EU.

The chief executive of industrial manufacturer Siemens U.K. implored lawmakers to unite around a compromise deal, saying "Brexit is exhausting our business and wrecking the country's tremendous reputation as an economic powerhouse".

Exit without a deal would affect trade and travel overnight, with new checks on borders and new regulations on dealings between Britain and the 27 remaining European Union nations.

Even when the House of Commons voted on alternative Brexit options, nothing earned the approval of a majority of voters.

"A hard Brexit becomes almost inevitable", warned Guy Verhofstadt, who chairs the European Parliament's Brexit Steering group, after the votes.
