Theresa May warns of catastrophe if lawmakers don't back Brexit deal

Blocking Brexit could open door to extremist political forces Grayling warns

Blocking Brexit could open door to extremist political forces Grayling warns

While Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay said there had been "some movement" from MPs to support the agreement which is widely expected to be defeated, he said he thought that if it fell the Commons would eventually support something "along the lines of this deal".

He added: "My own view is that I would rather get a negotiated deal now if we can to stop the danger of a no-deal exit from the European Union on 29 March which would be catastrophic for industry, catastrophic for trade".

The Scottish Government has written to all MPs in Westminster, urging them to reject Theresa May's Brexit deal when it is put to a vote on Tuesday.

British opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Sunday that exiting the European Union without a deal would be "catastrophic" and he would prefer an agreement is reached than a second referendum held.

He said people should "see what happens" following Tuesday's critical vote. And Brexit paralysis ultimately could lead to no Brexit.

"We are big enough, and strong enough, and able enough to do that". "We ignore that and the will of the people at our peril".

This will be a crucial week for the future of Scotland, but I urge MPs not to think just of the days to come but of the generations to come.

Insisting that he had not given up hope of victory in next week's vote, he said: "What is important is for MPs on all sides, Brexiters and Remainers, whatever our disagreements, to say "We are democrats and the most important thing now is to make sure that we really do deliver Brexit".

Could a Norway-style Brexit deal gain in popularity?

It was not possible for the minority Tory administration to control what happened in parliament, and Speaker John Bercow had shown that he was "willing to frustrate the government at every opportunity", he said.

Corbyn said: "What I'm saying is we're campaigning for a country that is brought together by investment", adding that people were "very, very angry about the way they've been treated in their different communities around the country".

Blocking Brexit could lead to a surge in far-right extremism in the United Kingdom, the transport secretary has said.

The vote had been scheduled to take place in December but was called off at the last minute by the prime minister, who was facing nearly certain defeat.

"I don't like the prospect of a no deal".

Ms Rudd said it was "right" for the government to make preparations for a no-deal Brexit, comparing it to wearing a seatbelt when driving a fast auto. "I am committed to getting the best outcome for this country, which is supporting the prime minister's deal".
