As Brexit looms, UK 'preppers' stock up and hunker down

As Brexit looms, UK 'preppers' stock up and hunker down

Farming Minister George Eustice has quit the Government over Theresa May's decision to allow MPs to vote on extending Brexit negotiations beyond the scheduled withdrawal date of March 29.

With the 29 March deadline only a couple weeks away, Khan is expected to say he is "still uncertain about whether parliament will prevent a no-deal scenario from occurring".

Because a majority of lawmakers opposes a "no-deal" Brexit, Parliament's choice is effectively between backing May's deal and postponing Britain's departure from the EU.

"Our absolute focus should be on getting a deal that can command support in Parliament on March 29". It sets out a plan to put into law a commitment that, by March 18, Parliament must have either approved an exit deal, backed a no-deal Brexit, or May must have requested an extension to the Article 50 negotiating period.

May wants to negotiate changes to the departure deal she agreed with the European Union a year ago and has promised to bring it back for approval in parliament by March 12 at the latest.

"The U.K.'s decision to leave the European Union creates a new opportunity to expand and deepen the U.S. -U.K. trade relationship", U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer's office said in the paper.

Until May conceded the possibility of an extension - the EU Council President Donald Tusk said it would be a "rational solution" - there were growing fears about a "no-deal" Brexit and what its impact would be on both sides of the English Channel.

"T$3 he best way to protect the rights of these 4.5 million people concerned is through the Withdrawal Agreement", insisted European Commission spokeswoman Mina Andreeva.

Mobile postpones official 5G service rollout
With the launch in May, Sprint joins AT&T as the first two companies to turn on mobile 5G networks in the country. Collectively, the nine city launch will make 5G available in 1,000 square miles by June of next year.

But the change in course did little to draw London and Brussels closer to an agreement over how to end a 46-year partnership that Britons narrowly voted to end in a June 2016 referendum.

Lawmakers will get a chance to vote on the emergency measure on Wednesday.

If Britain's Attorney General Geoffrey Cox can clinch a legal fudge, he would be able to change his legal advice and that, it is hoped, would bring Brexit-supporting Conservative Party MPs behind the deal.

Austria's leader says he would like to see Brexit resolved before the European Parliament elections in late May because it would be "absurd" for a country that wants to leave the European Union to vote for its legislature.

Labour MP for Manchester Central, Lucy Powell, claims around 25 MPs would vote against any second referendum, meaning that without significant support from Tory MPs, it would struggle to pass the Commons.

Britain needs to be "ready to face down the European Union here and now", he said in his resignation letter to the Prime Minister.

He said he leaves government with "tremendous sadness" praising Defra's "phenomenal expertise".

"Speaking objectively, we don't need more time, we need a decision", Barnier said, adding that he remained determined to work towards securing an exit deal.
