Jeremy Corbyn dangerously deluded on customs union, say Brexiteers

May urges U.K. legislators to allow more time to get Brexit deal

The UK parliament last month roundly rejected a Brexit deal Prime Minister Theresa May had sealed with the remaining 27 EU leaders

British Secretary of State for International Trade Liam Fox, Swiss Federal Councillor Guy Parmelin and Liechtenstein's Foreign Minister Aurelia Frick shake hands after signing a trade agreement in Bern, Switzerland.

Boris Johnson (pictured inset top) offered Theresa May a sliver of hope by saying he could said he could vote for her deal - if she can get a time limit on the backstop.

"I think that gives that sense of timetable, clarity and objective on what we are doing with the European Union - taking that work forward and our determination to get a deal - but equally knowing that role that Parliament very firmly has", he said on BBC's Andrew Marr Show. Supporters accuse Mrs May of trying to run down the clock until Brexit day so she can effectively say to MPs that it is her deal or no deal.

Her response comes ahead of another week of Brexit debate and voting in Westminster.

Prime Minister Theresa May will pledge this week to give parliament another chance to voice their opinions on Brexit by February 27 as she tries to buy more time to negotiate a new deal with the European Union.

"He now wants to frustrate Brexit very largely by staying in a permanent customs union".




Mrs Leadsom said there was "no chance" Mrs May would adopt Mr Corbyn's "view of the world", adding: 'The Prime Minister has been absolutely clear we're leaving the EU, we're leaving the customs union, we're leaving the single market'.

The Leave campaign figurehead was speaking as Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay prepared for talks with European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier as the Government stepped up efforts to secure changes to the backstop, which is created to keep the Irish border open after the UK's withdrawal.

This is of huge economic importance to United Kingdom businesses so I'm delighted to be here in Bern today, ensuring continuity for 15,000 British exporters. Not only will this help to support jobs throughout the United Kingdom but it will also be a solid foundation for us to build an even stronger trading relationship with Switzerland as we leave the EU.

For remaining European Union members, Mr Bettel says the ongoing uncertainty in London "puts us in a position where we don't know what is likely to happen tomorrow". The warnings came after Treasury chief secretary Liz Truss refused to rule out resigning if Mrs May backed a customs union.

Labour wants to force the government to bring back a "meaningful vote" on Theresa May's Brexit deal by the end of this month. Although lawmakers asked for the backstop to be removed, May has said since that the backstop will remain, and that Parliament merely asked for it to be altered.

In the meantime, Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay has been meeting members of the Alternative Arrangements Working Group of Tories drawn from all sides of the party who have been seeking a compromise solution to avoid the need for the controversial backstop.
