Scenarios That Could Emerge from Tuesday's Critical Brexit Vote

Finally, a Big Week for Brexit

May secures new assurrances from EU

According to Geoffrey Cox, the United Kingdom may not be able to leave the Irish backstop without the EU's agreement.

Or will they accept that this deal is the only one on the table, and that nothing else is possible between now and either March 29 or June 30 - so they simply must hold their noses and vote for it, to avoid political chaos and a possible no-deal Brexit?

Britain must leave the European Union by the time EU voters elect a new European Parliament on 23-26 May or will have to elect its own EU lawmakers, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has said, writes Alastair Macdonald in Brussels.

The cross crashed around 320-pips, eroding a major part of the previous session's goodish up-move and was further pressurized by a modest pull-back in equity markets, which provided a minor lift to the Japanese Yen's safe-haven status. The legal situation remains effectively unchanged, as May's attorney general, Geoffrey Cox, confirmed Tuesday.

Intensive discussions led by the Labour MPs Stephen Kinnock and Lucy Powell are under way over the wording of a potential backbench amendment that might be close enough to Labour's version of Brexit to allow the leadership to support it.

Writing to EU summit chairman Donald Tusk after agreeing a deal to break the Brexit deadlock with British Prime Minister Theresa May, Juncker wrote: "The United Kingdom's withdrawal should be complete before the European elections that will take place between May 23-26 this year".

"MPs were clear that legal changes were needed to the backstop".




May's Attorney General Geoffrey Cox is expected to set out his formal legal opinion on the changes on Tuesday.

The back-stop measure is meant to reassure Britain it won't be trapped forever in a mechanism created to prevent a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

After Parliament rejected the deal in a defeat of historic proportions in January, May promised to seek changes to address these concerns.

The two sides then announced a three-part package of legally-binding changes to the old deal.

"Now is the time to come together, to back this improved Brexit deal, and to deliver on the instruction of the British people", May said.

The changes fall short of demands of hardcore UK Brexiteers, but may persuade some politicians to switch their votes.

The main sticking point is a measure to ensure the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland remains open, a key issue for Varadkar's government.
