Pressure grows on May to publish Brexit legal advice

May said Monday that "I will still have a job in two weeks' time".

"We asked people to vote".

In a letter to the Speaker, signed by shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer, DUP Westminster leader Nigel Dodds and senior MPs from the SNP, Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru and Green Party, the Government was accused of failing to comply with the vote ordering the publication of the advice.

She is expected to say: "To deliver on that vote, we need to deliver a Brexit that respects the decision of the British people - a Brexit that takes back control of our borders, laws and money".

During that period nothing will change and the aim is to agree on a new permanent trade deal with Britain as a non-member of the EU. "It's imperative that it's resolved in a way that it does not reignite the Troubles", said Kerry, suggesting the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) could easily recommence its long campaign of assassinations and terror bombings again British soldiers, police officers, politicians, and civilians - despite its claims to have disarmed as a result of the 20-year-old peace deal. "Because right now if you look at the deal, they may not be able to trade with us ..."

She told This Morning hosts Philip Schofield and Rochelle Humes: "We can be better off".

"The question of whether it is one this House should take is a matter of political and policy judgment that each one of us must grapple with".

She will say that she had meetings with leaders keen to strike trade deals, including the hosts Argentina, Australia, Chile and Japan. It's going to be different from being in the EU.

However voters are also skeptical that a People's Vote would be held before Brexit day on March 29, 2019.

The move appeared to contradict the result of a binding parliamentary vote headed by Labour last month, which demanded ministers publish all of the advice they received on the proposed European Union withdrawal agreement.

Javid also said details of Britain's post-Brexit immigration system would not be published before the vote but he said it would bring net migration down to a sustainable level.

With the odds looking stacked against her, Mrs May is touring the country and media studios to try and win over critics including both eurosceptics and europhiles who say the deal will leave Britain a diminished state, still linked economically to the European Union but no longer having any say over the rules.

At a rowdy session of parliament, Attorney General Geoffrey Cox outlined the legal advice he had given to the government, including over a "backstop" arrangement to prevent the return of a hard border between Northern Ireland and EU member state Ireland if a future UK-EU trading deal is not reached in time.

Ministers have consistently argued that Mr Cox's advice is privileged in the same way as any given by a lawyer to a client, claiming that the Government will not be able function if it can not enjoy such confidentiality. "I just don't see that happening", Javid told BBC radio.

The Prime Minister will assert that her Brexit deal, thrashed out over months of negotiations in Brussels, delivers on her commitments to end free movement and the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.

The paper says it has seen a letter from Oliver Robbins, in which the negotiator said there was no legal "guarantee" that Britain would be able to break off from the backstop, potentially leaving the United Kingdom trapped in a customs union with the European Union.
