Theresa May's Brexit deal suffers new blow

"Now we have this ruling to deal with, it is clearly going to require a lot of very fast but very deep thought in the hours ahead".

"What the government can not legitimately do is to resubmit to the House the same proposition or substantially the same proposition as that of last week which was rejected by 149 votes", he told MPs. Downing St. wouldn't say how long a delay she plans to ask for.

"However, it is worth noting that the government has already rowed back expectations for a third vote, with government ministers saying over the last day or so that they would only bring a vote if they thought they would win it", he said.

"Why would be there be an extension without a reason?" she said.

Eurosceptic MPs see the backstop as giving Brussels the power to lock Britian into a customs union with the EU indefinitely, and it's this concern that led to her deal being defeated by the biggest margin in parliamentary history in January, and again last week.

Prime Minister Theresa May could also introduce some changes to the non-binding Political Declaration on the future relationship between United Kingdom and the EU.

Mr Bercow was asked by Commons Brexit Committee chairman Hilary Benn whether there would have to be "new political agreement" for the Government to bring its deal back before MPs.

The prime minister will then head to a summit in Brussels on Thursday, in order to persuade the EU's 27 other leaders to agree unanimously to the Brexit delay, which could reportedly last for a year.

Meanwhile, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, hinted on Tuesday that Brussels will demand a clear answer to the question of how the government intends to proceed as the quid pro quo for granting an extension.

Lakers Rumors: Kyle Kuzma to be sidelined at least one week
Kuzma has already been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Denver Nuggets . "Cause someone is always watching". Just 2-6 over their last 8 games, the Lakers sit firmly in 10th place in the Western Conference.

Mrs Merkel said that current events were in a "state of flux", adding that European Union leaders will try to react to whatever the United Kingdom proposes.

Any extension would have to be approved by a vote in both houses of parliament next week, because the 29 March date is written into the EU Withdrawal Act. "I must say that I'm not in a position to speculate on what I will do on Thursday because it depends on what Theresa May will tell us".

Loiseau said United Kingdom lawmakers "have said no to a "no-deal" and they have said no to a realistic deal".

The bombshell ruling leaves May scrambling to avoid a chaotic no-deal departure in less than a fortnight, but European Union heavyweights Germany and France warned they would not agree to delay Brexit simply to save the PM's skin.

"What the government can not legitimately do is resubmit to the House the same proposition, or substantially the same proposition, as that of last week which was rejected by 149 votes". "It is up to the British government to decide very quickly what the United Kingdom wants to do next", Mr Barnier concluded.

But it said the EU must avoid damaging the legitimacy of the bloc's new European Parliament, which will convene for the first time on 2 July following 24-26 May elections across the bloc.

European Council President Donald Tusk also said he was waiting for clarity after a meeting with the Irish leader Leo Varadkar in Dublin.

Mrs May's spokesman said: "Before any further vote were to take place we would want to believe that we had a reasonable prospect of being successful".
