House of Lords vetoes a 'no deal' Brexit

GETTY PADavid Davis said Labour's amendments to the Brexit Bill will not deliver the outcome Britons deserve

Theresa May David Davis

Speaking ahead of a regular Cabinet meeting, the International Trade Secretary said such a move could lead to the United Kingdom being in the European Union "indefinitely".

Brexit Minister Lord Callanan said: "What this amendment would do is weaken the UK's hand in our negotiations with the European Union by giving Parliament unprecedented powers to instruct the Government to do anything with regard to the negotiations - including trying to keep the United Kingdom in the European Union indefinitely".

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, he conceded that gaining enough votes in a hung parliament would be hard.

Trade secretary Liam Fox hit back Tuesday, saying: "I think there's a very big debate now about whether the unelected house can actually thwart the view of the British electorate in a referendum and... legislation coming from the House of Commons".

But on Monday the House of Lords voted for what they believe is a more meaningful say over the final Brexit offer.

"I don't think he does understand the wider unionist culture of Northern Ireland".

"If we are in a customs union of any sort we will have less ability to shape Britain's future than we have today".

United Nations envoys meet with Myanmar leader over refugee crisis
Myanmar has said its operations in Rakhine were a legitimate response to attacks on security forces by Rohingya insurgents. Rohingya are denied citizenship in overwhelmingly Buddhist Myanmar, where they've faced persecution for decades.

The government maintains that it is open to Parliament being able to scrutinise the final deal, and has therefore committed to giving both Houses a vote on the final deal.

The British government faced pressure over Brexit at home and overseas Monday, including a defeat in Parliament over who gets the final say on an exit deal with the European Union.

It would spell the end of the "take it or leave it" approach promised by ministers, under which the only alternative to accepting a deal thrashed out by Mrs May and Brussels would be the United Kingdom leaving without a deal.

Lord Hailsham, who introduced the amendment, told peers ahead of the vote that the Brexit referendum was "at best" an "interim decision" and the people's decision should be "tested" in a second vote.

Sir Keir urged the Prime Minister to accept the cross-party amendment, warning that there was "no majority in Parliament for a no-deal Brexit".

But former Conservative leader Lord Howard said the idea of effectively giving Parliament a veto over Brexit - which the public voted for in a 2016 referendum - was "fundamentally misconceived".
