Delaying Brexit for prolonged period 'disaster,' says DUP MP Robinson

UK unprepared for Brexit

The supporting sentiment heled sterling to rally more than 1.7% against the dollar this week, after British MPs voted to rule out leaving the European Union without a deal in place in a non-binding vote and backed a delay to Article 50 beyond the March 29 deadline.

Weston-super-Mare MP John Penrose voted in favour of the extension while the Wells and North Somerset representatives both opted against it.

Ms Mordaunt said: "I voted against delaying Brexit, but the Parliament agreed to an extension".

All three MPs previously voted in favour of Prime Minister Theresa May's exit deal and against leaving the European Union with no-deal.

The UK Government would have to take further steps to stop that happening. "Now, what happens this morning is that the entire cabinet has accepted the position that parliament voted for last night".

In the pouring rain in Sunderland, northeast England, which was the first place in Britain to declare a vote to leave the EU, Farage, wearing a flat cap and carrying an umbrella, said Brexit was now in danger of being scuttled by the establishment.

The government said it would ask for a "technical" delay until 30 June to pass necessary legislation if MPs finally approve the deal next week.

On December 11th 2018 the assistant editor and chief political correspondent at The Telegraph, Christopher Hope, reported that the Prime Minister was "clear on Article 50 - it will NOT be extended beyond 29 March [2019]".

Mrs May has put forward two deals to Parliament, both of which have been rejected in an overwhelming majority.

Even if the deadline is unanimously agreed, the Prime Minister will still need to get a deal through the Houses of Commons, which is now divided on the matter of the Irish back-stop.

With less than two weeks before Britain is due to leave the EU, Mrs May seems to be clinging on to her waning authority by a thread after a series of humiliating defeats.

Mrs May will also look to get her deal passed through the House of Commons again, with plans to hold another vote next week. Options in the longer term might include agreeing to a softer kind of Brexit, holding a general election or a new referendum.

Despite the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Brexit which has served to weaken the pound, MPs decision to take a no-deal Brexit off the table this week and avert severely damaging the United Kingdom economy gave investors a reason to send sterling higher.
