https://www.express.co.uk/news/politics ... ay-no-dealBrexit LIVE: May to CAVE in to Labour and accept EU RULES in major Brexit deal climbdown
The Prime Minister is considering supporting Labour demands to safeguard workers’ rights using legislation that would enshrine EU standards as the Brexit Day clock ticks louder. With just 78 days to go until the UK leaves the European Union, Mrs May is looking at introducing an amendment that would keep the bloc’s rules on pay and conditions, health and safety and environmental standards
Hargreaves Lansdown co-founder Peter Hargreaves and hedge fund veteran Crispin Odey have said they expect Brexit will not happen, despite both backing the Leave campaign prior to the 2016 referendum.
The pair told Reuters their pessimism stems from the Brexit deadlock in Parliament, which is set to vote on Prime Minister Theresa May's controversial agreement on Tuesday (15 January).
The Odey Asset Management founder has now amassed a position in favour of sterling, which he expects to bounce in the event Brexit is cancelled.
She did, but it's nonsense. I know of no reason that the UK can't exceed minimum EU standards.
More detail:Who do I serve?
Who do I serve? Is it you, the residents of Grantham, Stamford, Bourne and the villages and farms in between? Is it the members of the local Conservative association and those elected to its executive and branches? Is it Theresa May, the Prime Minister, and her Chief Whip? Some of them are demanding loyalty, insisting that I fall in with their way of thinking. The Prime Minister and the Chief Whip demand that I support the Government as it prepares for a “no deal” Brexit. The chairman and officers of my local association demand that I submit to the views of the most extreme Brexiteers in our party, many of whom are former members of UKIP and only joined the Conservative Party in the last few months. Well I won’t do it. I won’t be bullied. Not even when some pathetic inadequate sitting on his sofa in his underpants posts a message on my website calling me a traitor and telling me I should ‘prepare to die’. (Been there, done that, got the T shirt).
My loyalty - my only loyalty - is to the people I was elected to represent in Parliament. Conservatives and those who voted for other parties or didn’t vote at all. Leavers, Remainers and those who didn’t take part in the referendum. Those who are in their dotage, or at death’s door and those who are too young to vote.
LONDON — Sources within the campaign for another Brexit referendum have told Business Insider that they must get Jeremy Corbyn on board within the next few weeks or it is "game over" for the prospect of forcing a second vote.
Sources within the People's Vote campaign said they estimate there are currently just 175 out of the House of Commons' 650 MPs who are willing to support another referendum.
This includes 116 Labour MPs, some of whom are shadow Cabinet ministers. But crucially, not the Labour leader.
"We need to move Jeremy Corbyn or it's game over," one of the People's Vote leading figures told Business Insider.
I read the Boles statement last night and this comment stood out. Entryists. I wonder if enough have made it into Remain-MPs' local associations to trigger and win deselection competitions.The chairman and officers of my local association demand that I submit to the views of the most extreme Brexiteers in our party, many of whom are former members of UKIP and only joined the Conservative Party in the last few months.
