May warns MPs against 'catastrophic' failure to deliver Brexit

Chuka Umunna said the country is crying out for leadership

On Friday, her foreign minister Jeremy Hunt said Brexit might not happen at all if May's deal was defeated.

Theresa May has warned of a "catastrophic and unforgivable breach of trust" in democracy if MPs reject her Brexit deal and the United Kingdom remains in the European Union.

Mr Hunt warned that failure to deliver Brexit would be "incredibly damaging" for the United Kingdom and something the country would regret for "many, many generations".

He told the BBC: "We will table a motion of no confidence in the government at a time of our choosing, but it's going to be soon, don't worry about it".

He described the prospect of no deal the same way as Corbyn.

"I think it's now looking much less likely that parliament would allow a no-deal outcome", he told the BBC.

Labour is also set to vote against the deal, but leader Jeremy Corbyn has resisted growing calls from within his own party to get behind another European Union referendum, insisting a general election is still his top priority if the deal is rejected.

He warned that this road plan could lead to the expulsion of Khan Al-Ahmar village and more than 21 other Palestinian communities. Israel says the barrier is necessary for security, but for Palestinians it has become a symbol of the occupation.

But he went on to say: "My own view is that I'd rather get a negotiated deal now, if we can, to stop the danger of a no-deal exit from the European Union on March 29 - which would be catastrophic for industry, catastrophic for trade and the long-term effects of that would be huge".

On Monday the debate on the meaningful vote on Mrs May's deal will resume for a fourth day.

Labour peer Lord Andrew Adonis, who is a prominent Remainer, slammed Grayling and in a tweet wrote: "At the end of Brexit there should a one clause bill banning Grayling from holding any further public office ... unless of course it's overturned by a people's vote". "We ignore that and the will of the people at our peril".

Corbyn said: "What I'm saying is we're campaigning for a country that is brought together by investment", adding that people were "very, very angry about the way they've been treated in their different communities around the country". "We will do everything we can to prevent a no deal exit".

"I think that is something that we would regret for many, many generations". The vote was postponed at short notice in December after the Prime Minister faced a humiliating defeat by politicians.

Asked whether she agreed with Mr Hunt that the United Kingdom can thrive after a no-deal Brexit, Ms Rudd told Today: "This is a strong and great country, we will find a way to succeed, but I do not think that no deal would be good for this country and I'm committed to making sure we find an alternative". "I just can't see how it happens with that configuration of Parliament".
