Brexit backstop legal risk unchanged, says UK AG

May secures new assurrances from EU

Liberal Democrat MEP Catherine Bearder, who has backed a new vote on Brexit, simply replied: "to: Brexit".

The problem continues to revolve around the controversial Irish backstop - the safeguard against a hard border on the island of Ireland.

Trader sentiment reverses Market sentiment reversed in late morning trading in Europe Tuesday as the UK Attorney General, Geoffrey Cox, said last-minute 'legally-binding assurances won by UK Prime Minister Theresa May to her Brexit deal with the European Union left the risks over the Irish backstop unchanged. However, considering the contention over the 'Irish backstop, ' there is a distinct possibility that Britain could still either exit the European Union without a deal, delay the exit, or cancel Brexit altogether. Today we have secured legal changes.

She would have looked first to the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland, whose 10 votes give her minority government a theoretical majority - and whose implacable opposition to the Northern Irish "backstop" in her deal has put down a marker for May's other Conservative foes and prompted the weeks of shuttle diplomacy with Brussels.

British Prime Minister Theresa May is welcomed by European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker in Strasbourg, France, on Monday. The papers include a "unilateral declaration" setting out how the United Kingdom believes it can escape the backstop.

HuffPost UK understands the DUP can not back May's deal in light of Cox's advice, and are likely to be followed by scores of Tory Brexiteers who have said they will be guided by the Northern Irish party.

He said: "I see it like all the boys see it in dressing room and everybody who sees it with us, it is a big night". Liverpool will discover their quarterfinal opponents when the draw is held in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday.

A senior cabinet source said the government had not ruled out holding indicative votes in the Commons to determine appetite for different Brexit options if there was a large defeat on Tuesday. One in three of May's Tories rebelled against her orders and voted down her deal in January.

Former Attorney General Dominic Grieve said he had received legal advice overnight that the concessions announced by May late Monday don't "change anything". "I am quite clear in my own mind it doesn't allow the U.K.to exit the backstop unilaterally", Grieve told BBC radio Tuesday.

The search for an exit deal that can successfully pass through parliament reaches its moment of truth on Tuesday.

If it is turned down by MPs tonight, despite the "legal changes", then another vote will take place tomorrow on whether to opt for a "no deal" Brexit.
