May accuses Labour of pushing Britain towards no-deal Brexit

"It's a People's Vote, with the option of keeping the best deal we now have as a member of the European Union".

"We are talking to business about their needs". People need to have some clarity about that...

In September, a government-commissioned report recommended Britain should not give preferential treatment to European Union workers in its post-Brexit immigration system but should prioritise the higher-skilled.

Campaigners from Another Europe is Possible and the Labor Campaign for Free Movement took part in a protest against Theresa May's Brexit deal.

In a speech in Bristol, the trade secretary said that MPs needed to look beyond their current divisions and get on with delivering Brexit so that the UK's "independent trading future" can begin.

Dr Fox, who insisted that Mrs May was "changing the public mood", appeared to suggest that some of his Cabinet colleagues may still vote against the PM's Brexit deal.

Asked about a no-deal scenario, Dr Fox told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "Well, I think, as Roberto Azevedo, director-general of the World Trade Organisation, said, it wouldn't be a disaster, but it wouldn't be a walk in the park either".

Britain's Parliament is due to vote on the accord December 11.

"A few days before the vote in the House of Commons, it is becoming more and more clear that this deal is the best possible - in fact, the only possible one", Tusk said.

Mr Gyimah, who has been tipped as a future leader for the party, said any deal struck with Brussels will be "EU first".

"The message I get from members of the public is that they want the Government to do that, they want us to deliver Brexit and we want to do it in a way that protects people's jobs".

The group will propose a single motion opposing May's EU Withdrawal Agreement in a debate at Holyrood, which has wide-reaching powers over education, health and a portion of taxes.

May answered: "It will be a decision for parliament".

"The bottom line is that we must not end up with a no deal by default".

But hinting at potential further resignations from Mrs May's top team over Brexit, he added: "Members of the Cabinet who don't vote for the deal won't be members of the Cabinet".

"Even before we get to new trade opportunities afforded by new trade agreements there are still considerable export opportunities for British businesses to exploit in existing markets", he said.

She added: "The view I have had from farmers, employers and sector organisations and others in my trips around the country is that they recognise the importance of this deal and they support this deal".

The deal has been criticised by both eurosceptics and europhiles among May's own Conservative Party.

Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, a staunch Brexiter who is one of the most vocal critics of the deal, said Friday that the government was trying to frighten people into accepting it with dire forecasts about the impact of leaving the European Union without an agreement.
