Britain must leave European Union by May 23 or hold own European Union vote

European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker warned that the stakes were increasingly high, ahead of a vote by British lawmakers on the deal on Tuesday.

The aim of the deal is to overcome a major roadblock in the negotiations: the now infamous Irish backstop. After May called a snap election in 2017 and led her party to disastrous results, George Osborne, the former chancellor of the exchequer whom May had sacked, called her a "dead woman walking."

"Finally, the House of Commons is going to have to make a final judgment on what it wants in terms of Brexit", he said.

Just 19 days before the United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union on March 29, May is scrambling - so far unsuccessfully - to secure last-minute changes to an European Union exit treaty before parliament votes on Tuesday on whether to approve the deal.

But MPs on all sides in London were swift to condemn it for a variety of reasons, and it was rejected in January by 432 votes to 202.

"It doesn't mean that a public vote has gone, it doesn't mean we won't come to it, but it means Tuesday is about exposing the weakness of the Prime Minister", he said.

However, "Parliament could choose to hold another vote of no confidence in her government, which they did after the last meaningful vote", said Maddy Thimont Jack, a researcher at the Institute for Government in London.

If the deal is rejected, the most likely next step is that members of Parliament start maneuvering to force the government into a softer Brexit policy that could win cross-party support.

But few have any enthusiasm for Prime Minister Theresa May's proposals for leaving on March 29, hammered out over months of talks with the European Union. Then there will be a vote on postponing the March 29 exit day.

Ryanair said previous year it would have to restrict the rights if United Kingdom shareholders ceased to qualify as European Union nationals to ensure it remained majority EU-owned to comply with its licensing and flight rights. "It is this deal, or #Brexit may not happen at all".

Just 18 days before the United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union, there is still no ratified divorce deal and talks with the bloc stalled over the weekend as May felt she was unable to break the political deadlock in London.

The hope here is that parliament will vote in her favour and she can bring that back to Brussels in the coming two weeks to convince them to offer her concessions so that they can secure a Brexit deal.

May's spokesman said she was focused on making progress on a deal that parliament could approve and was committed to holding three Brexit votes this week.

Mr Lidington said the Attorney General would be publishing advice ahead of Tuesday's debate, but needed time to consider the new changes.

"The deal honours the referendum result and is good for both the United Kingdom and the EU".

But as MPs prepare to vote again on the deal on Tuesday, the prime minister has little to show for her efforts, prompting warnings of another humiliating defeat. She survived a bid to oust her through a no-confidence vote in December, so can't be forced from office for a year.

There has been speculation that the beleaguered prime minister may be forced to resign.
