Former UK Minister Calls for Second Vote on Brexit to End Stalemate

"Parliament is now stalemated on a way forward on Brexit, if it's the prime minister's deal it will be voted down, if it's a proposal for no deal that will be voted down, all parliament can do is block a route forward".

Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesman Tom Brake said: "Today we have seen the truly calamitous state of the Tory party, as once again the Prime Minister is forced to concede ground to hold together her unholy alliance of MPs".

She said it would allow Britain to control migration, end the jurisdiction of European Union courts and forge its own trade policy - despite US President Donald Trump saying the prime minister's plan could "kill" a US-UK trade deal.

A key piece of Brexit legislation has scraped through the Commons, despite another minister resigning over it.

MPs will also go home as the new Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab travels to Brussels to meet European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier for the first time since taking the role from David Davis, who resigned last week.

Barnier has warned that it will be hard to reach a conclusion in the negotiations by the October target.

Republicans blast Trump meeting with Putin as 'shameful' and 'sign of weakness'
She accused Trump of not defending America, saying Trump's remarks represent "a sad diminishment of our great nation". Robert Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations panel, has floated a resolution similar to Flake's.

He tweeted: "I can't possibly go along with that and I don't see how anyone else could at this critical time with the clock ticking on #Brexit; it would be shameful even to consider it".

MPs will carry on debating Brexit on Tuesday when the Trade Bill comes to the Commons.

Clause 17 sees the United Kingdom seek to continue participation in the European medicines regulatory network.

It was yet another resignation by a Government minister in a little over a week over the Prime Minister's Chequers plan and the Brexit white paper. One pro-EU ex-minister called it the "worst of all worlds", while eurosceptics said the strategy kept Britain too close to the bloc. All of them had previously backed the medicine regulation amendment, except for Ms Hoey who did not vote.

The party's European Research Group says it will reject any last attempts at compromise by Number 10 as they hope to force May to change course over Brexit or risk a no-confidence vote before the summer break by demonstrating the depth of their support.

"The inevitable outcome of the parliamentary arithmetic is that she will need to change it to keep the party united", he told BBC television.

Amazon’s Prime Day dimmed by website woes
Prime is the "most critical driver" for Amazon's e-commerce business in the long run, argued Cowen analyst John Blackledge. Many complained about being unable to checkout or search for products, instead getting an error page with images of dogs.

But there is a majority for a customs union.

"Others saying perhaps we cannot have the bill at all".

"We can't rely on anything", said Warren East, CEO of United Kingdom engine maker Rolls Royce, who said his firm could start stockpiling parts soon if it looked like Britain was heading towards a disorderly exit from the EU.

The Aberdeen South MP also insisted he and Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, who campaigned against Brexit during the referendum, had "agreed to disagree" over Europe.

Labour shadow chancellor John McDonnell said such a vote, listed for Tuesday evening, shows the Government is in "chaos".

"I won't be going in some voting lobby with Jacob Rees-Mogg and those who want a second referendum in some unholy alliance", he told Sky News.
