DUP stresses extra cash for Northern Ireland not part of Brexit discussions

DUP stresses extra cash for Northern Ireland not part of Brexit discussions

She had been forced to offer MPs a vote on delaying Brexit after they rejected her withdrawal agreement by a large margin, for a second time, and then voted to reject a no-deal Brexit.

MPs have voted against holding a second Brexit referendum this evening by a substantial majority of 249 votes.

The march comes after another tumultuous week for Prime Minister Theresa May in which parliament overwhelmingly rejected her divorce deal for a second time and lawmakers voted to seek a delay in Britain's exit from the EU.

The Democratic Unionist Party has said there are "still issues to be discussed" with the government as Theresa May continues to try to win support for her Brexit deal. House of Commons Speaker John Bercow chose four amendments for MPs to vote, which also include whether to allow MPs to take control of parliamentary business next Wednesday. All 27 European Union member states must agree to a request for a Brexit extension, and it remains unclear when and on what terms Britain will leave. Everything she had done since she entered office was meant to deliver that. That left Britain facing a disruptive "no-deal" exit from the bloc on March 29, when a two-year countdown to the country's departure runs out.

Not only do some high-profile Conservatives, including former cabinet minister Esther McVey, now support the deal but the DUP is said to be in "ongoing, significant" discussions with Downing Street.

"If the proposal were to go back to square one and negotiate a new deal, that would mean a much longer extension - nearly certainly requiring the United Kingdom to participate in the European Parliament elections in May", she said in an article in the Sunday Telegraph.

The US also imposed sanctions on two Ukrainian separatists for their support of "illegitimate separatist government elections". The decision takes the number of people blacklisted by the bloc over the crisis in Ukraine to 170 persons and 44 entities .

They were carrying love hearts bearing messages like "we love workers' rights" and "we love to have a say", but some marchers responded by calling them "EU money grabbers".

In the event of a such delay, Seif told Reuters: "I am of the view that we should change the EU's guidelines".

But 17 Labour MPs defied party orders and voted to oppose another referendum - while 24 Labour MPs rebelled to vote in favor of one.

The EU guidance echoes the briefing provided to MPs at Westminster before Thursday's vote, which said "if the United Kingdom were to seek an extension beyond 1 July, and hence remain a member state beyond that point, it would need to participate in the EP elections".

The prime minister is accepting she will miss one of the biggest targets she has ever set herself.

Moreover, any extension is not automatic as she still needs the approval of all 27 remaining European Union member-states - themselves divided on the idea - for an extension. And more Tory MPs now opposing May's Brexit deal have told party whips they would back it if the prime minister announced she would quit this summer. The argument now is really about what that new deal would look like, and with the extension of Article 50, they have a little more breathing space to process it.
