Prime Minister Boris Johnson will again try to put his Brexit deal to a vote in parliament on Monday (21 October) after he was forced by his opponents to send a letter seeking a delay from the European Union, jiktbu Alistair Smout u Guy Faulconbridge.

With just 10 days left until the United Kingdom is due to leave the EU on 31 October, the divorce is again in disarray as Britain’s political class argue over whether to leave with a deal, exit without a deal or hold another referendum.

Johnson was ambushed by opponents in parliament on Saturday who demanded a change to the sequencing of the ratification of the deal, exposing the prime minister to a law which demanded he request a delay until 31 January.

In a twist that illustrates the extent to which Brexit has strained the norms of British statecraft, Johnson sent the note to the EU unsigned - and added another signed letter arguing against what he cast as a deeply corrosive delay.

“A further extension would damage the interests of the UK and our EU partners, and the relationship between us,” Johnson said his own letter, signed “Boris Johnson”.

The British government insisted on Sunday the country will leave the EU on 31 October, and plans to put the deal to a vote in parliament later on Monday though it is unclear if the House of Commons speaker will allow such a vote.

The government has proposed a debate on the deal, according to the House of Commons order paper which says the speaker will make a statement on the proceedings shortly after parliament opens at 1330 GMT.

Speaker John Bercow is thought to be unlikely to allow it on the grounds that this would repeat Saturday’s debate, but he has not yet given his formal decision.

Sterling, which has rallied more than 6% since 10 October, slid from five-month highs on Monday. It hit as low as $1.2850 in Asian trading before settling around $1.2920 GBP = D3 in London, down 0.5% on the day.

Goldman Sachs raised the probability of the United Kingdom leaving with a ratified deal to 70% from 65%, cut its view of the chances of a “no-deal” Brexit to 5% from 10% and left its view on no Brexit at all unchanged at 25%.

The EU, which has grappled with the tortuous Brexit crisis since Britons voted 52%-48% to leave in a 2016 referendum, was clearly bewildered by the contradictory signals from London.

With Brexit up in the air, the bloc’s ambassadors decided on Sunday to play for time rather than rush to decide on Johnson’s request.

From the EU’s point of view, extension options range from just an additional month until the end of November to half a year or longer.

“We’re looking for more clarity towards the end of the week, hoping that by that time we will also see how things develop in London,” one senior EU diplomat said.

It was unlikely that the EU’s 27 remaining member states would refuse Britain’s request to delay once again its departure, given the impact on all parties of a no-deal Brexit.

In London, Johnson’s ministers said they were confident they had the numbers to push a deal through parliament where opponents were plotting to derail the deal he had assured the EU that he could ratify.

The opposition Labour Party was planning changes to the deal that would make it unacceptable to swathes of Johnson’s own party including a proposals for another referendum.

Johnson’s former allies, the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) have indicated they could back a proposal for a customs union with the EU - a step that, if passed, would doom Johnson’s deal, Il-Daily Telegraph rrappurtati.

“Foolish or mendacious members of parliament have continually moved the goalposts and taken away the compression of a deadline,” hardline Brexit supporter Steve Baker said.

If Johnson’s deal is wrecked just days before the United Kingdom’s planned departure, it would leave Johnson a choice: leave without a deal or accept a delay.

Il-Gran Brittanja tistenna ġimgħa "sinifikanti ħafna" għal taħditiet dwar il-Brexit hekk kif l-arloġġ jimxi 'l isfel

Il-Gran Brittanja u l-Unjoni Ewropea sejrin lejn ġimgħa "sinifikanti ħafna", qal il-Ministru għall-Affarijiet Barranin Ingliż Dominic Raab nhar il-Ħadd (29 ta 'Novembru), hekk kif taħditiet dwar ftehim kummerċjali jidħlu fl-aħħar jiem tagħhom b'differenzi serji li għad iridu jiġu solvuti, jikteb .

In-negozjatur tal-UE Michel Barnier qal lill-ġurnalisti f'Londra li "x-xogħlijiet ikomplu, anke nhar il-Ħadd" fi triqtu għal sessjoni ta 'negozjati, hekk kif iż-żewġ naħat ifittxu ftehim biex jipprevjenu tfixkil għal kważi $ 1 triljun (752 biljun lira) ta' kummerċ fl-aħħar ta ' Diċembru.

"Din hija ġimgħa sinifikanti ħafna, l-aħħar ġimgħa maġġuri reali, suġġetta għal kwalunkwe posponiment ulterjuri ... aħna ninsabu verament għal żewġ kwistjonijiet bażiċi," qal Raab lill-BBC.

Minkejja li neqsin diversi skadenzi imposti minnhom infushom, in-negozjati naqsu milli jnaqqsu d-differenzi dwar il-politika tal-kompetizzjoni u d-distribuzzjoni tad-drittijiet tas-sajd.

Iżda l-ftehim tranżitorju tal-ħruġ mill-UE tal-Gran Brittanja - li matulu jkomplu japplikaw ir-regoli tal-blokk - jiskadi fil-31 ta 'Diċembru, u l-Gran Brittanja tgħid li mhix se tfittex estensjoni. Ftehim ikollu jiġi rratifikat miż-żewġ naħat, u jħalli ftit ħin għal dewmien ġdid.

"L-aħħar linja hija ... fil-kors ordinarju tal-affarijiet li rridu nagħmlu ftehim matul il-ġimgħa d-dieħla jew forsi ftit ġranet oħra wara dan," qal Raab lil Times Radio f'intervista separata.

Preċedentement, huwa kien wera xi progress fid-dispożizzjonijiet ta '' kundizzjonijiet ekwi 'li jfittxu li jiżguraw kompetizzjoni ġusta bejn il-Gran Brittanja u l-UE, u qal li s-sajd jibqa' l-iktar kwistjoni diffiċli biex tissolva.

Minkejja li jammonta għal 0.1% tal-ekonomija Ingliża, id-drittijiet tas-sajd saru kwistjoni totemika għaż-żewġ naħat. Il-Gran Brittanja s’issa rrifjutat il-proposti tal-UE u tibqa ’sod li bħala nazzjon indipendenti għandu jkollha kontroll sħiħ tal-ilmijiet tagħha.

"L-UE għadhom kemm iridu jirrikonoxxu l-punt ta 'prinċipju hawnhekk," qal Raab Times Radio.

Brexit: 'Franchement, ma nistax ngħidlek jekk ikunx hemm ftehim' von der Leyen 

ippubblikat

Waqt li kienet qed tindirizza lill-Parlament Ewropew dalgħodu (25 ta 'Novembru) il-President tal-Kummissjoni Ewropea Ursula von der Leyen qalet li ma tistax tgħid jekk l-UE tkunx tista' tilħaq ftehim mar-Renju Unit dwar ir-relazzjoni futura tagħha qabel l-aħħar tas-sena. Hija qalet li n-naħa tal-UE kienet lesta li tkun kreattiva, iżda li ma tpoġġi l-integrità tas-Suq Uniku inkwistjoni. 

Filwaqt li kien hemm progress ġenwin dwar numru ta 'mistoqsijiet importanti, bħall-infurzar tal-liġi, il-kooperazzjoni ġudizzjarja, il-koordinazzjoni tas-sigurtà soċjali u t-trasport, von der Leyen qal li t-tliet suġġetti' kruċjali 'tal-kundizzjonijiet ekwi, governanza u sajd baqgħu jiġu solvuti.

L-UE qed tfittex mekkaniżmi robusti biex tiżgura li l-kompetizzjoni mar-Renju Unit tibqa 'ħielsa u ġusta maż-żmien. Din mhix xi ħaġa li l-UE tista 'tiskala, minħabba l-prossimità tagħha u l-iskala tar-rabtiet kummerċjali eżistenti u l-integrazzjoni fil-katini tal-provvista tal-UE. Ir-Renju Unit sal-lum kien ambigwu dwar kif se jiddevja min-normi Ewropej li ma kellux rwol żgħir fit-tfassil, iżda l-loġika tal-partitarji tal-Brexit hija li r-Renju Unit jista ’jsir aktar kompetittiv permezz tad-deregolazzjoni; punt ta 'vista li ovvjament iġiegħel lil xi msieħba ta' l-UE xi ftit ma jifilħux.

"Il-fiduċja hija tajba, iżda l-liġi hija aħjar"

Il-ħtieġa għal impenji u rimedji legali ċari saret iktar qawwija wara d-deċiżjoni tar-Renju Unit li jintroduċi Abbozz tas-Suq Intern li jinkludi dispożizzjonijiet li jippermettulu jiddevja minn partijiet tal-Protokoll Irlanda / Irlanda ta ’Fuq. Von der Leyen qal li governanza b'saħħitha kienet essenzjali fid- "dawl ta 'l-esperjenza riċenti".

Sajd

Dwar is-sajd, von der Leyen qal li ħadd ma kkontesta s-sovranità tar-Renju Unit tal-ilmijiet tiegħu stess, iżda ddeċieda li l-UE kellha bżonn "prevedibbiltà u garanziji għas-sajjieda u n-nisa tas-sajjieda li ilhom ibaħħru f'dawn l-ilmijiet għal għexieren ta 'snin, jekk mhux sekli".

Von der Leyen irringrazzja lill-parlament għall-appoġġ u l-fehim tagħhom fid-diffikultajiet li ġie ppreżentat lilhom ftehim tard bħal dan. Ftehim finali se jkun twil bosta mijiet ta 'paġni u jeħtieġ li jkun imnaddaf legalment u tradutturi; dan mhux probabbli li jkun lest sas-sessjoni plenarja li jmiss tal-Parlament Ewropew f'nofs Diċembru. Ġeneralment huwa rikonoxxut li jekk ftehim għandu jasal għal plenarja fit-28 ta 'Diċembru jkun hemm bżonn. Von der Leyen qal: "Aħna se nimxu dawk l-aħħar mili flimkien."
