My Brexit plan or crash out of European Union, says Theresa May

My Brexit plan or crash out of European Union, says Theresa May

The United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019, but London and Brussels have yet to strike a deal over the terms of the exit from the bloc, known as Brexit.

Speaking to BBC's Andrew Marr earlier today, he said: "Let me tell you the facts, which are that the police now are preparing for the possibility of civil unrest.

There is a lot of talk about various issues around Brexit and we are anxious that in all these talks and negotiations, somehow science should not take a back seat", said Prof.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May leaves 10 Downing Street in London on September 12, 2018.

However, the prediction is based on Britain sealing an European Union divorce deal and transition period by the end of the year.

"It would be a lot more wise to put her cabinet together, agree on what they want to agree on Brexit and how to get there, and then trigger this process", he added.

Anti- brexit protesters in Dover continue to demonstrate with the thought of chaos if there's a disorderly Brexit with Dover being the lifeline for the economy.

Mr Johnson has backed proposals by the pro-Brexit European Research Group that physical checks can be done away from the border, without keeping the United Kingdom or Northern Ireland tied to EU customs rules.

But even if she gets an accord in the coming weeks, it must be signed off on in parliament, where she can only muster a slender majority.

The timing and location of the proposed meeting were unclear, the sources familiar with the matter said. Some of their employees are paying the price, with 12 percent of firms cutting staff, the report says.

"This debate is not about my future: this debate is about the future of the people of the UK and the future of the United Kingdom".

Keir Starmer, Labour's Brexit spokesman, said any EU deal must meet Labour's key Brexit tests, which include delivering the "exact same benefits" as Britain now has inside the single market and customs union.

That would mean only a small number of May's Conservative MPs need to rebel in order to bring down her blueprint - and plenty of hardcore Brexiteers are infuriated by it.

The India-born scientist, who as president of the UK's Royal Society is the country's key advocate for science, warned that Britain is in danger of losing its position as a leading scientific hub in the event of a no-deal or bad-deal scenario in the ongoing negotiations on the country's future ties with the EU.

She says members of parliament will get to vote on whether to accept any final deal.

However, the PM has said the counter-proposal to her Chequers plan is "still a hard border" and hers is the only way that does not "carve up the United Kingdom".

May also insisted no other plan on the table would ensure "frictionless" trade in Ireland.

Under the European Union plan, goods will be tracked using shipping barcodes, removing the need for extra infrastructure on the border.

Meanwhile, former foreign secretary Boris Johnson fired his latest attack on her plan in his weekly newspaper column, claiming it would usher in "foreign rule" for the first time since the Norman conquest in the 11th century.
