Brexit talks deadlocked ahead of key Parliament vote

May is coming to Strasbourg, where the European Parliament and the European Commission meet this week, for talk with the head of the latter, Jean-Claude Juncker.

The prime minister has since been trying to negotiate changes to the agreement, in particular regarding the highly unpopular backstop provision, which is created to ensure a frictionless Irish border and would, as many fear, tie the United Kingdom to the EU customs union. The newspaper also said cabinet ministers had spoken about whether to insist she goes as early as this week.

And Tory Brexiteer Peter Bone urged the government to delay the vote until MPs had had enough time to scrutinise any changes to the deal.

According to Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney, May plans to travel to Strasbourg, France on Monday evening to finalize negotiations before bringing the divorce settlement to parliament.

"There is a widely held view that the United Kingdom has not been negotiating in good faith over the last few days", he said, adding that at least one diplomat had mentioned planning for a "post-Theresa May government".

"It is inevitable this unchanged withdrawal agreement will be voted down again", two senior Brexit-supporting MPs, Steve Baker and Nigel Dodds, warned on Sunday. But lawmakers from all parties, backed by warnings from businesses, have mobilized to stop a no deal Brexit to save the United Kingdom from higher costs of trade on the morning after March 29.

But May's spokesman, James Slack, said "talks are ongoing" at a technical level, and there is "a shared determination by both sides to find a solution".

A lower likelihood of crashing out of the European Union with no Brexit deal could help to inject some bullish sentiment into equity markets by eliminating one of the three major concerns of global investors, alongside trade and slowing global growth, said Greg McKenna, strategist at McKenna Macro.

MPs then voted to ask May to seek changes to the most controversial element, the backstop arrangement meant to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic after Brexit.

This looks to be May's next move and it only makes sense for her to put off a meaningful vote from taking place tomorrow or otherwise face an immeasurable defeat.

Talks in Brussels have been deadlocked and over the weekend, it became clear that May was unable to convince European Union leaders to agree to changes she was seeking to the withdrawal agreement, particularly on the so-called "backstop", the protocol to ensure an open border is maintained in the island of Ireland.

Meanwhile, public health minister Steve Brine has warned that he will resign unless Tory MPs are given a free vote in a vote expected later in the week on whether Britain should leave the European Union without a deal. She survived a bid to oust her through a no-confidence vote in December.

"What happens is the British people who voted for this. will see a government walking away, a parliament walking away from a question that they themselves put to the people", said Davis.

The 10 MPs in Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which props up May's government in parliament, also voted it down.

Lawmakers will spend several hours on Tuesday debating the prime minister's deal.
