May's deal getting voted down 'virtually GUARANTEES' no deal - 'GREATEST opportunity'

Theresa May

Brexit deal: How will MPs vote on Theresa May's EU Withdrawal Agreement on December 11?

Here's everything you need to know about the legal advice the government tried to withhold.

Before the debate could even get going, Mrs May suffered a series of bruising Commons defeats which saw her authority take a pounding.

In a historic first, legislators on Tuesday found the government in contempt of Parliament for refusing to publish legal advice it received from the country's top law officer about the Brexit agreement.

26 Tory MPs abandoned May and voted for the Grieve amendment, a sure sign of May's weakened influence in her own party.

Campaigners say unilaterally revoking Brexit could give Britain the option to "stop the clock", giving the country an alternative to the options of May's deal or no-deal.

"Under her deal the European Union has the legal right to stop us extending the transition and make us enter the backstop - whatever the PM or parliament says", he said on Twitter.

"I believe that the deal we have negotiated is a good deal", she told MPs, adding: "I'm continuing to listen to colleagues on that and considering a way forward".

A spokesperson for the pro-EU Best For Britain campaign said the group would be urging the Lib Dems to withdraw the amendment and bide their time.

Tory resistance to the Brexit plan could be bolstered by the knowledge that voting down the deal will not necessarily result in the collapse of the Government given the DUP's stance.

Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer, of the opposition Labour Party, tweeted: "Having reviewed the Attorney General's legal advice, it's obvious why this needed to be placed in the public domain".

In a speech at the European Committee of the Regions, he said: "I must say once again, today, calmly and clearly - it is the only and the best possible agreement". "This is a bad failure of negotiation by this Government", he added.

Speaking at an event in London co-hosted by Financial News and Project Syndicate, Brown said: "The deal won't go through in its present form".

The backstop is unpopular both among Conservative Brexiteers who believe it could keep the Britain indefinitely tied to the European Union and Democratic Unionist Party MPs propping up May's government who say it is a threat to Nothern Ireland's status in the UK.

Labour has vowed to call a motion of no confidence in the government if the deal is rejected and, if backed by a majority of MPs, this could force a general election.

Speaking about previous guarantees over the whole of the United Kingdom leaving the customs union, he said: "Quite frankly a lot of people in Northern Ireland feel that the Government, the Prime Minister, the pledges that were made have not been honoured".

"Overwhelmingly, the message I've heard is that people want us to get on with it. I admire the Prime Minister, her stamina, her resilience, the work that she's doing - but on this I think she has misjudged the mood of the country and the mood of the House".

Asked if Mrs May would survive to the end of the month as PM, Mr Smith said: "Confident Theresa May will be the Prime Minister after the meaningful vote and will be the Prime Minister at and after Christmas".

"How could a serious member of Parliament vote for nothing more than a wish list?" he said.

Mr Javid continued: "They would have fewer options for pursuing criminals across borders, as we would lose our efforts through Europol and Eurojust, and it would take longer to track, arrest and bring to justice those who commit crimes internationally".

What will happen on day two?

Home secretary Sajid Javid opened the debate on Wednesday, with security one of the main topics.
