'Brexit paralysis' could lead to United Kingdom remaining in European Union, warns Jeremy Hunt

In the event May's deal is rejected on Tuesday, her government will have just three days to bring a revised plan back to parliament.

"So my message to Parliament this weekend is simple: it is time to forget the games and do what is right for our country".

The deal has come under fire from across the political spectrum, with opponents of the European Union seeking a cleaner break and pro-European lawmakers pressing for a second vote on membership of the bloc.

The British parliament will act to stop a no deal Brexit from happening, Vince Cable, the leader of the pro-EU Liberal Democrats, said on Sunday.

Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay told the BBC's Andrew Marr show: "There are lots of different plans being put forward by members of parliament that don't respect the result or risk no deal".

Mrs May is expected to lose Commons the vote on her withdrawal deal on Tuesday, raising the prospect of a no-deal departure on March 29.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has suggested that Labour would table a motion of no confidence in the government if, as expected, the prime minister's deal fails to gain enough votes to pass but he has refused to be drawn on the timing of that.

A no-deal Brexit would be "catastrophic" for industry and trade, Corbyn told the BBC.

Mrs May is facing a heavy defeat on Tuesday as Conservative backbenchers prepare to unite with Labour to vote the deal down.

The allegations have cast a shadow on Sanders' potential 2020 run in a likely crowded field of Democratic contenders. Trump himself has been accused by several women of sexual misconduct, but has denied the allegations.

According to the Sunday Times, the plan could see the Government lose control of parliamentary business, threatening not only Brexit legislation but the Government's ability to govern.

"An election would take place what February-March time, clearly there is only a few weeks then between that and the leave date, there would have to be a time for those negotiations", he added.

One of her predecessors, Sir John Major, called for Article 50 to be revoked as he warned it would be "morally reprehensible" to crash out without a deal.

"The UK Government's Brexit deal will take Scotland out of the European Union against our will".

Danielle Haralambous, a United Kingdom analyst at the EIU, said: "Time is simply running out, and we're at a stage where Brexit can probably only happen in late March now in the unlikely event that parliament approves Mrs May's deal on 15 January, or if parliament supports leaving without a deal".

Mrs May was boosted on Thursday by two Tory backbenchers - her former policy adviser George Freeman, and Trudy Harrison - indicating they will back her deal, as well as by a call from Japanese PM Shinzo Abe for the United Kingdom to avoid no-deal.

"I would love a general election because that would allow us to give a very clear statement to the Tory government as to where we're standing", he said.

"I am committed to getting the best outcome for this country, which is supporting the prime minister's deal".
