LONDON – UK Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday called on his shared cabinet to revoke a divorce trade with the European Union in “national interest” as pro-Brexit legislators contested a draft agreement that they said would make the United Kingdom dependent on the block indefinitely
May’s Cabinet discussed whether to support the agreement at a marathon meeting after UK negotiators and the European Union broke a month-long log and agreed on divorce.
The ministers were filed for 10 Downing St at. 14.00 (1400 GMT, 9:00 AM EST) as noisy rival protests ̵

Three hours later, they were still inside, and Maize’s office said the meeting was not due late to early evening. The Prime Minister was due to make a statement outside when it ended.
In May, legislators in the House announced that the draft agreement “takes us much closer to delivering the British people voted for in the referendum” of 2016 that chose to leave the EU.
May say that Britain would “take back control of our borders, our laws and our money … while protecting our work, security and integrity in our United Kingdom.”
She said the Cabinet “will decide on the next step in the national interest.”
However, pro-Brexit legislators in corn conservative party – a group containing some members of the government – said the deal will leave Britain bound to the EU after its departure
Conservative Conservative Peter Bone warned in May that she would “lose support from many conservatives (parliamentarians) and millions of voters all over the country” if she on May 19659010 Mays supporters claim that the deal is the best offered and the options are a chaotic “no-deal” brexit that would cause big disturbances for people and businesses or a choice that could see Conservative government replaced by the Labor Party’s left center.
Former Foreign Minister William Haag warned “Happy Brexiteers” that if they shoot down the maize agreement it could lead to a change of government and a new referendum and “Brexit may never happen at all.”
Failure to secure the construction of Cabinet will dispel Mays leadership in doubt and the Brexit process in chaos, with expiration just over four months away on March 29.
If the government supports the deal, it still has to be approved by 28-nation EU leaders. Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said that EU leaders had penciled at a 25x Brexit Summit to discuss the deal. But he warned nothing was guaranteed and much could still go wrong.
May must win backing from Britain’s parliament – no easy task, as both pro-Brexit and EU legislators threaten to oppose it.
The biggest obstacle to a recall has long been how to ensure that there are no customs offices or other controls along the border between the United Kingdom Northern Ireland and EU member Ireland after Brexit. Britain and the EU agree that there should be no barriers that can interfere with businesses and residents on both sides of the border and undermine Northern Ireland’s hard-won peace process.
The proposed solution involves a common customs arrangement for the United Kingdom and the EU, in order to eliminate the need for border controls, with certain provisions specific to Northern Ireland.
The solution is intended to be temporary, but pro-Brexit politicians in Britain fear that it can become permanent, which prevents Britain’s ability to meet new business deals around the world.
Former Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, Pro-Brexit, said the agreement would make its favored alternative, a loose Canadian trade deal with the block, impossible. He tweeted: “The cabinet must live up to its responsibility and stop this deal.”
The Northern Ireland Democratic Union Party, which proclaims the maize minority government, said it would oppose any agreement that leaves Northern Ireland subject to different rules for the rest in Britain after Brexit.
“We could not support trade union unions that broke the United Kingdom,” said DUP leader Arlene Foster.
May also face concern from Scottish Conservative legislators, worried about what the deal means for Scotland’s important fishing industry.
The Scottish Scottish legislature – including Scottish secretary David Mundell – wrote in May that Brexit has to imply “full sovereignty over domestic waters” and Britain must leave the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy after Brexit.
May also meet growing opposition from pro-EU legislators, saying that her proposed Brexit agreement is worse than the status quo and the British public. I get a new vote on whether to leave or stay.
Sophie in Veld, a Dutch member of the European Parliament, deputy legislature of Brexit boss Guy Verhofstadt, said the real problem during the negotiations “is in Britain” because Britain does not know what relationship it wants with the EU .
“That’s the real problem, because if Britain had a single agreed line, behind the majority of the parties and the majority of parliamentarians, then the whole situation would not be so unclear,” she said.
