UK's Labour will try to topple May if Brexit deal rejected

'It opposes the deal, rejects a no-deal Brexit. and would enable the House (of Commons) to express its view about what should happen next if the PM's deal is defeated, ' Hilary Benn, chairman of parliament's Brexit committee, wrote on Twitter.

The SNP, the Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru and the Green Party have all said they should be included.

But in a tweet on Saturday, Mr Corbyn said: "Theresa May said she wanted a head-to-head debate with me on her botched Brexit deal and I am ready to do that". Meanwhile three former Labour foreign secretaries have warned of the damage to British influence around the world if the United Kingdom leaves the EU.

"This is a really important moment for our country".

"But that's the sequence I think that will inevitably go through over this period".

Labour is also behind plans for a head-to-head before the December 11 vote, saying Mr Corbyn would "relish" going up against the Prime Minister over the Withdrawal Agreement.

Mrs Stuart, the chairwoman of the Change Britain group, said: "Both Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn want to keep the European Union in charge of our trade policy and sign the United Kingdom up to a swathe of Brussels regulations".

"Instead, what I see from Labour is an attempt to frustrate what the Government is doing to deliver Brexit for the British people".

The Prime Minister laughed when she was asked whether she thought she could win a ratings battle with I'm A Celebrity...

"Because I have got a plan".

May denies being too 'feart' to debate Sturgeon over Brexit

The debate is scheduled for the Sunday before the crunch Commons vote and the BBC intends to air the programme at 8pm after Strictly Come Dancing one of its most popular programmes.

They include former environment secretary Owen Paterson, who tweeted on November 26, "I will vote against it"; former Northern Ireland secretary Theresa Villiers, who put out a statement on November 19 saying, "I can not support it and I will vote against it"; and former global development secretary Priti Patel, who released a statement on November 16 saying, "I can not support the Withdrawal Agreement and will be voting against it". It is a big decision MPs will be taking.

Jimena Blanco, Americas chief and Argentina expert at risk analysts and strategic forecaster Verisk Maplecroft, said President Mauricio Macri had moved away from the Falklands saber-rattling of his nationalist predecessor Cristina Kirchner.

"I will watch the debate", said Mr Davies without hesitation when asked which he would watch and said it will be up to viewers across the country what they sit down to watch.

"I'm very happy to tell President Trump and others that we will have an independent trade policy, because we will have an independent trade policy, we will be able to do trade deals", she said.

"It's about people's jobs and about their livelihoods and I think they would expect us to do this seriously".

Channel 4 is plotting a rival Brexit TV debate featuring Tony Blair and Boris Johnson as negotiations over the showdown between Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn descend into acrimony.

Ms Sturgeon has already suggested it would be it would be an "absolute travesty of democracy" if the debate takes place without including someone to make the case for remaining in the European Union.

Mrs May accepted the BBC's offer to take part in the debate earlier this week.

"If you're confident in your position there should be nothing in that that worries you".
