Brexit: May Un-Surrenders to Tory Remainers, Faces Parliamentary Rebellion

After the House of Lords changed the bill to give Parliament a more decisive say, MPs voted on Tuesday to reverse the move - but several pro-EU Tories say they held back from voting against the government because of promises they were made that their concerns would be listened to.

Prime Minister Theresa May today sought to defend herself against accusations that he had misled MPs in her party on an amendment to the government's Brexit bill as she tries to head off a rebellion this week.

Despite the "personal assurance" about a new compromise amendment, possibly as early as next week, the government has now indicated that any changes may not go as far as the rebels wanted, says Jessica Elgot in The Guardian.

Westminster has argued for continued access, but Brussels maintains third countries can not use the secret signal.Despite threats of British threats to launch its own domestic rival, the European Union has stood firm on its position of no third country access to Galileo's PRS but has said other public uses will continue to be no-limits access for the UK.A British absence from Galileo will, however, significantly hamstring the project, according to a UK Government source familiar with the Brexit negotiations.

"The government's current proposal would neuter parliament if the government failed to reach a Brexit deal". It will then be returned to the Commons for a fresh showdown with MPs.

May avoided nearly certain defeat in the Commons on Tuesday by assuring rebels that their concerns about having a "meaningful vote" on the final Brexit deal would be addressed.

Pro-EU Tories were quick to voice their anger.

"If the government can't get the most important treaty through Parliament we'll be looking for a new government", said Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Mr Tugendhat.

Mrs May won every vote but the "meaningful vote" issue has put her in a seemingly precarious position.

A United Kingdom government's compromise to avoid a Commons defeat on Brexit has been rejected as "unacceptable" by leading rebel Dominic Grieve.

The rebels are seeking both closer ties with the European Union on issues like trade and customs, and to ensure that the government does not follow through on its threat to leave the bloc without a deal if it does not like the terms on offer from Brussels.

"It all changed without Dominic Grieve or anyone else being consulted".

Labour's Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer said: "The Government's amendment is simply not good enough".

"We could collapse the government, and I can assure you I wake up at 2 a.m.in a cold sweat thinking about the problems we have put on our shoulders", Dominic Grieve, a leading pro-EU lawmaker negotiating with the government, told the BBC.

The British government faces another nerve-rattling test this week as its flagship Brexit legislation is picked over once again by a restive parliament.

Wring in The Daily Telegraph, Mr Lee also argued that other MPs should support Mr Grieve over Parliament having a meaningful vote. "Parliament can not - and should not - accept it".

MPs from the governing Tory Party, its DUP partners, and the Labour Party opposition all stood on manifestos which promised to deliver Brexit in the subsequent 2017 snap election.
