Brexit: Corbyn will do BBC debate with May if head-to-head

May also ruled out a Norway-style Brexit as a "plan B" if her deal fails to win votes in parliament on December 11.

Confirming that she intends to speak with the Crown Prince during the two-day summit, May said: "The message I give will be very clear".

"I think it is important members of parliament focus on the nature of this vote".

With scores of Tory MPs now publicly opposed to the deal, his departure highlighted the scale of the task the Prime Minister faces if she is to win the crunch vote in the Commons on December 11.

"A few days before the vote in the House of Commons, it is becoming more and more clear that this deal is the best possible - in fact, the only possible one", Tusk said, ruling out any renegotiation by the European Union if the British parliament votes down last Sunday's deal on December 11.

May warned that the country would not prosper if politicians did not unite around her plan, and said rebel Tory MPs would leave Britain divided if they went against her in the upcoming meaningful vote.

This category includes the likes of Esther McVey, who resigned from the Cabinet on November 15 saying "I can not vote for this deal", and Suella Braverman, who resigned from the Government on the same day saying she was "unable to sincerely support the deal".

But May said such an agreement would not deliver on the European Union referendum vote as it would not end freedom of movement.

"We recognise that there are businesses who want to bring people in from the rest of the world, particularly in highly skilled areas and our immigration system will reflect that".

It is believed ITV has been willing to move the final of I'm A Celebrity... "I think it's that interest in constituents that MPs need to have in their minds too when they come to vote".

Poroshenko said it was necessary because of intelligence about "a highly serious threat of a ground operation against Ukraine". The strait is the only route for ships traveling between the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, where Ukraine has several ports.

"The backstop and the proposed treaty keep the whole of the United Kingdom in the customs union, which allows the EU to set tax rates, with Northern Ireland in the single market too".

Jeremy Corbyn will concede to Theresa May and debate her Brexit deal on the BBC - as long as it is just the two of them.

"We don't see any alternative coming forward from the Labour Party".

"Instead, what I see from Labour is an attempt to frustrate what the Government is doing to deliver Brexit for the British people. I think it is important we bring the country together and actually look to our future outside the European Union".

Mr Gyimah said the Prime Minister had been right to call time on a negotiation which had been "stacked against us" for the start and offered a foretaste of what was to come under the terms of her agreement.

"It is expressly referenced in the deal that we have negotiated with the EU".

May has said she will only take part in a debate against Corbyn, not any hard Brexiter, such as Boris Johnson, or any campaigner for a second referendum, saying the country had moved on from the leave versus remain argument.

Dr Fox is expected to say: "The withdrawal agreement and the political declaration will not please everyone, and we have had some tough choices to make".

Dr Fox, who insisted that Mrs May was "changing the public mood", appeared to suggest that some of his Cabinet colleagues may still vote against the PM's Brexit deal.

The decision to back a People's Vote was taken at a meeting of council leaders in Edinburgh today.
