UK: set to Brexit with or without a deal

Britain will not seek further talks with the European Union if the Parliament rejects the divorce deal with the EU27, the government said on Tuesday, as ministers defeated attempts to give lawmakers more say on the terms of the final agreement.

The statement, which echoes Prime Minister Theresa May’s stance that “no deal for Britain is better than a bad deal for Britain” came as Parliament debated a law that would give  the power to PM to begin Brexit negotiations.

Last month, May promised to ask parliament to approve the final exit terms in 2019, but added  Britain would leave the EU with or without a deal.
