The middle ground is our only route out of this Brexit abyss

Thursday 19:06 GMT

While for a remainer like myself no Brexit is desirable, a chasm separates an economically manageable soft Brexit and the economic shock of no-deal Brexit.

The middle ground underpinning such a compromise has been deliberately shredded, torched, carpet-bombed from both directions. A rational approach, therefore, would focus on a compromise seeking to unite the country as much as possible, minimise economic damage and allow the conversation to shift on to what Theresa May diagnosed – and proceeded to fuel – as the “burning injustices” disfiguring British society.

MPs to vote on second Brexit referendum for first time

Friday 13:34 GMT

MPs are set to vote on a second referendum amendment for the first time as well as on a cross-party proposal that would allow the Commons to take control of the Brexit process from the beleaguered Theresa May.

Bryant wants MPs to vote on whether they believe that Theresa May can put an unchanged Brexit deal before the Commons to a vote. Parliamentary precedent holds that the government cannot ask MPs to vote twice on the same issue during the same session of parliament, to prevent the executive bullying the Commons by putting the same measure to a vote repeatedly.

Classic car industry fears Trump and Brexit roadblock

Friday 16:20 GMT

For more than four decades Elliot Cuker has been selling classic cars from his garage in New York, but last year he hit a roadblock.

Last year, average classic car prices rose just 1%, according to a separate report by classic car index Hagerty Price Guide. While some slowdown is highly likely after such a strong decade of growth, most in the industry blame President Trump's threat to hit car and car parts imports to the US with tariffs of as much as 25%.

Brexit: what could happen next

Saturday 21:49 GMT

It was a momentous week in the Commons as Theresa May’s Brexit deal was heavily defeated for a second time on Tuesday by 149 votes.

Confusingly, MPs voted to rule out a no-deal Brexit on Wednesday by 321 votes to 278, but this was merely advisory and not a binding vote.

Brexit and the week that all but broke British politics

Monday 10:49 GMT

As he did so, a passerby said “balls to Brexit” and another roared “We love EU” as the two sides of the argument kept safe distances from each other – and the country tried to fathom what on earth the last extraordinary week in the Brexit saga had all been about.

It is Thursday afternoon and 20-year-old art student Sonya Woodruff has taken time off from her studies to make a point about Brexit outside parliament.

Brexit: Labour likely to back public vote on May's deal, says Corbyn

Monday 12:40 GMT

Jeremy Corbyn has said Labour is likely to back an amendment aimed at securing a second Brexit referendum this week – but stressed his party still hopes to secure its own, softer deal.

Backers of the formal People’s Vote campaign were furious with Wollaston and her allies in the breakaway Independent Group for forcing the issue – as they saw it, too soon.
