U.K.'s May Scrambles for Brexit Compromise as Tory Tensions Rise

The government insisted it would not allow MPs to tie its hands in Brexit negotiations, despite being forced to offer a last-ditch concession to Tory rebels to stave off a House of Commons defeat. At this point, the main way in which a no-deal Brexit might happen is if the process simply runs out of time and the United Kingdom is unable to get Article 50 extended.
During three and a half hours of tense debate on amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill, government whips held whispered conferences with a handful of Tories on the Commons benches.
GBP/USD has rallied to test the bear's commitments at the top of the descending channel at resistance on the back of the government winning the third vote as MPs vote on Lords amendments to the European Union withdrawal bill.
"The government have conceded that this is necessary and I expect to see a new amendment to cover this situation soon". "At the start of this process, we had no vote in Parliament on the final deal at all".
"Secondly, we can not change the fundamental constitutional structure which makes the Government responsible for worldwide relations and global treaties".
"We had a personal assurance that we would find a way of addressing the concerns which are encapsulated in these amendments", Mr Grieve said as voting continued on Tuesday.
A junior minister in the government of British Prime Minister Theresa May resigned on Tuesday ahead of a crucial vote that could decide the future of Brexit-and perhaps the Prime Minister herself.
"If, in the future, I am to look my children in the eye and honestly say that I did my best for them I can not, in all good conscience, support how our country's exit from the European Union looks set to be delivered".
Ms Allen said: "No Tory MP, not a single one, is trying to stop Brexit".
Government sources confirmed ministers will now discuss the possible incorporation of these elements of Mr Grieve's proposals into the legislation.
Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer commented: "This vote was about ensuring parliament was given a proper role in the Brexit negotiations and that we avoid a no deal situation, which is becoming more likely with the divisions at the heart of this government".
He confirmed that ministers will seek to overturn 14 amendments which he said would undermine the objective of the Bill and fail to respect the result of the 2016 referendum. "I am sure a sensible amendment will be forthcoming which we can all agree to".
The concession seems to be a victory for the Remain camp and last night Tory Brexiteers were concerned the climbdown could damage the prime minister's ability to walk away from the negotiations if the European Union offer was not good enough.
Dismissing the Government's compromise, she tweeted: "Merely issuing a statement in response would make it a meaningless final vote".
She said unless there was a "meaningful vote" Parliament would be left with "the grim choice between a poor deal and exit with no deal at all". Brexit-backers objected as it would have all but removed the no-deal nuclear option from negotiators' arsenal. It opposes the other 14 and will be seeking to overturn them, though in some cases it is offering a compromise solution.
Earlier, May appeared to have also stemmed a rebellion on Wednesday over her commitment to leaving the EU's customs union which will transform Britain's trading relationships for decades to come.
