Three reasons that Brexit vote may never happen

In general just over half of the electorate - 53 per cent - want their MP to vote against the deal and only 37 per cent want their MP to vote for it.

All over the place to be honest.

She added: "The point about me discussing other alternatives is to remind people that it is all very well saying, 'I don't like this about the agreement or I don't like that about the agreement'".

As things stand, the current make-up of the House of Commons means that Mrs May's deal looks set to be rejected by MPs, who are also expected to block a no-deal exit.

The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland has penned an open letter seeking to assure citizens that the draft Brexit deal is not a threat to rights or the Union.

What's Norway Got To Do With It?

There is also resistance within Europe about the possibility of an economy the size of the United Kingdom joining the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and European Economic Area (EEA) along with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.

Under the Norway-plus plan, the United Kingdom would remain in the single market and customs union, which would remove the need to use the Irish backstop provision.

Being in the EEA after Brexit would keep the United Kingdom in the single market, meaning goods, services and people could continue to move within the bloc in the same way as before, therefore limiting the potential disruption to the economy.

Sounds Pretty Good - Is It Popular?

Sir Graham Brady, who chairs the 1922 committee of backbench Conservative MPs, told reporters on Thursday that unless May could provide more clarity on how the United Kingdom could leave the "backstop" the vote should be postponed.

Mr Kinnock claims that at least 10 Cabinet ministers would back it if Mrs May's deal is rejected by MPs on December 11.

Leave supporters believe the Norway-plus deal is "Brexit in name only" because it keeps the United Kingdom tied to Brussels' rules.

So It's The Old Leave/Remain Split Once Again?

Elsewhere in the capital, the pro-EU Best for Britain and second referendum campaign People's Vote will hold a rally featuring politicians including Lord Heseltine and celebrities such as actors Charles Dance and Jason Isaacs.

Does Norway Have Any Say In This?

Heidi Nordby Lunde, an MP in Norway's governing Conservative party, told the Guardian: 'Really, the Norwegian option is not an option.

She claimed her views reflected those of the governing party, despite Norwegian Prime Minister, Erna Solberg saying Norway would examine a United Kingdom application.

"Would you please consider voting for this deal so we can all get on with our lives".

'It might be in your interest to use our agreement, but it would not be in our interest'.

"I think she'll go back to the European Union, I think they will talk to her".

Brexiteers will continue to push for a looser free-trade arrangement but that could still leave issues around avoiding a hard border with Ireland.

For all the people in Northern Ireland, this means continuing the progress over the past two decades under the Belfast Agreement, supporting our business community to thrive, ensuring a good deal for our agricultural and fishing industries and providing a safe, secure and prosperous society for future generations.

"I think that the deal will be rejected because it's seen by everybody to leave us as rule-takers, to leave us as a subordinate and not actually answer the questions or meet the promises either in our manifesto or in the referendum".

(We know you cheated).
