Queen Elizabeth to be evacuated if Brexit turns ugly

Government Ministers Meet For Their Weekly Cabinet Meeting Business secretary Greg Clark says no-deal Brexit could have catastrophic consequences for business

Two British newspapers have reported on Sunday that the plan, originally designed during the Cold War-era in case of a nuclear attack by the Soviet Union, has now been "repurposed".

Hardline eurosceptics in the European Research Group and Remain-supporting former ministers will form the Alternative Arrangements Working Group (AAWG), which Downing Street said would meet "regularly" with Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay and senior officials.

Nissan has cancelled plans to make its X-Trail SUV in the United Kingdom - a sharp blow to Brexit supporters, who had fought to have the model built in northern England.

Mr Baker, a former Brexit minister who quit previous year in protest at the Chequers agreement, and Ms Morgan were involved talks last week between MPs from the Remain and Brexiteer wings of the Conservative Party.

The ERG pivoted to support a government-backed amendment by Sir Graham Brady, which urged ministers to replace the Northern Irish backstop, after the Malthouse compromise was made public.

Under the backstop, the United Kingdom would remain in a customs union with the EU in the absence of a trade deal, and Northern Ireland would stay aligned to some EU rules.

Speaking Monday during a trip to Japan, Merkel said the already-agreed Brexit withdrawal agreement can't be renegotiated.

"The last thing this country needs is a general election, I think the people would never forgive us for it, I think what they want is this parliament to deliver Brexit in an orderly way", interior minister Sajid Javid told BBC TV.

"If he has been shown this, I think we'd all love to see it".

The United Kingdom is scheduled to leave the European Union officially on March 29, and some officials are anxious about how it will turn out.

'I just hope engagement is as honest as the PM's words at the despatch box led us to expect'.

Mrs May told the Commons the group had put forward "a serious proposal that we are engaging with sincerely and positively".

UK MPs last week backed a call for May to return to Brussels to secure a new Brexit deal that puts "alternative arrangements" in place of the controversial backstop - a kind of insurance policy created to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.

The first meeting takes place on Monday of a committee with the task of developing technological alternatives to the backstop, which is created to prevent the imposition of a "hard border" on the island of Ireland.

Ms Weyand tweeted: "That would not be "goodwill" but a dereliction of duty by public authorities in the European Union that have a duty to ensure public health and safety of consumers, protect against unfair competition and enforce public policies and global agreements".
