Jeremy Corbyn: 'I don't know how I'd vote in second referendum'

"I have worked very closely with her on Brexit and I think there is still the opportunity to get this right, support the Prime Minister - but she must also listen and change course on Brexit".

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said his party, which has 257 MPs, will not support May's deal when it comes to a vote in Parliament.

"We now have an intense week of negotiations ahead of us in the run-up to the special European Council on Sunday", May will say in a speech to the CBI business lobby group's annual conference on Monday, according to advance extracts.

On the same programme, Corbyn said he did not think a second referendum is "an option we're going to get given".

European Union leaders are ready to meet on November 25 to sign off on the divorce deal, or Withdrawal Agreement, but French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe summed up the uncertainty when he said events in London raised concerns about whether it would be ratified.

"I can not reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election", Raab said.

UK PM Theresa May rolled the dice with a dramatic reshuffle of her ministerial team as she battles to cling onto her job and stop her own party tearing up her Brexit deal. No guidelines have been issued except for an assurance to use the "best endeavour" to arrive at one.

Other mutinous lawmakers in her party have openly spoken of ousting her and said the Brexit deal would not pass parliament.

Asked if the 48 figure had been reached, May said: "As far as I know, no it has not".

She then suddenly raised stakes, saying that "the choice before us is clear - this deal or leave with no deal".

Leadsom told the BBC on Saturday that the deal needed improving and that the 'UK can not be trapped in a permanent customs arrangement.' Many are sceptical as to whether the European Union would make significant concessions if forced back to the negotiation table. If a confidence vote is called among her lawmakers, May would need a simple majority of the total votes in order to win.

But the backstop could hinder the UK's ability to implement trade deals with countries like the US.

The EU has set out a series of meetings leading up to 25 November when it plans to approve the Brexit agreement.

In a sign the Tory civil war over Brexit is not slowing down, Middle East Minister Alistair Burt warned rebels the "consensus" that pro-EU MPs should reluctantly respect the 2016 referendum result could break down if she is toppled.

He told a gathering of Scottish Conservatives in Falkirk that he would continue to press for reassurances the United Kingdom would leave the EU Common Fisheries Policy in December 2020.

"This is a time for pulling together, for making sure we remember who we are here to serve, who we are here to help: that's the whole of the country". It is said this could be reached next week, though there is doubt whether there would be enough support to unseat her.

Asked what she would do if the vote was lost, May said: "There's a process that parliament will go through".

Raab added that "there is one thing that is missing and that is political will and resolve".

She told the newspaper, "People say "If you could only just do something slightly different, have a Norway model or a Canada model, this backstop issue would go away".

He also said another referendum - as demanded by some of his MPs - was "an option for the future but not an option for today".
