Job losses likely in 'brutal' no deal Brexit, Theresa May told

DUP leader Arlene Foster

And International Monetary Fund (IMF) boss Christine Lagarde said no arrangement Mrs May reached with Brussels would be as good for the economy as membership - and a no-deal Brexit would be "brutal".

The PM is promising another "meaningful vote" in the coming weeks but Labour will seek to take the decision out of her hands.

'And for the country to do that, as Theresa May wants to do - to leave without knowing what Brexit you get - this would be, in my view, an incredibly foolish thing for the country to do.

"We can't allow that to happen", Starmer said.

The latest intervention from Mr Blair comes as Theresa May struggles to get concessions from the European Union that can win support from MPs for her deal - with less than seven weeks to go until the United Kingdom is due to leave the bloc.

"We have got to put a hard stop into this running down the clock", Sir Keir told the Sunday Times. "There needs to be a day when Parliament says that's it, enough is enough".

Last week, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn set out the conditions under which he would instruct his party to support an exit deal in parliament.

Should the prime minster fail in her bid to secure concessions from the European Union before her speech, she plans to ask for more time and promise a vote on other Brexit options at the end of February, the Sunday Telegraph and other British media report.

"We have to keep it together, because in the end, any chance of effective opposition goes if an opposition party starts to lose members from their team".

Earlier today, Treasury Chief Secretary Liz Truss refused to rule out quitting if May shifted to a position of backing a customs union in order to get a deal through parliament.

Meanwhile Ms Lagarde, speaking at the World Government Summit in Dubai, issued her own warning, stating that whatever happened the UK's trading relationship with Europe would not be as good as before Brexit.

Asked if she could stay in office if the government backed a customs union she said: "I absolutely do not think that should be our policy".

He voted against the Prime Minister's deal when it came before the Commons, despite being involved in negotiating it, warning that the terms were worse than remaining in the EU. "It would be economically very, very risky for Britain, and for the peace process in Ireland it would potentially be devastating, ' he told Sky News" Sophy Ridge On Sunday.

He said the result of the vote had given Mrs May a "clear mandate" to renegotiate her deal.
