United Kingdom should postpone Brexit, key MPs say

European Union chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier right gestures as he meets with British Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union Davi

The deal is now waiting to be signed by Brexit Secretary David Davis and chief EU negotiator Michel Barnier and the European Commission is likely to publish the agreement later Monday. The two will speak at a news conference called for 12:45 pm (1145 GMT).

One third-way option being considered, according to senior European Union officials, is to agree to the transition in principle, but reiterate that it is contingent on an acceptable solution to the Irish border issue in the final withdrawal agreement.

On Friday, EU leaders are expected to approve the transition deal and pass it to the European Parliament for legal approval.

The EU insists that any divorce deal must ensure there is no "hard border" between EU member Ireland and Northern Ireland, saying it could compromise the 1998 peace accord that ended decades of sectarian violence in the British province.

Putin storms to landslide election win
The Central Election Commission said with 21% of all precincts counted, Mr Putin was leading the race with 71.9% of the vote. Also this week, Washington hit Russian Federation with sanctions for trying to influence the 2016 USA election.

The report, endorsed by a majority of the committee's members, also argued for the flexibility to extend the transition period, if necessary, to prepare for the economic upheaval of Britain's final departure.

A spokesperson for Mr Coveney said the EU27 have been consistent that there can be no backsliding on any part of December's agreement on avoiding a hard border on the island of Ireland. Under this, Northern Ireland would effectively submit to European Union economic rules and so become potentially isolated from the British mainland. The U.K. believes the solution lies in the future U.K. -EU trade deal or, if this can not be agreed, "technological solutions". The EU is prepared to allow the United Kingdom a say in the negotiations on setting the allowable catch for the EU fleet even after the formal departure date of 29 March 2019. As a result, Britain is reluctant to give even a conditional nod to a draft treaty on Ireland that May says she could never accept.

However, "the transitional period will only come after everything is agreed", said Barnier, EU's chief Brexit negotiator.

Under EU rules, countries seeking to exit the bloc have two years to work out details after formal notification.

But the discussions at many Mercer County schools this week were really not about guns or gun control . More than 3,000 walkouts were planned across the USA and around the world, organizers said.

"While some companies would have liked to see copper-bottomed legal guarantees around the transition, the political agreement reached in Brussels is sufficient for most businesses to plan ahead with a greater degree of confidence". It is not vital to conclude that before offering the transition, but Dublin and its European Union allies are anxious not to give up a vital element of leverage on London before the border issue is settled.
