  • British Prime Minister Theresa May right and European Council President Donald Tusk attend a round table meeting at an EU summit in Brussels Sunday Nov. 25

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Luxembourg ruled that the case was "inadmissible, because there are no expatriates who are personally affected [by the negotiations for the UK's withdrawal from the EU] for now".

"We can not go on any more with this hopeless can't-do spirit; this reflexive negativity and defeatism that so woefully underestimates the courage and creativity of the British people", he lamented.

The Prime Minister warned MPs not to vote against the deal.

Speaking on the BBC, the Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt acknowledged that May's deal "isn't perfect" and admitted that it would struggle to make its way through parliament and may even lead to the collapse of the government if it is voted down.

"I want that to be a moment of renewal and reconciliation for our whole country", she writes.

"The additional trade barriers, combined with reductions in both skilled and unskilled migration from the end of free movement, would leave the United Kingdom significantly smaller than it would otherwise have been over the medium to long term".

On Sunday, EU leaders approved May's withdrawal agreement with the bloc and urged the British public and politicians to back her Brexit deal.

"The European Council invites the Commission, the European Parliament and the Council to take the necessary steps to ensure that the agreement can enter into force on 30 March 2019, so as to provide for an orderly withdrawal", the European Council said in a news release. There should be "timely exchanges of intelligence and sensitive information between the relevant Union bodies and the United Kingdom authorities".

Asked if May was confident of getting a deal through parliament, her spokesman told reporters: "Yes".

A no-deal Brexit would "cause huge disruption at the borders, it would mean tariffs and checks at the borders, and all sorts of unforeseen circumstances, and so that's something that a lot of lawmakers are very keen to avoid", Javed said.

Part of Theresa May's deal also includes a commitment by London to pay the European Union a gargantuan £39 billion, slated by both sides as a 'divorce bill.' The figure has however been pointed to by arch-Brexiteers as deeply unfair.

"It is the best deal available, the only possible deal", she said.

The small Northern Irish party that props up Mrs May's Conservatives-led government has said it will vote against the draft Brexit deal.

Pro-Brexit Conservative lawmaker Iain Duncan Smith said Sunday that May should demand new conditions from the EU.

The hit would be the equivalent of losing the economic output of Wales or the contribution of London's financial services industry, the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) said.

Those called to open the questioning included the ERG's chairman Jacob Rees-Mogg, former chairman Steve Baker and deputy chairman Mark Francois, all of whom have published letters of no confidence in the Prime Minister in the last fortnight.

Tajani said a "large majority" of European parliamentarians supported the deal. Sturgeon wanted to stay in the European Union.
