British Prime Minister Theresa May will pledge this week to give parliament another chance to voice their opinions on Brexit by February 27 as she tries to buy more time to negotiate a new deal with the European Union.

Theresa May is expected to pledge in the Commons this week that MPs will get another say on Brexit if she can not recommend a revised plan this month.

He said the move was necessary to stop Mrs May "running down the clock".

"The government will commit that if the meaningful vote, in other words the deal coming back, has not happened by the 27th of February, then we would allow a further motion - votable in parliament - to take place, to give that sense of assurance as to the process moving forward."

Brexit minister Stephen Barclay will meet European Union negotiator Michel Barnier on Monday to discuss changes to the part of the exit deal relating to the "backstop", an insurance policy against the return of a hard border between European Union member Ireland and British-ruled Northern Ireland.

The Government is stepping up efforts to persuade the European Union to accept changes to the Irish border backstop in the Withdrawal Agreement.

He accused May of "pretending to make progress" over issues such as the Irish border so she could "run down the clock" to force MPs to choose between her deal and no deal.

"We really are in the emergency zone of Brexit now".

The former Labour leader told Sky News' Sophy Ridge On Sunday: "No one could responsibly propose (a no-deal Brexit)". "There needs to be a day when Parliament says that's it, enough is enough".

Sir Keir called the prime minister's approach "reckless" and "blinkered", blaming "tunnel vision" for the defeat of her Brexit deal by a record 230 votes in January.

Deputy leader of the opposition Labour Party Tom Watson tells the BBC "we're now at the point where we can have meaningful talks to get a deal between the main political party leaders, or the only way to break the impasse is a public vote, and that remains our policy". The new pledge would be for a repeat of this process by February 27.

"You've got to decide which of those Brexits you want before we leave - otherwise, we're going to leave without clarity".
