LONDON – Increasing anger over their leadership, Prime Minister Theresa May suggested defiantly on Monday that the Brexit negotiations are 95 percent complete and that the end product is good business for the UK becomes.
May has been heavily criticized by the Brexit hard-liners, who say they are giving up control to the European Union; of political rivals who say she has lost command of her party; and those who want to stay in the E.U. and says she denies the people of Britain control of their future.
"The form of the agreement on the vast majority of the assignment agreement is now clear," May told parliament, adding that her government had made progress in talks with negotiators across the English Channel
but these last 5 percent are none Small thing. How to make a hard border between Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, and Ireland, an E.U. Member, is "a real sticking point," Mai confirmed.
That's the way it has been for months.
"It's basically Groundhog Day every day," said Rob Ford, a professor of politics at the University of Manchester. "The Irish border? How do we solve it? Who knows? Everyone has a big turn. Wake up the next day, like Bill Murray, you hear the same song."
The problem becomes more urgent because Britain wants to leave the EU , in just five months. If the two parties do not sign a divorce treaty, Britain risks risking no exit – a recent-day scenario that could seriously affect the economy and daily life.
Two years after the British voted 52 percent to 48 percent in favor of the EU, Brexit remains a very divisive issue.
Thousands of people took to the streets on Saturday to protest Brexit and demand a "referendum". The organizers estimated that 700,000 people made up the country protest in Britain since the beginning of the Iraq war. Still, it was noteworthy that none of the speakers were leading members of the ruling conservative or opposition Labor party.

This is deeply unpopular with the hardliners who say they are Britain in the position of a "vassal state" and those desperate to end the uncertainty associated with Brexit.
The whole country is waiting for a plan that will work for Britain, not another cloak that will launch the can to keep its party in power, "said Labor Party Chairman Jeremy Corbyn Monday in Parliament.
May also has to deal with allegations of conspiracy against them.
At the weekend, British newspapers, unnamed legislators, were cited with wild imagery to describe a possible coup d'etat, with some saying that "a Assassination in the Air "and this May should" bring its own snare "to an upcoming meeting.
But the comments may have backfired.Their tone – if not the substance – was condemned by politicians of all parties. 19659017] Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish minister, said: "Few agree more with her than I do, but a language like this devalues politics. Get a grip, Tories. "
Many of those who distanced themselves from the remarks spoke of Jo Cox, the Labor MP of Parliament, who was assassinated by a right-wing extremist in 2016. There were also calls to lawmakers who made the alleged comments
Most analysts say it's unlikely that May will be ousted yet, and forty-eight conservative lawmakers have to hand in the necessary letters to trigger a vote of no confidence, but many predict that – at least in the current climate – May probably
And despite all the mud slaughter from the sidelines, there is no obvious successor, Boris Johnson, the former foreign minister, may be popular among the conservative grassroots, but many doubt his preferred Brexit accord would be the Would gain support from the Parliament.
"If you have the poisoned chalice of the V Get hold of Brexit could hold Theresa May as Prime Minister, because there is no successor that could unite the party, "said Jonathan Tonge, a professor of politics at the University of Liverpool.
"A government led by Boris Johnson would hit the buses within weeks," Tonge said. "Theresa May at least manages to juggle the plates."
