European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker today (30 March) warned US President Donald Trump that he would call for independence for OH and Texas, if the flamboyant millionaire kept backing Brexit.

The Bank of England and the British government will deliver their assessments of the economic impact of Brexit tomorrow as Prime Minister Theresa May tries to overcome deep opposition to the deal she struck with Brussels.

Many anti-Brexiteers argue the deal is inferior to remaining in the European Union because it will not guarantee frictionless trade, while the United Kingdom will no longer have a say in setting rules and regulations it will have to abide by.

"That wouldn't be a good thing".

Meanwhile, the prime minister also wrote an open letter to the British people imploring voters to put pressure on wavering members of parliament to back her.

"We will have an independent trade policy and we will be able to negotiate trade deals with countries around the rest of the world", May.

That means deals on everything from TVs to phones, computers, tablets and toys from the biggest retailers around. If you buy a new model of iPhone through Walmart for the normal price, you'll receive a $300 Walmart gift card.

"We have already been laying the groundwork for an ambitious agreement with the USA through our joint working groups, which have met five times so far", said a spokesperson for the office.

The signs of May's circuitous tactics emerged shortly after the European leaders supported the 585-page draft withdrawal agreement and 26-page political declaration. On 11 December, UK parliament will vote on whether to accept the deal.

With the beginning of the two-week campaign, May is applying circuitous tactics by going over the heads of members of parliament to appeal directly to the whole nation to back her Brexit deal, which won formal endorsement by the 27 leaders of the European Union (EU) member states.

Colum Eastwood, leader of Northern Ireland's moderate Irish nationalist Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP), on Monday urged lawmakers from Labour and other parties to back May's deal.

The Prime Minister's deal has received widespread opposition from MPs of all parties.

"This is the best deal that was available to the UK. Any other deal really only exists in people's imagination".

"No one knows what would happen if this deal doesn't pass".

In an interview with the Sun, he said would have done the Brexit negotiations "much differently" and claimed the PM had not listened to his advice.

"This is the only deal possible", he said, adding a warning: "Those who think by rejecting the deal, will have a better deal, will be disappointed in the few seconds after rejecting the deal".

There was no formal vote required by the remaining 27 members of the European Union meeting on Sunday, as the withdrawal agreement was approved by consensus.

Mrs May has mobilised the government to sell the pact with a nationwide tour planned as well as handing down on orders to every minister to sell her deal to those affected by their ministerial brief.

An early plan for selling a Brexit agreement, which was leaked before a deal was reached with Brussels, suggested Downing Street was hoping for the endorsement of world leaders such as Mr Abe.

So could a Democrat win? Espy is trying to become the first African-American to represent MS in the Senate since Reconstruction. His campaign has pushed the idea that electing Ms Hyde-Smith would stoke the trope of Mississippi as a racist southern state.

May needs to win a simple majority in parliament - 320 votes if all active lawmakers turn out and vote - but former whips, who have long studied parliamentary arithmetic, say the prime minister may end up needing only 305 votes if illnesses and abstentions are accounted for.
