  • NewsPoliticsLondon Mayor Sadiq Khan explains why Brits now need referendum on Brexit deal Joe Mellor

In the interview, to be fully aired as part of the BBC " s "Panorama' programme on Monday night in the United Kingdom, the premier also issues an ultimatum to critics who have questioned her strategy on Brexit.

Ex-Brexit Secretary David Davis and Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson both quit May's Cabinet in July and joined other Conservative Brexit-backers to push for a clean break with the EU.

Under the European Union plan, goods will be tracked using shipping barcodes, removing the need for extra infrastructure on the border.

No new border plan will materialise before the Conservative Party conference on September 30-Oct 3, the diplomat said.

"But I can say at this point, without disclosing any numbers, is that clouds on the horizon have not become lighter but darker", she said.

"A future Prime Minister could always choose to alter the relationship between Britain and the European Union", he responded.

Luera was found still alive but in critical condition Thursday near a stretch of Texas Highway 255, but she died at a hospital. Police were alerted to a third body Saturday morning and then a fourth around noon on Saturday along I-35 outside Laredo.

Meanwhile Environment Secretary Michael Gove told the BBC that Mrs May's Brexit proposal was "the right one for now".

That would raise a host of questions about trade relations, the Northern Ireland border and the rights and privileges for the millions of citizens of European Union nations residing in the United Kingdom and vice versa ― United Kingdom citizens living in European Union countries.

Though he was reported to have said last week that his focus was on forcing Mrs May to ditch her plan, speculation about a leadership challenge isn't going away.

But as the BBC's Andrew Marr pointed out on his show this morning, Khan had changed his mind "quite dramatically" in now calling for a second referendum on the outcome of negotiations.

The next few weeks look crucial for Mrs May and the Brexit talks.

Although the prime minister insists the choice will be between her deal and no deal, pro-EU lawmakers want further negotiations, or even remaining in the bloc, to be options.

Erdogan says Idlib offensive poses 'serious security risks' for Turkey
Russian Federation and Iran rejected Turkey's call for a ceasefire at the summit in Tehran on Friday. Our fear as humanitarians is the worst may be ahead of us", said Laerke reading from the statement.

It's unlikely to be as straightforward as that.

"We have now reached a position where there are two outcomes as a effect of the government's negotiations", the Labour politician said.

That would be music to the ears of the main opposition Labour Party, which has faced its own turmoil over how to balance competing views of Brexit.

This is likely to put pressure on Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn to lend support to this demand for a second referendum on Brexit. Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said as much on Sunday.

The government is set to publish its detailed immigration proposals in the coming months, which is widely expected to be a general toughening of stance on controlling the numbers that come into the country in line with the Conservative party's target to reduce migration.

"Countries depend on reputation for their science because we live in a global marketplace for talent and if we are perceived as an open society, that's welcoming to the best of world, then that enhances science and that is good for everybody", said Prof Venki.
