( November 14, 2017, London, Sri Lanka Guardian) Theresa May’s government is rumoured facing a Tory rebellion over its last minute amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill.

A time and a date when UK will leave the European Union has been set.

The moment of departure, scheduled as an amendment, is now stated as 11p.m. on
29 March 2019.

As well as suffering a second cabinet resignation in a week, with Sir Michael Fallon (voluntarily) and International Secretary Priti Patel (forced over unofficial meeting with Israel officials during holiday), there is a lot of unease in Cabinet.

Meanwhile Europe wide business leaders had wanted the Prime Minister “to break the impasse before December 2017” and this redline could well be to accommodate their wishes.

But, the Government by imposing a definite time and date for withdrawal from Europe, has had a backlash from Conservative Backbenchers. David Davis, the Brexit Secretary, however has confirmed in Parliament that MP’s will get a vote on the final Brexit deal.

But inside observers are of opinion that the move is not “apocalypse now”. May seems to know what she is doing.
