The International Monetary Fund renewed its warning about the economic risks of a no-deal Brexit to the U.K. It held its 2019 growth forecast at 1.5 per cent, saying fiscal stimulus in the last budget would offset the dampening effect of Brexit, but warned "substantial uncertainty" surrounds the estimate. "We would expect sterling to rally across the board once it becomes clear that a deal will be found", says Katherin Goretzki, a foreign exchange strategist with UniCredit Bank.
The lender said a chaotic Brexit would also threaten the global outlook. He also conceded that any Brexit deal at this stage would "probably" require a backstop.
Well that was quick.
"Putting a time limit on an insurance mechanism, which is what the backstop is, effectively means that it's not a backstop at all", he said. Poland doesn't reflect the EU's views, he said.
May will set out her next steps to build a majority for a Brexit deal in the Commons today, amid signs she is still unwilling to give ground on her central demands.
European Union leaders have warned May she should not expect any fundamental changes to the withdrawal deal, the product of nearly two years' work.
"It would obviously be less favourable for Ireland than an indefinite backstop, but much more advantageous than no-deal Brexit", he told the Rzeczpospolita newspaper. "This is the moment for London to speak". "I'm sorry, but this just isn't good enough", said Tory MP Anna Soubry, referring to Ms.
Mr Corbyn accused her of being in "deep denial" about the scale of opposition to her "undeliverable" deal, which was rejected by 230 votes in a Commons vote last week.

United Airlines passengers delayed on board plane for 16 hours
Chris Liew, who was traveling to Hong Kong for a meeting on Monday, said the the passengers were stuck for at least 16 hours. The airline apologised to those affected in a statement and said it would do everything possible to assist them.
She said cancelling Article 50 was the only way of ensuring what Ms Cooper wants: "The only other guaranteed way to avoid a no-deal Brexit is to revoke Article 50, which would mean staying in the EU".
Lawmakers will vote on May's plan and possible amendments, on January 29, two months before Britain is due to leave the EU. MPs resoundingly rejected the deal 432-202.
May plans to brief the House of Commons Monday on how she intends to proceed. "The backstop is the problem and that is where the focus must lie". Both groups say they won't back the deal unless the border backstop is removed.
Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney tweeted that the Irish Government was committed to the entire withdrawal deal, "including the backstop".
"We now know what they don't want in London". "Shakespeare couldn't have done a better job in writing the tragedy we're seeing at the moment in Britain". The Prime Minister stated that there are 3 main areas that needs to change in order to gain Parliament's support: the government's "flexible, open and inclusive" approach to engaging Parliament regarding negotiations with the European Union, the implementation of "the strongest possible protections on workers' rights in the environment" and most importantly delivering the assurance of no hard border in Northern Ireland.
European Union leaders have signalled they could alter the agreement if May dropped some of her negotiating "red lines" but British media on Monday reported that she would instead attempt to negotiate some changes to the existing agreement.
While May stuck doggedly to her deal, she also acknowledged that control over Brexit wasn't entirely in her hands. Let's rule out the worst possible option.
Attempts to forge a consensus with the opposition Labour Party failed so May is expected to focus on winning over 118 rebels in her own party and the small Northern Irish party which props up her government with concessions from the EU.
