May's Brexit deal to go before parliament again

It's the deal that won't go away.

Theresa May will put her Brexit bill to parliament in early June -- the one that's been rejected three times.

It's just the withdrawal agreement, minus the political declaration on Britain's future ties with the European Union.

That's what she put to parliament last time round -- so what's changed?

Well, the date that Britain has to leave -- unless it revokes the Brexit clause and cancels the whole thing -- has got that bit closer.

It's this Halloween, and the EU warns it won't keep extending.

The prime minister hopes she can deliver Brexit before lawmakers take their summer holiday.

AND - pressure on May to quit is growing by the day - she's promised to do that if and when her Brexit deal is passed.

Now many would-be successors in her Conservative party are clamoring for her to set the date.

But it's looking far from certain that parliament will play ball.

It's as divided over Brexit as the country at large.

Already, a Euroskeptic bloc in her own Conservative party is saying it'll vote against the bill, as is a small Northern Irish party she depends on for votes.

Meanwhile opposition Labour, which has been holding talks with the government to try to break the deadlock, will probably also vote against unless she makes significant changes to the deal.

It's nearly three years since Britons voted by a narrow margin to leave the EU and opinions are hardening in Westminster and across the country.

Brexiteers increasingly push for Britain to get out without any deal at all, while pressure grows on the opposition to endorse a second referendum on any Brexit deal.
