Theresa May to bring Brexit deal vote back to parliament in January

British Prime Minister Theresa May says she will bring her Brexit deal back to parliament for a vote in mid-January, pledging to get assurances from the European Union to break the deadlock over Britain's departure from the bloc.
 
With a little more than 100 days until Britain is due to leave the bloc on March 29, Mrs May on Monday faced accusations from some lawmakers of trying to force a deeply divided parliament into backing her deal by running the clock down to exit day.
 
A mid-January vote could pile pressure on lawmakers by confronting them with the choice of her deal or leaving without one, a nightmare scenario for business.
 
The British leader is pressing on with her deal to leave the EU, rejecting calls for a second referendum or to test support for different Brexit options in parliament.
 
This despite hardening opposition.
