The EU faces a turbulent week for the days after the Brexit vote next Tuesday in the lower house. Because at the vote in Parliament, a rejection of the EU-exit contract, as is likely, it is being considered behind the Scenes, already how the Deal between London and the EU then still save.
In the case of a rejection by the house of Commons threatens to unregulated withdrawal of Britain from the European Union, which would run on the re-introduction of customs controls between the two sides. Minister of justice Katarina Barley, the inaugural as SPD top candidate for the European elections, spoke out against a renegotiation of the EU-exit contract via the the house of Commons on Tuesday to vote. "The negotiated agreement is a good result," said Barley to the daily mirror. "Renegotiations are not content possible, and that is the way it should be."
Similarly, had also commented foreign Minister Heiko Maas (SPD) on Tuesday during a visit to Dublin. "We urge our British friends to act responsibly and to stand behind the agreement, the negotiation of which has cost us so much time and effort," he had explained.
it All depends on the Irish question
the crux of The matter of the withdrawal agreement is the "Backstop". With this catch-all solution to prevent that in the former Northern Irish civil war, the region again, border controls will be introduced. The "Backstop" provides that Northern Ireland remains in the EU single market to the UK and the EU in the long term, agreed on a free trade agreement. However, it would be with a non-Brexit apply in March, the "Backstop"-a provision – and it would come back to customs controls between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.

"This is for the British house of Commons is unacceptable, even for the well-meaning there," Gabriel wrote. The former foreign Minister had also requested that the CDU/CSU and FDP would jointly with the French President, Emmanuel Macron, will approach the bourgeois-liberal government in Dublin, to find a way out.
Meanwhile, said the former British Brexit-Minister David Davis the "mirror", an unregulated Brexit "is, of course, long been the best solution". In order to improve the own position in the negotiations, should keep the UK the Option of a "No Deal"Brexit but to be Frank, he demanded more. Davis was kicked in last July from his Ministerial post because he refused to accept a "soft Brexit" in the sense of head of government, Theresa May.

In the case of a defeat in the house of Commons May to the 21. January time, in order to inform Parliament as to how to proceed. How to do it after a possible rejection of the deal on Tuesday, is completely open.
