But is there any chance that May's deal will make it through parliament and if it fails, how could this ongoing political deadlock finally come to an end?
Sputnik spoke with political campaigner Michael Swadling for more…
Sputnik: Does Theresa May have any chance of getting her deal through Parliament on the 14th January?
Michael Swadling: I guess her only chance is if Labour decides that they want to dishonour democracy and effectively keep us in the EU.
Sputnik: What could be a solution to the political chaos if the Prime Minister's deal is not approved?
Michael Swadling: The EU withdrawal act is in place; we'll leave and revert to WTO terms and that works, that's fine. I often use the example of an iPhone to people; that's a piece of technology which is manufactured in China, uses American technology and these are two countries we deal with on WTO terms, this isn't a fantasy, stuck in a port somewhere, there isn't a massive tariff, this is the world that really exists today.
When we exit the EU on WTO terms; that will be fine for whatever trading we do with the EU, just as well as it does for our trade in China.
Sputnik: Do you think that the EU needs the UK more than the UK needs the EU?
Michael Swadling: The EU makes a profit on its trade with the UK; the UK makes a loss on its trade with the EU. They have a financial incentive to ensure that good trading relations continue far more than we do.
