UK PM to drag Brexit debate until end of February

UK Housing minister James Brokenshire told the BBC on Sunday that May would use a Thursday debate in the House of Commons to promise the chamber a chance to vote on her revised Brexit deal on February 27 only if a breakthrough is not achieved before that time. “That gives that sense of timetable, clarity, and purpose on what we’re doing with the EU - taking that work forward and our determination to get a deal - but equally knowing that role that parliament very firmly has,” Brokenshire said. May suffered a historic defeat on her Brexit deal in the Commons on January 15. The lawmakers then forced her to seek concessions from the EU on a controversial clause in the deal which sets out rules for future administration of the Irish border. In meetings earlier this week in Brussels, May failed to convince senior EU officials to reopen the co-called backstop as she was told to seek a compromise with the opposition Labour Party if she wants to secure an orderly Brexit at the end of March. However, a key Labour figure said on Sunday that the party will use this week debate in the Commons to compel May to present a fresh accord for lawmakers to consider before February 26, meaning that opposition will try to prevent May from waiting until the last minute to come back with a deal. “We shouldn’t be put in a position where the clock is run down and the prime minister says it’s either my deal or even worse. That isn’t right in terms of the respect for parliament,” said Keir Starmer, Labour’s Brexit policy chief, in an interview with the Sunday Times newspaper. Many expect that May would finally fail to go through the parliament with her withdrawal deal. She has repeatedly said that scenario would force her to implement a disorderly Brexit on March 29 despite warnings that it could have serious implications for the economy.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
