Few signs of breakthrough as May set to unveil Brexit Plan B

LONDON — Prime Minister Theresa May is set to unveil her new plan to break Britain’s Brexit deadlock — and it’s expected to look a lot like the old plan decisively rejected by Parliament last week.

May plans to brief the House of Commons Monday on how she intends to proceed. There are few signs she will make radical changes to her deal, though she may seek alternations to its most contentious section, an insurance policy to guarantee an open Irish border after Brexit.

The EU insists it will not renegotiate the withdrawal agreement.

May also faces a battle from lawmakers who are trying to use amendments to rule out the possibility of Britain leaving the EU without a deal.

Lawmakers are due to vote on May’s “Plan B” on Jan. 29.
