Amid speculation the European Union could publish fresh assurances on the controversial Irish backstop on Monday, the Guardian reported that Brussels is preparing to delay Brexit until July - a claim disputed by a Commission source.
As she enters one of the most tumultuous weeks of her turbulent premiership, the prime minister will seek to avert what is nearly certain to be a huge defeat on Tuesday in a House of Commons vote on the agreement she's negotiated with the EU.
May said some members of Parliament were playing political games with the Brexit debate. 'We all have a duty to implement the result of the referendum'.
Failing to do so "would be a catastrophic and unforgivable breach of trust in our democracy", she wrote in a commentary published by the Sunday Express.
Tory minister slammed over comments about rise of far-right Conservative and opposition MPs have slammed a top minister for fear-mongering after he said derailing or stopping the government's Brexit plan would see a rise in far-right extremism.
"The leaders are much more savvy than people think - they can see what is happening in the United Kingdom, and they were left unconvinced that it would be possible to get a trade deal done quickly because the British government remains opaque on what it wants". The premier appears no closer to getting the backing she needs than she was in December, when the vote was dramatically pulled before it could be rejected.
Some MPs say they still don't though.
Britain is unlikely to leave the European Union on March 29, the Economist Intelligence Unit has predicted.The forecasting group said it expects the PM will lose the critical "meaningful vote" on her Brexit deal on Tuesday, and the government will then be forced to request an extension to Article 50.The EIU believes Brussels will agree to an extension, meaning Britain will remain in the trade bloc beyond the planned exit date.More news: Trump Tweets Withdrawal From Syria Has Begun

The BBC estimates that May's deal is likely to be supported by about 240 MPs, far short of the number needed for passage.
If the government lose a no-confidence motion, there will be a period of 14 days in which parties can seek to find an alternative working majority in parliament.
Conservative MP Nick Boles, who favours a Norway-style relationship with the bloc instead of May's plan, told the paper he was exploring tactics in the Commons to rule out no-deal.
While Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay, pictured above, said there had been "some movement" from MPs to support the agreement which is widely expected to be defeated, he said he thought that if it fell the Commons would eventually support something "along the lines of this deal".
Mr Corbyn also hinted that Article 50 may have to be extended if his party came into power.
The Observer newspaper reported Sunday that its lawmakers have been told it could be tabled "within hours" of that on Tuesday, with the confidence vote to be held the following day.
If a confidence vote failed, he'd be under pressure to back a second Brexit referendum, risking a backlash from the many Labour supporters who voted to leave the EU.
However, his priority is to force a national election and he said he would propose a vote of confidence in the government "soon" if May loses on Tuesday. If that effort were successful, Labour would likely also request a delay in the Brexit process.
