Indian-Origin Nobel Winner Suggests Post-Brexit Immigration Plan

European Union and non-EU citizens, including those from India and Australia, could have the same immigration rights after Brexit, British Prime Minister Theresa May indicated on Monday.

The mayor of London added his voice to the growing calls for another referendum on Britain's membership in the European Union, heaping more pressure on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to come off the fence ahead of his party's annual conference next week.

Khan said the "sensible thing" would be for the prime minister to call a general election if she did not have support for any Brexit deal.

He also pointed out that a future prime minister could "alter" Britain's relationship with the bloc - a comment apparently aimed at persuading would-be rebels to stand down.

"But I can say at this point, without disclosing any numbers, is that clouds on the horizon have not become lighter but darker", she said.

"As a result of Chequers I have to qualify one or two of my views", Gove said.

Johnson quit in July over the Chequers plan.

The IMF said that all likely Brexit scenarios would "entail costs for the United Kingdom economy", but that a disorderly departure could lead to "a significantly worse outcome".

May blasted Johnson for using "completely inappropriate" language when he described her Brexit blueprint as putting Britain in a "suicide vest". A no-deal Brexit "would impose very large costs on the U.K economy", she said.

Asked in an interview for Panorama, asked why she thought Brexit would be good for Britain, she replied: "It gives the United Kingdom opportunities as an independent and sovereign state to build a better future for all our people".

"That's what I'm focused on and that's what I think we should all be focused on".

The gloomy assessment contrasts with that of May, who indicated last week that a no-deal hard Brexit would not be a disaster for Britain.

International Trade Secretary Liam Fox - another top Leaver in the cabinet - said Brussels had made "reassuring noises" in recent weeks on the Brexit talks.

"If this government can not do what it is supposed to and govern, then we need actually to change the government", he told Sky News.

Mr Johnson has backed proposals by the pro-Brexit European Research Group that physical checks can be done away from the border, without keeping the United Kingdom or Northern Ireland tied to EU customs rules.

Despite strong opposition in her Conservative party and criticism in Brussels, May has stuck by the so-called Chequers proposal to keep close trade ties with the European Union after Brexit on March 29 next year.

The fate of May's government and her Brexit plan is in doubt because it is unclear whether she could command the 320 votes she needs in the House of Commons, the lower house of the British parliament, to approve a deal.

Theresa May's government had failed to ensure that the country didn't face a "bad deal or a "no deal" Brexit".
