UK PM May: Failure to Back Her Brexit Plan Would Be ‘Catastrophic’

Empics Entertainment

The desperate plea comes as Mrs May faces the worst defeat a sitting government has ever suffered in the Commons. Many lawmakers who back leaving the European Union say it leaves the United Kingdom tethered to the bloc's rules and unable to forge an independent trade policy, while pro-Europeans argue it is inferior to the frictionless economic relationship Britain now enjoys as an European Union member.

Theresa May faces nearly certain defeat when MPs vote on the deal on Tuesday. "And Brexit paralysis ultimately could lead to no Brexit".

He believes that if the PMs deal on Brexit is not backed by Parliament then the United Kingdom could remain in the EU.

"I'm in a leave constituency, but I would do what's right". We have seen from this week that Parliament has the ability to assert itself and to shape outcomes.

"What is more likely if this deal is rejected is that we have the risk of Brexit paralysis and when that happens no one knows what might happen and the big risk, and what people worry about, is that we don't actually deliver what people voted for", Jeremy Hunt told Sky News. "Instead of embarking on another fruitless effort of renegotiation, it is time to hand this crucial decision back to the people".

Lawmakers are set to vote on May's Brexit deal on Tuesday, after she shelved plans for a vote in December when it became clear that not enough lawmakers from her own party or others would back the deal she agreed with Brussels.

Mr Hunt told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: 'I'm saying this would be (an) incredibly damaging breach of trust and it would also be very bad for Britain's reputation overseas, having decided toleave the European Union, if we in the end for whatever reasons found we weren't able to do it'.

The Prime Minister said failing to deliver what the public voted for in the referendum would be "unforgivable" and undermine democracy.

But former Brexit minister Dominic Raab said Britain should be prepared to leave with no arrangement in place.

Pressed for a third time by interviewer Justin Webb on whether she would quit if Mrs May went for the no-deal option, Ms Rudd cut him short by saying: "Thank you very much, Justin".
