British Prime Minister Theresa May has pulled the plug on Brexit vote, bringing uncertainty to Britain’s plan to leave the European Union as early March in doubt.
Prime Minister Theresa May who said this on Monday, a day to Parliamentary vote on the Brexit plan, feared the Brexit deal she has negotiated might not be the best possible deal after all, and fears she might not make it out of the Parliament.
Theresa May had earlier spoken so highly of her Brexit plans and was optimistic it was going to be accepted by the Parliament, and her sudden change or postponement clearly gives those who have from the out set opposed the Brexit plan more voice of credibility, and public backing that might not be good for her and her Government.
She is currently trending right now on social media for all the wrong reasons, as the people of Britain are left wondering if they have been led right all along, and if Theresa May actually have the right Brexit plans that will not be to their disadvantage, and favour European Union more.
She had earlier said this on the Brexit vote, saying:
“I spoke to a number of EU leaders over the weekend and, in advance of the European Council, I will go to see my counterparts in other member states and the leadership of the Council and the Commission. I will discuss with them the clear concerns that this House has expressed,”
“We will therefore defer the vote scheduled for tomorrow and not proceed to divide the House at this time,” May added.
According to report, Theresa May’s move on the eve of the scheduled parliamentary vote opens up an array of possible outcomes ranging from a disorderly Brexit without a deal, a last-minute deal clinched just weeks before Britain’s March 29 exit, or another EU referendum.
According to a report by Reuters, announcing the delay, May was laughed at by some members of parliament when she said there was broad support for her deal reached with the EU last month, the result of 18 months of tortuous negotiations, and that she had listened carefully to different views over it.
With her position at home in open jeopardy, May said she would go back to the EU and seek reassurances over the so-called Irish backstop, aimed at ensuring there will be no return to a hard border on the island of Ireland as a result of Brexit.
If we went ahead and held the vote tomorrow the deal would be rejected by a significant margin,” May told parliament, adding that she was confident it was the right deal.
Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn called her agreement a “botched deal” before adding that “our country deserves better than this.”
“The government has lost control of events and is in complete disarray,” Corbyn said. “It’s been evident for weeks that the prime minister’s deal did not have the confidence of this House yet she plowed on regardless, reiterating ‘this is the only deal available.'” He said
