brexit deal may not go ahead

11 December Could Spell the End for the British Government

British Prime Minister Theresa May’s tenure in office could come crashing to an end next week.

And she has Brexit to thank for it.

The prime minister’s office says a parliamentary vote on May’s Brexit deal will proceed on 11 December. But the success of that vote looks highly doubtful. And a defeat next week could bring down the government.

May’s Brexit agreement with the EU will see the two sides maintain close economic ties. Yet critics have blasted it as giving far too much power to the EU and leaving the UK as little more than a vassal state.

May says its her deal or no deal

May has warned that if parliament doesn’t accept her deal, then there will be no deal and the UK will ‘crash’ out of the European Union. But her opponents have not been swayed.

As RAW reports, parliament is already mid-way through a five-day debate on the Brexit deal before Tuesday’s vote. And as it stands, May looks set to lose that crucial vote.

If she doesn’t manage to get her deal passed, it could see the UK leave without any agreement. But it could also see a second referendum. Something vested interests wishing to keep the UK in the EU have been plotting since they lost the first referendum.

The Australian Tribune has said since the beginning, that powerful forces on both sides of the Channel, and indeed all over the globe, will never allow Brexit to proceed. Much as we’d like to be proven wrong, it’s looking like these Deep State players will once again get what they’re after.

The Times newspaper noted that several MPs believed the government may attempt to delay what would be a game-changing defeat.

But May’s office threw cold water on that idea.

The vote will take place on Tuesday as planned,’ RAW reported the prime minister’s spokeswoman saying. 

It is likely there will be ‘no brexit at all’

The EU is holding a similarly tough line. Yesterday, EU negotiator Michel Barnier said the deal he’d negotiated with May and her team was the best offer Britain will get.

On Thursday, May used an interview on BBC radio in a last-ditch effort to get lawmakers to back her deal.

There are three options: one is to leave the European Union with a deal … the other two are that we leave without a deal or that we have no Brexit at all,’ she said.

The Irish border remains one of the top sticking points. Few want to return to a hard border. But with North Ireland leaving the EU and Ireland remaining, finding the right solution on border controls has remained elusive.

And that, we believe, is precisely how the globalist players working to derail Brexit would like it.

Of the three choices May offered in her BBC interview, by far the most likely is ‘no Brexit at all’.

So much for the will of the people.
