May’s Crafty Move Lifts Brexit Hopes

We’ve had our doubts about UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s sincerity in wanting to deliver on the voters’ decision to leave the EU.

But her latest move alleviates some of that doubt.

Not that Brexit is assured. But May has now at least offered MPs the chance to vote in a matter of weeks on whether to postpone Brexit or take a possible disorderly no-deal exit from the European Union, if her attempts to secure a divorce deal unravels.

The fact that a no-deal could be entirely withdrawn is arguably one of the biggest turning points in the UK’s excessively complicated Brexit saga since the 2016 referendum vote to ditch the EU.

Following a vote against her divorce deal in January by British parliament, May has again and again threatened the potential of a ‘disorderly no-deal Brexit to get concessions out of the EU’, as reported by RAW.

May makes it clear, Brexit exit goal 29 March

May runs the risk of thrusting the fifth-largest economy in the world — into crisis.

This has led many concerned MPs to threaten to take control of Brexit from the government over a string of votes on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, in an address to parliament, May said if she failed to secure a deal by 12 March, then MPs would face existing the EU without a deal in a vote on 13 March.

And if that verdict is rejected, parliament will have a vote on 14 March for a motion requesting a ‘short, limited extension’ Brexit delay.

The United Kingdom will only leave without a deal on March 29 if there is explicit consent in the House for that outcome,’ May said.

An extension cannot take no deal off the table.’

I believe that if we have to, we will ultimately make a success of a no deal,’ she added.

Let me be clear — I do not want to see Article 50 extended. Our absolute focus should be on working to get a deal and leaving on the 29th of March.’

An extension no further than the end of June, would have to be a one-time thing, according to May.

UK must honour Brexit decision

May urged her government to uphold its decision to leave the EU, saying the standing of the British democracy was at stake, as reported by RAW.

Postponing the deal escalates the risk of reversing Brexit. Particularly as the opposition Labour Party is leaning closer to backing a different referendum — a lot is riding on the degree of the delay.

According to RAW, ‘Any delay would be anathema to pro-Brexit members of May’s Conservative Party’.

Both of Britain’s main parties are facing mounting pressure to make a turn-around on Brexit, with both officially dedicated to carrying out the result of the referendum.

On Tuesday, opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn claimed that even if May’s Brexit deal was approved by parliament, then it should be put to a ‘confirmatory’ public vote.

The prime minister’s botched deal provides no certainty or guarantees for the future and was comprehensively rejected by this House,’ Corbyn told parliament

May’s Brexit deal is becoming more hopeful, as the shift aimed on another referendum sprouts big problems for Labour and the many of its traditional voters who support Britain leaving the EU.
