UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) – A last ditch attempt to break the Brexit deadlock…. For the fourth time, Theresa May is asking MPs to back her EU divorce deal…Putting a number of major concessions on the table in her 10-point plan for a ‘New Brexit Deal’ in a bid to appease both pro-Remain and Brexit camps.
Most notably, a vote on holding a second referendum….if MPs back the bill. SOT MAY I recognise the genuine and sincere strength of feeling across the house, on this important issue.
The government will therefore include in the withdrawal agreement bill, at introduction, a requirement to vote on whether to hold a second referendum.” A move that the British prime minister hopes will win over pro-EU Labour MPs…but has infuriated hardline Brexiteers in her own party. Her plan also suggests holding a vote on different options for post-Brexit trade with the EU, including a government proposal for a temporary customs union… The customs debate is linked to the most contentious Brexit issue…the Irish backstop. In a bid to reassure unionists, the new deal would place the government under a legal obligation to come up with an alternative by the end of 2020.
SOT Theresa May the government will ensure that great britain will stay aligned with northern ireland. we will prohibit the proposal that a future gov could split the n ireland off from the UK customs territory.The bill also contains new new guarantees on workers’ rights and environmental protections…but Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has already made his opinion clear…calling May’s plan “a repackaged version of the same old deal”. Words that don’t give the prime minister very good odds….She will need to turn at least some opposition MPs, as well as members of her own party, to have any chance of getting the new deal passed in early June.
