Bri­tish PM weighs Brexit de­lay

Toronto Sun - - NEWS -

Theresa May is said to be weigh­ing a plan to post­pone the crunch vote on her Brexit deal in an at­tempt to avoid a land­slide de­feat that would risk a ma­jor U.K. po­lit­i­cal cri­sis.

The prime minister was urged by al­lies in her Con­ser­va­tive party to de­lay the par­lia­men­tary vote on the U.K.’s di­vorce agree­ment with the Euro­pean Union amid pre­dic­tions she would lose it badly.

Asked if he thought the Dec. 11 vote should be de­layed, cab­i­net minister Matt Han­cock said:

“No. Down­ing Street have been very clear that they’re not go­ing to de­lay the vote,” he told BBC Ra­dio 4’s To­day pro­gram Fri­day.
