Ad­vice hard­ens op­po­si­tion to Brexit deal

Fiji Sun - - World News - Lon­don: BBC

Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May’s Brexit deal has come un­der fire from al­lies and op­po­nents alike after the gov­ern­ment was forced to pub­lish le­gal ad­vice show­ing the United King­dom could be locked in­def­i­nitely in the Euro­pean Union’s or­bit.

After a string of hu­mil­i­at­ing par­lia­men­tary de­feats for May on Tues­day cast new doubt over her abil­ity to get a deal ap­proved, US in­vest­ment bank JP Mor­gan said the chances of Bri­tain call­ing off Brexit al­to­gether had in­creased.

As in­vestors and al­lies tried to work out the ul­ti­mate des­ti­na­tion for the world’s fifth-largest econ­omy, the North­ern Ir­ish party that props up May’s gov­ern­ment said le­gal ad­vice about the deal was “dev­as­tat­ing”.
