MAY WARNS OF ‘CATASTROPHIC’ FAILURE ON BREXIT
London, Jan. 13: British Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday warned MPs preparing to vote down her EU divorce deal that failing to deliver Brexit would be a “catastrophic and unforgivable breach of trust in our democracy”.
May, who is fighting to save her withdrawal agreement negotiated with the bloc over 18 months of talks, told lawmakers they must not let down Brexitbackers in a crunch parliamentary vote on Tuesday. “Doing so would be an unforgivable breach of trust in our democracy,” May wrote in the Sunday Express.
“So my message to parliament this weekend is simple: it is time to forget the games and do what is right for our country.” Britain is set to leave the EU on March 29 but has yet to finalise the terms of its departure. The PM had postponed a House of Commons vote on her plan once to avoid defeat, and looks certain to see it rejected by MPs on Tuesday.
