UK braces for make or break Brexit week

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - Front Page - Pra­sun Son­walkar

LON­DON : It used to be said that a week is a long time in pol­i­tics, but the next two days alone are likely to throw up rare sce­nar­ios: the Theresa May gov­ern­ment los­ing the key vote on the EU with­drawal agree­ment on Tues­day and Labour tabling a no-con­fi­dence mo­tion soon after.

Lead­ing lights in the Brexit de­bate took to the news me­dia on Sun­day to reit­er­ate their po­si­tions. May in­sisted in a col­umn that fail­ure to de­liver Brexit would amount to “a cat­a­strophic and un­for­giv­able trust in our democ­racy”, urg­ing sup­port for the agree­ment.

For­mer prime min­is­ter John Ma­jor wrote that re­vok­ing Ar­ti­cle 50 (of the Lis­bon Treaty that deals with an EU mem­ber­state leav­ing the group) is the “only sen­si­ble”course.
