May ac­cuses anti-deal MPS of be­tray­ing their coun­try

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY NIGEL NEL­SON

THERESA May will ac­cuse MPS try­ing to block her Brexit deal of be­tray­ing their coun­try.

In her strong­est lan­guage yet the PM will say on Tuesday that if she does not get her way Brexit will be de­layed or scrapped al­to­gether.

A No10 in­sider said: “MPS must get be­hind it and sup­port this in the na­tional in­ter­est. They have a duty to de­liver the ref­er­en­dum re­sult.”

Although the PM’S words will be aimed at Labour, they are in­tended for the 100 Tories and 10 DUP MPS who say they will vote against her.

Mrs May yes­ter­day lost her tenth min­is­ter to the Brexit blood­bath while gain­ing the back­ing of an­other.

Science and univer­si­ties min­is­ter Sam Gy­imah quit and called for a sec­ond ref­er­en­dum if she fails to win over the Com­mons on Tuesday week.

He added: “We have given up our voice, our veto and our vote. We have a deal in name only.”

But Cul­ture Sec­re­tary Jeremy Wright backed Mrs May say­ing MPS were risk­ing no deal.

And at the G20 sum­mit in Ar­gentina, Ja­panese PM Shinzo Abe voiced con­cerns over the fu­ture in Bri­tain of car gi­ants Honda and Nis­san and begged Mrs May: “Avoid no deal.”

She has ten days to sell her deal to Par­lia­ment.
