May accuses anti-deal MPS of betraying their country
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.
