‘Re­ject­ing Brexit would be cat­a­strophic’

Bri­tain’s Prime Min­is­ter

Theresa May has pleaded with law­mak­ers to ac­cept her deal for leav­ing the EU, warn­ing that faith in democ­racy was at stake.

Writ­ing in the Sun­day Ex­press ahead of a crit­i­cal vote this week, May urged law­mak­ers to “do what is right for the coun­try,” be­cause she said re­ject­ing the will of the peo­ple would be “a cat­a­strophic and un­for­giv­able breach of trust in our democ­racy.”

May postponed a vote in mid-De­cem­ber when it be­came clear law­mak­ers would re­sound­ingly re­ject the Brexit deal, but a com­pro­mise mea­sure has left both pro-Euro­pean and pro-Brexit politi­cians un­happy.
