Nor­way-style Brexit Plan B be­ing read­ied

Khaleej Times - - FRONT PAGE -

lon­don — A close ally of Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May on Satur­day be­came the first cab­i­net min­is­ter to float a pos­si­ble Plan B if, as ex­pected, par­lia­ment next week rejects her plan to leave the Euro­pean Union.

While agree­ing with May that her deal pro­vides the best op­tion for ex­it­ing the EU, Am­ber Rudd, the Work and Pen­sions Min­is­ter, said a Nor­way-style re­la­tion­ship with the bloc might also of­fer a way out of the cur­rent dead­lock.

“If it (May’s plan) doesn’t get through any­thing could hap­pen: peo­ple’s vote, Nor­way plus, any of these op­tions could come for­ward,” she told BBC ra­dio on Satur­day. —
