Norway-style Brexit Plan B being readied
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. —
