WHAT MAY HAP­PEN

Daily Mirror - - NEWS - BY NI­COLA BARTLETT

THERESA May is des­per­ately try­ing to per­suade Tory rebels to change their mind and back her mean­ing­ful vote.

IF SHE WINS

Al­most 100 Tory MPs have said pub­licly they will not sup­port the deal, along with the DUP, Labour, SNP and Lib­eral Democrats.

But if the PM man­ages to pick off enough wa­ver­ers and the deal passes, then no-deal prepa­ra­tions can stop and the UK can move on to the next stage – which is agree­ing a fu­ture trade deal with the EU along the lines set out in the po­lit­i­cal dec­la­ra­tion. can­not pass laws is es­sen­tially no longer in charge of things.

LABOUR WINS NO-CON­FI­DENCE VOTE

At the same time, Labour are pre­par­ing to trig­ger a vote of no con­fi­dence in the Gov­ern­ment as a whole if she loses the deal, in the hope of trig­ger­ing a gen­eral elec­tion.

This could come as early as March and the party have in­di­cated they would ask the EU to de­lay Ar­ti­cle 50 to al­low new ne­go­ti­a­tions.

How­ever, the DUP have said they would back the Tories in such a vote if the Brexit deal loses and it will be hard to get enough

Tory MPs to rebel and pass it.
