LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Teresa May has offered legislators to vote for just over two weeks on whether Brexit should be postponed or a potentially disruptive exit from the EU if its attempt to ratify the Agreement about divorce will fail.
The opening of the opportunity to participate in the breaking of the table is one of the biggest turning points in Britain's Brexit labyrinthine crisis after the shock vote of the 2016 referendum to exit the EU.
After the British parliament voted 432-202 against the divorce deal in January, the worst defeat for the government in modern British history, May has repeatedly tried to use the threat of a potentially disruptive Brexit to get deeds from the EU.
But British lawmakers are concerned that May is in danger of falling into the world's largest economy before the economic crisis, which threatens to usurp Brexit's control of the government in a series of votes on Wednesday.
Speaking in parliament on Tuesday, May said that if she does not receive approval of her agreement by March 1
If they reject this option, deputies will have the right to vote on March 14 at the request for a "brief, limited extension" of Brexit's delay.
"The United Kingdom will leave the agreement only on March 29, if the Parliament has a clear agreement on this result," said May. "Continuation can not accept any deal from the table".
"I believe that if we have to, we will ultimately succeed without an agreement," Mae said. "Let me understand – I do not want article 50 to be expanded. Our absolute focus should be on concluding the agreement and leaving on March 29.
May said that any continuation, no later than the end of June, should almost certainly be one-off and that its government should honor. the decision to leave the EU, since trust in British democracy has been put on the map. Earlier, The Sun and Daily Mail reported that May would formally exclude Brexit without an agreement, opening the door for a delay of weeks or months before the release date of March 29. On Monday, Reuters reported that the government was considering various options in May, including possible delays.
Sterling, which lost about 20 cents against the dollar after the Brexit 2016 referendum, rallied in May, excluding the Brexit brokerage agreement, but declined to $ 1.3191 after May.
"She seems to give us a date for a new rock's edge," said Kenneth Clark, a veteran pro-European deputy of conservatives.
NEW CLIFF EDGE?
The delay would increase the chances to change Brexit, especially since the Labor Party's opposition is inclined to support another referendum, although much depends on the degree of delay.
While businesses are increasingly warning about the risk of chaotic exit from the EU and its impact on trade and investment, any delay will be an anathema to Pro-Brexit members of the conservative party in May.
Both British main parties are under intense pressure to change the course on Brexit, although both are officially committed to the outcome of the referendum.
Jeremy Corbin, leader of opposition work Jeremy Corbin said on Tuesday that even if Maya approved a Brexit agreement with Parliament, it should be "confirmed" by public vote.
"The failed Prime Minister's agreement gives no certainty or guarantees for the future and was completely rejected by this Parliament," Corbin said to the parliament.
Corbin said that the May flies clock "grotesque reckless". "This is not embarrassment, it's a purposeful strategy for escaping."
But the inclination to another referendum causes labor problems, many of which traditional voters supported the exit from the EU.
The 2016 referendum, in which 17.4 million voters supported withdrawal and 16.1 million supported the stay, showed that the country is divided much more than the EU and fuels the soul of everything from secession and immigration to capitalism and modern British .
The crisis left the allies and investors astonished country, which for decades was advertised as a surefire supporter of Western economic and political stability.
In the whole month to Brexit, the final result is unclear when scenarios, from the last minute to the next referendum, which warned in May, will open the referendum office or even the dirty Brexit.
May is trying to agree on changes to the agreement on the way she agreed with the EU last year and promised to return her for approval in parliament no later than March 12.
