May warns of catastrophe if lawmakers don't back Brexit deal

May warns of catastrophe if lawmakers don't back Brexit deal

Approve my deal or risk no Brexit at all, British Prime Minister Theresa May will warn lawmakers Monday as she tries to shore up support ahead of a key vote Tuesday.

Writing in the Sunday Express, she said: "When you turned out to vote in the referendum, you did so because you wanted your voice to be heard".

"The country does have a right to know what members of parliament are for, not just what they are against, and it's important that the house comes to a view as to what it can back", Barclay said.

While Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay, pictured above, said there had been "some movement" from MPs to support the agreement which is widely expected to be defeated, he said he thought that if it fell the Commons would eventually support something "along the lines of this deal".

A group of British lawmakers, including some former Tory ministers, are working on a way to allow non-government members to take control of the timetable and bring legislation forward that would make it illegal to leave the European Union without a deal, if May loses the vote, according to the Sunday Times.

Pushing Brexit beyond the March 29 and into July would mean the United Kingdom would have to once again participate in another round of European Parliament elections in May.

MPs, she said, should respect the results of the 2016 referendum in which 52 per cent of voters backed leaving the EU.

Were such a plan to succeed, the government would lose control of parliamentary business, threatening its ability to govern, putting Brexit legislation at risk.

Two days before a vote in parliament on her Brexit deal with Brussels, Theresa May has warned of a "catastrophic" breach of trust if Brexit is thwarted. She previously postponed the vote, to the outrage of many in Parliament, when it looked sure to be defeated.

The Prime Minister will use a speech to factory workers in Stoke-on-Trent on the eve of the critical Commons vote on her exit plan to ask MPs to consider the "consequences" of their actions on the faith of British people in democracy.

"What Article 50 says is what 500 MPs voted for, backing up our vote in a referendum, backing up our vote in a General Election where 85 per cent of us voted for parties saying they would deliver Brexit".

However, despite her targeting of Remainers, May's biggest challenge is still likely to come from hardline pro-Brexit lawmakers within her own party.

"We will do everything we can to prevent a no-deal exit".

Sir Vince said this could happen by cancelling Article 50 - which he noted would be "resented by lots of people" - or via a second referendum.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe warned on Thursday that the world did not want to see a disorderly Brexit and that he fully supported May's withdrawal deal.

"My own view is that I would rather get a negotiated deal now, if we can, to stop the danger of a no-deal exit from the European Union on the 29th of March which would be catastrophic for industry, catastrophic for trade".
