Britain Prime Minister Theresa May on Thursday, said that ahead of a vote over her Brexit deal, the British lawmakers had faced a choice either to accept her deal or face an exit with none of the deal or even to face the reversal of the Brexit deal.
May said she was having a conversation with the lawmakers about providing a bigger role to parliament over whether to trigger the Northern Irish backstop arrangement. Though, she did gave few details upon the issue.
According to news reports, May told the BBS radio: “There are three options: one is to leave the European Union with a deal … the other two are that we leave without a deal or that we have no Brexit at all.”
May said as some of the lawmakers of the parliament were forcefully trying to make Brexit a complicated deal and frustrate Brexit, so, she did not think to have another referendum over Brexit as it would not be the right course.
May further said, “It’s clear that there are those in the House of Commons who want to frustrate Brexit … and overturn the vote of the British people and that’s not right.”
May repeatedly avoided question raised over whether she would delay the vote of December 11 but however, she did not hinted at the possible compromises over the Northern Irish backstop.
May said, “There are questions about how decisions are taken as to whether we go into the backstop, because that isn’t an automatic.” She further said, “The question is: do we go into the backstop? Do we extend what I call the implementation period?”
