SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt (Reuters) – Prime Minister Theresa May interrupted a vote in parliament on her Brexit agreement until as late as March 12 – just 17 days before the UK was to leave the EU – set up a showdown this week with MPs accusing her of running out of watch.
When the Brexit crisis goes down the line, May said a so-called "meaningful vote" would not take place this week as expected. The House will still have a number of Brexit votes on Wednesday, but May's deal itself will not be on the table.
On her way to an EU-Middle East Summit, May said she was close to bringing home changes to her agreement that would satisfy objections to it, but needed time for meetings with European leaders, which meant that It wouldn't be ready this week.
"We will not bring a meaningful vote to Parliament this week, but we want to make sure it happens by March 1
Opponents accuse her of deliberately running around the clock to force Parliament to choose between an agreement that it has already rejected or abandoned without any agreement, which companies say would destroy their supply chains.
Both corn conservatives and the largest opposition party in the labor market are formally obliged to leave the EU in accordance with a referendum in 2016, but both parties are internally divided over whether or not to do so.
Before May expired for Egypt, three members of its cabinet split publicly with government policy and said they would sit with rebels and opposition parties to stop a no-deal Brexit.
Yvette Cooper, an opposition Employer who has proposed a bill block a non-act Brexit, said last May's announcement that she will not make an appointment to parliament this week and leave it until just two weeks before the Brexit day, is completely shambolic and irresponsible. "
" "She can't just keep driving and dithering like this, or there's a real risk, our whole country tumbles off a cliff edge in a chaotic no deal that no one is ready for, and that would hit food prices, medicine supplies, manufacture and safety. " Some MPs will seek to get control of Brexit in Wednesday's voting rights, although such trials have been defeated earlier in May, seeking more time to get an agreement.
Senior Workmen said the majority of The opposition was closer to supporting another Brexit referendum and could do so as soon as this week.
Nine Labor MPs and three conservatives interrupted their parties last week in the biggest shakeup of their kind in British politics for decades. which increases the prospect of further deficiencies by both parties.
The British Parliament voted 432-202 against maize agreement in January, a defeat at the biggest margin of modern British history, May says she can still gain support for it if EU leaders facilitate rules to ensure that no hard land border arises between British-controlled Northern Ireland and the rest of Ireland.
President of the European Council Donald Tusk told May that the EU needs clarity that an EU official said whatever block could be offered would give majority in the British parliament before a summit of EU leaders scheduled on 21-21. March.
EU officials have considered many theoretical scenarios, including an extension of Brexit for up to two years, although it is unclear whether such a delay would solve the current death.
The EU has excluded the reopening of the withdrawal agreement. Both sides are looking at a possible legal supplement to assure MEPs who care that the Irish border plans could keep Britain captive in EU circles in the coming years.
But Europeans are increasingly frustrated by Britain's political chaos: "You need two to dance tango, and I know how to dance," said European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker when asked if He was out of what was supposed to give Brexit. "I have some Brexit fatigue."
