May Urges UK Lawmakers: Give Me More Time to Get Brexit Deal

Theresa May is expected to pledge in the Commons this week that MPs will get another say on Brexit if she can not recommend a revised plan this month.

Communities Secretary James Brokenshire has confirmed that Theresa May plans to give MPs another chance to vote on Brexit by the end of the month.

He said the move was necessary to stop Mrs May "running down the clock".

"If the meaningful vote has not happened, so in other words things have not concluded, then parliament would have that further opportunity [to vote] by no later than February 27", he said. With the United Kingdom yet to roll over the majority of the beneficial trade terms around the globe it gets through European Union membership, goods being readied for dispatch that take as long as six weeks to reach destinations in Asia could end up sat in quarantine or face disputes over who pays any new customs duties.

Theresa May insisted that she can secure a renegotiation of the Brexit deal, just to temporarily satisfy the hardline Brexiteers in her party, but she knows it won't be possible - the European Union has repeatedly refused to reopen the deal, and the backstop is the only guarantee for peace on the island of Ireland.

May wants to win over lawmakers in her Conservative Party with changes relating to the Northern Irish border, but the EU has refused to reopen that part of the deal and instead wants May to pursue a compromise with the main opposition Labour Party by agreeing closer UK-EU ties.


"No one could responsibly propose (a no-deal Brexit)".

The Prime Minister has been in Brussels this week seeking concessions on the Northern Irish backstop, the reason many MPs rejected her vote by historic margins in January.

"We can't allow that to happen". "There needs to be a day when Parliament says that's it, enough is enough". It's got to know where we're heading before we leave'.

Reaching a deal is "profoundly" in the interest of the U.K., Brokenshire told BBC Television's "Andrew Marr Show", but it is also important to give a sense of clarity and objective, which he believes May's new vote pledge will do.

"You've got to decide which of those Brexits you want before we leave - otherwise, we're going to leave without clarity".
