UK PM pledges 'new and improved deal' to save Brexit plan

UK PM pledges
British Prime Minister Theresa May recently promised a ‘new and improved deal’ that will see her Brexit agreement through Parliament when it comes up for a fourth vote in the first week of June. May would ask lawmakers to consider an improved package of measures that honours the June 2016 referendum result in favour of Brexit, she wrote in ‘The Sunday Times’.

“When the Withdrawal Agreement Bill comes before MPs, it will represent a new, bold offer to MPs across the House of Commons, with an improved package of measures that I believe can win new support,” she wrote.

“The Cabinet will consider the details of those changes next week. It will also consider whether holding votes in Parliament to test support for possible solutions would be a useful prelude to MPs considering the legislation,” she said.

Though her new package will be a stronger proposition, it is important for the parliamentary arithmetic to fall into place to avert a chaotic no-deal Brexit and leave the European Union (EU) with a deal in place by the latest deadline of October 31, May cautioned.

“While the deal MPs are to vote on will be different, the dynamics of their decision will remain the same. A majority of MPs are against leaving without a deal; whatever you think of that as an outcome, Parliament will do all it can to block it, she said.

Earlier this week, opposition Labour Party had called off the cross-party talks initiated after May’s last Commons defeat in an effort to arrive at a parliamentary consensus on Brexit.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn blamed her weak leadership, which is now on a time-bound clock, for the failure of the talks, according to global newswires.

Brexit talks between May’s Conservative Party and the Labour Party had collapsed hours after May agreed last week to set out in early June a timetable for her departure.

After she puts her deal to a vote in the week of June 3, when US President Donald Trump is scheduled to visit the United Kingdom, May has said she will agree a timetable for the election of her successor.

Before then, the government is considering holding a series of ‘indicative votes’ to see what path, if any, lawmakers might be able to agree. (DS)
