Theresa May Brexit Battle Statement. MPs got to hear the PM’s plans for new Withdrawal Bill
The Prime Minister pledged a bold new deal and revealed it to the nation Tuesday May 21.
Theresa May said MPs have one last chance to deliver Brexit. PM urged them to back what she said was a “new deal”.
MPs will get a vote on whether to hold another referendum if they back the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill, she said.
The bill also contains new guarantees on workers’ rights, environmental protections and the Northern Irish border as well a customs “compromise”.
Labour said it was a “rehash” of existing plans and Tory Brexiteers took to social media to vent their anger.
Jacob Rees-Mogg said what was on offer was “worse than before”, while Zac Goldsmith said the bill was a “convoluted mess” and the prime minister – who has offered to quit once a Brexit agreement is approved by Parliament – should leave now.
Is this going to work? PM said she has made compromise and wants MPs to make them too. Will it work? The Bill goes to the House in June.
