The holding of a second referendum on the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union would be irreparably detrimental to the policy of the British government. This is stated in the speech of British Prime Minister Theresa May, with which she will speak in the House of Commons of the British Parliament on December 17 and excerpts from which leads on Monday the press Association.
“Let’s not break the promise to the British people. Another vote will cause irreparable damage to the integrity of our policy,” May said, stressing that the new plebiscite will put into question in the eyes of voters the ability of conservatives to “implement democracy.”
May also believes that the new referendum “will further divide the country at a time when it is necessary to work on its unification.”
The statement of the British Prime Minister in the House of Commons will follow after the data appeared in the British press that some members of the
government of the United Kingdom are considering holding another referendum on Brexit. As previously reported by The Times, most members of the British government consider unviable agreement on the terms of “Brexit”, which was reached by May and the leaders of the European Union. According to the publication, the British Cabinet openly discussed the option of a new plebiscite. This idea is supported in one way or another by five Ministers, including Finance Minister Philip Hammond and Minister of Labour and pensions Amber Rudd.
Meanwhile, the Minister of education of the United Kingdom Damian Hinds on the air of Sky News on Sunday said that the British government is not discussing the idea of organizing a new vote on Brexit.
The referendum on the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union was held on June 23, 2016. It won with the result of 51.9% opponents of European integration.
