Theresa May intends to speak to the house of Commons of the British Parliament on November 26, warning deputies that the United Kingdom will face a number of unpleasant consequences if the draft approved in Brussels deal with the EU will not be approved by Westminster. The corresponding statement is contained in the text of May’s speech, excerpts from which published the newspaper Daily Telegraph Sunday evening.
“As Parliament, in the next few weeks we will have to consider this deal in detail, discuss it in a respectful manner, listen to the opinion of people in our constituencies and make a decision on what is in our national interests,” says the Prime Minister, who, like all other members of the government, is a member of Parliament. – This is the choice that parliamentarians should make. We can support this deal by fulfilling our obligations to the voters in the referendum and take on the task of building a bright and secure future for our people. Or the Parliament can reject this deal, starting all over again, that will open the way for increasing contradictions and uncertainty with all the risks involved.”
Earlier, May promised to devote two weeks before the vote in Westminster campaign, during which she will meet with residents of the United Kingdom, explaining
to them the essence of the transaction and its benefits.
Support the deal, which the May’s Cabinet agreed with Brussels, refuse not only the opposition Labour party, but also part of the party members of the Prime Minister. In addition, for the deal in its current form refuses to vote ally Tory — Democratic unionist party (DUP) of Northern Ireland, a shaky Alliance with which provides the conservatives a majority in Parliament.
On Sunday, the leaders of the 27 EU countries approved an agreement with the UK on Brexit and a political Declaration on future relations with London. In order to enter into force, this agreement must be approved by the parliaments of all remaining EU countries, the European Parliament and British legislators. The latter should consider the document in mid-December, and this process will not be simple, given that the deal in its current form split not only British society, but also the ruling Conservative party. Brexit itself is scheduled for March 29, 2019.
