British Prime Minister Theresa May ,  has according to media reports reportedly announced  that she is delaying a crucial Parliament vote planned for December 11  of her controversial Brexit deal, amid continuing divisions over aspects of the Withdrawal Agreement struck with the European Union.

Addressing the House of Commons, she admitted that the deal looks set to be rejected by a ‘significant margin’ due to ongoing concerns over the so-called ‘backstop’, which many fear would keep the United Kingdom within the EU Customs Union even after Brexit.

May told MPs she would be speaking to EU leaders ahead of a summit later this week about the ‘clear concerns’ expressed by lawmakers.

“It is the right deal for Britain. I am determined to do all I can to secure the reassurances this House requires, to get this deal over the line and deliver for the British people,” she said.

“Many of the most controversial aspects of this deal — including the backstop — are simply inescapable facts of having a negotiated Brexit. Those members who continue to disagree need to shoulder the responsibility of advocating an alternative solution that can be delivered,” she said.
