British Prime Minister Theresa May has according to news report by news agency AFP, has called on the European Union for “one more push” to strike a Brexit compromise deal and told MPs that rejecting the agreement could mean Britain never leaves.
“It needs just one more push,” May told an audience of workers in Grimsby, a North Sea fishing port, adding that a vote against a deal meant “we might never leave the EU at all”.
British MPs will vote on Tuesday on whether to accept May’s Brexit deal, which could include new elements following this weekend’s frantic round of negotiations. “Next week MPs in Westminster face a crucial choice: Whether to back the Brexit deal or to reject it,” May said.
“Back it and the UK will leave the European Union. Reject it and no one knows what will happen,” she said.
“We may not leave the EU for many months, we may leave without the protections that the deal provides. We may never leave at all.”
