LONDON – Prime Minister Theresa May warned Sunday that a leadership change would not make the Brexit negotiations easier because opponents in her conservative party threaten to abstain from her and the former Brexit secretary suggested she failed to resist bullying from the European union officials.
As furious conservative rebels try to collect the numbers to trigger a misunderstood vote, she insisted that she had not thought to end.
“A change of leadership at this point will not make the negotiations easier and it will not change parliamentary arithmetic,” she told Sky News.
Allow the next seven days to “be critical” of successful Brexit talks and that she will travel to Brussels to meet with EU leaders before a summit meeting of the European Council on 25 November.
A notice last week that Britain has drafted a divorce agreement with the EU triggered a political crisis in Britai n, with the agreement contested by both opposition and members of May’s own conservatives. Two state councils and several junior government members quit, and more than 20 legislators have filed in confidence in May. Forty-one such letters ̵
1; or 15 percent of conservative legislators – needed for a leadership challenge vote.
Asked about the attacks aimed at her, May said: “It does not distract me. Politics is a tough business and I have been in it for a long time. “
Dominic Raab, who finished Thursday as a Brexit secretary, said” there is no thing and there is political will and resolve. “
” If we can not close this shop on reasonable terms, we must be very honest with the country that we will not be muted and choked or bullied and we will go, “he told the Sunday Times.
Many pro-Brexit Conservatives want a clean break with the EU and argue that the close relations between the United Kingdom and the EU required by the agreement would leave the United Kingdom a wheal state without being able to independently distinguish itself from the block.
The draft agreement predicts that Britain leaves the EU as scheduled on March 29 but remains within the single market internal market and is bound by its rules until the end of December 2020.
It also undertakes the two sides of the contested “backstop” solution as would keep the UK in a customs union with the EU until a permanent trade agreement is drawn up. It will serve as a guarantee that the frontier The Kingdom of Northern Ireland and EU Member Ireland was free from customs checkpoints after Brexit.
Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn told Sky News Sunday that his party will vote against the deal.
