LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Theresa May said Thursday that British legislators voted in favor of voting for her Brexit Store: Accept her business or face an exit without agreement or even the replacement of Brexit.
May said she spoke with legislators to give Parliament a greater role in whether Northern Ireland’s backstop arrangements would trigger, even though she gave some details.
Can anyone say that some in Parliament tried to frustrate Brexit and did not think that another referendum on Brexit was the right course.
“There are three options: one is to leave the European Union an agreement … the other two are that we leave without an agreement or that we have no brexit at all”, said May to BBC radio.
“It’s obvious that there are those in the house who want to frustrate Brexit … and evict British people’s vote and it’s not right.”
May repeatedly ask questions about whether she would delay December 1
1 vote but showed up on possible concessions on the Northern Ireland backstop.
“There are questions about how to decide if we go backstop, because it’s not automatic,” she said. “The question is: Are we entering the backstop? Do we extend what I call the implementation period?”
When asked repeatedly what her “Plan B” would be if her business was rejected, she did not directly answer the questions.
