Brexit Exit Theresa? - 80 Tory MPs And Opposition Labour To Vote Against PM May’s Plan

One of the agreements that the British politicians made with regards to the Brexit negotiations, was that the UK Parliament would get a final vote on the ‘deal’ plan to be presented to the EU before the signatures were put on it.

Whereas we informed you earlier this week that UK Prime Minister was warned that many of her own party’s politicians risked voting against her ‘Chequers’ plan for a Brexit break from the EU (which she will normally deliver next month), the numbers of that rebel group have by now become truly staggering.

Former minister Mr Steve Baker, who (just as Mr Boris Johnson and Mr David Davis before him) resigned from his post over the prime minister’s proposal for leaving the EU, claimed that some 80 Tory party members would vote against their own Prime Minister if she went ahead and presented the plan. Mr Baker stated: “If we come out of conference with her hoping to get Chequers through on the back of Labour votes, I think the EU negotiators would probably understand that if that were done, the Tory party would suffer the catastrophic split which thus far we have managed to avoid.”

And yesterday, the main opposition Labour party, via it’s shadow Foreign Minister Ms Emily Thornberry, warned that if PM May went ahead and presented her plan as it currently is being put forward, they would also vote against it, realistically forcing her to resign afterwards and call elections before the end of the year.

Ms Thornberry, who many say is the legitimate heir to current Labour leader Mr Jeremy Corbyn who’s faced with multiple scandals, claimed that a workable deal was “just not going to happen” under Mrs May and that her party would thus normally be pushing for a general election within months.

“I can’t see them coming back with a deal that is going to meet our six tests and I can’t see them coming back with a deal that will unite the Tory party, for heaven’s sake . . . They are not capable of governing . . . We’re either going to have a general election in the autumn or we’re going to have it in the spring.”

“I don’t think this kind of half-in, half-out of the customs union will work. I think it’s just full of red tape and it’s going to cost us too much money. It’s just nonsense.”
