On Tuesday, the British Parliament is set to vote on the Brexit deal offered by the EU and negotiated by PM Theresa May. At the moment, it looks very unlikely that the UK Parliament will vote in favor of that deal. In interviews with the Sunday newspapers, the British Prime Minister warns that if the Members of Parliament do not approve the deal she’s negotiated, the country would enter ‘uncharted territory.’
Ms May told the Mail on Sunday: "It would mean grave uncertainty for the nation with a very real risk of no Brexit or leaving the European Union with no deal.
"We have a leader of the opposition who thinks of nothing but attempting to bring about a general election, no matter what the cost to the country."
"As someone who cares passionately about my country and my party, I believe Jeremy Corbyn getting his hands on power is a risk we cannot afford to take."
May is struggling with an uprising of MPs within her own Conservative Party. It seems unlikely that she will gather enough votes to lock the deal Tuesday through parliament.
Downing Street denied Saturday night that PM May might postpone the vote to avoid defeat. "The vote goes through Tuesday," said a spokesperson. There was speculation about this in the media.
Meanwhile, former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab now claims the UK negotiating team could have got a better deal if they had been tougher in the talks, stating "there were moments in the negotiations where we could have pressed harder on the backstop, particularly around the exit mechanism.”
"The EU hung tough and I'm afraid we just weren't firm enough about that. If we go back and the EU continue to rebuff the perfectly reasonable proposals we're making, we need to be contemplating and prepared to be leaving on WTO terms."
Several rallies will be held in London today, both for and against Brexit. In one of them, former English Defence League founder and current activist Tommy Robinson is set to join a pro-Brexit march, organised by UKIP.
