Bloomberg: Theresa May can face catastrophic defeat in parliament


11/12/2018


According to Bloomberg, citing three people familiar with the situation, the cabinet should meet on November 12 to approve May’s plan, but there were no signs of further progress the night before.

If May intends to make a deal in November, as investors and companies hope, this week will be the last to unite her fragmented cabinet.

Getting any agreement on withdrawal from the EU in a split in parliament itself is May’s one of the biggest problems. At the same time, various factions that oppose the Prime Minister’s approach continue to insist on their position, and the situation looks even more serious than previously assumed, the newspaper notes.

Conservative lawmakers consolidated on November 11 with the Northern Irish Party, which supports a minority in May’s government. They threatened to abandon the deal on which she is working, even if she convinces the Cabinet of Ministers to approve the plan in the coming days.

“If the government makes a historic mistake in terms of prioritizing EU pacification when creating an independent UK, then, unfortunately, we will have to vote against the deal,” the Sunday Telegraph quoted Sammy Wilson, who represents the democratic community.

On the other hand, conservatives are increasingly criticizing May due to resignation of Jo Johnson as Minister of Transport on November 9. She raised concerns about the possible resignation of other members of the Cabinet. At the same time, former Minister of Foreign Affairs Boris Johnson called for a second referendum, arguing that the negotiation held by Theresa May led Britain to risk losing its sovereignty even more than EU membership required.

At the same time, the European Union rejected a key proposal on Brexit from the British Prime Minister. According to the Sunday Times, her initiative was to create an "independent mechanism" to resolve the "custom puzzle."

In this mechanism, some saw an opportunity to do without a rigid border with Northern Ireland. But the proposed version of Brussels did not fit. From the EU point of view, compliance with the decisions can only be monitored within the European Court of Justice.

The publication also reports that four ministers who opposed Brexit are likely to leave May’s government, despite the fact that Prime Minister hoped to unite her cabinet and overcome the “final barrier” in the negotiation process.
