REBELOTE – The British Prime Minister announced on Tuesday, May 21, a series of compromises on the Brexit bill. Among them, the possibility of a new referendum to break the stalemate in which is cornered the United Kingdom.
This time will it be the right one? After three rejections of the Brexit deal brokered by Theresa May herself, the British Prime Minister announced on Tuesday (May 21st) a series of compromises for a new deal on the UK‘s exit from the EU to deputies.
In this one: the possibility to vote for the holding of a second referendum. For Theresa May, this agreement is “a last chance to find a way” to respond to the will expressed in 2016 by the British, said the head of government to the press.
Will go out, will not come out? When and under what conditions? It is these questions that Theresa May has been trying to answer with proposals to British MPs for months.
To convince them, the Prime Minister says that the new bill, which will be presented in early June, will provide additional guarantees on workers’ rights and environmental protections, which was also demanded by the Labor opposition.
Among the options also possible, in order to rally them to her cause: those of a second referendum, therefore, and a continuation in a temporary customs union with the EU. Last week, the head of the government had already announced that she would risk a new vote after a meeting with Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition.
MEPs will vote on a draft law on Brexit that will set the legislative modalities of divorce, not the agreement itself. A sleight of hand that allows Theresa May to put the Brexit Agreement back on the agenda. “When MEPs vote, they will be faced with a very clear choice: to vote to make Brexit a reality or to hide again,” she said.
On several occasions already, British MPs have rejected the Brexit agreement concluded by the leader with Brussels. A situation that led him to postpone the date of the release twice. Officially, this date is supposed to occur on October 31 at the latest.
