May accuses Labour of pushing Britain towards no-deal Brexit
Dec 02, 2018, 02:27
MPs will vote on Prime Minister Theresa May'sBrexit deal in the Commons in two weeks, but with staunch cross-party opposition persisting, the PM may well see her deal voted down.
He added: "This format would also not suitably represent either the support for Remain across the whole of the United Kingdom, or the growing public and political support - including from the SNP, the Greens, the Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru and an increasing number of members of both the Labour Party and the Conservatives - for a second referendum in which the option of remaining in the European Union could be put to the people".
Several other ministers have quit the government in the past two weeks, saying they can not support the agreement.
"The focus of myself and the government is on the vote that is taking place on Dec 11".
Asked which of those two options was more likely if her deal does not pass, she said: "We haven't had the vote yet".
"I think it is important members of parliament focus on the nature of this vote".
Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, a staunch Brexiter who is one of the most vocal critics of the deal, said Friday that the government was trying to frighten people into accepting it with dire forecasts about the impact of leaving the European Union without an agreement.
The Government on Wednesday published an assessment of the economic impact of Brexit, showing Britain would be worse off in any scenario outside the EU.
Mrs May said that if her plan was voted down by Parliament, the government and businesses would have to make decisions about implementing preparations for no deal. She declined to entertain questions about what alternative she might offer if the current agreement is rejected December 11.
"A no deal would cause real pain in communities right across Scotland, so all politicians have to come forward and do the right thing - and that includes the UK Parliament on 11 December".
Labour, the Lib Dems, the SNP, the DUP and many Tory MPs have said they will vote against the agreement, which has already been agreed between the United Kingdom and EU.
"A People's Vote is a practical way to get out of the constitutional crisis we are in".
However, fellow Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg has written in the Daily Telegraph of an effort to "frighten and to gull (people) into acquiescing to a non-Brexit Brexit". "That is actually a betrayal of the British people".
"A few days before the vote in the House of Commons, it is becoming more and more clear that this deal is the best possible - in fact, the only possible one". "What I hope to see and what I'm sure we will be seeing is opportunities for young people in the UK, opportunities for training and skilling young people in the UK", May told reporters at the G20 summit in Argentina.
May has faced questions as to why she is spending time selling her deal to the public rather than the lawmakers who will vote on it.
"This is about what is in the national interest, " she said. "In the lead up to what is a crucial vote, you will see more of that".
Mrs May will push the case for reform of the World Trade Organisation at the summit of industrialised nations on Friday and Saturday, including increasing transparency, updating dispute settlement processes and promoting trade in services and digital alongside goods.
