The move reportedly underlined to what extent Theresa May has lost her authority, although she said the government would not be bound by the results of the so-called indicative votes on Wednesday.
British Prime Minister Theresa May admitted Monday she had still not secured the votes needed to get her Brexit deal through parliament, raising again the prospect that Britain could crash out of the European Union in two weeks' time.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn met with Theresa May for over an hour on Monday, holding a "frank and comprehensive exchange of views", according to a statement from the main opposition party.
May urged lawmakers to back her deal, saying the only other options were cancelling or delaying Brexit. Addressing recent political turmoil over British soil on Brexit issue had been a complete chaos, a protestor from Bristol who attended Saturday's anti-Brexit demonstration, Gareth Rae, 59, said, "I would feel differently if this was a well-managed process and the government was taking sensible decisions".
He said there should be an "orderly" process to replace the Prime Minister, with a full leadership contest rather than an interim successor.
Earlier May told parliament "Unless this House agrees to it, no deal will not happen", prompting some lawmakers to say she had ruled out a "no deal" exit. Some lawmakers have asked May to name her departure date as the price for supporting her deal, though it was unclear when a third vote might take place.
Pushing for a longer delay and holding United Kingdom elections for the European Parliament would "unleash a torrent of pent-up frustration from voters", Fox warned, adding that he hasn't detected any change of sentiment in the country to reverse the original 2016 decision to leave the EU.
Now, Britain will leave on May 22 if the prime minister's deal is approved by parliament this week.
Meanwhile, the Sunday Times reported that 11 unidentified senior ministers could try to oust May today as she has become a toxic and erratic figure whose judgment has "gone haywire". While a "no-deal" scenario is not desirable, the European Union is prepared for it, the statement adds.
Monday's parliamentary votes are aimed at giving lawmakers greater control over what the country does next and could definitively pull Brexit out of May's hands in the coming days.Читайте также: Pinterest Files For An Initial Public Offering Of Stock On NYSE
"We don't want a no-deal Brexit, we'd much rather have the Withdrawal Agreement, but if it is to be a no-deal, let's do it quickly", said the European Union official under condition of anonymity.
Michael Gove, David Lidington and Philip Hammond were all forced to come out and deny a looming coup against the prime minister over the weekend, after discussion around her possible exit date grew.
Parliament may take a series of votes this week to determine what proposals, if any, could command majority support.
Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who was one of a group of prominent Brexiteers to meeting Mrs May at Chequers on Sunday, claimed the Government had "chickened out" of delivering Brexit. "If she really wants her deal to go through Parliament, the PM could still set out convincing proofs of how the next phase of the negotiations - when all key questions are to be settled - will be different to the first", he wrote.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
