May: Back My Deal or ‘We Will Not Leave the EU for Many Months, if Ever’

Theresa May has penned a public warning to MPs to back her twice-rejected Brexit deal with the European Union, or else “we will not leave the EU for many months, if ever.”

The Prime Minister’s proposed Brexit deal with the EU received the heaviest defeat of any Government in Britain’s recorded history in January, and was rejected again by slightly less crushing but still overwhelming 149 votes on March 12th.

By convention, parliamentary reverses of this scale — coupled with losing her party’s Commons majority in a 2017 snap election and being subject to a vote of no confidence in which a majority of Tory backbenchers said Mrs May should go —

would have seen any other prime minister in modern times step down.
