UK leader wins last bid and wins Brexit deal backs
LONDON (AP) – British Prime Minister Theresa May intends to tell lawmakers that she has received further guarantees on her Brexit deal from the European Union, in a last attempt to get support for the unpopular agreement.
May has to make a statement in the House of Commons Monday afternoon, a day before the legislators have to vote on her EU divorce offer.
May claims that defeating the deal could pave the way for EU support lawmakers to block the Brexit, with "catastrophic" results for the British's belief in democracy.
A handful of previously opposed legislators came behind the agreement in recent days, but they are lagging behind in those who are determined to vote against.
A defeat would upset the plans of the Brexit, weeks before the UK left the block on March 29.
