May Offers MPs Withdrawal Agreement Passes


The United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May has now offered MPs referendum European Union withdrawal agreement passes. May has said MPs have "one last chance" to deliver Brexit, urging them to back what she said was a "new deal".

In this regard it means MPs will get a vote on whether to hold another referendum if they back the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill, she said

Jacob Rees-Mogg has described MPs deal on offer was "worse than before", while Zac Goldsmith said the bill was a "convoluted mess" and the prime minister - who has offered to quit once a Brexit agreement is approved by Parliament - should leave now.

The Labour called it was a "rehash" of existing plans and Tory Brexiteers took to social media to vent their anger.

The bill also contains new guarantees on workers' rights, environmental protections and the Northern Irish border as well a customs "compromise".

MPs have rejected the withdrawal agreement negotiated with the European Union  three times.

In what is seen as a last roll of the dice, Mrs May is now bringing the Withdrawal Agreement Bill - legislation required to bring the agreement into UK law - to Parliament in early June. If MPs reject the bill, she warned them a negotiated exit would be "dead in the water" and Brexit could be stopped.
