- Brexit has only a “50-50” chance of happening if MPs vote against Theresa May’s deal, according to senior politician Liam Fox.
- The best way to guarantee Britain exits the European Union on March 29, 2019 is for MPs to support the withdrawal agreement.
- But there are no guarantees the agreement will get the support it needs. This is because, prior to Christmas, there were reports more than 100 MPs opposed it. Leading Conservatives even advocate a second referendum.
- Reacting to Fox’s “50-50” statement, the Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran said it is “actually 56-44” as public opinion has changed since the referendum.
- Moran said the public wants to stop this “badly-led disaster.”
The chances of Brexit happening on March 29 will be significantly reduced if MPs vote against Theresa May’s deal next month.
That is according to the international trade secretary Liam Fox who told the Sunday Times that “if we do not vote” for the existing withdrawal agreement then chances of exiting the European Union would be around “50-50,” down from a 100% certainty should May’s Brexit deal pass.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
