THERESA Might is insistent that she’s bought no Plan B for Brexit – simply days earlier than she’s set for a humiliating defeat within the Commons from her personal MPs.
However the actuality is that if it will get chucked out – and it’s wanting possible that it’ll – then all bets are off as to what occurs subsequent.
And the numbers look fairly bleak from the place it stands – with over 100 blasted the deal thus far.
Now nothing’s off the desk – from a basic election, Theresa Might quitting or a second referendum on Brexit.
No matter occurs the following week can be essential for our EU exit.
Again to Brussels for modifications
If Mrs Might loses the vote, however not by a lot, the PM could possibly be marched again to Brussels to attempt to get them to re-open the deal.
To date she’s stated she will be able to’t do that, and it will danger the entire deal.
But when MPs throw it out, it may ship a powerful sign that they received’t get behind it until it’s modified.
Extension of Article 50 for extra time
The PM set the clock rolling on our EU exit on March 29 2017, when she triggered the Article 50 course of which lets us exit the EU.
We’ve got only a few months till we give up it doesn’t matter what.
The PM may attempt to purchase extra time for talks and modifications to the deal by rescinding Article 50, or asking the EU for an extension.
However final week the PM stated she wasn’t open to doing this as a result of the entire deal can be in danger.
Push for Norway choice
The Solar revealed final month how Amber Rudd and Michael Gove have been in secret talks with Labour MPs about backing a Norway-style cope with the EU if Mrs Might fails.
The UK may be part of the European Free Commerce Space and nonetheless have the ability to do commerce offers, however the PM can be unable to say she’s taken again management of our borders as it will enable limitless immigration.
And we may nonetheless be pressured to pay cash to the EU as properly.
The PM has stated this selection received’t be proper for Britain, however she could possibly be persuaded to vary her thoughts
Theresa Might quits
The PM has all the time stated she has an obligation to serve her nation and ship for the individuals, however for a way lengthy?
Mrs Might has stubbornly fought on regardless of so many telling her to pack it in.
There’s all the time the possibility that she would possibly throw within the towel and depart the problem to another person if the vote reveals an enormous defeat.
Final week she refused thrice to rule out quitting, and yesterday she hinted that Brexit plan B was an issue for her successor.
Keep in mind when Mrs Might stated she wasn’t planning after which known as a snap election?
Yep, we have been all fairly shocked too.
However there’s all the time an opportunity that the political turmoil may end in one other vote – giving Mrs Might the possibility to promote her deal to the general public and get them behind her.
Nevertheless, after final 12 months’s fiasco the place she misplaced a handful of seats, the PM’s certain to suppose it over a bit extra first. She’s denied she desires one other election in the meanwhile.
Any probability that Jeremy Corbyn would get into energy can be seen as a danger most Tories are unwilling to take.
One other referendum
Remainers have been pushing for this for ages, as a result of they need to overturn the results of the referendum.
And plenty of Tories are becoming a member of the rising calls too.
Mrs Might may attempt to settle the problem as soon as and for all by calling a vote on her deal.
However that will open up the potential of what to placed on the poll – would it not be her deal or no deal, or her deal and stay within the EU?
The PM’s stated thus far we should respect the results of the poll in 2016 and holding one other vote can be divisive for the entire nation.
Tories oust Theresa
We all know a minimum of 25 MPs had written letters of no confidence in Mrs Might final month, however the magical variety of 48 was by no means reached.
Brexiteer MPs stated they’d attempt to oust her once more after the vote as a substitute.
If sufficient really feel strongly sufficient that she will be able to’t lead them on, the vote may spark a contemporary Tory management contest.
After 48 letters are acquired, Sir Graham Brady will announce a vote of confidence within the PM.
If half of her MPs again her, she’s protected for a 12 months. If not, we’ll be plunged right into a contest that would take months to discover a new chief and PM.
Yesterday Sir Graham urged her to delay the vote – hinting she could possibly be toast if she didn’t.
