‘We risk ending up with no Brexit at all’: Theresa May to rebels

British Prime Minister Theresa May warned her divided party on Sunday that there may be “no Brexit at all” if they wrecked her plan to forge a close relationship with the European Union after leaving the world’s biggest trading bloc.

In an article, Theresa May warns rebels on both sides of her party that there is no other “workable alternative future trading relationship” to the plan agreed at Chequers and fleshed out in a white paper this week.

“My message to the country this weekend is simple: we need to keep our eyes on the prize,” May wrote in the article for a¬†newspaper. “If we don’t, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all.”

However, former Brexit secretary David Davis, who quit in protest at the prime minister’s proposals, blasted an “astonishingly dishonest” claim there is no substitute plan for leaving the EU. His criticism was followed up by a direct attack on the “oddly secretive” Mrs. May by influential Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg.

With less than nine months to go before the United Kingdom is due to leave the EU on March 29, 2019, the country, the political elite and business leaders are still deeply divided over whether Brexit should take place and, if so, how.
