The Prime Minister of UK Theresa May met with disapproval’s from Member of Parliament representing all parties and from various business leaders once the “Plan B”, which was almost similar to the first one was revealed. The earlier plan had crashed with a record downfall earlier.
Statements like the prime minister is not accepting the truth of the rejection by vowing to once more try and get modifications to the Irish border in spite of repeated claims by EU were heard. Some of the business leaders stated that it appeared to be “one more bleak day” as it brought the UK one more step closer to chances of crashing out.
Jeremy Corbyn was more aggressive by stating “groundhog day” at the same time senior Tories said “the situation is similar to like last week’s vote never happened” and due to this the UK is being turned into a laughing stock.
The prime minister instantly came across a new threat in the form of a demand that she allows her ministers a free vote on a backbench move to prevent a no-deal Brexit, or many of the ministers would resign. Amber Rudd, secretary for work and pensions, has made the call over parliaments efforts for the coming week, this would force the government to seek an extension to the Article 50 process.
When presented by Labour’s Yvette Cooper, along with the back-up support of ex-Tory ministers, it would empower the parliament to put onward its own bill, demanding the postponement until the end of 2019, in case a deal is passed by the end of February. However, there is no announcement by the Tories yet, if the MPs would be whipped against the cooper plan, as it is maintained by large numbers of ministers resolute to block a no-deal.
As a result, in the chamber Ms. May announced three key changes to her original rejected deal. These were, offering a better say for parliament over future trade talks, tougher protections on workers’ rights and the environment, and drive on the backstop. Out of these points the first two were already shared by the prime minister last week too. And hence the outrage as the new plan had no innovative solution and thinking approach towards breaking the deadlock.
Afterwards her spokesman had said, that there would be a further effort to changes on fears about its “permanence”, however no mention of new ideas was done. There is a general thinking that prime minister might plan a vote next week that will allow MPs to discuss their detailed objections to the backstop.
