Brexit: MPs having indicative votes next week in the UK Parliament

The Brexit-deal is accelerating next week in the UK Parliament. The MPs will have several indicative votes related to different Brexit-outcomes or second referendum. This means practically that all outcomes are open in this situation.

The general opinion of the Brexit-deal has gain new levels while millions of British people have signed the pledge against leaving the EU. On Saturday there were also protest marching in London to rise the overall interest of the topic and voting for a second referendum.

According to weekend newspapers there has also an internal discussion of the Prime Minister Theresa May´s role in the Conservative party. This shows the tensions what the Brexit-deal is having also inside the party. The BBC reported on Sunday that Theresa May could gain support for her Brexit deal if she promises to stand down as a prime minister, according to senior party representatives.

On the other hand, the finance minister Philip Hammond commented on Sunday, that Britain must find a way to leave the EU in an orderly fashion rather than trying to oust Prime Minister Theresa May.

And one can say that the MPs are more or less frustrated with the situation. As MP George Freeman tweeted: “…across the country you can see the anger. Everyone feels betrayed. Trust in democracy is collapsing. This cant go on.”

The EU leaders agreed last week that the Brexit-deal can be delayed until at last 12 April. If May´s deal is approved next week in the Parliament, the EU has agreed to extent the Brexit deadline until 22 May.

If the UK Parliament is not backing the Goverment´s deal and no other plan is revealed then the UK is set to leave the EU on the 12th April.

The big question for the next week is, if May´s deal is getting enough votes in the Parliament. The Goverment´s deal has been rejected two times in the Parliament before. On the other hand, the House of the Commons Speaker John Bercow has commented that the May´s deal needs fundamentally new items in order to be voted again in the Parliament.
