Brexit: Jeremy Hunt says UK Parliament won’t allow no deal

British MPs could seal the fate of Theresa May's Brexit deal this week

British MPs could seal the fate of Theresa May's Brexit deal this week

Brexit could be cancelled depending on how next week's vote on the Withdrawal Agreement plan goes, according to the Foreign Secretary.

And three times she declined to say whether she would remain a member of the Government if it opted for a no-deal Brexit.

Pro-EU rebels are said to be plotting a "coup" against the government to give Parliament control of the negotiations with the EU and rule out a no-deal departure.

Her maligned deal is widely expected to be voted down this week with the Prime Minister expected to be trounced by an insurmountable 228 votes.

In the first, MPs backed an amendment aimed at making it more hard to leave the European Union without a deal. "And Brexit paralysis ultimately could lead to no Brexit".

"I'm in a leave constituency, but I would do what's right".

Mr Hunt said: "It's now looking much less likely that Parliament would allow a no-deal outcome anyway". And its emergence should unite those of us who voted Leave in our determination to get Brexit over the line.

Britain and the European Union reached a hard-won Brexit deal in November, but the agreement has run aground in Parliament.

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt warned Friday that the country would face "Brexit paralysis" if lawmakers rejected the deal next week. "Instead of embarking on another fruitless effort of renegotiation, it is time to hand this crucial decision back to the people".

"I don't like the prospect of a no deal".

Mrs May was boosted on Thursday by two Tory backbenchers - her former policy adviser George Freeman, and Trudy Harrison - indicating they would back her deal as well as by a call from Japanese PM Shinzo Abe for the United Kingdom to avoid a no-deal.

But former Brexit minister Dominic Raab said Britain should be prepared to leave with no arrangement in place.

The Prime Minister said failing to deliver what the public voted for in the referendum would be "unforgivable" and undermine democracy. But many also dislike May's agreement, which has displeased both sides of Britain's Brexit divide.
