Theresa May med en av sine hardeste utfordrere, Boris Johnson.

Theresa May fikk regjeringens godkjennelse av Brexit-avtalen, men siste ord er ikke sagt. Regjeringen er splittet. Nå går avtalen til avstemning i Parlamentet.

Problemet er at May står overfor misnøye på begge fløyer: Både blant Leave og Remain. Ingen er fornøyd. Misnøyen er nok sterkest på Brexit-siden. Leave-folkene føler ikke de har fått det folkeavstemningen lovet.

During the cabinet meeting, British journalists said anger among Brexit-supporting Conservative lawmakers was so high that they might call for a vote of no confidence in her leadership. There was no confirmation.

The ultimate outcome for the United Kingdom remains uncertain: scenarios range from a calm divorce to rejection of May’s deal, potentially sinking her premiership and leaving the bloc with no agreement, or another referendum. (…)

A summit of EU leaders is likely be held on Nov. 25, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said. May gave no date for a vote in parliament but she will need the votes of about 320 of the 650 lawmakers. It is unclear whether she has the numbers.
