Theresa May insisterte på at en hard brexit er en mulighet hvis nye forhandlinger med EU ikke fører frem. Hun anså en ny folkeavstemning for å være et forræderi mot folket.

En kabal av interesserer intrigerer for å skape en situasjon der en ny folkeavstemning synes å være den logiske konklusjon. May gjorde det klart at det vil hun ikke være med på.

She told parliament she could not take a “no-deal” Brexit off the table as there was no approved alternative, and the EU would be unlikely to postpone Britain’s exit date – determined by the “Article 50” withdrawal notice – without an exit plan.

“No-deal will only be taken off the table by either revoking Article 50, which turns back the results of the referendum – the government will not do that – or by having a deal, and that is what we are trying to work out,” May said.

She said another referendum would strengthen the hand of those seeking to break up the United Kingdom and could damage social cohesion by undermining faith in democracy.

May har ikke fått godkjent avtalen, men hun vil heller ikke kaste inn håndkleet. Hun er sta og de som venter på å annulere Brexit kan ha gjort opp regning uten vert.
