Opposition leaders have joined forces to accuse Theresa May of showing contempt ofParliament.
Theresa May is calling off the vote on her Brexit deal in the face of what had been expected to be a significant defeat at the hands of rebel MPs.
Lord Peter Lilley, a former Deputy Leader of the Conservative Party, has said that if the UK left the European Union without a deal, “we won’t be crashing out, we will be cashing in.”
Former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab said that Theresa May should reconsider the terms of the deal if it's defeated in parliament, and that a rebellion was a 'risk'
Former Communications Director for Downing Street, Katie Perrior has said that Parliament knew that when it came to the final deal “there would be some bloodshed”.
