Theresa May Defends Brexit Plan Amid Day of Cabinet Chaos

Theresa May Defends Brexit Plan Amid Day of Cabinet Chaosby 👨‍💻 Simon Baxendale

The 15th of November 2018 will likely go down in British political history for a number of reasons, and it will likely remain a day etched into the Conservative Party’s collective memory for some time to come. Following the reveal that Prime Minister Theresa May had managed to secure Cabinet approval for her Brexit proposal, the UK leader was met with a wave of resignations the day after. Among them were Dominic Raab, the Brexit Minister who had been appointed after David Davis had previously resigned over Brexit deal concerns.

May was also threatened by the possibility of there being a vote of no confidence in her leadership. Led by Conservative rebels such as Jacob Rees-Mogg, such an action will require a certain number of signatures and MPs agreeing that May cannot feasibly continue to run the UK government – and if the majority of MPs agree that this is the case, the UK could face either a whole new Prime Minister in the near future, or yet another General Election.

May, meanwhile, has continued to shoulder the burden of Brexit by appearing before a press conference to confirm that it was her intention to see the process through to the end. Despite facing increasing calls to resign, the Prime Minister has once again avowed to be the leader to see the UK’s divorce from the European Union through to the end. The end of March 2019 is still earmarked as the date when Brexit will officially start to take effect, though if a deal is agreed upon, UK citizens will witness little change until the end of an extended transition period by the end of 2020.

However, it will remain to be seen whether or not a deal will be agreed upon by MPs and the EU. It was hoped that a deal would be worked out by the end of November to allow for administration to be completed ahead of the spring divorce. However, British Parliament will still need to agree upon the plan that May ultimately works out with the EU – and if this is shot down, two options remain. No deal, or no Brexit – and with May reportedly having suggested that the latter is in fact a scenario which remains on the table, we could well be in for a fairly interesting few months ahead with regard to the UK’s political future.
