Theresa May Won't Say If Her Brexit Deal Is Better Than Staying In EU
Theresa May has repeatedly refused to say whether or not she believes that her Brexit deal will leave the country better off than if the UK had voted to stay in the EU.
Business Insider reports that a called on BBC 5 Live Friday asked May if she could "honestly say" that her deal would leave Britain better off than EU membership.
The prime minister responded that it is "different." She explained, "Actually, it's a different sort of environment and a different approach we will be taking to things.
It's less about whether or not we are in the European Union ... It is about what we do.
Our future is in our hands." May also refused to answer if she would resign if she loses the upcoming parliamentary vote on her deal.
She added, "I believe this is absolutely the right deal for the UK."
