And without such guarantees will Brexitavtalet not go through in the house of commons, judge May. In the last week she drew the short notice to back the planned vote on the agreement. The confusion is now big in London about how to proceed, as planned, be able to leave the EU in an orderly fashion on march 29 next year.

highlight a new referendum as an alternative. One of them is former prime minister Tony Blair from the socialist Labour party.

– Now the ball is in parliament and it must decide one of the options. Capable; of it, should the decision go back to the people, " he says.

In an interview in The Times, " says Jo Johnson, who wants the country stays in the EU, the interest to hold a second referendum has increased in the circle around Theresa May.

– She needs a way back to reality and I believe that a referendum may be it, " he believes.

. In a speech in parliament on Monday she said that a referendum would divide the country and tear up the new wounds between the residents.

" Let us not break the trust we have received from the british people by trying to keep a new referendum, said Theresa May.

She announced instead that members should get to vote on her contract the week starting 14 January.

"Probably not, but it is clearly more likely now than it was before," says Tony Travers.

He fears that strong political forces, he calls them poisonous, would be released to solve the case of a new referendum. Tony Travers exemplifies how the voters now identify themselves more as ”leaver” (want to leave the EU) or the ”remainers” (want to stay in the EU) than the associated conservative Tories or the Labour party.

" No one really knows what the effect of no agreement becomes. Furthermore, it appears that the people be ready to become poorer only we are allowed to leave the EU. It's like when the british empire broke down, and we said to the countries in Africa that they would be poorer if they broke away. They said, ”fine, we will be free to the poor and thank you so much”.

– the Most likely scenario is that there will be some kind of orderly exit from the EU or boost the whole process up, " says professor Travers.
