"If you want the Brexit , brings him to you, and that's what this Deal," said May of the "Mail on Sunday". The leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbyn'm just waiting for it to force new elections. A ' no ' to the Deal would bring major uncertainties. There is also the danger that Britain not leave the EU, then it would.
Reports of a postponement of the vote in the lower house contradicted Downing Street. "The vote will take place on Tuesday," said a government spokeswoman for the German news Agency DPA.

The "Iron Lady" was several times pointedly her purse on the table.
now, What happens if the Brexit-agreement in the Parliament? Various possibilities are conceivable: they range from a second round of election in Parliament of a disorderly exit the EU, or for new elections to a second Referendum. Brexit-Minister Steve Barclay wrote in the "Telegraph" that the government is "all scenarios" prepare - the-Brexit Deal is the best Option.
The British labour Minister Amber Rudd said on Saturday in public for the Norway-Plus model as a "Plan B" that could get cross-party majority. In this model, the UK would remain in the European internal market and the customs Union. Norway is a member of the European economic area (EEA), but not in the EU. The UK could tap into a customs Union with Brussels - so, Norway plus.
Timmermans warns of Brexit
