British Prime Minister Theresa May has warned MPs if they reject her deal to leave the European Union, they risk either leaving without a deal or not leaving at all.
British parliamentarians are set to vote on the government’s deal on Tuesday, after an earlier attempt to gain approval in December was postponed because it faced almost certain defeat.
The Conservative leader has so far failed to placate opposing factions within the United Kingdom Parliament and her own party.
Hardline MPs want a complete break with the EU, or a hard Brexit, while others want either another referendum or a soft break with the EU that maintains key economic and policy structures, such as the common Customs Union and the Single Market.
Speaking at a factory in the northern city of Stoke-on-Trent today, May said she was looking to “close the debate” on Brexit.
