U.K Parliament To Vote On Brexit This Tuesday. The Consensus Is That the Brexit Deal Will Be Voted Down

BBC: Theresa May says no Brexit more likely than no deal

Prime Minister Theresa May is making a last-ditch attempt to persuade MPs to back her Brexit deal as Tuesday's key Commons vote looms closer.

She will use a speech on Monday to warn that Parliament is more likely to block Brexit than let the UK leave with no deal.

Mrs May will add that trust in politics will suffer "catastrophic harm" if the referendum result is not implemented.

Labour has vowed to table a vote of no confidence if Mrs May loses.

Its leader Jeremy Corbyn said Labour would vote against the deal and would start moves to trigger a general election if it is voted down.

He told the BBC's Andrew Marr show: "We will table a motion of no confidence in the government at a time of our choosing, but it's going to be soon, don't worry about it."

WNU Editor: Prime Minister Theresa May had just one job .... and that is to do what a majority of people in the U.K. clearly voted for and wanted. Respect the Brexit vote, get a good deal if possible, and if not, leave the EU. It looks like she cannot even do that. Since the EU has already signalled that they can wait till July, I can see the British Prime Minister pushing for another delay. She should not. She should respect what the voters voted for in the referendum, let the Parliamentary vote happen, and hen go from there.
