The British PM May has set the date for yet another showdown with Parliament in the first week of June, when lawmakers will vote on legislation to implement her Brexit deal. The vote is coming in hot on the heels of the European elections where her conservative party is set for a defeat. She is also setting the date for a parliamentary vote without having reached a Brexit agreement with the labour party.

    According to CNN, British Prime Minister Theresa May pledged to give parliament a second referendum vote, if they support her Brexit deal. The offer has been seen as a last-ditch effort for PM May to finalize the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union. But it is among a growing number of concessions she has given lawmakers in parliament to garner support for the Withdrawal Agreement Bill. May's latest concessions include pledges on workers' rights, environmental provisions, and a temporary customs arrangement with the EU. The withdrawal agreement has been scheduled for a vote in the House of Commons during the first week of June, which will mark the fourth vote by parliament on PM May's Brexit deal.

  • What Do The British MP's Want?

    According to CNN, after a series of bruising defeats last month, it seems Theresa May is starting the New Year continuing to be thwarted by a parliament trying to exert its sovereignty. On Tuesday evening, members of Parliament voted in favor of preventing the UK exiting the European Union without a deal. On Wednesday, MPs voted to give the Prime Minister just three days to come up with an alternative plan if, as expected, her own carefully negotiated deal, is rejected by the Commons next week. And despite all of the MP’s efforts, we are no closer to discovering what the MP’s actually want.

  • ‘Brexit’ Only Has A ’50-50’ Chance Of Happening?

    According to senior UK politician Liam Fox, Brexit has only a "50-50" chance of happening if Theresa May's current deal is turned down by members of parliament.
