Support my Brexit or face no deal, U.K.’s May warns

Support my Brexit or face no deal, U.K.’s May warns”

Supporters of Brexit, who admit there may be some short term instability, say British ministers and business chiefs are spreading scare stories about the impact of a "no-deal" in an attempt to rally support behind May's plans.

May has repeatedly insisted her Brexit plan will ensure a free-flowing Irish Border after Brexit and not a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.

Writing in the Observer newspaper , Sadiq Khan, a Labour member, said hadn't thought he would back another national vote on Brexit.

Making reference to Boris Johnson's resignation as foreign secretary over the government's Brexit strategy - dubbed the Chequers plan - the London mayor said the debate had become more about Mr Johnson's aspirations to become prime minister "than what's good for the country".

But many business chiefs and investors fear politics could scupper an agreement, thrusting both the European Union and the United Kingdom into a "no-deal" Brexit that they say would weaken the West, panic financial markets and block the arteries of trade.

Under the European Union plan, goods could be tracked using barcodes on shipping containers under "trusted-trader" schemes administered by registered companies, the Times reported.

However the Prime Minister has said the counter-proposal to her Chequers plan is "still a hard border" and hers is the only way that does not "carve up the United Kingdom".

Former British foreign minister Boris Johnson has said the EU's fallback position for the border would mean Northern Ireland was "annexed" by Brussels.

"This is part of the de-dramatising process, Barnier is being creative in offering concessions in the text that seem to go the British way but in fact don't change the reality", one European Union diplomat said.

The intervention in favour of a second referendum from Khan, a senior member of Britain's opposition Labour Party, will put more pressure on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to also support the second referendum idea.

He says, "I felt it was interesting and troubling that he wants essentially to frustrate the vote that we had two and a half years ago".

"If the Brexit negotiations continue on this path they will end, I am afraid, in a spectacular political auto crash", Johnson wrote in the Daily Telegraph newspaper.

"(But) if there's not going to be a general election, the next best thing is for the British public to have a say on the outcome of the negotiations", he told the BBC's Andrew Marr.

But Labour frontbencher Barry Gardiner yesterday told Sky's Sophy Ridge a fresh referendum would give Theresa May a "lifeline".

"I think that the alternative to that will be not having a deal". Former Cabinet minister Theresa Villiers said: 'It is so undemocratic to ask people to vote again just because there is an elite establishment that does not like the answer they were given the first time'.
