May not ruling out second MPs' vote BBC Online

General Election 2015 campaign – April 8th

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has accepted Theresa May's challenge of a TV Brexit debate on the BBC - but only if it is the two leaders head-to-head.

Immigration was a major issue in the 2016 vote to leave the European Union and May has promised to end the free movement of EU citizens to live in Britain.

She said: "I am asking every MP to think about delivering on the Brexit vote, doing it in a way that's in the national interest, doing it in a way that's in the interests of their constituents because it protects the jobs and livelihoods of their constituents". "It's a People's Vote, with the option of keeping the best deal we now have as a member of the European Union".

Prime Minister Theresa May gives evidence before the Liaison Committee on matters relating to Brexit at Portcullis House in London, Thursday, Nov. 29, 2018.

Mrs May said that separate analyses produced by Whitehall officials and the Bank of England this week each showed that the agreement she reached in Brussels is "the best deal that honours the result of the referendum".

Speaking to reporters on her flight to the G20 summit in Argentina, Mrs May made clear she has not given up hope of getting her Brexit deal through Parliament, despite indications she is heading for defeat by a substantial margin in the crunch vote on December 11.

However, fellow Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg has written in the Daily Telegraph of an effort to "frighten and to gull (people) into acquiescing to a non-Brexit Brexit".

"Like many MPs he has recognised the huge shortcomings of the Prime Minister's deal and the need to find an alternative path forward for Britain", she said.

He replied: "I don't see why it should". But he is one of a growing number of MPs from all parties who have come to the view that the UK's March 29 date of exit from the European Union should be postponed, so that the British people have the opportunity, now that they know more about the realities of leaving the European Union, to decide whether Brexit is still what they want.

May's comments came after lawmakers proposed an amendment that could stop Brexit if Parliament rejects her agreement.

"If this deal is rejected in the Commons we are left with, as was already stressed a few weeks ago by Prime Minister May, an alternative: no deal or no Brexit at all".

But in a tweet on its news press feed, it said: "We've just heard the Prime Minister has accepted the BBC's offer to take part in a debate on the Brexit deal on Sunday December 9".

May did not directly engage with Abe's warning, saying her negotiated deal was "a good deal for businesses in the United Kingdom, including the many Japanese companies who have made significant investment into the United Kingdom and who will be able to continue on the basis of our deal to trade well with the European Union". "In the lead up to what is a crucial vote, you will see more of that".

"We will be doing plenty of engagement in the coming days with colleagues to set out the merits and virtues of our case", a senior source in her Conservative Party said.
