As PM Theresa May heads to Brussels today to meet EU officials and finalise the blueprint on Brexit deal, work and pensions minister Amber Rudd has said that parliament will not support a ‘no-deal’ Brexit.
Rudd, a former interior minister who returned to government after cabinet resignations over May’s deal last week, urged lawmakers to back the deal.
Rudd told the BBC: “There isn’t a majority in the House of Commons to allow that to take place. I think the likelihood is, despite what people say, that the withdrawal agreement will get through.
“If the agreement does not pass, “anything could happen,” she said, adding: “The Brexiteers may lose their Brexit.”
Rudd also cast doubt on May’s plans to seal the Brexit deal on Sunday, saying that there are still obstacles in the way.
