Twitteratis see the funny side as PM postpones crucial Brexit vote

0

Prime Minister Theresa May has just announced that she has decided to postpone a key parliamentary vote on the Brexit deal tomorrow saying there is “widespread and deep concern” over Irish border backstop.

This would result in defeat for the deal, she said, were MPs to vote on it. Therefore, May added that the government has made the decision to defer the vote.

The move throws the UK’s divorce plan from the European Union up in the air. Twitter, however, is flooded with hilarious tweets taking a dig at the government and the current Brexit fiasco:

The announcement comes just hours after Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn declared that Britain no longer had “a functioning government”.

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has also accused the British government of “pathetic cowardice” by taking this decision.

“This is a watershed moment and an act of pathetic cowardice by a Tory (Conservative) government which has run out of road and is now collapsing into utter chaos,” Sturgeon said in a statement.
