‘Theresa May has made a mistake’: Theresa May’s gamble over Britain’s EU withdrawal
Theresa May is facing a challenge to her leadership as her government faces a challenge in the European Parliament over her plans to withdraw from the EU’s single market.
In a letter to her party, the European Conservatives and Reformists group, European Parliament President Martin Schulz warned that the “no deal” Brexit scenario could “lead to a period of uncertainty and uncertainty about the future of the EU” in the wake of May’s decision to trigger Article 50 in March.
“We are already seeing the consequences of that,” Schulz said.
“The UK government has now taken the unprecedented step of announcing it intends to leave the European Union without a deal, with no deal, which has caused enormous uncertainty, and led to a political backlash.”
In an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday, May said she would “not be able to get a deal” with the EU on trade or on migration, while warning that Britain would need to renegotiate its relationship with Brussels before Brexit could take place.
Theresa’s gamble is unlikely to work”Theresa must understand that the UK government’s decision will cause enormous uncertainty and uncertainness in the Brexit process,” Schuul said.
“The UK has to act as a good partner and not as a bad one.”
Theresa may be making a big mistake if she decides to remain in the EU.
But she has no choice because the EU will not agree to a deal with the UK on trade, immigration or immigration-related issues, and the UK’s departure would trigger divorce proceedings.
The EU will hold its Brexit negotiations in Brussels on July 29.
A Brexit that does not lead to a Brexit could also have a serious impact on Britain’s own economy, with a vote on a new trade deal with Brussels likely to take place soon.
The United Kingdom has said it will need a new agreement to avoid a “hard border” with Ireland, and a new financial settlement to secure an orderly transition to a new, post-Brexit trading relationship with the bloc.EU lawmakers will vote on the divorce bill on July 27.
The U.K. will need to make some concessions in the divorce talks, but the Brexiters hope that a deal can be reached in the meantime.
The European Parliament has been working on a bill to end the British government’s role in negotiating the terms of Britain’s withdrawal from the bloc, but its members have been unable to agree on what kind of exit agreement they would like to see.
and Ireland would like the U.S. to negotiate the exit agreement, but Britain would like EU countries to negotiate a new deal that could eventually be signed by Britain, Ireland and the European Economic Area (EEA) countries, which include Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Sweden.
Britain would need a “good deal” for it to be able join the EEA, Schuulz said, but not to join the single market or customs union, or to have a “close, friendly relationship” with other European countries.
The bill has been called the “British Bill” and will be debated on the floor of the Parliament next week.
