BREXIT AGREEMENT: BRITISH PARLIAMENT HAS THE LAST WORD

London / The British prime minister, Theresa May, has obtained the approval of the European leaders to the agreement of the “brexit”, an important step in the way to the withdrawal from the European Union (EU) that, nevertheless, is marred by the difficult situation that now arises in the British Parliament.

After the Twenty-seven have supported the pact of withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the community block and of avoiding the reserves of Spain with respect to Gibraltar, May must put to vote the agreement in the House of Commons.

A vote that supposes the following great challenge for the “premier”, who haven’t support of almost one hundred of her deputies from the Conservative Party nor of the ten parliamentarians from the Nothern Ireland Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), partners of her Government in minority.

DUP leader Arlene Foster has said that her party will vote in favour of the agreement “under no circumstances” because, in her opinion, it endangers the territorial integrity of the United Kingdom and gives Northern Ireland a status different from the rest from the country.

A refusal to which has also been added the head of the British opposition, the Labor Jeremy Corbyn, who has described the agreement as “bad” for the country and has argued that Labor will vote against.

Corbyn doesn’t want a way out without an agreement, but to renegotiate a “sensible” pact that includes “a permanent customs union, a strong single market that guarantees the rights of workers and consumers”.

But renegotiating an agreement does not seem a very viable option, after the president of the European Commission (EC), Jean-Claude Juncker, warned that the pact approved this Sunday is “the only possible”.

Something that May has ratified from Brussels, stating that, “if people think that somehow another negotiation can be made, this is not the case”.

The prime minister is aware that it is not easy to get the support she needs in the Westminster Parliament, so she has already begun to campaign to persuade the legislators to vote in favour of the agreement.
