Theresa May has said if her deal fails ‘we may never leave’ EU in an impassioned speech just weeks away from Brexit.
The Prime Minister said the Commons would face “a crucial choice” over “whether to back the Brexit deal or to reject it.”
She said: “Back it and the UK will leave the European Union. Reject it and no one knows what will happen.”
Talking in Grimsby she told an audience that now is the moment “to get this done” and for parliament to “come together” and back her deal.
She said: “We have a responsibility to deliver to this country the Brexit which people voted for.
“We may not leave the EU for many months, we may leave without the protections that the deal provides. We may never leave at all.”
Theresa May’s speech in Grimsby has a “that’s yer lot” feel to it. She says she has negotiated “the very best deal I could” and tells MPs to back it. They will rightly ask: is this it?— Dan Bloom (@danbloom1) March 8, 2019

Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
