Standing firm on her decision, British Prime Minister Theresa May is not likely to compromise with Brussels for her Brexit plans. She was determined for not “giving in” to those who are eager to call for a second referendum on the withdrawal agreement.
Two months ago, the EU and Britain were into a deal of ending over 40 years of union. May is striving to display her business-friendly Brexit policies amid her party and the entire country. This decision will let Britain sustain in the free-trade zone along with the EU for manufactured and agricultural goods. However, the Brexit supporters say that fragments of Britain’s economy would be subjected to the rules effected in Brussels.
A Chequers Plan has been tentatively implemented by the EU which is specifically designed in order to safeguard cross-border trade with a little possibility of negotiations in it.
Prime Minister May, in a newspaper, articulated: “I will not be pushed into accepting compromises on the Chequers proposals that are not in our national interest.” She added, “The coming months will be critical in shaping the future of our country and I am clear about my mission.”
The news caught everyone’s eyes when two of May’s senior lawmakers, Boris Johnson and David Davis, resigned as Foreign Secretary and Brexit Secretary respectively. Dissenting her plan, they believed that it is not fair for those millions of people who, in the 2016 referendum, decided to vote for leaving the EU.
Davis said, “You’re not going to turn around said to parliament. Oh, I agreed this, but that wasn’t in the national interest, are you?”
