- Theresa May to sign an agreement with Labor
- Tory MPs threaten to oust Mrs. May if compromise deal holds
- Senior Minister says it’s difficult to support any deal Labor would support
Theresa May, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party is at a crossroad between signing an agreement with Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labor Party and listening to the threats of Tory MPs that she will be ousted if she goes ahead to ally with Labor, according to Express.co.uk’s report on May 7, 2019.
Theresa May Intends to Sign an Agreement with Jeremy Corbyn
Per the report, Theresa May intends to sign an agreement with Jeremy Corbyn on May 7, 2019. The agreement will take away the need to send new MEPs to the European Parliament which is in line with Labour’s demand for a post-Brexit customs union with the EU.
However, Tory MPs and even rivals waiting to succeed Mrs. May have threatened that if she takes the step to make the compromise deal with Labour, she will be “gone very quickly.”
A senior minister, for instance, who made comments hinted that people are waiting to see what the deal is and if it happens, then it could trigger a leadership election that will help in deciding the Prime Minister’s future.
Difficulty in Support Any Deal Labour Supports
The senior minister also said it would be difficult to support any deal that Labour supports since there is a conflict of interest. While Labour wants full and permanent customs union, MPs had made a manifesto pledge to leave the customs union.
“Despite what everyone has said about the local election results being bad for Labour, I’m not convinced that Brexit is as much of an issue for Labour with their voters as it is for us,” the senior minister added.
Measures Taken to Force Theresa May to Leave Her Office
Furthermore, steps are being taken that could possibly lead to the Prime Minister’s replacement in office. These are believed to mount more pressure on Mrs. May to quit her position.
An instance is the case of Andrew Sharpe, chairman of the grassroots National Conservative Convention who will reveal an Extraordinary General Meeting where an unprecedented confidence vote in the Prime Minister will be decided upon by 800 members on June 15, 2019.
Similarly, Sir Graham Brady, the chairman of the 1922 Committee of backbench Tory will meet with Mrs. May in a bid to pose the decision of choosing between when she will leave her office or have the Conservative Party decide on her behalf.
Blockchain Reporter on May 6, 2019, also informed of Theresa May’s appeal to Jeremy Corbyn to work with her in order to reach a compromise deal which could help the country to leave the European Union (EU.)
