Possible scenarios if Brexit deal gets rejected
Last week the European Union accepted UK’s Brexit plan. Now, is the Prime Minister Theresa May capable of convincing her Parliament to give the ok on the agreement. As far we know Theresa May has the acceptance of only 13 members of parliament. This can be translated as a probable defeat for the prime minister as they only need seven to vote against the government’s proposal. The projections are that Theresa May’s proposal will be blocked in a vote. Now, what actually will happen if the deal is defeated? First of all the UK should leave the European Union without a settlement on 29 March 2019, also when they reach that stage MPs cannot reverse the no-deal Brexit. Nevertheless, UK will have three weeks to propose various suggestions. For example, a second referendum will be the most probable of scenarios, or a negotiated no Deal, This is a situation where the UK would need a one year extension of the membership before leaving the EU – but would come at a price from European Union for a paid one-year expansion of the membership before going out of the EU.
