Tory MPs warn May: Brexit vote must be put on hold – The Times
Monday, 11 March 2019 The UK Times carried a gated story on Monday, citing that senior Conservative MPs have called on the UK PM Theresa May to pull tomorrow’s meaningful vote on her Brexit deal if she fails to secure significant concessions from Brussels over the weekend.**
“Leading Tories in the Commons warned that the prime minister could face another three-figure defeat if she went ahead with her plan.
They have advised her to halt the vote and replace it with a motion setting out the kind of Brexit deal that would be acceptable to Tory MPs to keep the party together and put pressure on Brussels.”
A few months ago some were predicting the Conservative party would be thrown into civil war by the Brexit vote. Perhaps it would even have to split. The FT's Henry Mance reports from the Tory party conference about why that has not happened.
