Theresa May's Brexit Message Angers Lawmakers On Both Sides
According to Reuters, If British Prime Minister Theresa May hoped a televised address late on Wednesday would help persuade wavering lawmakers to support her Brexit deal, it appears to have backfired, instead alienating the very people she needs to win over.
On Thursday, lawmakers lined up to attack the statement in which May blamed parliament for the need to seek a delay to Britain’s March 29 European Union exit.
They branded it dangerous, reckless, toxic and irresponsible.
In a televised statement from her Downing Street office, May said, “Of this I am absolutely sure: you the public have had enough.
You are tired of the infighting.
You are tired of the political games and the arcane procedural rows.”
May’s statement succeeded in uniting both pro-Brexit and pro-EU lawmakers - against her.
