Theresa May, current prime minister of the United Kingdom, announced in her cabinet meeting that she would once again introduce the Brexit referendum in the parliament. This action would be her last try to get the United Kingdom to withdraw from the European Union. The history of this Referendum has not been a successful one as the members of the parliament have voted against it the past three times. She also highlighted the need for a new referendum and the resulting benefits from the referendum. The referendum generally talks about her deal with the Brussels to have the country out of the European Union.
What is the reason for a new referendum for the Brexit issue?
In her speech, the prime minister specifies the need and requests of few people to take another consideration on the Brexit Issue. The prime minister has specified that the limitations of the last referendum for the Brexit issue will be discussed and she has suggested numerous changes in the referendum which focus on making everyone believe that her decision is in the interest of the public and how it can benefit the country.
What important changes are included in the new referendum?
The British Prime Minister makes a ten point offer that in her opinion, would do justice to the people of the United Kingdom. She believes that this new deal would be in the interest of the UK workers and would free the country from the terms of the European Union and make the trade sector prosper. She believes that this deal is very important to maintain democracy in the country and not understanding the need for this deal would have serious effects on the democracy of the country. Also, according to this referendum, the parliament would exercise the decision of the withdrawal from the European Union.
The Prime Minister is well aware of the break of the parliament in the summer and she emphasizes on the urgency of the referendum so that the issues can be resolved and a clear decision is taken on October 31, the date of the Brexit decision.
What are the possible results of this declaration?
The declaration of a new referendum by the prime minister has raised many questions in the minds of many members of the parliament regarding her leadership. Some of the reports say that the Prime Minister can end up losing the support of many members of the parliament, even those who were in support before during the first two times the referendum was put in the parliament. They seem to be backing up now because they perceive the deal as even worse.
Many members of the parliament have straight away rejected the new idea of having another referendum about this deal. The members of the parliament together in majority want to say clear No to the deal, considering it dangerous and against the interest of the people of the United Kingdom.
