The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, has called on British parliamentarians “pragmatism” to back their plan for the ‘Brexit’ after the guarantees offered the day before by the president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker.
“Responsible politics involves pragmatism, it is about balancing risks and rewards,” the head of the British Government assured, in an appearance before the House of Commons hours of the vote on her agreement for the ‘Brexit’.
May has called on the British deputies to ask themselves if they want to “become the perfect enemy of the good” in the vote called for this Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. (8:00 p.m. Spanish time).
The prime minister has appeared before the Parliament doing flag of which the guarantees agreed the eve with Juncker reduce the “risk” of which the United Kingdom finishes “caught” in the contingency plan of the border between the Ulster and Ireland.
In this regard, May said he believes “deeply” that “there is no evidence” that the British people may have “changed their minds” regarding the process of leaving the European Union.
As for the scenario that would open if his plan is rejected by the Commons on Tuesday, May said that the deputies will then have to vote on the stage of a Brexit without agreement or on the postponement of the entry into force of the process. “In the long term we could achieve success with Brexit but there would be a significant economic impact in the short term,” he predicted.
In his opinion, a postponement of the Brexit “without a plan” would put investments and jobs at risk and “would not change the debate”. “It would simply pass control to the European Union,” said the head of the British Government.
