Theresa May Tries To Save Brexit Deal

Theresa May is struggling to stave off a landslide defeat of her Brexit deal in parliament next week. In a last ditch bid to save her deal she offers MPs a vote on the controversial Brexit 'backstop'. The backstop would keep Britain locked to EU trade and customs rules if it fails to secure an alternative deal with the EU at the end of the tw0-year transition. May's offer would allow MPs to direct her to extend the transition period instead. LONDON — Theresa May will offer MPs a vote on whether to trigger the so-called Brexit backstop, as she struggles to avoid a humiliating parliamentary defeat next Tuesday.
