May Tweaks Brexit Deal to Win Support 05/21 06:14
LONDON (AP) -- The British government is discussing how to tweak its
proposed European Union divorce terms in a last-ditch attempt to get
Parliament's backing for Prime Minister Theresa May's deal with the bloc.
The Cabinet is meeting Tuesday to work out details of what May has called a
"bold offer" to win support for her Brexit agreement. But ministers are divided
and look unlikely to support the kind of sweeping changes that could change
The divorce deal has been rejected three times by Parliament. May says she
will try again in early June by asking lawmakers to vote on a withdrawal
agreement bill implementing the departure terms.
Labour foreign affairs spokeswoman, Emily Thornberry, said the attempt was
doomed and was May's "own political version of the last rites."
