If the government survives a vote of no confidence, Labor could call for a second referendum on remaining in the European Union, said Brexit shadow secretary Keir Starmer on Sunday.
Now, after the G20 talks, May has only one week left to convince dissenting MPs to pass the bill. A feat agreed by Brexit Environment Minister Michael Gove will be "challenging."
Gove told the BBC Sunday that if the ministers did not pass the bill, "the alternatives are not a deal or Brexit."
UK Attorney General Geoffrey Cox will brief the legislature on Monday, but Downing Street is trying to avoid publishing the full council, even though he opposed pledging a lower house vote last month. The government argues that Cox's briefing will be enough, but Starmer said, "If they do not produce it tomorrow, we will launch an abuse trial, and this will be a collision course between government and parliament."
"I accept that it is extraordinary to have revealed this, it has happened in the past, but it is extraordinary," he added. "That's why we had a debate in Parliament to say: is this the case where it is so extraordinary that it is revealed?"
This may put them in a difficult position when they tried to get their bill for the conservative party, while they might have to compromise on the so-called "backstop" position in Northern Ireland, which they had in the eyes of the people pro-Brexit MPs.
Such a situation would leave the UK essentially both inside and outside the EU, in accordance with all EU rules and regulations, but not to influence them. This would also block the most ambitious hardliner post-Brexit policy in the May Party, many of whom assume that the 201
In the increasingly probable case of May losing the voice of next week, Labor is likely to continue attacking It is an opportunity to overthrow its government – which is currently suffering from an unstable alliance with the right-wing Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) ), which is expected to vote against the agreement.
"It obviously depends on what actually happens in nine days, it depends on the reaction, but if, after two years of negotiation, it has lost a voice of that importance, then it is true that it is a parliamentary election, but The Convention has always been the case for the Temporary Parliaments Act, and if a government loses a so-called confidence vote – something of such importance – that government must go, "Starmer said.
Under the Law on Parliament with Temporary Parliaments 2011, the government theoretically has a five-year term, but a vote of no-confidence or two-thirds of subordinates' voting rights may still trigger parliamentary elections, leading to it being extremely difficult for the government of the day to fend off an election if the legislature wants to go to the voters.
"If this is not the case, then of course we need to move on to other options, such as a public vote, because after going through the first two options, we would have to look at what happens then," Starmer said.
Such a situation, while increasing the pressure on the May administration, would probably be preferable to the Prime Minister, who had previously tried to make Labor unreliable for Brexit, and allowed the Eurosceptics' support throughout the policy to support spectrum.
