PM Theresa May to Reveal Brexit Plan in New Speech


Theresa May is scheduled to deliver a significant new speech that will set out a roadmap for withdrawing from the European Union where a plan for Brexit is due to be revealed in more detail.

According to reports, the British Prime Minister is set to outline the future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union in the coming weeks, with some senior ministers also anticipated to make speeches that are setting out the “road to Brexit.”

The ministers will also meet with Prime Minister Theresa May at Chequers, her country residence, for an “away day” wherein efforts will be executed to gather together the top MPs who are divided over Brexit and determine exactly how the United Kingdom should leave the European Union.

According to the BBC, Brexit secretary David Davis, Foreign secretary Boris Johnson, cabinet office minister David Lidington, and international trade secretary Liam Fox are expected to make some speeches. However, home secretary Amber Rudd and chancellor Philip Hammond are not.

Time is running out with Michel Barnier, the chief negotiator of the European Union, giving a warning last Friday that a deal regarding a transition period is yet to be agreed upon and that “substantial” disagreements continue.

The said warning comes as a new poll reveals that the public is not clear on the position of the government. A poll that was initiated by the BMG Research for the Independent on Sunday discovered that a majority of Britons or about three-quarters do not know what the government of the United Kingdom is asking for in the negotiations.
