Report: Theresa May considers delay to Brexit vote

Some of Theresa May’s aides and ministers expect her to announce on Monday she’s delaying Tuesday’s House of Commons vote on her Brexit deal because she’s planning to convince European Union leaders meeting in Brussels to relax the terms of the agreement, the Sunday Times reported.

With the odds stacked against May in Parliament and EU ministers repeatedly saying there’s no Plan B, May could well be out of options. Some of her more loyal ministers are already planning for a new referendum, the newspaper said.

Whitehall officials have been discussing two versions of a potential new vote, the report said. One features a straight choice between May’s deal and staying in the bloc. The second option would ask voters to choose between leaving the EU and remaining in it, but with a supplementary question if the Leave camp wins — would they prefer the existing deal or a Brexit on WTO terms?
