UK PM May and opposition leader agree to TV debate over Brexit

UK PM May and opposition leader agree to TV debate over Brexit

And Plaid Cymru's leader Adam Price tweeted: "People deserve the opportunity to hear from all the different voices on the biggest decision we will make for generations".

May has warned sceptical members of parliament that if they reject the deal the world's fifth largest economy will either leave without an agreement or Brexit could be delayed or even reversed.

The row was sparked by the publication of Government analysis that modelled the PM's deal against remaining inside the European Union, indicating the United Kingdom would take a 3.9 per cent cut to GDP over the next 15 years under Theresa May's agreement.

The Labour leader said "ploughing on" with a deal opposed by the public and MPs was an "act of national self-harm".

The Prime Minister laughed when she was asked whether she thought she could win a ratings battle with I'm A Celebrity...

"What I think is important is that people are able to see the issues around this plan".

She said: "Nothing has been settled in terms of when the debate will take place but I think this is an important moment for our country and it is right that we treat it with the seriousness it deserves".

"I am willing to stand up and explain why I think it is the best possible deal available for the United Kingdom", she told The Sun.

"Instead of threatening this House with a no-deal scenario of a no-Brexit scenario, the Prime Minister now needs to prepare a plan B".

"I think we have to take a look at, seriously, whether or not the United Kingdom is allowed to trade. I believe in a better way forward". "It would open the door to more division and more uncertainty, with all the risks that will entail".

But many Conservatives object to the so-called "Irish backstop" section of Mrs May's deal, because they argue it will tie Britain indefinitely to European Union tariffs, undermining the country's ability to strike free trade deals with allies around the world such as the United States.

She said she would prove: "I have got a plan, he hasn't got a plan".

The PM said Sunday's agreement honoured the 2016 referendum vote and maintained a close partnership with the EU.

SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford had earlier attacked Mrs May over the comments, calling them a "slur" and telling the Commons the Brexit deal "blatantly disregards the rights that we will all lose to live and work in Europe".

"When you negotiate, neither side gets 100% of what they want, it is about compromising but you have to be clear about what your vital interests are, and we have protected those vital interests and that includes protecting the interests of the people of Northern Ireland".
