The Associated Press reports:
Prime Minister Theresa May tried to pressure U.K. lawmakers Friday to support her Brexit deal, warning that Britain may never leave the European Union if they vote down the agreement next week.
Battling to stave off a second defeat for the unpopular deal, May also implored the EU to help her make “one more push” to get the agreement through a skeptical Parliament. British lawmakers are due to vote for a second time Tuesday on the deal, which they overwhelmingly rejected in January.
If Parliament throws out the deal again, lawmakers will vote on whether to leave the EU without an agreement — an idea likely to be rejected — or to ask the EU to delay Brexit beyond the scheduled March 29 departure date.
MPs face a “crucial choice”
Back the deal and the UK will leave the EU, reject it and “no one knows what will happen… we may never leave at all”

Theresa May is now threatening Brexiteers that we “may never leave at all” if her pathetic deal is voted down next week.
Considering her disastrous deal is NOT Brexit and the worst of all worlds, voting it down is a risk Leave MPs must take.https://t.co/03VMJN1SUX
