BRITAIN: MPs To Vote On Second Brexit Referendum

The Guardian reports:

Theresa May has offered MPs votes on a second referendum and a temporary customs union in her last attempt to get a Brexit deal through parliament. Amid widespread expectation that the withdrawal agreement bill will be heavily defeated early next month, and reports of serious rows in cabinet, the prime minister used a hastily arranged speech to warn of serious political disruption if Brexit is not delivered.

Extending the deadlock for further months “risks opening the door to a nightmare future of permanently polarised politics”, she told an audience in central London. “Look around the world and consider the health of liberal democratic politics. And look across the United Kingdom and consider the impact of failing to deliver on the clear instruction of the British people in a lawful referendum.”
