As MPs approach the middle of their two week Christmas recess, the Brexit commentary rumbles on.
In an interview with the Independent, Jeremy Corbyn has called for an end to the Christmas recess pressuring Theresa May to recall parliament early so that a vote on the Brexit deal can take place as soon as possible in the New Year. This is a request that Theresa May does not appear to be entertaining.
The current timetable shows the House of Commons reconvening on 7 January 2019 with a vote on the proposed Brexit deal taking place in the week commencing 14 January 2019.
The commentary from Corbyn sits amidst political party Renew campaigning to overturn the EU referendum over two years after the vote took place.
This continues to be a tumultuous time for Theresa May as we eagerly anticipate the outcome of the vote on May’s Brexit deal which will shape the dialogue of British politics over the coming months.
Theresa May also faces moves by the International Trade Committee, chaired by Angus MacNeil, insisting that MPs have a vote on each of the many trade deals which will have to be negotiated after Brexit.
