LONDON (Reuters) - Labour Party said on Sunday that Prime Minister Theresa May’s decision to delay a meaningful vote on her Brexit deal was a reckless attempt to force lawmakers to choose between her deal and a disorderly no-deal exit.
“This decision to further delay the meaningful vote is the height of irresponsibility,” Labour’s Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said after May told reporters she would give parliament a vote on her deal by March 12.
“Theresa May is recklessly running down the clock in a desperate attempt to force MPs to choose between her deal and no deal,” he said. “Parliament cannot stand by and allow this happen.”
