LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal to leave the European Union will be voted down in parliament, her former Brexit minister said on Friday, adding that alternative stopgap agreements could help provide a bridge in a no-deal scenario.

“We will I think inevitably see parliament vote this deal down, and then I think some of those other alternatives will need to come into play,” Raab told BBC radio.
