Theresa May is continuing in her efforts to sell her draft Brexit withdrawal agreement, with her major selling point being that it will stop EU migrants “jumping the queue”.
Her major reference is that Europeans will no longer be prioritised over “engineers of Sydney or software developers from Delhi”, in what would seem to be an attempt to appeal to both Remain and Leave factions.
Instead of a system based on where a person is from, we will have one that is built around the talents and skills a person has to offer.
The reveal of her 585-page long withdrawal agreement was met with mass criticism, and has caused Conservative MPs to continue to either press for late changes to this deal, or outright resign. This deal is set to be finalised at an EU summit this weekend.
May has said that she is not going to reopen discussions with Brussels on this agreement, stating that “the core elements of that deal are already in place”. She instead hopes to build a framework for any future trade relationships in Brussels before signing off the deal.
It is still up in air as to whether or not the number of Conservative MPs who have submitted letters of no-confidence in Theresa May will reach 48, the number required to trigger a vote on her leadership.
