Theresa May has pleaded with MPs to consider the interests of the country and the importance of delivering Brexit as she gave herself two weeks to try to persuade 89 hostile Tory backbenchers to support her final deal.
The Prime Minister has warned that Britain would be thrust into the unknown if parliament rejects the Brexit deal she has negotiated with the European Union, as members of parliament from all sides lined up to criticise the agreement.
Chairman of the International Trade for the North East England Chamber of Commerce Richard Swart says the UK is entering crunch time over the next two weeks.
And all options could happen, so that means the so-called no Brexit, that means a no deal Brexit which is highly unlikely and that means also the prime minister's plan as presented in the last few days.— Richard Swart, Chairman of the International Trade for the North East England Chamber of Commerce
