UK Should Not Hope for Better Deal says PM May

Theresa May has said the UK should not hope for a “better deal” from the EU if MPs reject her Brexit agreement.

She told a BBC phone-in that there would be just “more division and uncertainty” if Parliament voted against the agreement next month.



But she declined to say whether the UK would be better off outside the EU, saying only it would be “different”.

A summit of EU leaders to sign off the deal will go ahead on Sunday despite “unresolved” issues over Gibraltar.

Spain is seeking written assurances from the UK that it will be directly consulted over its future trade negotiations with the EU which relate to Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory.

Its prime minister Pedro Sanchez has said he won’t decide whether to attend Sunday’s summit until these are provided.
