The U.K.’s former Prime Minister Gordon Brown told CNBC that he doesn’t expect a closely-watched Brexit vote on Tuesday to go in the government’s favor.
“I don’t think she’s going to win it,” Brown told CNBC on Monday, a day before British lawmakers were due to vote on Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal to leave the European Union.
May’s “Withdrawal Agreement” faces deep opposition within the parliament and if her blueprint gets shot down, the consequences could be dire. Several potential scenarios could unfold: May’s government could collapse; the U.K. could face a disorderly exit; a second referendum could happen; or the entire Brexit process may get scrapped altogether.
According to Brown, May could even try for another vote in the near future.
