Theresa May has made a direct appeal to the British public to back her Brexit deal. When asked by a German reporter whether she shares Angela Merkel’s sadness about the UK leaving the EU? May replied, saying, ‘No’. But she said she ‘recognises why some people, in the EU and in the UK, do feel like that’. ‘We are leaving the EU but not leaving Europe, she said. Despite the increasingly bleak prospects for her deal passing the House of Commons next month in what she called ‘one of the most significant votes for many years’, May struck a defiant note.

    Leaving the EU is the BIGGGEST MISTAKE possible the NHS will collapse taxes rise to pay billions of pounds to leave the EU food prices will rise significantly my cousins have already been informed to provide official document in case of evidence that they should stay in this country. Is this really happening I'm terrified of what will happen to us and the fact that we voted frightens me more I'm so confused right now

    Atleast we won’t be affected by the Article 13

    Why would we want to be members of a "club" (EU) where we have NO say in the workings of that club? They can bring charges on us that we cannot appose bring laws to us that we have NO say in, and the leaders of said club are NOT EVEN elected.This is total madness to even consider, our way forward is clearly to leave the EU as fast as we can with NO more connection other than FAIR TRADE deals.The EU want to carve up OUR fishing waters for their "friends" and leave us the scraps off their plate, I don't think so, We can allow other country's to fish in OUR WATERS but only if they pay us for the privilege. They think they can use our off shore properties as bargaining chips AGAINST US, don't forget they are OUR PROPERTIES, not theirs to play with.Our PM insists on saying British armed forces will NOT be joining the EU army yet we already have our troops with EU badges on their uniforms, this has not been put to the British public.
    When will common sense step in? We need to be in charge of our own lives as all free people throughout the world are, big business manipulate our lives to a certain extent but that's our own stupid fault. We can choose to NOT purchase from them but we have NO choice with the EU, they want TOTAL CONTROL of us and I DONT THINK SO.Britain needs to unit as we did in the last war and not let anyone DIVIDE AND CONQUER US.
    If immigrants want to come here because of our welfare system STOP giving welfare untilthey have resided in BRITAIN for a minimum of FIVE YEARS, no voting rights until immigrants have resided for a minimum of TEN years and to get council housing they must go on council waiting lists like the rest of the population and wait their turn.

    Theresa Mary May (née Brasier; born 1 October 1956) is a British politician serving as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party since 2016.

    She served as Home Secretary from 2010 to 2016.

    May was first elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Maidenhead in 1997.

    Ideologically, she identifies herself as a one-nation conservative.

    May grew up in Oxfordshire and attended St Hugh's College, Oxford.

    From 1977 until 1983, she worked for the Bank of England, and from 1985 until 1997 at the Association for Payment Clearing Services, also serving as a councillor for Durnsford in Merton.

    After unsuccessful attempts to be elected to the House of Commons in 1992 and 1994, she was elected as the MP for Maidenhead in the 1997 general election.

    From 1999 to 2010, May held a number of roles in the Shadow Cabinets of William Hague, Iain Duncan Smith, Michael Howard, and David Cameron, including Shadow Transport Secretary and Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary.

    She was also Chairman of the Conservative Party from 2002 to 2003.

    After the formation of a coalition government following the 2010 general election, May was appointed Home Secretary and Minister for Women and Equalities, giving up the latter role in 2012.

    Reappointed after the Conservative victory in the 2015 general election, she went on to become the longest-serving Home Secretary in over 60 years.

    During her tenure she pursued reform of the Police Federation, implemented a harder line on drugs policy (including the banning of khat), oversaw the introduction of elected Police and Crime Commissioners, the deportation of Abu Qatada, the creation of the National Crime Agency and brought in additional restrictions on immigration.

    Following Cameron's resignation, May won a leadership election in July 2016, becoming the second female Prime Minister, following Margaret Thatcher.

    As Prime Minister, May began the process of withdrawing the UK from the European Union, triggering Article 50 in March 2017, then, the following month, announcing a snap general election in June, with the aim of strengthening her hand in Brexit negotiations.

    This resulted in a hung parliament, in which the number of Conservative seats fell from 330 to 317, despite the party winning their highest vote share since 1983, prompting her to broker a confidence and supply deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to support a minority government.

    May is currently orchestrating the Brexit negotiations with the European Union, adhering to the Chequers Agreement, agreed in 2018.

    You'll be all right, Theresa. Make sure your affairs are in order; your millions of pounds are stored safely elsewhere and that your husband's businesses are able to take advantage of this new economy.

    One day you'll get your book deal. Keep imagining the money you'll be able to make by floating around the globe giving speeches and advising foreign bankers. You'll be all right.

    Gibraltar voted 96% to remain in the EU.
    Scotland voted 60% to remain in the EU.
    Northern Ireland voted 56% to remain in the EU.
    Clearly, the 'UK' is not united on this point; however, England and Wales remain free to exit Gibraltar, Scotland, and Ireland.

    The british are smart for wanting to leave the e.u. This grand experiment in globalist socialism is a laughable failure.Again history proves socialism is a dead end,despite the fact that latinos choose socialism over capitalism everytime. This is proved by the fact that each and every latino(who chose socialism and wrecked their own country) south of the u.s. wants to invade the United Stated where capitalism(more or less) has built up enough resources. Despite the failed socialist expriment in cuba the childish latinos of venezuela chose maduro. Now they want to invade America to put the same type of people into power to ruin America like they ruined their own country. Latinos are like stupid children who hold a lit fire cracker between their teeth ,then act surprised when it goes off and they get injured. There are examples to the contrary such as Ted Cruze,who is usually despised by his own,who chose hillary stalin instead. But istead of learning that socialism is a failure they just move to the next country and do the same thing in choosing socialism. Does anyone believe that the latino caravan horde who want to invade the u.s. will suddenly turn their backs on socialism when the communist democrats make it possible for them to illegally vote in our country? Socialism was attempted in the new world in 1607 jamestown,the first english colony. Everyone was expected to work and be fed. Yet some chose not to work and expected to be fed anyway(like modern welfare), then the the people who were working worked less because they saw it was was unfair. Most of the original colinists starved to death despite fertile soil and planty of game for hunting. It wasn't until a new leader(I forget his name) implemented private property and people were able to live off of their own hard work instead of the failed,share and share alike, and were also allowed to perfect their own chosen trade. Ok just look at socialist democrate run chicago il and compare it to,can do states, like florida. The e.u. attemped to copy the ,can do,success of the United States of the 1950's and 60's but chose to try it with socialism,which means the more successful countries,such as germany and the u.k. where expected to flip the bill while lazy(socialist) countries like greece,and france, dragged their feet and became more of a monitary parisite than a help.
    The great worriors of ancient sparta would turn in their graves if they were to see how the modern greek people have turned into parasitic consuming pusses.

    Mrs May doesn't need to be sad that the UK is leaving the EU since her proposal means that the UK is not intending to leave the EU.

  16. Saadat Ahmad says:

    This is bad deal for UK can some one see the Mrs May face in EU she was looking as a looser not winner but all EU members face were as a winner, why because our prime Minister worked for EU not UK people

  17. Thomas Paine says:

    Theresa May, you have conspired against our royal person,
    Joined with an enemy proclaimed, and from his coffers
    Received the golden earnest of our death,
    Wherein you would have sold your king to slaughter,
    His princes and his peers to servitude,
    His subjects to oppression and contempt,
    And his whole kingdom into desolation.
    Touching our person, seek we no revenge,
    But we our kingdom’s safety must so tender,
    Whose ruin you have sought, that to her laws
    We do deliver you. Get you therefore hence,
    Poor miserable wretch, to your death,
    The taste whereof God of His mercy give
    You patience to endure, and true repentance
    Of all your dear offences.—Bear her hence.

    Why is this the clipped video? Give us something newsworthy.

  19. Shane says:

    It's not just May. The entire Tory party are to blame for this act of treason. It was clear when she made the offer to never have a border in Ireland that she was only ever going to capitulate.

  20. Shane says:

    Why would she be sad? May is a remainer and she has stopped brexit.
