Liam Fox says 50/50 chance Brexit could be halted
Britain’s trade minister Liam Fox has said there’s a 50/50 chance Brexit will not happen - if the UK parliament votes down Theresa’s Mays withdrawal agreement. The leading Brexiteer backs Mays deal and told the Sunday Times newspaper that rejection "would shatter the bond of trust between the electorate and Parliament".
The House of Commons is due to have its delayed vote on the agreement in the week beginning January 14th. A cross party group of MPs is said to be pushing for Brexit to be postponed in the event of a no vote.
