(Brexit) Luxembourg PM blames UK lawmakers

World | 14 Dec 2018 7:01 pm

Luxembourg’s prime minister has put the blame for the continuing impasse over Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union clearly with the U.K. parliament and instead praised Prime Minister Theresa May for her efforts.

Xavier Bettel said that "Theresa May is clear. Westminster is not clear. The problem is the MPs in London,” highlighting how May’s fortunes to get the deal through fully lie with the House of Commons.

May already endorsed the withdrawal bill, but her chances of getting it through the U.K. parliament were so slim that she decided to postpone a vote on the deal likely until next month.

Bettel said that "for internal political reasons some people try to gamble the relations between the EU and the U.K. for the future. It’s bad. This is the best possible deal.”-AP
