During the speech, the UK prime minister said that UK House of Commons potentially rejecting the withdrawal agreement could result either in no deal exit or no Brexit at all.

“Settle the question of our withdrawal, and we can move on to forging a new relationship. Back the deal tomorrow and that work can start on Wednesday. Fail, and we face the risk of leaving without a deal or the even bigger risk of not leaving at all,” May said in her speech in Stoke-on-Trent.

Tomorrow, the British House of Commons will vote on a proposed Brexit deal that was agreed upon with Brussels in November. Less than 11 weeks remain until the UK is slated to part ways with the 27 remaining member states of the union.
