Power sharing deal struck in n ireland is ‘totally unacceptable’ but government to consider how to avoid this happening again
Theresa May confirmed that she would resign as prime minister in a phone call with Jeremy Corbyn yesterday evening, a few hours before the Labour leader was due to attend a press conference with a number of his MPs, to urge them to oppose a deal between the Tories and Labour on an agreement on tax credits for low-income families.
“We are talking about one of the most significant social issues of our time and a decision on that matter is completely unacceptable,” she said.
It was revealed last night that May had called her cabinet colleagues to say that the Conservative party was “extremely committed” to reaching an agreement between the Tori바카라사이트es and Labour on this issue. May met with her backbench colleagues to urge them to back the move.
She told journalists that she had accepted that the tax credit deal was “completely unacceptable” as it would cost £8bn per year and a £250bn cut in funding to public services.
But she insisted that no decision had yet been taken as to whether the government would resign to allow the deal to be completed.
In an interview with the Sun newspaper, she said it was crucial that the terms of the deal were worked out, with the intention of a general election “within weeks”.
She said that, when that happened, the governmentjarvees.com would “consider how we can avoid this happening again”.
Cabinet sources said Labour was unlikely to accept a full public vote on the deal, and that the party would also prefer a ballot on the party whip.
“The fact is we have got people on this who are not going to go for the deal. No-one is. The way the vote is carried out, the only people in Britain going for it are those who believe it is wrong.”
The Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, will meet May in the Commons to discuss what he told the Guardian last night, and who the opposition leader, Ed Miliband,더킹카지노 might be in a leadership contest.
