May to force a second Brexit vote if first fails - report

Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Theresa May will push for a second Brexit vote if the Withdrawal Agreement does not pass the Parliament, the Sun said in an article. Allegedly, May was offered assistance by the German Chancellor Angela Merkel who told her the European Union will be able to provide more concessions if the agreement fails to garner enough support.

"Merkel believes there is more the EU can do once the vote is over as no deal would be a disaster for everyone, and they agreed to talk after it," the British newspaper reported, citing an anonymous source.

Earlier, the head of the UK government warned a no-deal Brexit represents the "real threat" to the unity of the country, while the Trade Secretary Liam Fox claimed exiting the union without an agreement would be worse than triggering the Irish backstop. However, the former Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab contrasted their claims, insisting a no-deal withdrawal "could be the only possible outcome."
