UK PM May under pressure to go for soft Brexit

Britain's Prime Minister is under serious pressure to leave the EU without a deal, go for an election or forge a much softer divorce.

Brexit is in disarray after one of the most tumultuous weeks in British politics since the 2016 referendum.

Theresa May's deal was rejected for the third time on Friday (March 29).

On Monday (April 1), parliament will hold an indicative vote on nine Brexit alternatives.

They'll include a no-deal exit, preventing a no-deal exit, a customs union, and a second referendum.

Then the PM could try one last roll of the dice by bringing her deal back to a fourth vote in parliament as soon as Tuesday (April 2).

May's own enforcer in parliament told the BBC that a softer Brexit was ''inevitable" after May lost her majority in a botched snap election in 2017.

The chief whip, Julian Smith, said that the government as a whole should have been ''clearer on the consequences'' of the loss of seats.

According to The Times newspaper, some senior ministers have threatened resignation if May pursues a softer option.

Currently, the UK is due to leave the European Union on April 12 - unless May comes up with another plan.

But many on both sides of the Brexit fence feel betrayed by a political elite that has failed to show leadership.
