The UK Prime Minister’s plan to bypass the parliament had backfired. Now, she is threatening would-be Tory rebels who would support the Parliament in cancelling the Brexit that they would be “halting the will of the people.”

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said that she will not proceed with talks if there is no deal between the UK government and parliament. Tory MPs against bypassing Parliament said the move could become unconstitutional and introduce serious economic consequences due to the lack of legal safeguards.

According to Prime Minister Theresa May, the UK’s European partners “now want to get on with negotiations.” She added the House of Commons vote for Brexit had seen a 384 majority support for the government to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty — a final article for leaving the European Union.

“But the message is clear to all – this House has spoken and now is not the time to obstruct the democratically expressed wishes of the British people. It is time to get on with leaving the European Union and building an independent, self-governing, global Britain,” she said. Tories who still wish the UK to remain in Europe could only deliver a 27 vote in the Parliament, a small number compared to the opposition.
