May to Argue 2nd Referendum Would Violate Public Trust

Monday, 17 December 2018 04:38 AM

LONDON (AP) — Prime Minister Theresa May is set to condemn calls for a second referendum on Britain's departure from the European Union, saying it would do irreparable damage to trust in democracy.

In remarks released ahead of her speech in the House of Commons on Monday, May says that staging another referendum "would say to millions who trusted in democracy that our democracy does not deliver."

She's also expected to argue that such a ballot would exacerbate divisions rather than heal them.

May's supporters distanced themselves from media reports that senior figures in her government held talks with opposition Labour lawmakers aimed at holding another vote.

With time growing short toward Britain's scheduled March 29 departure, it remains unclear whether the country will leave with a deal or crash out with no deal.
