BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker said on Monday he agreed updates to the Brexit deal with British Prime Minister Theresa May but warned the House of Commons would not get a third chance on the agreement if it rejects it again on Tuesday.
“There will be no third chance. There will be no further interpretations of the interpretations, no further assurances of the re-assurances – if the meaningful vote tomorrow fails,” Juncker said.
“Our agreement provides meaningful clarifications & legal guarantees to the Withdrawal Agreement & backstop,” Juncker told a midnight news conference with May in Strasbourg.
“The choice is clear: it is this deal, or Brexit may not happen at all. Let’s bring the UK’s withdrawal to an orderly end. We owe it to history.”
