The tough Brexit strategy of Theresa May is threatened now as the rebel Tory and Labor party MPs have formed a cross-party group. This is amidst the UK PM preparing to announce the repeals Bill this week. The repeal bill of the UK will replace all the laws of the EU with the legal framework of the UK.
Former Tory Minister Anna Soubry and former Labour shadow Business Secretary Chuka Umunna will lead the cross-party alliance opposing tough Brexit strategy. The alliance will also consist of MPs from SNP, Liberal Democratic Party, Plaid Cymru, and Greens, as quoted by The Guardian. This cross-party group will spearhead the coordination of opposition in the UK Parliament against the tough Brexit strategy of May.
The cross-party group in the UK Parliament has been named as EU Relations All Party Parliamentary Group. The repeal bill will be the first instance for this group to examine the next phase of the Brexit strategy.
Former Labour shadow Business Secretary Chuka Umunna had led the revolt against quitting the EU single market in June 2017. The Labor MP said that they will not be mute spectators in the formulation of the Brexit strategy. The MPs will actively participate in the policy process for Brexit representing the will of the electorates, added Umunna.
The cross-party alliance will crusade the cause of UK’s future relations with the EU. This relation protects the prosperity of the UK, work rights and ensures a safer and better world, added Chuka Umunna.
UK MPs of the opposition and revolting Tory MPs are pushing for a softer Brexit. They are likely to seek amendments to ensure additional safeguards during the voting for the repeal bills in the Parliament.
