Theresa May Fights for Brexit Deal, Says ‘Agreed in Full’


British Prime Minister Theresa May has sought to rally support for her unpopular draft Brexit deal, stating that the agreement means Britain will be “fully in control” of immigration.

Speaking to business leaders in London on Monday, May said that immigration to the United Kingdom would be based on skills and experience, while citizens from the European Union would not have preferential treatment.

“Once we’ve left the EU, we will be fully in control of who comes here,” May said.

“It will no longer be the case that EU nationals, regardless of the skills or experience they have to offer, can jump the queue ahead of engineers from Sydney or software developers from Delhi.”

Since reaching a deal over the terms of Britain’s withdrawal from the EU last week, May’s government has been in crisis, with attacks on the deal coming from all sides.

Several ministers, including her Brexit minister, have resigned over the terms of the agreement while dissenting MPs within her own party have sought to trigger a leadership challenge.

May has vowed to fight on, warning rebellious MPs that removing her from office would not make Brexit easier.
