Resolve Brexit, or face "extreme unpredictability," UK Foreign Secretary warns

Written by on March 21, 2019

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt also told BBC Radio 4’s Today program that he wasn’t sure if Theresa May’s deal would be presented at Parliament next week.

He said if the issue couldn’t be resolved, three things could happen next week.

  1. Parliament could vote to revoke Article 50 and cancel Brexit (Hunt added this was “highly unlikely.”)
  2. An emergency EU summit could be held to “offer us an extension” that could have “some very onerous conditions.”
  3. No deal is reached and as the legal default, Britain crashes out of the EU on Friday, March 29.

“The choice we have now is one of resolving this issue, or extreme unpredictability,” Hunt said.
