If the proposal does not make it through Britain's Parliament, it is unclear whether Britain faces re-negotiation, a "no-deal" situation, or a second referendum on the issue. However, May said another referendum is unlikely. "There should not be that second referendum. The public would expect parliament to vote on the deal. For most people in the UK they want a deal done and want us to get on with focusing more clearly on the issues that matter to them day to day," she told the gathered media. If the proposal does not make it through Britain's Parliament, it is unclear whether Britain faces re-negotiation, a "no-deal" situation, or a second referendum on the issue.
