Brexit is 113 days away, but British Prime Minister Theresa May has only five days to get her Parliament to vote for her Brexit deal. It appears rather unlikely that she will be able to convince her own party to back her deal. May has deployed her Chief Whip, Julian Smith, in order to talk so called rebels into voting for May’s deal. The backdrop is that he comes empty handed which means there is little hope that those opposed to the deal will simply change their mind. They are against it for a reason and unless the reason changes, there is nothing there to change their mind.
