Rudd Suggests 'Plan B' to May's Brexit Deal Ahead of Vote

One of British Prime Minister Theresa May's own Cabinet members has raised the possibility of a "Plan B" should her Brexit deal fail in Parliament.  Amber Rudd, the work and pensions secretary,  says possible alternatives could include  a second referendum or a "Norway Plus" option.

Norway isn't a member of the E.U.

But is a part of its single market, which means it gets free trade with E.U.

Countries.

It also allows free movement of people from E.U.

Countries, something May  has strongly rejected in the past .  Things aren't looking good for May's deal, which Parliament is scheduled to vote on Tuesday.

Aside  from the Labour Party's opposition , she also faces detractors  within her own party  as well as from the Northern Irish  Democratic Unionist Party  — a key ally in her government.

Those critics say the deal's language could leave Northern Ireland under different E.U.

Regulations than the rest of the U.K. and that that's unacceptable.  There are  a lot  of possible scenarios  if the vote fails .

There could be another referendum or another general election; May could resign, or she could get voted out — you get the idea.

One of the concrete things is that May will have to inform Parliament of her next steps within three weeks of the vote.   Additional reporting by  Newsy affiliate CNN .
