THERESA MAY’S “NEW BOLD OFFER” ON BREXIT BILL
A ‘new bold offer’ from the British Prime Minister ‘Theresa May’ is expected to be presented to the members of the house of common before the parliament vote early June, this came after three (3) times she failed to have the deal approved by the house.

Jeremy Corbyn also spoke concerning May’s ‘new bold offer’ saying, Labour will oppose the bill and it was very difficult to see it progress. The reason is, new proposals as observed ‘very carefully’ was what was talked about previously which did not appear fundamentally different from that already on the table.
Lastly on this, May’s ‘new bold offer’ to the parliaments with “an improve package of measures” as a final move in an attempt to get the Brexit divorce deal through members of the house of common before she leaves meant a lot.
