She called for discussions with MPs for and against the deal to discuss how to recast the deal by next Monday so that the UK can face quitting the EU as a united country. Labor Leader Jeremy Corbyn demanded that May declare a no-deal Brexit a non-option before talks can begin. He was echoed by other MPs.
