Britain faces ‘MAJOR constitutional crisis’ if MPs reject Brexit deal warns Lord Turnbull

FORMER Head of the Civil Service Lord Turnbull has warned that Britons will be faced with another referendum and a “major constitutional crisis” if MPs reject a final Brexit deal.

Lord Andrew Turnbull, who was the Cabinet Secretary under Tony Blair, said the Government will fall and won’t be able to carry on if MPs dismiss a final  vote.Speaking on BBC Radio 4, Mr Turnbull said: “I think it means that the Government falls, actually. The government can’t carry on and therefore we end up with an election.

The crossbencher said the “life of the Government will depend on” the result of the parliament’s Brexit deal vote.

Mr Turnbull said: “If they can’t get people to accept the deal that they have negotiated in and have presented, I don’t think they can survive.

Mr Davis claimed that  deal might only be agreed “at the 59th minute of the 11th hour” – meaning that MPs would not have a chance to vote on a final Brexit deal.
