Posted February 15, 2019 12:15:25The U.K.’s Prime Minister has warned that the U.N. General Assembly could change its vote on a new trade pact with the European Union (EU) to make it easier for Britain to leave the bloc.
The U and U.C.V.T. deal, the European Economic Area (EEA), which is aimed at creating a trans-Atlantic trade area, has been under a “toughening” vote since last November.
The British government said last week that it had to postpone its vote due to the new EU deal.
Britain will vote on Wednesday on a version of the pact that is still being negotiated.
Prime Minister Theresa May has said it would be a “difficult decision” to vote against the deal, but her opponents argue it is a crucial step to protect British interests in the EU.
The deal would allow Britain to continue using the U,N.
financial institution, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other organizations to finance its EU-U.S. trade.
But critics say the pact is too generous for British workers, with workers earning more than €50,000 a year earning just €6,000 in annual payments.
The United Kingdom has been negotiating the agreement with the EU since 2014, but the two sides have not agreed on a deal since then.
The European Commission is responsible for enforcing the agreement.
The EU and the U of A have agreed to a deal in March, but it has not yet been approved by the U and the European Parliament.
The pact has sparked a wave of anger and resentment among British voters, who have voted to leave EU by a slim margin in the Brexit referendum last June.
A poll released Wednesday by the Times shows 61 percent of voters want Britain to vote to remain in the EEA, and another 21 percent are undecided.
A quarter of voters said they supported Britain leaving the EU in the event of Brexit, while 26 percent said they would be voting to stay in the bloc if Brexit were to happen.
