UK Week Ahead: Tough Week Ahead for UK PM May | Webinar
- Brexit continues to dominate, and PM May is under pressure.
- ECB meeting may come on the back of poor Germany numbers.
UK PM May Battling for Her Political Career.
After yet another EU Summit meeting ended with the UK being told to do more – especially over the Irish border situation – PM Theresa May has been asked to attend the 1922 Committee to answer questions over her latest Brexit plans. The PM’s Chequers plan continues to divide Parliament and the latest talk of an extension to the transition period has infuriated many within her party. If the Committee receive 48 letters of no confidence in the PM, a leadership election would be triggered. According to rumors – unsubstantiated – the Committee have already received around 46 letters.
Sterling remains weak and will continue to stay offered until this meeting – if it takes place – and the outcome of the no-confidence calls – are clear. The data calendar is also clear and should not cloud matters.
