Give deal a "second look", British PM May urges parliament

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: British Prime Minister Theresa May urged lawmakers on Monday to take "a second look" at her deal to leave the European Union, warning them that voting it down could open the way for the breakup of the United Kingdom.

"I say to members on all sides of this house, whatever you may have previously concluded, over these next 24 hours, give this deal a second look," May told parliament.

With just over 24 hours before parliament is widely expected to reject her Brexit deal, May is trying to win over Conservative lawmakers and her nominal allies in Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party to her agreement.

The DUP and many Conservative Brexit supporters have already said they will not vote for her deal on Tuesday (January 15).
