Snap election: Conservatives seek stronger mandate for Brexit negotiations

April 18, 2017, LexisPSL

Lisa Peets is quoted in a LexisPSL article regarding the Conservative Party's mandate for a hard Brexit. According to Peets, "An increased majority gives the Prime Minister greater flexibility to push for a harder or a softer Brexit, depending on what she actually wants." She adds, "A healthy majority helps May show the EU that she can deliver on her negotiating promises and also helps her more credibly push the ‘no deal is better than a bad deal’ position…should that prove necessary."
