Theresa May fails to answer questions on whether she will resign if Parliament reject her Brexit deal

Theresa May dodges question on whether she will resign if the deal doesn't go through in Parliament, three times, while answering questions on Radio 5 Live with Emma Barnett.

Theresa May has refused to rule out resigning if her Brexit deal fails to gain approval in the Commons, saying she is focused on persuading MPs that the country supports the deal.

During a public phone-in on BBC Radio 5Live, the PM was asked three times to clarify whether she would stake her premiership on the result of the parliamentary vote.

"I'm not thinking about me," she said. "I'm thinking about getting a deal through that is good for the country. My focus is on getting this deal through."
