Secretary of State for International Trade of Great Britain Liam Fox said that there is a 50 percent chance that Brexit will be stopped if it is rejected by the country's parliament next month. This is reported by Reuters.

In his opinion, the probability of a Brexit stopping by parliament is “50 to 50”.

“If we were not to vote for that, I’m not sure I would give it (Brexit) much more than 50-50,” Fox, a leading supporter of leaving the EU, told the Sunday Times newspaper.

With three months left until the United Kingdom is due to leave the EU on March 29, May’s Brexit deal is floundering, opening up a range of possibilities from a Brexit without a trade deal to calling Brexit off.

Earlier this month, May pulled a planned vote on her deal after admitting parliament would reject it. Lawmakers are set to vote on the deal in the week starting Jan. 14.
