MAY ACCUSED OF BRIBING LAWMAKERS TO WIN BREXIT SUPPORT

The British opposition Labour Party on Monday accused Conservative Party member and Prime Minister Theresa May of attempting to bribe lawmakers into supporting her Brexit deal, after she promised extra funds for economically deprived areas of England.
May recently announced a 1.6-billion-pound stronger towns fund for parts of northern and central England less than four weeks before Britain is scheduled to leave the EU on March 29.
Meanwhile, the Labour party said the initiative smacks of desperation from a government reduced to bribing MPs to vote for their damaging flagship Brexit legislation.
