British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday warned the dissenting voices in her party to either back the Chequers plan or be prepared to crash out of the European Union without a deal.

May defended the Chequers plan, which prompted the resignations of David Davis and Boris Johnson, saying that one of the E.U.’s Brexit proposals appeared “betraying the vote of the British people” while the other could have left the U.K. broken up, reports The Guardian.

With politics weighing down the chances of an amicable divorce agreement between the U.K. and the E.U., the country could be heading to “a bad Brexit deal or a damaging “no-deal,” notes Reuters.
