UK's May under pressure to rule out long Brexit delay

Nicky Morgan

According to the Guardian, "Sources suggested Downing Street would need to advise Brussels of the way forward by 8 April to allow member states to prepare for the summit".

The British pound, which has been buoyed in recent weeks by hopes that the likelihood of an abrupt "no-deal" Brexit is receding, fell half a percent after May lost, to as low as$1.2977, but then recovered some of its losses. These preparations are directed squarely against the working class.

Meanwhile, advisors to May are divided over whether she should call a snap election if she fails to win support for her Brexit deal from parliament in the coming week, The Mail on Sunday newspaper said. It has rejected no Brexit.

Nearly three years after Britain voted in June 2016 to leave the European Union, and two years after it set its departure date for March 29, 2019, British politicians remain deadlocked over Brexit.

"That is a point I have made on a number of occasions", he said.

The prime minister is considering her next move after her withdrawal plan was defeated by MPs for a third time. Get us out on the 12th of April.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas added: "We are running out of time to prevent a disorderly Brexit". "Because if we don't, God help us".

May had told parliament the vote was the last chance to ensure Britain's exit, or Brexit, would take place.

He said: 'I would rather leave the customs union but we also have to recognise that my party does not have the votes to get the manifesto commitment through the Commons. She made the offer to win over members of her Conservative Party who support a more decisive break with the European Union than her deal offers.

The federal government is warning Canadians in the U.K.to "exercise a high degree of caution" as Brexit protests intensify in London after a third "no deal" vote.

On Friday, by a 286-344 vote, the British parliament rejected the European Union withdrawal agreement for a third time.

In his contribution to Friday's debate, Corbyn told the House that it had to "compromise to get this resolved".

Lewis said the option of a customs union would be hard to pursue because it flew in the face of the Conservatives' pledges before the 2017 national election and did not respect the outcome of the 2016 Brexit referendum.

Somehow, the former Foreign Secretary, who resigned from May's cabinet past year over the Brexit deal before agreeing to back it after May offered to resign, is still the frontrunner to succeed the prime minister. The intention is to see what outcome, if any, commands a majority.

However, May's spokesman said she would continue talks with opponents of the deal and some political correspondents said she could bring it back a fourth time, perhaps in a "run-off" against any alternative that parliament itself came up with.

Opposition lawmakers declared May's deal as good as dead.

Eight of the Blairites, who split off in order to set up The Independent Group (TIG) with three ex-Tories last month, calculate that if events lead to a general election, a much larger split in the Labour Party could materialise over Brexit policy.
