European Union leaders could hold off making any final decision on any Brexit delay when they meet in Brussels later this week, senior diplomats in the bloc said, depending on what exactly British Prime Minister Theresa May asks them for.
British Prime Minister Theresa May's bid to get her EU divorce deal through parliament was hit Monday (18 March) with a bombshell announcement by the speaker, ruling MPs could not vote again on the same proposal they had already rejected.
“I guess that’s politics, but it’s not a very nice profession at the moment,” Rory Stewart, Prisons Minister in Theresa May’s government said moments after MPs voted against a ‘no deal’ Brexit on Wednesday (13 March).
The European Union executive said on Thursday (14 March) Britain will have to justify any request to postpone Brexit beyond the end of this month and that EU leaders would put a priority on avoiding disrupting EU institutions in considering it.
British Prime Minister Theresa May's political weakness was exposed by a series of defeats in parliament this week, prompting claims that rebel lawmakers can wrest control of the process to leave the European Union. But can lawmakers stop a no-deal Brexit?
The European Union is considering ways to help Prime Minister Theresa May convince the British parliament to back the Brexit treaty she agreed with EU leaders last month but ruled out on Monday (8 January) any change to the deal.
