🇬🇧 Brexit Compromise: Theresa May Seeks Delay to Agree Deal With Labour Party 🇪🇺
Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday she would ask the European Union for a further delay to Brexit beyond April 12 to give her time to sit down with the opposition Labour Party in a bid to break the impasse over Britain’s departure. Nearly three years since the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU in a shock referendum result, British politics is in crisis and it is unclear how, when or if it will ever quit the European club it first joined in 1973. “We will need a further extension of Article 50, one that is as short as possible and which ends when we pass a deal,” May said after spending more then seven hours chairing crisis cabinet meetings. “We need to be clear what such an extension is for – to ensure we leave in a timely and orderly way.” “I am offering to sit down with the leader of the opposition and to try to agree a plan – that we would both stick to – to ensure that we leave the European Union and that we do so with a deal,” May said.
