Theresa May rushes to Strasbourg to find a deal as Brexit crunch looms
NO REPORTER NARRATION.
British Prime Minister Theresa May rushed to Strasbourg on Monday (March 11) to seek concessions from the European Union in a last-ditch attempt to avoid another humiliating defeat in parliament of her deal to exit the bloc.
Just 18 days before the United Kingdom is due to leave the EU, there is still no ratified divorce deal and talks with the bloc stalled over the weekend as May felt she was unable to break the political deadlock in London.
In a day of frenetic diplomacy ahead of a Tuesday (March 12) parliamentary vote on her deal, May spoke to European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in an effort to find a way through the Brexit maze.
European officials expressed frustration with May's attempts to secure concessions with so little time left before Britain is due to leave on March 29.
According to Reuters, France is ready to veto any British request for a Brexit delay that may postpone a decision without offering a way out of its deadlock or put at risk European Union institutions...
According to Reuters, Prime Minister Theresa May will ask the European Union to delay Brexit by at least three months after her plan to hold another vote this week on her divorce deal was thrown into..
