Britain's May asks for Brexit delay until June 30

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Prime Minister Theresa May requested a three-month delay to Brexit on Wednesday (March 20) after her failure to get a deal ratified by parliament left the United Kingdom's divorce from the European Union in turmoil.

Nearly three years after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union and nine days before the formal exit deadline, British politicians are still arguing over how, when or even if the world's fifth largest economy should leave the bloc it first joined 1973.

When May set the March 29 exit date two years ago by serving the formal Article 50 divorce papers, she declared there would be "no turning back", but parliament's refusal to ratify the withdrawal deal she agreed with the EU has thrust her government into crisis.

Now May has written to European Council President Donald Tusk to ask for a delay until June 30.

"As prime minister I am not prepared to delay Brexit any further than the 30th of June," May told a rowdy session of parliament.
