Never can say goodbye? UK parliament asks EU for Brexit delay

Description

British MPs have voted overwhelmingly to ask the EU to delay Brexit for at least 3 months. UK is due to leave the European Union in 15 days with no deal after Theresa May's withdrawal agreement was rejected by MPs twice. Today 412 voted in favour of the government requesting an extension from the EU, 202 voted against. The EU has warned there must be a credible reason for an extension. So, how should the rest of the 27 respond?

  • UK Lords set to pass Brexit law forcing May to consult parliament on delay

    According to Reuters, Britain’s upper house of parliament is expected to pass a law later on Monday that will force Prime Minister Theresa May to seek a delay to the country’s exit from the European Union to prevent a disorderly Brexit on April 12. May has already requested an extension to Britain’s EU membership until June 30 and is working with the opposition Labour Party to come up with a different exit plan, in a last-ditch attempt to keep control after her own Brexit deal was rejected three times by the lower House of parliament. However, lawmakers want additional legal guarantees against a ‘no-deal’ exit, and have torn up convention by driving their own piece of legislation through parliament against the prime minister’s will.
