European Union to grant May’s Brexit delay, but not without conditions, the extension could be no later than December
CRIMSON TAZVINZWA|The European Union will grant Prime Minister Theresa May a second delay to Brexit at an emergency summit on Wednesday but the bloc’s leaders are likely to demand she accepts a longer extension with conditions.
Whilst Theresa May was in Paris and Berlin, back home in the Commons, 97 of her MPs voted against her desire for a Brexit extension and 80 Tory MPs, including 12 ministers, did not vote at all.
She’s asked to postpone Britain’s departure until 30 June, but the European Council President has said tonight he doesn’t think that gives her enough time to overcome the “deep divisions” in Westminster.
He wants Europe’s leaders to discuss an extension of up to a year when they meet for their emergency summit in Brussels this week.
