May will not ask for long Brexit delay
Theresa May will not be asking the EU for a long delay when she formally requests that Brexit is postponed.
BBC reports that Number 10 said the PM shares the public’s “frustration” at Parliament’s “failure to take a decision”.
EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has said the EU would not grant a delay without a “concrete plan” from the UK about what they would do with it.
Under current law, the UK will leave the EU – with or without a deal – in nine days.
Any delay will have to be agreed by all 27 EU member states and Mrs May is heading to Brussels on Thursday to discuss the options with fellow leaders.
