Theresa May defends Brexit delay amid calls to resign

Theresa May defends Brexit delay amid calls to resign”

LONDON-The EU has given the United Kingdom six more months to leave the bloc, with European Council President Donald Tusk urging British authorities to "not waste this time".

"This is not the normal way of British politics - and it is uncomfortable for many in both the Government and opposition parties", she said.

He hit out at what he said was an apparent attempt by International Trade Secretary Liam Fox to "scupper" the talks by trying to rule out a customs union - a key Labour demand. After that, Britain would be obliged to send representatives to the European Parliament, where a new session begins on July 1. He added that the European elections in May would be the party's "first step" in doing this.

The longer Britain's withdrawal from the European Union is delayed, and the better the Brexit Party does, the more likely we are to see the emergence of a new alternative to the Conservatives.

The sharper shift to the far-right of Farage's former party came previous year with the presidency of Batten, who allied himself with former EDL leader Tommy Robinson after taking over the leadership from Henry Bolton in April.

Barr added, however, that the Mueller findings also did not let Trump and his team off the hook, according to multiple reports. "I have not read the Mueller Report yet, even though I have every right to do so", Trump wrote on Twitter .

"I never wanted to seek this extension", Mrs May said.

Speaking at the launch of the new Brexit Party, led by former Ukip leader Nigel Farage, Ms Rees-Mogg said she had "fought at every election" for the Conservatives "from Maggie Thatcher through to Theresa May".

"As far I know she doesn't have any intention of leaving until that deal is done", Hammond said in an interview with Bloomberg TV's Francine Lacqua at the International Monetary Fund meetings in Washington.

"It is no secret that the Labour leader has ducked and dived on the issue of a second European Union referendum, but at this crucial crossroads it is high time Jeremy Corbyn commits to putting a second referendum on the table as the only way forward".

The ambiguity of the question has meant that politicians across the political spectrum have been able to interpret the results to pursue pretty much any vision of Brexit.

Mr Farage's Brexit Party has set up a website at www.thebrexitparty.org, where internet users can find information about the new group and sign up to support or make donations.

May said ongoing talks on a possible way forward with the main opposition party, Labour, were constructive, adding that she hopes they will produce a "single unified approach" to put before parliament.

"What's indispensable is that nothing should compromise the European project in the months to come", he said.

If May fails to win over lawmakers on the treaty or fails to hold an election, Britain will leave with no deal on June 1. Farage said Friday that delays to Brexit were "a willful betrayal of the greatest democratic exercise in the history of this nation".
