Brexit: May antagonizes UK Parliament with public address | DW News



Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel has confirmed that the EU could approve Britain’s request for a short extension to Brexit. Merkel told German lawmakers that the EU could back a delay if British lawmakers passed the British prime minister’s withdrawal deal in a vote next week. This despite the fact that it has already been rejected twice. Chancellor Merkel’s comments were part of a policy speech to the German parliament ahead of an EU summit that starts today in Brussels. She began her speech by saying she favored a delay if it meant an orderly Brexit that was able to resolve the issues surrounding the Irish border.
Meanwhile British prime minister Theresa May used a national TV address to give her fellow parliamentarians a good telling off.

May offers MPs chance to delay Brexit



For months, Theresa May has ruled out any extension to the Brexit process. But today, in the face of opposition from within her own cabinet, she blinked. (Subscribe: https://bit.ly/C4_News_Subscribe)

She told the Commons that if MPs reject her Brexit deal next month, then they will get to vote on whether Britain should leave with no deal or have a short delay. The concession came with the warning that delaying Brexit could bring about a “much sharper cliff-edge” just three months later. Fresh from his own Brexit policy U-turn, the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said her policy was “grotesquely reckless”.
