In angry exchanges at Prime Minister’s Questions, she told MPs that they had indulged themselves on Brexit for too long and that she would never agree to a delay that meant holding European Parliamentary elections.
Instead she has asked the European Council for a delay until the end of June. The European Council President Donald Tusk responded by saying he thought a short extension was possible, but only if MPs vote for the deal next week. With those two ultimatums on the table, MPs’ choices in next week’s vote appear to be narrowing rapidly.
British Prime Minister Theresa May scolded the British parliament in the speech Wednesday, saying she was not interested in a calling an election or holding another Brexit referendum and that MPs should “do their jobs” to avoid damaging England’s democratic institutions.
May warned that continuing to bicker about the same issue that has dogged the British parliament for nearly three years without coming to a resolution will cause irreparable damage to Britain’s democratic institutions.
