Theresa May has ruled out a long extension to Brexit while she is Prime Minister. (Subscribe: https://bit.ly/C4_News_Subscribe)
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.

The PM called on politicians to get behind her deal as the EU warned Britain will crash out with No Deal within days if they don’t.
It comes as the PM hinted she will quit if her deal doesn’t go through, rather than risk prolonging Brexit beyond June.
Speaking from 10 Downing Street tonight, Mrs May pinned the blame for Brexit chaos on squabbling MPs who can’t decide what they want.
She blasted: “MPs have been unable to agree on a way to implement the UK’s withdrawal. As a result, we will not now leave on time with a deal on March 29.
“This delay is a matter of great personal regret for me. And of this I am absolutely sure – you the public have had enough.
“You are tired of the infighting. You are tired of the political games and arcane procedural rows. Tired of MPs talking about nothing else but Brexit when you have real concerns about our children’s schools, our National Health Service, and knife crime.
“You want this stage of the Brexit process to be over and done with. I agree. I am on your side. It is now time for MPs to decide.”
