Theresa May says it is a 'moment of decision' as Brexit is delayed



Theresa May insisted tonight it was the ‘moment of decision’ for MPs as she accepted EU terms for delaying Brexit by at least two weeks. EU Council President Donald Tusk confirmed plans for a two-stage delay plan. If Mrs May passes her deal at a third attempt next week, Britain will be allowed to stay in the EU until May 22. If she fails, Britain must say whether it will take part in the EU elections by April 12. If elections take place, a longer delay could be agreed – but if the polls are not held then No Deal looms because Britain staying in becomes impossible. The agreement avoids the need for an emergency EU summit as soon as next week. EU sources told Sky News the plan ‘reduces the likelihood of a chaotic crash out in the next 7 days, or a 24 hour scramble to find an alternative.’ In a press conference held after midnight in Brussels, Mrs May said she would return to Britain in the morning to resume work on building support for the deal. Most in Westminster believe she is doomed to fail a third time. She insisted Britain should still leave in an ‘orderly fashion’ with a deal despite MPs rejecting it twice by a landslide. Amid fury at her tirade against MPs last night, Mrs May admitted to expressing her ‘frustration’ at the situation – insisting politicians on all sides had ‘passionately held views’ – but stopped short of apologising.

Theresa May ‘humiliated’ at EU summit



It’s one giant hurdle after another for the embattled British Premier, Theresa May. Just 2 days since surviving a confidence vote from her own party, she’s now back in the lion’s den of Brussels. She’s desperately looking for anything she can take back from a meeting of EU ministers, which might win over her skeptical parliament to her Brexit plan. READ MORE: https://on.rt.com/9ki2

Former cabinet members question Theresa May over Brexit deal



The Prime Minister made her latest desperate bid to win over critics after sealing the package at an EU summit over the weekend. Despite looking on track for a catastrophic defeat in a crunch vote in Parliament next month, Mrs May told MPs they had a ‘duty’ to listen to constituents and do ‘what is in the national interest’. But she was berated by politicians from all sides – including Boris Johnson, David Davis and Iain Duncan Smith. The DUP again condemned the backstop, while Jeremy Corbyn said the package pleased ‘nobody’. Even previous loyalists such as ex-Cabinet minister Sir Michael Fallon joined in the criticism. Extraordinarily, it took over an hour of brutal attacks from across the chamber before the first MP – Nicky Morgan – spoke in defence of Mrs May. At one point during the battering, Mrs May ruefully remarked that she barely seemed to have achieved one task that people claimed was ‘impossible’ before they were demanding she completed another one. The mauling underlines the massive task facing the PM, as she stares down the barrel of almost certain disaster in the House next month. It came after Mrs May told the Cabinet that the breakthrough in Brussels meant the doubters had been ‘proved wrong’.
