Prime Minister Theresa May was to pile the pressure on Brussels on Friday, saying their willingness to budge could determine whether British MPs finally back a Brexit deal next week.
Talks with Britain on amending its divorce deal with the European Union have made no headway and no swift solution is in sight, EU officials said on Wednesday, a week before British lawmakers must vote on the planto avoid a chaotic Brexit.
Britain’s scheduled departure from the European Union on March 29 will be delayed by a few months, a Reuters poll found, and a majority of economists say the two sides will eventually agree a free-trade deal.
Britain’s main opposition Labour Party has said it could support a second Brexit referendum as the European Union opened the door to postponing the country’s exit from the bloc beyond the March 29 deadline.
Delaying Britain’s exit from the European Union does not deliver a deal and merely delays the big decision on Brexit, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday.
