She said Britain has now been provided with the time necessary to finally break the Brexit impasse, telling MPs: "The choices we face are stark and the timetable is clear".

The party also fears any promises made by May could be undone by her successor, who is likely to come from the staunchly pro-Brexit wing of the Conservative Party. May came in Brussels trying to postpone Britain's departure from the EU.

She noted that when United Kingdom lawmakers back her Brexit bargain, Britain could still leave by June 30 - that the Brexit deadline she'd requested in the bloc - and maybe when May 22, which would release Britain from needing to take part in elections to the European Parliament.

Brexit? What Brexit? British lawmakers have avoided the subject of the afternoon before Parliament throughout the yearly look of the prime minister.

THE one outcome which Theresa May did not want from Wednesday's European Union summit in Brussels was an extension of Brexit beyond the end of May.

Others indicated a longer delay would probably be required, given that the depth of the political disarray of Britain.

In a potential European Parliament election, Labour would lead with 24 per cent, followed by the Conservatives on 16 per cent, the Brexit party on 15, UKIP on 14, the Lib Dems and Greens scoring 8 per cent each, and Change UK on 7 per cent, the poll claimed.

"It would be unforgivable if Labour side-stepped a second European Union referendum in the talks and instead pushed through a deal that would drag Scotland out of the single market and end freedom of movement - which will hit our public services and cost thousands of jobs". A more extension was favored by some European leaders, while French President Emmanuel Macron was wary of anything but a delay. Few believe Theresa May can survive as Prime Minister far beyond this December. After the European Union summit, German Chancellor Merkel sounded open to the possibility of a further extension.

German lawmakers were addressed by merkel on Wednesday before European Union leaders meet in Brussels to decide whether to grant Britain's petition for a delay past the Friday night job that was existing.

The message - said to have been sent to all civil servants in an unnamed "front line Brexit department" - said the suspension was taking place with "immediate effect".

"She added that there also has to be more" a readiness to take part constructively in decisions".

Britain will leave the bloc Friday unless it cancels Brexit separately Wednesday, if no expansion materializes.

"Merkel told German lawmakers that a disorderly Brexit" is not in our interest".

Sir Bill said: "Does the Prime Minister appreciate the anger that her abject surrender last night has generated across the country, having broken promises 100 times not to extend the time?"

"It is true that the majority was more in favour of a very long extension".

Why I'll never know, because it weakens your negotiating powers.

The shadow Brexit secretary, Keir Starmer, raised the issue of Liam Fox, the global trade secretary, writing to Conservative MPs saying a customs union with the EU was the "worst of all words" as evidence that it does not look like the government is completely on board with negotiations.

Opposition Liberal Democrat leader on Kent County Council Rob Bird said that Highways England should act immediately to lift Operation Brock: "It is disruptive it is risky; it is not working effectively or efficiently and we should get rid of it".

Make UK and sister organization Ceemet issued a joint letter to heads of state and chief negotiator Michel Barnier warning of shock in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

Prime Minister Theresa May travels to request for another expansion to the passing of Britain, before June 30.
