Brexit: May reaches out to Labour, asks European Union for delay

614c1aeb Brexit to be delayed again as Prime Minister announces she will seek further extention of Article 50

In an about-face that left pro-Brexit members of May's Conservative Party howling with outrage, May sought to forge an agreement with left-wing Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn after failing three times to win Parliament's backing for her Brexit deal.

Talks between Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn to break the Brexit deadlock have been called "constructive".

DExEU has faced seven ministerial resignations and one principle private secretary quitting their role in protest at Mrs May's hated Brexit deal.

Addressing the nation from inside Number 10, Theresa May said that "debate and division can not drag on" as the countries seeks to find a solution to the Brexit deadlock. "It requires national unity to deliver the national interest".

Letwin and Cooper will launch their plot to stop No Deal by passing a law compelling Theresa May to ask for a long delay to Brexit.

The lower house of the British parliament on Wednesday approved legislation which would force Prime Minister Theresa May to seek a Brexit delay to prevent a potentially disorderly departure on 12 April without a deal.

To date, British lawmakers have rejected that agreement three times.

She has tried cross-party talks before, but they led nowhere. Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said there was now no reason to agree an extension. This will focus on the future relationship.

Her divorce deal with the other 27 European Union nations has been rejected three times by parliament and patience is wearing thin in Brussels as an April 12 deadline to end Britain's 46-year membership nears with no agreement in sight.

Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg tweeted a copy of a motion she had been sent that had started to circulate around the House of Commons this afternoon.

India claims space debris poses minimal threat
With the test done last month, India has mastered the capability to kill satellites at 300 km above the earth, Reddy said. The danger from "space junk" is not that it falls to Earth but that it collides with orbiting satellites.

If that fails, it will be up to Parliament to decide what happens next, she said.

Any revised deal would have to be agreed by Parliament by Wednesday, May 22 to avoid the United Kingdom having to stand in the European elections.

May said her unpopular Withdrawal Agreement, which deals with the terms of the divorce, rather than the future partnership, will need to be passed as part of any arrangement with Corbyn.

MPs have reacted furiously over the past 24 hours following two bombshell announcements from the Prime Minister at Downing Street last night. But none of the Plan B options they've put forward has won a majority.

"If there is no deal, there is no transition", he added.

The Bill - passed by a single vote in the Commons on Wednesday - allows Parliament to determine the length of any Brexit extension the Prime Minister should request at the European Union summit on April 10. "I don't want to set any limits, one way or the other, ahead of those meetings".

She added: "We can and must find the compromises that will deliver what the British people voted for".

"Labour has put forward our proposals to ensure there is a customs union with the EU, access to vital markets and protections of our standards of consumer, environmental and workers' rights", he said on Tuesday.

The European Union has given London until 12 April to either come up with an alternative solution or leave without a deal on that day. That might now have to change.
