Brexit: Revoke Article 50 if deal fails, Theresa May urged

Jeremy Corbyn facing Theresa May

May offered to quit to get her deal passed, but it was defeated for a third time last Friday - the day Britain was originally due to leave the EU.

Also on Friday, a poll result revealed by the Sky News said that a quarter of the British public would boycott European Parliament elections if they happen in Britain in May.

But the EU's view is that if there is an extension, it should be longer, given the deadlock in the U.K. France was quick to say it was "premature" to talk of an extension.

A combination photo shows a copy of a letter from Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May, to European Council President, Donald Tusk, regarding Brexit in London, Britain April 5, 2019. French President Emmanuel Macron has thus far seemed cautious about giving Britain more time.

Jacob Rees-Mogg is the MP for North East Somerset and a prominent campaigner for Britain to exit the European Union at the earliest possible opportunity, even if it means leaving with no deal, which many economists say would cause a financial crisis at least in the short term.

It is the latest twist in a saga which leaves Britain, the world's fifth-biggest economy, struggling to find a way to honor a 2016 referendum vote to take the country out of the globe's largest trading bloc.

The prime minister said she is informing the European Council that the United Kingdom is "seeking a further extension to the period provided under Article 50 (3) of the Treaty of the European Union". It would mean Britain having to take part in the European Parliament elections slated for May.

In what was seen as an overt display of goodwill towards the Labour Party, Chancellor Philip Hammond yesterday used a visit to Romania to declare there were "no red lines" in the talks.

As per the security bulletin, excluding fixing the above the Pixel phones and tablets get several key improvements and fixes. However, Verizon continues to offer the Pixel 2 XL as of now at full retail pricing, which is not at all a good deal.

She said if cross-party talks with the Labour Party could not establish "a single unified approach" in the UK Parliament - MPs would be asked to vote on a series of options instead which the government "stands ready to abide by".

On Saturday night Downing Street said discussions with Labour to find a Brexit compromise that could pass through parliament before Wednesday's European Union summit were "ongoing" at a technical level, but declined to be drawn on whether there were any plans to hold votes tomorrow or Tuesday, before May heads to Brussels.

Deep divisions in May's Conservative Party and government, and in Labour, have led to a marathon of votes in parliament, in which scenarios ranging from abandoning the European Union with no transition period to cancelling Brexit have all been defeated.

During the two-hour session on Wednesday, May and Corbyn agreed to a programme of cross-party talks to seek a mutually acceptable agreement on the UK's withdrawal from the EU.

"A no deal outcome is bad for the UK".

Theresa May has written to Donald Tusk asking to extend the Article 50 process, and delay the United Kingdom leaving the EU. Party leader Corbyn has been hard to pin down on whether this would still be necessary if May agrees to a customs union.

But EU sources said Mr Tusk is recommending a longer postponement of one year, with a break clause in the case of earlier ratification, in a so-called "flextension" deal.

He said that "telling our constituents why we haven't been able to deliver Brexit" would lead to a wipe out, adding: 'It would be, I think, a suicide note of the Conservative Party'.
