Acknowledging "huge frustration" among voters that the United Kingdom has not yet left the European Union, she said: "The choices we now face are stark and the timetable is clear". She urged members of Parliament to take stock and "reflect" over a 10-day Easter break that starts Friday.

Consensus, however, was in short supply.

She agreed with opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn that talks between the two camps are "serious, detailed and ongoing", adding that "there is actually more agreement" between the often-warring sides on the issue of a post-Brexit plan than most observers realize.

Getting the UK Parliament to rally behind a Brexit deal seems all but impossible after multiple defeats in the House of Commons, including a January 15 vote in which May's deal was rejected by both pro-Brexit and anti-Brexit members of Parliament in a record-setting defeat.

The former U.K. Independence Party leader said delays to Brexit were "a willful betrayal of the greatest democratic exercise in the history of this nation".

May has in recent months failed to sway many hardline Brexiteers in her party partly because of deep opposition to provision in the withdrawal agreement about making sure the border between European Union member Ireland and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, remains seamless.

One of the candidates he introduced was Annunziata Rees-Mogg, sister of British MP, Jacob Rees-Mogg who is one of Britain's best known political figures.

This is the second delay to Brexit. If that happens the only way to stop Britain crashing out would be for the Government to choose the "nuclear option" and revoke the decision to leave.

Pro-EU politicians said the next few months should be used to hold a new referendum on whether to leave the EU or remain. In the end, they made a decision to split the difference.

Mrs May believes that a June 30 deadline is enough time for Britain's Parliament to ratify a Brexit deal and pass the legislation needed for a smooth Brexit.

He has been critical of the way British Prime Minister Theresa May has handled Brexit negotiations with Brussels.
