AP report: European Union offers to postpone Brexit until October 31

Open this

The dragging out of Brexit comes after May declared that "Brexit means Brexit, and we're going to make a success of it" July 11, 2016, when she was leader of the Conservative Party.

Annunziata Rees-Mogg speaks during the launch of the Brexit Party's European election campaign, Coventry, England, Friday, April 12, 2019.

"This is not the normal way of British politics - and it is uncomfortable for many in both the Government and opposition parties", she said.

Updating the House of Commons hours after the 27 other European Union leaders agreed to postpone Brexit until October 31, May said she knew the country was "intensely frustrated" by the impasse.

She added: "The point at which our Prime Minister will not listen, not only to her membership but will not listen to the people of her country..."

"But, as far as I know, she doesn't have any intention of leaving until that deal is done". May herself faced a backlash from MPs when she appeared to blame them for the chaos, accusing them of "political games" and "arcane political rows" that she and the public had exhausted of.

Amid the hype and din, campaign for 91 Lok Sabha seats ends
Four seats in Assam will go to polls, with former CM Tarun Gogoi's son Gaurav Gogoi testing poll waters from Kaliabor. In Telangana, almost 2.97 crore voters will decide the fortunes of 443 candidates in the single-phase polling.

The Daily Telegraph quoted Jacob Rees-Mogg as expressing his regret that his sister has left the Conservatives to stand as a candidate for Farage's Brexit Party.

Conservatives hope to avoid such an outcome amid fears the Brexit stalemate will lead to an electoral wipeout that would open the door for what they see as Corbyn's damaging left-wing policies.

"They deserve nothing less than that after the way they've treated us over this betrayal".

'Our task and our mission is to change politics for good. I am angry about what has happened.

"I said many years ago I wanted to cause an quake in British politics".

While the Foreign Office has done a fantastic job in keeping Britons up-to-date on Brexit the politicians have failed us in London.

Mr Farage said small donors were funding a "rebirth of democracy" with more than £750,000 flowing into the party's offers in just 10 days.

He said: "I am told enough of the referendum doubters are close to folding, partly because the advantages of Labour rebranding as the people's vote vanguard in the forthcoming European parliamentary and council elections would be very significant". On Friday, Nigel Farage launched the campaign of his newly formed Brexit Party.

Mr Tusk confirmed the European Union move in a tweet on Thursday.

Adding to the historical atmospherics, he underlined his belief that the European Union leaders have not yet seen the end of the Brexit story by serenading journalists with a whistled version of the 1939 British song "We'll Meet Again", a tune that for Britons recalls wartime solidarity and the "spirit of the Blitz".

Compromise? Time ticking down for UK on Brexit deal
Several leaders also said they would require assurances of good behaviour in return for another delay. The EU would welcome a move by Britain to keep close post-Brexit economic ties.
