As PM May Pushes Britain Towards Brexit Delay, EU Leaders Expect Something in Return


Theresa May’s announcement of a series of votes to come in March has made a full, so-called ‘no-deal’ Brexit a near impossibility and Parliament voting to cancel Brexit day an almost certainty,

but European leaders speaking Wednesday say they will only permit a deviation from the agreed schedule if it means the United Kingdom bringing something new to the table.

France’s Emmanuel Macron and Germany’s Angela Merkel met in Paris Wednesday to discuss topics including Franco-German defence and Brexit,

both leaving the meeting and remarking in a press conference that followed that they would be willing to permit the British establishment to further delay Brexit.
