Theresa May Asks The EU For A Brexit Extension Until June 30

Theresa May has confirmed this evening she is asking the EU for a Brexit extension until June 30 and implored MPs to back her deal before voters lose faith in Parliament.

In an abrupt statement inside No.10 this evening Theresa May said it was a matter of 'great personal regret' the country would not be leaving the EU on time with a deal on March 29.

The Prime Minister also attacked MPs for failing to make headway with Brexit and said it was 'high time' politicians made a decision.
