May told to resign over 'abject surrender' of Brexit delay

Economists say a no-deal Brexit could lead to a deep recession as tariffs and other barriers are imposed on United Kingdom exports and customs checks delay goods at British ports. The British Parliament has repeatedly rejected a withdrawal deal negotiated with the European Union, leading to today's deadlock over Britain's long-awaited departure.

Despite trading barbs, both May and Corbyn said they wanted to continue talks. It could lead to tariffs on trade between Britain and the European Union, customs checks that could cause gridlock at ports and shortages of essential goods.

Speaking at a campaign launch event in Coventry, he said their "mission" was to lead a "democratic revolution" against a political class which had betrayed the voters over Brexit.

"The Brexit Party is fortunate to have such a high calibre candidate but I am sorry that Annunziata has left the Conservative Party", he said. They rejected Theresa May's request for an extension until June 30 and instead set a Hallowe'en deadline for progress to be made, with a symbolic review in June.

"Please don't waste this time", Tusk told a news conference after eight hours of European Union leaders' talks on the matter.

European Council president Donald Tusk did not rule out further extensions, but said the October extension should be enough to find the "best possible solution".

"Instead of wasting more time, Labour must make clear to the Tories that the answer to the Brexit deadlock is to put the decision back to the people". Some European leaders favored a longer extension, but French President Emmanuel Macron was wary of anything more than a very short delay. These tensions - which have pervaded the party membership, discussion between MPs and even the cabinet and shadow cabinet - have made achieving political consensus on all sides particularly hard.

BREXIT will be delayed AGAIN until Halloween in fresh humiliation for Theresa May.

The former UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader was a leading light of the pro-Brexit camp in a bitterly divisive 2016 referendum that voted to pull Britain out of the European Union after almost half a century.

Pro-EU campaigners argue that politicians have failed and the next few months should be used to hold a new referendum on whether to leave the EU or remain.

The prime minister, appearing in the Commons after another late night round of negotiations in Brussels on Thursday, was accused of "abject surrender" by Brexiteer MP Sir Bill Cash.

By law, they had to reach a unanimous decision.

"We will be looking to take support from across the board and if we do that and if we succeed then I think Parliament will start to fear the electorate and gosh they need to, given this level of betrayal".
