United Kingdom asks European Union for Brexit delay till June 30

Theresa May Asks for Brexit Deadline Extension Until June 30

May demands 30 June Brexit extension, again

The opposition said the Government has failed to offer any compromises over Brexit following three days of talks.

Amid the continued uncertainty, Tusk is considering proposing an offer of a 12-month "flexible" extension to the Brexit date, the BBC reported on Friday, citing a senior European Union source.

Britons voted in 2016 by a 52 to 48 per cent margin for Brexit and the two main parties, parliament and the nation at large remain profoundly split over the terms for departure as well as over whether to leave at all.

However, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said this week that April 12 remained "the ultimate deadline", adding: "If it has not done so by then, no further short extension will be possible".

May criticised the bill and claimed it could lead to an "accidental" no-deal Brexit due to it constraining the government's ability to negotiate.

May said she's trying to agree a timetable for legislation with the Labour Party which will allow it to pass through Parliament in time for the elections to be canceled.

The Prime Minister May said it was "frustrating that we have not yet brought this process to a successful and orderly conclusion", adding that the United Kingdom government "remains strongly committed to doing so and will continue to act as a constructive and responsible member state of the European Union in according with the duty of honest cooperation throughout this unique period".

But an extension is not automatic, with France one of the European Union countries most cautious about agreeing to it.

Talks between Mrs May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn aimed at agreeing a way forward are set to continue today.

"We're genuinely going in with an open mind, but if it comes out of that process without the idea of a confirmatory ballot, I think we would have a bit of difficulty with our parliamentary party", Watson told BBC radio.

The competing visions of how to unwind Britain's 46-year involvement in the European project will be hashed out again at a summit in Brussels on Wednesday - a clash analysts said May is likely to lose.

Mr Corbyn said: "The Labour position is a customs union with the European Union, access to European markets and the retention of regulations for environment, consumers, and workplace rights as a base on which we can build - a dynamic relationship which means we can never fall below them".

Talks broke down before a second referendum was even mentioned, according to the Mirror.

May's "short extension" has longstanding problems, British political analyst Tom Fowdy told CGTN.

"It seems to be a good scenario for both sides, as it gives the United Kingdom all the necessary flexibility, while avoiding the need to meet every few weeks to further discuss Brexit extensions", the official said.

To avoid that outcome, May asked EU Council President Donald Tusk on Friday for an extension until June 30.

"Most of the colleagues that I am talking to accept we will need longer to complete this process".
