Macron says no-deal Brexit if British MPs reject May's plan again

Should that happen, Tusk said no extraordinary European Union summit would be needed next week before the current Brexit date.

After receiving a letter from May asking for a short extension to Brexit - that would not go beyond June 30, three months on from the original departure date - European Council president Donald Tusk yesterday said he thought EU leaders would agree to it.

Mrs May said she would be trying to secure support from colleagues in the Northern Irish DUP and other opposing MPs for her deal.

May told Tusk that despite the ruling "it remains my intention to bring the deal back to the House".

The bloc is tired of Britain's political soap opera over Brexit.

"European elections have to be held if the extension date is beyond May 23".

Opposition politicians think the only way forward is an early election that could rearrange Parliament and break the political deadlock. She needs to win over at least 75 lawmakers to get it through. "She won't ask them!"

"In the case of a negative British vote then we'd be heading to a no deal".

He said that Brexiters had made several compromises, including accepting a 21-month transition period and a "divorce bill", but "what we couldn't compromise on was not taking back our independence and being free to control our own affairs".

Hardliners saw Theresa May's "Chequers plan" as a betrayal of the referendum result and the influential ERG tried to oust her by triggering a vote of no confidence in December, which she survived by 200 votes to 117.

Do they want to leave without a deal? French president Emmanuel Macron has adopted an even tougher line, saying he would block a delay in any circumstances.

Under EU rules, participation in the European Parliament elections must be confirmed by 11 April, creating a hard deadline beyond which a longer extension would become impossible.

So far, Parliament has done everything possible to avoid making a choice.

Patriots reportedly interested in free-agent WR Jordy Nelson
Nelson, who turns 34 in May, has been released in consecutive offseasons after the Green Bay Packers let him go last spring. Nelson's peak was interrupted by a torn ACL in 2015, otherwise he may have had four straight 1,200-plus yard seasons.

"As she said last night parliament has expressed its views about what it does not want, but has been unable to agree on what it does want".

Peter Bone, from the European Research Group of hard Brexiteer Tories, told the PM: 'If you continue to apply for an extension you will be betraying the British people.

Exhausted of MPs talking about nothing else but Brexit when you have real concerns about our children's schools, our National Health Service, and knife crime. May's Conservative Party caucus.

Fuming Labour MP Bill Esterton tweeted: "Is that it?"

She has failed twice to gain support for a deal she negotiated with Brussels about the terms of Britain's departure and future relationship with the European Union, not least because of fierce opposition to it within her own Conservative Party - but still has a week to put this to MPs a third time.

Asked about the suggestion May's speech had put lawmakers at risk, her spokeswoman said: "I would flatly reject that".

She added: "We will, despite these measures we have taken, work until the last day - I will say until the last hour - to ensure that this emergency planning doesn't come into effect".

"Motion after motion and amendment after amendment has been tabled without Parliament ever deciding what it wants".

The European commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, said the situation would "get easy" if MPs support the withdrawal agreement.

The British parliament is expected to vote on the EU-backed offer for the third time next week.

Sebastian Kurz, the Austrian chancellor, said: "If there is no support in the parliament, a no-deal scenario gets more realistic and that is not good for the United Kingdom and also not good for us in the European Union".

The Labour leader twice declined to rule out the option of halting Brexit by revoking the Article 50 letter informing Brussels of Britain's intention to quit.

Nandy had put forward a proposal which backed May's deal on the condition parliament has a greater say in the next phase of Brexit talks, but told ITV: "I will not support a government that takes such a unsafe, reckless approach to democracy".
