Brexit Could Be Delayed by Two Months Under Theresa May’s New Plans: Report

Brexit will be delayed for up to two months under new plans being considered by Prime Minister Theresa May, The Telegraph reports. May is reportedly considering the plan in a bid to avoid more resignations by ministers who are determined to support a plan to take a “no deal” on May's Brexit off the table this week. Downing Street officials have drawn up a series of options in order to avoid mass resignations. Those options include making a formal request to the European Union to delay Brexit if the Prime Minister cannot secure a deal by March 12, just 17 days before the UK is meant to leave the EU. As the Brexit crisis goes down to the wire, May said a so-called “meaningful vote” would not take place this week as was previously expected.
