Pressure mounts on Theresa May to quit after failure to seal final Brexit plan

UK, EU, agree on new Brexit deadline date

The British prime minister who spoke about her European withdrawal deal in the House of Commons on Wednesday said she has the support of her Cabinet and is determined to deliver Brexit.

According to Aljazeera, prominent conservatives have called on Mrs May to step down immediately instead of bringing the bill forward.

May’s offer represents the final throw of the dice for a prime minister who has run out of options.

Almost three years after the U.K. voted to exit the EU, May’s deal has been rejected three times by Parliament.
