Theresa May has asked the EU for "one more push" to get her Brexit deal through Parliament and warned that, if it fails, "we may never leave at all".

Oh well, isn't that what some have been hoping for? (*seeks cover and ducks away*)

This quote is for TM (inspired by recent news):

Quote from: Winston S. Churchill
If you are going through hell, keep going.
N'importe, l'amitié féminine repose le
mieux de la solitude, elle nous complète.

That Churchill quote was for the people, as was he- for the people. May is not. And will never be.

He also said "I never ‘worry’ about action, but only about inaction" which is more apt to May.
Life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves

Prime Minister Theresa May is writing to the EU to formally ask for Brexit to be postponed.

One ministerial source told the BBC the longer delay could be up to two years, amid reports of a cabinet row, but No 10 said no decision had been made.

EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said the EU would not grant a delay without a "concrete plan" from the UK about what they would do with it.

17.4 million voters cannot be wrong, can they? Second referendum - now!

Second referendum - now!

Doubtful to happen right now.
To me it looks like a "delay" might be happening and more negotiations...

Even Labour (opposition) stated that currently they are not in favour of a new referendum. (That might change in the face of a re-election or something.)
