Theresa May: Brexit delay is a matter of great personal regret
Prime Minister Theresa May has admitted her "personal regret" to the nation for the delay to Britain’s departure from the European Union. Mrs May has also called for MPs to back her Brexit withdrawal agreement after European Council president Donald Tusk said he thought a short delay to the process "would be possible”. Speaking at 10 Downing Street, Mrs May said: “Nearly three years have passed since the public voted to leave the European Union. It was the biggest democratic exercise in our countries history. I came to office on a promise to deliver on that verdict.

“In March 2017 I triggered the Article 50 process for the UK to exit the EU. And Parliament supported it overwhelmingly.
“Two years on, MPs have been unable to agree on how to implement the UK’s withdrawal.
“As a result, we will now not leave on time with a deal on the 29 March.
“This delay is a matter of great personal regret for me and for this I am absolutely sure, you the public, have had enough.
“You are tired of the infighting. You’re tired of the political games and the arcane procedural rows. Tired of MPs talking about nothing else but Brexit when you have real concerns about our children’s schools, our National Health Service, knife crime.PROMOTED STORY

“You want this stage of the Brexit process to be over and done with. I agree. I am on your side. It is now time for MPs to decide.”
Mrs May added: “Today I have written to Donald Tusk the President of the European Council to request a short extension of Article 50, up to June 30, to give MPs the time to make a final choice.
“Do they want to leave the EU with a deal which delivers on the result of the referendum?
“Which takes back our money, borders and laws, while protecting jobs and our national security.
“Do they want to leave without a deal? Or do they not want to leave at all? Causing potentially irreparable damage to public trust, not just in this generation of politicians, but to our entire democratic process. It is high time we made a decision.”

On Wednesday Mrs May told MPs she intends to table her withdrawal agreement for a third time in the Commons, in the hope of overturning massive defeats inflicted on it in January and March.
In a letter to European Council president Donald Tusk, Mrs May said it remains the Government's policy to take the UK out of the EU "in an orderly manner" on the basis of the Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration agreed in November and supplemented by documents agreed with Mr Juncker last week.
Speaking in the Commons, she said: “The Government intends to bring forward proposals for a third meaningful vote. If that vote is passed, the extension will give the House time to consider the Withdrawal Agreement Bill. If not, the House will have to decide how to proceed. But as Prime Minister, I am not prepared to delay Brexit any further than June 30."
Responding to Mrs May, Mr Tusk said: “In the light of the consultations that I have conducted over the past days, I believe that a short extension would be possible.

"But it would be conditional on a positive vote on the withdrawal agreement in the House of Commons. The question remains open as to the duration of such an extension."
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn accused Mrs May of "running down the clock" on Brexit. He told the Commons: "This Government has led the country and themselves into crisis, chaos and division.”
The Labour Party leader pulled out of opposition talks with the Prime Minister on Wednesday after members of the breakaway Independent Group turned up to the meeting.
Chuka Umunna, The Independent Group's spokesman, said it was "extraordinary behaviour in a national crisis" by the Labour leader.
A Labour spokesman said it was "not the meeting that had been agreed" and that they were in discussions with No 10 about a separate bilateral meeting between Mr Corbyn and Mrs May.

The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
