Brexit Brief: EU tells Theresa May — it’s deal, or no deal

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s request for the EU to extend Britain’s scheduled exit from the bloc has been met with a stark ultimatum from Brussels: not unless you can get your Brexit deal through parliament.

May will travel to Brussels today after warnings from European Council President Donald Tusk that the EU might only approve the three-month delay to Brexit that May seeks if MPs first approve her divisive exit agreement, according to reports.

In her extension request letter to Tusk, May said she was “confident” that her Brexit deal will finally be approved by British lawmakers, signaling that she will effectively present parliament with a choice between her agreement and a no-deal Brexit, The Times reported.
