Brexit Brief: Europe throws Theresa May, and the U.K., a lifeline

European Union leaders have given U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May until April 12 to find a new way forward for Brexit if her withdrawal agreement is rejected again by parliament next week, removing the threat of an imminent, chaotic exit for Britain on March 29.

After seven hours of talks in Brussels between May and the remaining 27 EU member states on Thursday, president of the European Council Donald Tusk said “the U.K. government will still have a choice of a deal, no-deal, a long extension or revoking Article 50”, The Times reported.

If May’s preferred deal is approved next week, the EU will give the government until May 22 to agree Brexit legislation.
