May press her plan ahead of Brexit Delay Vote
In Britain, legislators in two votes on Wednesday confirmed a broad agreement that the country should not leave the EU without a trade agreement in place. A vote on Tuesday had shattered Prime Minister Theresa Bay's latest proposal for such a plan, and the country left without a trade record before an expiry date of March 29.
The results give the UK little choice but to ask EU regulators for extension to their expiry deadline. This request is in itself a complicated effort, one that will require the approval of all 27 EU member states. An extension extension was allegedly set in late afternoon in London. The prime minister had requested an early afternoon meeting in his cabinet, and was supposedly set to attempt to strike through an agreement on her proposed Brexit plan before the departure delay vote.
