Theresa May: Back me or risk losing Brexit altogether.

Theresa May: Back me or risk losing Brexit altogether. Theresa May is urging MPs to back a three-month Brexit postponement or face the threat of a much longer delay, in a desperate bid to persuade her pro-Leave rebels to back her withdrawal agreement next week. After a cabinet "gang of four" and several more ministers abstained and 17 backbenchers voted against the government in a Commons vote ruling out no deal, the Prime Minister has issued an ultimatum to Tory Brexiteers.

The European Union has agreed to Theresa May ’s request for a short delay to Brexit – but not the three-month extension to June 30 she had asked for . If the Commons once again votes down the agreement the EU is likely to call an emergency summit next week to possibly offer a longer delay .

The European Union has agreed to Theresa May’s request for a short delay to Brexit – but not the three-month extension to June 30 she had asked for.

According to a draft of the crunch EU summit’s conclusions, leaders from the remaining 27 nations have said the UK can extend Article 50, but just until May 22 – as long a MPs vote in favour of the PM’s deal next week.

The date is the day before European elections start.

The UK is due to leave the EU on March 29 – in just eight days time. If a deal is not signed, the legal default remains a no-deal Brexit on that date.

If the Commons once again votes down the agreement the EU is likely to call an emergency summit next week to possibly offer a longer delay.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.


€63,000 for patient who fell in toilet.
A woman has secured €63,000 damages at the High Court over negligence in her post-operative care at St James's Hospital in Dublin after the removal of a heart pacemaker. Concepta Anderson (58), of Sooey, Co Sligo, sued the hospital after she had an episode of syncope - heart stoppage leading to a blackout - and fell while in a hospital toilet on May 18, 2014. She was recovering from a procedure to remove her permanent pacemaker the previous day and awaiting the insertion of another. Ms Anderson suffered a head injury and has a permanent forehead scar as a result.
