May offers MPs chance to delay Brexit – Channel 4 News


For months, Theresa May has ruled out any extension to the Brexit process. But today, in the face of opposition from within her own cabinet, she blinked.
She told the Commons that if MPs reject her Brexit deal next month, then they will get to vote on whether Britain should leave with no deal or have a short delay.
The concession came with the warning that delaying Brexit could bring about a “much sharper cliff-edge” just three months later.
Fresh from his own Brexit policy U-turn, the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said her policy was “grotesquely reckless”.
