The Theresa May of UK seeks respite from Brexit walking in Wales
British Prime Minister Theresa May is currently obtaining a respite from Brexit but there’s not any pause.
The prime minister’s Downing Street office said Monday that May and her husband, Philip, began a brief vacation on Saturday.
Britain’s Parliament is until April 23.
Asked whether May was considering another election, spokesman James Slack said:”No.”
Meanwhile, many of May’s Cabinet colleagues spent the rest raising their profiles before an anticipated leadership contest.
May has said though Parliament still deadlocked, it’s unclear when that might happen — she will resign after a divorce agreement has been ratified by Britain with the EU. Pro-Brexit members of the Party are already demanding for so far failing to take Britain she stopped.
Home Secretary Sajid Javid, one likely competitor, gave a speech on knife crime that stressed his origins and youth in a neighborhood.
Critics of the 27 remaining EU countries agreed last week to delay the deadline to get Brexit until Oct. 31 — the next extension the bloc has contributed Britain.
If Parliament does not approve May’s withdrawal plan, Britain faces an abrupt exit from that could result in a profound downturn as tariffs and other barriers are levied on U.K. exports and habits checks delay goods at British ports.
The government has held discussions with the opposition Labour Party that was left-of-center in an effort to locate. So far there has been no breakthrough, but discussions are ongoing.
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt — yet another possible successor to May — stated getting Brexit completed was the administration’s”absolute priority.”
“This is a focal point of, not only Theresa May, but the whole Cabinet,” Hunt told the BBC. “Everyone recognizes this. It is also exactly what the country wants as well.”
