It’s become a complete farce:
The Prime Minister addressed the nation Wednesday evening, telling the British public that the country would not be leaving the European Union next week as promised.
The notification from the Prime Minister’s office of the last-minute address of the nation came after Theresa May wrote to the European Union asking for an extension of Article 50 — the political shorthand name for the negotiating period Britain has been engaged in for the past two years — before being almost immediately rejected.
While Brexit is meant to officially take place on March 29th — a date promised by the Prime Minister 108 times, according to the research of one member of Parliament — May has now requested an extension to June 30th, to give her extra time to force her controversial new negotiated relationship with the EU on the country.
Can she do this unilaterally: declare that Britain won’t be leaving on 29 March? Could she also declare that Britain will never leave the EU? After all, that’s what she was threatening a few days ago.
Theresa May is completely incompetent. The sooner she’s removed as Prime Minister the better. She’s out of her depth. Nigel Farage:
Mr Farage responded to the news that the UK would not be leaving the EU on March 29th — as pledged 108 times by Mrs May — saying it was an “appalling and pathetic performance from the Prime Minister. She rules out leaving with no deal. The Brexit betrayal is hers.”
