May urged to delay Brexit

Could Brexit be delayed, or not happen at all?

With just 77 days to go, the Tory pro-European rebel Dominic Grieve has urged Theresa May to postpone the whole thing, if she loses next week’s crucial vote in the Commons on her deal.

The Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said the deep divisions in the Commons had increased the prospect of Brexit being halted altogether, warning that would be an “incredibly damaging breach of trust”.
