Demands for Theresa May to quit over ‘abject surrender’ Brexit delay
Theresa May has insisted leaving the EU in an ‘orderly way’ will be the best Brexit for the UK

If no extension was granted, then Britain faced the prospect of crashing out of the European Union this Friday with no deal, a scenario that in Parliament worry would lead to a deep recession as tariffs are imposed on United Kingdom exports and other restrictions on trade are imposed.
Before the Brussels summit, Mrs May had told leaders she wanted to move the UK's exit date from this Friday to 30 June, with the option of leaving earlier if Parliament ratified her agreement.
The officials spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss the closed-door negotiations.
"EU27 has agreed an extension", of the negotiating period, European Council President Donald Tusksaid on Twitter. The British Parliament has repeatedly rejected a withdrawal deal negotiated with the European Union, leading to today's deadlock over Britain's long-awaited departure. It means that it gives May more time to try and pass her withdrawal agreement in parliament.
The withdrawal agreement already has been rejected three times by the House of Commons, forcing May to scramble to find common ground with the main opposition Labour Party. Those efforts had yet to achieve a breakthrough, though the two sides said they would resume discussions Thursday.
She added: "The Brexitdelay that the European Union has agreed gives Westminster's village a pause, a moment to take a breath, and maybe to take stock".
BBC political editor Laura Keunssberg said the slight pause in the Brexit crisis might mean MPs will return "clear-headed and ready for compromise" in 10 days' time.
Theresa May speaks during Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons
May continues to believe that her deal is better than any compromise agreement she is likely to strike with Labour - and unlike such a deal, it has the backing of her cabinet. Economists and business leaders have warned that a no-deal Brexit would lead to huge disruptions in trade and travel, with tariffs and customs checks triggering gridlock at British ports and possible shortages of goods.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the second Brexit extension in the space of a fortnight represents "not only a diplomatic failure, but is another milestone in the government's mishandling of the entire Brexit process".
Perhaps she might judge on this year's walking break that enough is enough, and one of them should be given the chance to push Brexit over the line: but her resilience and staying-power are, of course, legendary.
Mr Peston said he had spoken with several of Mr McDonnell's colleagues, including those who are sceptical of a second referendum, and he had arrived at this conclusion. Scottish National Party Nicola Sturgeon said in a tweet after the extension was granted that the British people should be allowed to "decide if they still want to leave".
The Conservative MP also said: "the only way this will get through is if she gets an amendment to the Northern Ireland amendment, instead of the backstop that keeps us in forever".
Challenging her in the Commons, Brexiteers questioned whether the Prime Minister understood the level of "anger" across the country after having "broken promises 100 times" on not pushing back the date of the UK's withdrawal from the EU.
