UK Prime Minister Theresa May seeks ‘one more push’ from European Union on Brexit

Grimsby: Prime Minister Theresa May called on the European Union on Friday to make “one more push” to get the Brexit deal over the line in time for the Britain’s exit from the bloc in three weeks. The beleaguered British leader’s request for an additional concession from Brussels comes with Britain on the brink of hurtling out of the EU after 46 years with very few arrangements in place.

The British parliament is set to vote Tuesday on May’s existing deal with Brussels after rejecting it by a historic margin last month. But last-gasp negotiations between UK and EU envoys ended in acrimony on Wednesday and May still lacks the assurances she has been after from Brussels to get her deal through. May told an audience of factory workers in the northeastern fishing town of Grimsby that Britain may never split off from the other 27 nations if Brussels failed to help her now.
