Merkel says backs longer Brexit delay than London seeking

Merkel says backs longer Brexit delay than London seekingGerman Chancellor Angela Merkel said Wednesday that she was open to giving Britain more time to arrange its exit from the EU than the June 30 departure London is seeking. Merkel told Germany’s parliament ahead of a special EU summit in Brussels dedicated to Brexit that leaders may well agree to a delay “longer than the British prime minister (Theresa May) has requested”. “I am of the opinion, the German government is of the opinion, that we should give both (British) parties a reasonable amount of time” to reach an agreement on an orderly Brexit, she said.

Thousands of Brexit protesters flood the streets of London calling for new referendum

Thousands of Brexit protesters flood the streets of London calling for new referendumAs the tire fire that is Theresa May's handling of Brexit continues to burn, a crowd pegged at around a million people flooded the streets of London on Saturday, protesting the disastrous policy and calling on a new referendum. SEE ALSO: John Oliver shares his thoughts on Brexit and we honestly don't know whether to laugh or cryWhile the option of a second referendum on Brexit was once seen as highly unlikely, there's now a semblance of hope for those backing the vote. Prime Minister May has bungled the process and is faced with a variety of dubious options, including a yet-again delayed exit or even a no-deal Brexit that would have serious ramifications.Dubbed "Put It To The People," Saturday's march saw around a million people participate, organizers said. The event also included a rally in front of Parliament. London Mayor Sadiq Khan was among those marching and he was scheduled to speak at the post-march rally. > And we're off! > > Here in London, thousands of people from across our city and country have come together with @peoplesvote_uk to send a clear message: > > Enough is enough – it's time to give the British public the final say on Brexit.

It's reflective of the infighting that's taken place in Parliament, leaving that body of government in a deadlock with no plan in place for an exit. Despite Saturday's enormous protest, odds of a second referendum are still long thanks to the hurdles that need to be cleared — including approval from that deadlocked Parliament, a decision on what, exactly, the referendum would be a vote on, and negotiating a timetable on the vote. Madness is an understatement when it comes to the Brexit messImage: Getty ImagesLondon was flooded Saturday with protesters and their signs, calling on a new Brexit vote as Teresa May flirts with disaster.Image: Getty ImagesFor now, it's a wait-and-see situation for everyone. The EU has given May until April 12 to get a deal passed by Parliament. The protesters were not kind to May.Image: Getty ImagesFailure to get a deal done will mean either a no-deal Brexit or May will have to propose yet another alternative before that deadline. And, with that, yet another journey into the unknown for the UK.  WATCH: Google fined $ 1.7 Billion by European Union for handicapping competitors
