British Prime Minister Theresa May has asked the EU for yet another extension to Brexit, saying the UK needs more time to avoid leaving the EU without a divorce deal. In a letter sent to European Council President Donald Tusk, May asked for the Brexit deadline to be delayed until up to June 30th. She said she still hoped to get Britain out of the EU before European elections in May, but said that London would make preparations to hold the elections if that’s not possible. Britain’s parliament remains deadlocked over the withdrawal agreement Theresa May secured with the EU.
