United Kingdom premier wants more time to solve Brexit impasse

"Both sides want a Brexit deal that supports ongoing friendship between UK/EU/France so patience and goodwill on backstop now the critical ingredient", he tweeted.
After losing the House of Common's support over her negotiated deal with the European Union last month, May found herself swinging back and forth on her next move with the March deadline for her country's withdrawal from the EuropeanUnion fast approaching.
May updated parliament following a series of last-gasp meetings held in Belfast, Brussels, and Dublin despite European Union leaders' insistence that they will not renegotiate the deal they had already struck with her.
Main opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbynsaid May had come to parliament Tuesday with "excuses and delays" and accused her of trying to "play chicken with people's livelihoods".
Britain's lead Brexit negotiator Olly Robbins has said lawmakers face a choice between May's exit deal or a long extension of the March 29 deadline, according to reports.
Addressing MPs in the House of Commons, May said she was not yet ready to put an alternative Brexit deal before parliament, saying it may take time to get a revised deal from Brussels.
"Talks are now at a crucial stage and we must all hold our nerve", May said, adding she believes Britain can reach a deal that will have the support of Parliament, and also honor the result of the 2016 referendum when British votes backed leaving the EU.
The UK and EU made a commitment to avoid physical barriers or checks on the border if no UK-EU trade deal is agreed before the Brexit transition period ends.
Yet again, this wouldn't amount to binding legal assurances but they are merely political commitments created to offer some leeway in the current Brexit withdrawal agreement.
Brexiteer MPs in her Conservative Party are particularly unhappy with the so-called backstop provision meant to keep the border with Ireland free-flowing.
The EU has ruled out reopening the withdrawal agreement but signalled that changes might be possible to the political declaration that sketches out the UK's future relationship.
The political impasse leaves Britain lurching toward a chaotic no-deal departure that could be costly for businesses and ordinary people in both the United Kingdom and the EU. The prime minister, if she went through the lobbies for this tomorrow night, would be voting against the guarantees she has given in the Commons for months [that no-deal remains an option]. "She is playing for time and playing with people's jobs, our economic security and the future of our industry".
Asked whether the comments reflect Government policy, Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: 'No.
Cooper said her bill would require May and parliament to resolve by the middle of March whether Britain is leaving the European Union with a deal, leaving without a deal or seeking an extension to the deadline.
The Brexit uncertainty is beginning to be felt across the economy.
An ERG MP said many of its members were "not minded to support such a clumsily worded motion" that effectively ruled out a no-deal Brexit. Figures released Monday showed that Britain's economy slowed previous year to its joint-slowest annual rate since 2009, with business investment declining for four straight quarters.
