No-deal Brexit or "short" delay? British PM May offers lawmakers a choice

System.scripts.

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday (February 26) offered lawmakers the chance to vote in just over two weeks time on whether to delay Brexit or go for a potentially disorderly no-deal exit from the European Union if her attempt to ratify a divorce deal fails.

May promised lawmakers that if they do not approve a revised Brexit deal by March 12, she will give them a vote on whether to leave without a deal.

If they reject that, parliament will vote on March 14 on whether to seek a "short, limited extension" to the Article 50 negotiating period.

Opening up the possibility of taking a no-deal off the table marks one of the biggest turning points in the United Kingdom's labyrinthine Brexit crisis since the shock 2016 referendum vote to leave the EU.
