Brexit up in the air, May faces possible plot

Even more Brexit disarray for the UK on Sunday (March 24) as Prime Minister Theresa May faced a possible plot by lawmakers to topple her and her parliament.

They're allegedly preparing to snatch control of Britain's EU departure from the hands of the government.

Britain's Sunday Times newspaper cited 11 senior lawmakers who are supposedly seeking to oust her.

Warning that she has become a toxic and erratic figure whose judgment has - quote - "gone haywire." May's allies insist she is still in charge of the country and the only way to alleviate the impasse is for parliament to ratify May's twice-defeated divorce deal.

Her finance chief says changing prime minister wouldn't help and her de-facto deputy says he doesn't want the top job.

This latest piece of Brexit turmoil comes a day after hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of London to demand a second referendum.

And no Brexit at all is looking increasingly likely after May revealed last week that the UK's departure would not be on March 29 - and secured a delay in talks with the bloc.

That new date is May 22 - but only if parliament rallies behind the her and she passes her deal.

If she can't - Britain will have until April 12 to offer a new treaty - or decide to leave the EU without one at all.

Lawmakers are set to debate potential next steps on Monday (March 25).

They'll vote on a number of possible alternatives to the government's deal.

These amendments would not be legally binding though.
