May Under More Brexit Pressure

The British Prime Minister Theresa May is under growing pressure to delay Brexit.

She's is due to update the House of Commons later on how negotiations with the EU are going.

Some of her ministers are threatening to support a fresh attempt to delay our departure from the EU - if there's no agreement in place by March the 13th.

Amber Rudd, Greg Clark and David Gauke have publicly indicated that they could support a cross-party amendment to give parliament the power to stop the UK from leaving without a deal.

Britain's The Times reports that the three will resign if Mrs May does not guarantee that Brexit can be delayed if her deal is rejected again.

Meanwhile the British Labour Party says it will back a second EU referendum if MPs reject its alternative Brexit plan.

Emily Thornberry is the party's foreign spokesperson.

"For two years we've tried - we've put forward, we think, entirely reasonable ways in which we think that we can proceed - (that) we can leave the European Union doing minimal damage to our economy, and still delivering on Brexit in the way in which the people voted.

"But it's been really difficult dealing with this prime minister - she doesn't listen".
