British PM defends Brxit delay in Parliament

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Thursday defended her decision to delay Brexit and seek a compromise exit plan with the opposition Labour Party.

The European Union has agreed to delay Brexit by up to six months to Oct. 31 while May seeks an agreement with Labour that she hopes will help get her thrice-rejected exit deal approved by parliament.

“This is not the normal way of British politics … Reaching an agreement will not be easy, because to be successful it will require both sides to make compromises,” May told parliament.

Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said the latest extension represented a “diplomatic failure” for the government but welcomed indications that May would be willing to compromise.
