Theresa May – Brexit
Feb 2019 May
THERESA May will today urge MPs to “hold our nerve” over Brexit talks as she pleads with them for more time to get a new deal sealed. Ahead of another crunch set of crucial Commons debates on Thursday, the PM will beg her own MPs to give her more time to get an agreement that can be passed in the Commons. She will tell them that talks are at a “crucial stage” but only by standing firm will we get the changes needed to get Brexit done on time – by March 29.

“I’m surprised that you are here. You were fighting for the exit. The British people voted for the exit.

Juncker addressed MEPs at the European Parliament for the first time after the United Kingdom chose to leave the European Union in a referendum on Thursday (23 June). UKIP leader Nigel Farage also delivered a speech, in which he reminded MEPs that he started leading the Brexit campaign 17 years ago. “When I came here 17 years ago and I said that I wanted to lead a campaign to get Britain to leave the EU, you all laughed at me. I have to say you’re not laughing now, are you?” the UKIP leader said. “Virtually none of you have ever done a proper job in your lives or worked in business or worked in trade or indeed ever created a job,” he added.
