 Teresa May: The time to leave Europe will depend on the decision of the British Parliament.


After the EU Special Summit, Teresa May returned to London from Brussels in the early morning of November 11. That afternoon, Teresa May presented to the House of Commons the EUs decision on the extension of Britains exit from Europe.

She said that although the EU parties disagreed over the length of the extension, they agreed with Britains key claim that once the agreement was approved, the extension could be terminated. For example, if Britain could pass the agreement by May 22, it would not need to participate in the European Parliament elections and would officially leave Europe on June 1, she said. She quoted Tusk, the president of the European Council, as saying that the process of leaving Europe is now entirely in the hands of the British themselves.

Teresa May said that the choice before Britain was clear and the timetable was clear. It was necessary to speed up the pace and reach a consensus as soon as possible on agreements in the national interest. She said that for Britain, the cross-party dialogue is unusual, but it must be done for the national interest, and it will be restarted on the 11th. Opposition Labour leader Colbin responded that the cross-party dialogue was serious, meticulous and sustained. But he stressed that the government must compromise. European Union leaders held a special summit in Brussels on October 10 to discuss Britains de-European issue. After hours of closed-door discussions, 27 EU members agreed to extend Britains de-EU period until October 31 this year. In a statement, the European Council said that Britain could not undermine the normal operation of the European Union and its institutions until October 31. If Britain does not ratify the de-European agreement by May 22, it must participate in the European Parliament elections in accordance with EU law.
