British PM May tries to plot a course out of the Brexit maelstrom

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION British Prime Minister Theresa May will chair a five-hour cabinet meeting on Tuesday (April 2) in an attempt to plot a course out of the Brexit maelstrom as she comes under pressure to either leave the European Union without a deal or call an election.

May's deal has been defeated three times by the lower house of the British parliament, which failed on Monday (April 1) to find a majority of its own for any alternative to her deal.

May is expected to try to put her deal to a fourth vote this week.

The deadlock has already delayed Brexit for two weeks beyond the planned exit date of March 29 and May is due to chair hours of cabinet meetings in Downing Street in a bid to find a way out of the maze.

If May cannot get her deal ratified by parliament, then she has a choice between leaving without a deal, calling an election or asking the EU for a long delay to negotiate a Brexit deal with a much closer relationship with the bloc.
