Why this French politician named her cat Brexit

UK prime minister Theresa May last week on Commonwealth Day

Downing Street confirmed that a letter would be sent to the EU Council President Donald Tusk on Tuesday or Wednesday, setting out the UK's request for an extension to Article 50 to delay Brexit, in the absence of an agreed deal.

Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan has been derailed in Parliament.

One minister told the BBC's Laura Kuenssberg there was "no agreement" around the cabinet table.

Meanwhile, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, hinted on Tuesday that Brussels will demand a clear answer to the question of how the government intends to proceed as the quid pro quo for granting an extension.

Prime Minister Theresa May could also introduce some changes to the non-binding Political Declaration on the future relationship between United Kingdom and the EU.

House of Commons Speaker John Bercow has scuppered any chance of another Commons vote on Theresa May's Brexit deal before Thursday's European Union summit. EU leaders will meet in Brussels at a European Council summit on Thursday to discuss the possibility of Britain delaying leaving the EU later than the scheduled date of March 29. However, it is not immediately known how long of an extension she will now ask for or what British parliament can agree on ahead of her meeting.

Loiseau expressed her frustration with the process the day after it was reported that she had named her cat Brexit because he was indecisive and reluctant to leave the house.

May's plan to ask MPs to vote for a third time on her Brexit deal this week has been torpedoed by John Bercow. He said last week's vote had been justified because the deal was altered after it was voted down by a record margin in January.

"I think it would be helpful to the House to have the earliest possible indication of how the Government intends to proceed in this important matter", Bercow responded.

Ardern, who flew to Christchurch on Saturday, said she had spoken to Trump, who had asked how he could help. The AR-15 was used at Port Arthur, as well as a number of high-profile mass shootings in the United States.

Nick Ferrari grilled Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay.

"We are really exhausted by these negotiations and I expect clear and precise proposals by the British government why such an extension is necessary", Germany's Europe Minister Michael Roth said as he arrived for talks in Brussels.

At a press conference this afternoon, the chief European Union negotiator said leaders will have to consider whether an extension will increase the chances of getting the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement approved by the UK Parliament.

He suggested ministers may need to prorogue Parliament and call a new session in order to get round the ruling.

Meanwhile, the European Council has adopted a series of contingency measures in the event of the United Kingdom leaving the EU without a deal. "For the British to decide nothing is to decide on a 'no-deal'".

Mr Barnier also warned that UK MPs voting against "no deal" would not prevent it from happening, saying that "everyone should now finalise all preparations for a no-deal scenario".

"He wakes me up every morning meowing to death because he wants to go out, and then when I open the door he stays put, undecided, and then glares at me when I put him out", she told the French paper, according to a translation by the UK Independent.

"We don't have that much time left".

Jeremy Corbyn met leaders of the other opposition parties, but declined to sign up to joint action on a Brexit alternative.
