May explains the agreement on the Brexit delay to reporters. If Parliament once again fails to approve her overall Withdrawal Agreement next week, Britain would either leave the EU with no deal on April 12 "or put forward an alternative plan."
If that alternative plan involved a further extension, it would mean taking part in elections to the European Parliament. She reiterated her opposition to that idea.
She plans to return to London on Friday and begin the process of persuading Members of Parliament to back her deal. "Tomorrow morning I will be returning to the UK and working hard” to push her deal over the line, May says.
She expressed a hint of contrition for the tone of her remarks in Downing Street yesterday, which came in for wide criticism.
“Last night I expressed my frustration, and I know that MPs are frustrated too. They have difficult jobs to do.”
