two days Ago, on 20. March, has underlined the British Prime Minister, in a letter to EU Council President Donald Tusk to the will of their government to leave the European Union "due process". To achieve this, she asked for an extension of time for a corresponding official Declaration until 30. June, so three months on the previously fixed date and the date of the 29. March,.
The EU-27 has declined to on Thursday evening. It has set instead of two shorter periods: Should the reject house of the negotiated contract in the coming week once again, there is only one extension of up to 12. April.

Suddenly, the Europe would have stood of the 27 under a day-to-growing pressure of time, because Britain had not declared his exit, still, would, then, be more a member of the EU, but not represented in Parliament.
Theresa May could new conditions
A legally and politically untenable situation. With each passing day, the closer to the 3. July approaches, would have been May or can you provide the following under the house to the Europe of the 27 new conditions, such as the back stop relating to the last of the pressure medium in the Background to take back to the withdrawal of the request. The result would be a non-quorate Parliament, whose election is to be declared in may to be invalid, because the UK is not represented properly.
