UK Cabinet secretly weighs eight-week Brexit delay

British Cabinet ministers have held secret talks on how to delay the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union, presently scheduled for March 29, Sputnik reports. 

The deal they seek would push Brexit back to May 24, British paper The Telegraph reported Tuesday night.


The publication reported the ministers hope to convince EU leaders to agree to a two-month-long "grace period," if Prime Minister Theresa May can get Parliament to pass a Brexit deal, to allow time for Parliament to deal with more necessary legislation.
