British PM Doesn't Change Demands in Talks with EU after Her Brexit Plan's Overwhelming Defeat

  • British Prime Minister Theresa May has reportedly not made any changes in the discussions with the EU leaders. May’s actions are surprising as it comes after the overwhelming defeat of the Brexit Plan at Parliament of the United Kingdom. Citing unnamed senior European Union diplomatic sources, the report claimed that Theresa May is still focusing on her previous demands. These included legally binding time-limit for the Irish ‘backstop’, Britain’s right for unilateral withdrawal, and a trade deal finalization commitment prior to 2021.
