With a new deadline to reach an agreement, the Brexit crisis was extended until October 31 without any guarantee of an agreed exit with the European Union (EU).
A divorce already postponed twice, pointing to his first failure on March 29, the day that the United Kingdom officially had to leave the EU block after invoking Article 50 of the Treaty.
The Brexit Party grows
As the crisis spreads with the European Union (EU) new parties begin to take forces in the British political spectrum.
This is how the Brexit Party of Nigel Farage, ex-leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), threatens to add the votes of the probrexit and at the same time critics of May.
According to a YouGov poll, 27% of Britons would back Farage's formation in the European elections, followed by Labor with 22% and in third place the Conservative Party with 15%.
Other collectives such as the Green Party (10%), the Liberals with (9%) or the UKIP (7%) would maintain a wealth of votes, highlighting the Change UK group which although in line with 6%, represent the deputies independent that have renounced the Labor Party and the conservative for their differences with the leadership on Brexit.
There was no Brexit that time nor on April 12, the second deadline for the British Parliament to reach a consensus on exit conditions.
The extension agreed by the 27 member countries of the EU, in turn became an oxygen ball for Prime Minister Theresa May, whose government has seen frustrated all its attempts to advance its 'brexit' project.
After May's proposal to the House of Commons sank, being rejected on January 15 with 423 votes against and 202 in favor – the worst result of a British government in recent history – the leader of the Conservative Party He was forced to seek support from all political forces.
The first interpelados have been the brexiteers in his party, defenders of a hard brexit and a real headache for the president to be key votes to approve any project. While it has come to add to some of these, it has not been enough to pass your proposal.
Given this, May opened negotiations with the opposition Labor Party, a desperate measure to get out of the stalemate that keeps the country in suspense.
The meeting between May and the labor leader, Jeremy Corbyn, which ended without concrete results, increased the tensions among the conservatives, worried that a pact with the opposition would weaken the Tories more and favor the return of the Social Democrats to power.
Meanwhile, from Brussels warned London that there will be a new deadline for his departure. In that sense the president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, said that if an exit agreement is not approved before the new date expires, "there will be a hard brexit that we prefer to avoid".
On the other hand, May remains firm before the rumors on a call to new elections after Holy Week.
On this, Downing Street made clear this week that it will not call early elections, a desired option from Labor and weighed by the sectors most critical of May within the Conservative Party.
'The longer we stay, the greater the risk that we will never leave (…) that is why it is essential to comply with what people voted',
FIRST MINISTER OF THE UNITED KINGDOM
The only clear certainty in the midst of the crisis is that it will continue for at least six more months, in an agreement that commits the United Kingdom to participate in the European elections from May 23 to 26.
Although the Conservatives declined to participate in the elections, the electoral appointment could become a thermometer of the political situation on the British island, where Labor and the new Brexit party of Nigel Farage, are projected as the main winners.
