“Time is working against London in deciding whether to leave the EU, but it will be difficult to achieve a reasonable outcome in the face of opposition from the British Prime Minister and the parliament.” This opinion was expressed by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergey Zheleznyak.
According to the politician: “The British House of Commons made, perhaps, the only possible decision at this stage to postpone the country’s withdrawal from the EU. But this is only a pause, during which it is necessary to choose a further path of development. The parliamentarians understand that the exit option without an agreement, which is still not excluded, will lead to tough consequences for the UK and will have a negative impact on the citizens of the country. ”
The deputy noted: “In the event of a regular transfer of the Brexit deadlines, there can be a curious situation with elections to the European Parliament from the UK. At the same time, it is obvious that the leading EU countries with obvious irritation perceive the confrontation between the head of the British cabinet and the national parliament, which results in a slip in the divorce of London and Brussels, complicating their relations.
Mrs. May, as the main person in charge of Brexit, looks extremely weak and uncertain, losing political weight every day, both inside the country and in the eyes of European colleagues. ”
