As election day ticks closer for Britain, the British Prime Minister is feeling nothing short of a burn, with Senior Conservatives pushing her to set out her plans for leaving as soon as this week. A promise she vowed to fulfil if the referendum did not pass parliament.
May has been publicly against holding another referendum, stating that if Labour talks fail, then parliament will asked to decide on a number of ways to break the impasse — such options remain undecided.
EU bureaucrats have worked overtime to make Britain’s exit from the Union as difficult and damaging as possible. Their primary goal has always been to derail Brexit. Their secondary goal is to send a warning message to other EU member states that might seek to follow in the Brits’ footsteps.
It’s been 20 years since the end of the Kosovo War. And more than 10 years since Kosovo’s official independence in 2008. But Serbia has yet to recognise its neighbour’s rights.

It’s looking like it is never going to happen. No matter how many attempts she makes, British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit divorce deal just won’t be accepted by parliament.
If not for the machinations of powerful vested interests, the UK would have amicably parted ways with the EU by 29 March. This was, after all, what the majority of voters decided in the 23 June 2016 referendum.
Friday, 29 March saw MPs reject May’s deal for a third time. Downing Street has clarified that she will be bringing the deal back to the Commons for a fourth vote — perhaps on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Well, the day is finally here. 29 March, 2019…the original Brexit Day. But, thanks to the agonising indecisiveness of a heavily divided British Parliament, the UK’s ties with the EU won’t be undone just yet.
Maybe they were given too many choices. After all, you wouldn’t expect a group of children staring through the glass at eight different flavours of ice cream to reach consensus on a single dessert choice, would you?
European leaders have begrudgingly offered the UK several weeks to ease itself out of the bloc. If all had gone according to plan — and voters’ wishes — the UK would be exiting the EU in an orderly fashion next Friday.

If UK Prime Minister Theresa May only had the wisdom to listen to US President Donald Trump’s advice, the Brexit negotiations would have been long over. The UK would be free of the EU’s control over its trade and immigration policies. And the world could move on.
Just two weeks from now, the Brexit process should have been done and dusted. But 29 March, the deadline for completing the UK’s divorce from the EU, will come and go with no action taken at all. Lots of talking, sure. But zero results.
Ever since the majority of Brits voted to part ways with the EU, vested interests — the deep state, if you will — are intent to derail the process and keep the UK as a vassal state to the European Union.

We admit we thought it would never happen. And it might not. But British Prime Minister Theresa May’s tenacity on Brexit negotiations — and renegotiations — with the EU and with her own parliament could just see Brexit go through after all. Maybe…
EU and British negotiators, still deadlocked on Brexit details, would do well to look towards Australia and the local wine industry lobbyists. They might even consider pouring a few glasses before returning to the negotiating table.
With May’s most recent loss in the Commons over her revised divorce deal, and a conglomerate of MPs who refuse to support a no-deal Brexit, it’s looking like the globalists may actually achieve what they’re after.
US President Donald Trump instantly saw Guaido as a fit leader for Venezuela, but EU members were hesitant to accept him due to his self-declaration as temporary leader.
