Since June of 2016, the United Kingdom has been wanting to leave the EU in a movement entitled Brexit. British Prime Minister Theresa May is delaying her vote on the Brexit deal that is going to be decided on March 29, 2019.  Now, members of her own party have openly stated that would vote against May. Both Britains and American stock markets crashed upon news of the Brexit crisis.

European Commission President Donald Tusk said, “We will not renegotiate the deal, including the backstop, but we are ready to discuss how to facilitate UK ratification.” He also states that he will discuss preparedness for a no- deal scenario, but it trying to avoid that at all costs. Jeremy Corbyn leader of the Labour Party, the opposition of Brexit, questions if May could get a deal better than the one the government has spent two years negotiating.

Anger stems more because the people were expecting the government to vote on it. “The government has gone and run away and hidden in the toilets,” Conservative Mark Francois said. The government has lost control and is in complete disarray and no matter when a new deal is made, it still won’t fix the flaws. The people in favor of Brexit want a clean and complete break from the EU where the people opposed to Brexit would cause economic problems for Britain with no benefits. The House of Commons has said that the deadline for a meaningful vote in Parliament is March 28, the day before the Britain is set to leave the EU.
