LONDON Britains Parliament grabbed control Monday of the governments efforts to leave the European Union, challenging the countrys political traditions and inflicting on Prime Minister Theresa May a rebuke not suffered by any recent predecessor.
By stepping into the process known as Brexit and trying to define an alternative path, lawmakers could create a constitutional showdown in Britain, where the government normally controls the agenda in Parliament, especially on its most pressing issues.
Parliament passed an amendment giving itself the power to vote on alternatives to the governments Brexit plan. Its attempt to take control of the process came as Mrs. May prepared for a last-ditch effort to persuade lawmakers to support her withdrawal plan, which has already been rejected twice by huge margins.
Mrs. Mays grip on power is ebbing, with members of her cabinet openly discussing contradictory Brexit policies, rumors swirling of a plot to replace her and several of her Conservative Party lawmakers calling on her to name a date for her departure from power. She has already said she will not lead the party into the next general election scheduled for 2022.
The latest maneuvers come at the start of a week that was supposed to see Britain leaving the European Union, something that Mrs. May had promised more than 100 times would happen on March 29. Instead, Britain will remain at least until April 12, though what happens thereafter is anyones guess at the moment.

If Terri had any integrity she’d step down, but since she doesn’t, she won’t.
From the New York Times.... so i wonder of any of this is true??
May has been a disaster. But I dont know whether this is an improvement even though that would be a pretty low bar to get over. The globalists always seem to come up with a way to screw the British people.
I’ve figured for a good while that the March departure date was just a joke and that the globalists would never let it happen.
I hope they throw her out on her fat socialist bum.

There’s a George Bonanza to see you....(here it comes)
Led by a country that twice tried to destroy their country.
Pray for the freedom of Britain !
Why is a white infidel allowed to lead a moslem nation anyway?
Merkel,East Germany’s Favorite “Son”,is winning...which shouldn’t surprise anyone.
She’s now trying to broker her own resignation. Art of the steal.
She is a pathetic and weak loser. What a joke.
All she has to do is threaten Parliament with 8 consecutive hours of her dancing - they'll give her whatever she wants.
Is she giving a speech or something?
She looks like she’s walking onto the set of the David Letterman show or something.
She wasnt out there by the globalists she was out there by the Conservative Party.
