MPs want to extend the deadline past the current one of March 29 to allow more time for a smoother exit from the EU.
While some hope it’ll give more time for Theresa May to negotiate further with European leaders, others hope a delay will lead to a rethink of the whole process.
Any delay to the process would have to be approved by the EU
Speaking to Premier, Stephen Timms, a Christian and the Labour MP for East Ham suggested at this late stage, a delay in inevitable.
He said: “I think it’s clear that we just don’t have time, whatever happens to get it all sorted out by the end of this month.
“So we must go to the European Union to make it clear we want to extend the deadline. They will want to know the reason.
“I think there is a strong case for us to have quite a long extension rather than a short extension, for example, to allow us to hold a further public vote because it may well be but the only way now that we can resolve the situation that we’re in.”
Timms also addressed criticism that MPs haven’t been able to deliver the will of the British public,
“Yes, I do understand that,” he said. “It’s the result unfortunately of the fact that there was absolutely no plan for leaving the EU in place when article 50 was triggered two years ago. I think people thought there must have been some idea about what the basis for our departure was going to be. But it turns out…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
