European leaders have moved to head off British Prime Minister Theresa May’s bid to rewrite the Brexit divorce deal, warning they will not shift.
Having thrown out the exit deal May negotiated with the EU, divided British lawmakers voted on Tuesday to send her back to get an Irish border backstop clause removed.
May seized on this as a chance to prevent Britain crashing out of the European Union on March 29 without an agreement on the terms of the split, vowing to return to Brussels to demand changes to the text.
