GRIMSBY, UK: Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday urged the EU to make “one more push” to get the Brexit deal over the line in time for Britain’s exit from the bloc in three weeks. The beleaguered leader’s request for an additional concession from Brussels comes with Britain on the brink of crashing out of the European Union after 46 years with very few arrangements in place. The British parliament is set to vote Tuesday on May’s existing deal with Brussels after rejecting it by a historic margin in January. But last-gasp negotiations between UK and EU envoys ended in acrimony on Wednesday and May still lacks the assurances she has been after to get her deal approved by MPs. May told an audience of factory workers in the North Sea fishing port of Grimsby that Britain may never split off from the other 27 nations if Brussels failed to help her now.
