Juncker tells May to ‘SPEED UP’ divorce as Tory MPs demand PM quits | UK | News | Express.co.uk


The European Commission President is set to step down from his role after five years in charge on October 31, the same day Britain is due to finally leave the EU. Speaking at a “citizens’ dialogue” event in Sibiu, Romania, the eurocrat revealed he had told the Prime Minister to “speed up the process” to avoid clashing with his departure. Mr Juncker said: “I will stop my job on November 1 this year. In fact at midnight on October 31.

“The British are supposed to leave on October 31 and I told Theresa May, ‘I will leave at midnight so please speed up the process.”

Meanwhile, Mrs May is set to put a vote on her Brexit deal to MPs before the European Parliament elections.

The Prime Minister’s de facto deputy, David Lidington, has already confirmed Britain have run out of time to deliver Brexit and will now have to participate in the vote on May 23.

As cross-party talks with Jeremy Corbyn on the brink of collapse, Mrs May is plotting to give MPs a fourth major vote on her hated deal.
