May seeks Brexit aid
BRUSSELS: British Prime Minister Theresa May has launched a rescue mission for her ailing Brexit deal after the EU rebuffed her request to sweeten the divorce agreement.
EU leaders in Brussels have shown little appetite to resolve the Brexit impasse, saying the UK parliament must make up its mind. The choice was either back the Brexit agreement or send Britain tumbling out of the bloc in March without a deal. Ms May went to the EU summit seeking legally binding changes to the agreement, which is opposed by a majority of British politicians.
But the 27 EU leaders offered only reassurances on the existing deal.
