Back to Brussels: Britain’s May Again Seeks EU Help on Brexit

British Prime Minister Theresa May goes back to Brussels on Thursday, seeking concessions in the unpopular agreement to withdraw Britain from the European Union after she survived a no-confidence vote.

May is meeting with EU leaders for the second time this week in order to try to save the Brexit deal after she halted a House of Commons vote that was widely expected to result in a rejection of the agreement.

So far, European leaders have expressed a desire to help Britain in some way, but have also made it clear they do not intend to renegotiate the terms the two sides worked out over the course of months of discussions.

EU leaders are meeting Thursday and Friday for a summit, and European Council President Donald Tusk said they will listen to May’s assessment of the situation before holding talks without her to “discuss the matter and adopt relevant conclusions.”

May’s Conservative Party voted 200-117 Wednesday to keep her in power and prevent another leadership challenge for a year. In a closed meeting with Conservative lawmakers before the vote began, May said she would step down as Britain’s leader before the anticipated 2022 election, a move that might have helped win over some lawmakers who were undecided going into the secret ballot.
