In the United Kingdom, lawmakers have asked the European Union for more time to craft a Brexit plan, after they failed to reach agreement on how to exit the EU ahead of a March 29 deadline. Under the plan, Britain would see a short delay to Brexit if lawmakers agree to a plan by next Wednesday, or a longer delay if they’re unable to craft a plan immediately. The plan for a so-called Brextension still has to be approved by EU leaders in Brussels. On Thursday, lawmakers overwhelmingly rejected a measure to allow a second people’s referendum on Brexit.
