LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Theresa May will not request a long delay to Brexit and there is a case for giving parliament a little more time to agree a way forward, a Downing Street source said on Wednesday.

May “won’t be asking for a long extension,” said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “There is a case for giving parliament a bit more time to agree a way forward.”

“But the people of this country have been waiting nearly three years now,” the source said. “They are fed up with parliament’s failure to take a decision and the PM shares their frustration.”
