A happy St Patrick's Day — Lionel Birnie
“I just happen to think that I’d rather live in a country with its hands outstretched to the world, palms facing upwards ready to shake hands or offer help, rather than one standing with its arms folded saying, ‘Who are you and what do you want?’”

Brexit 'Could Be Delayed' To Give UK More Time For A Better Deal, Brexit Select Committee Set To Urge
Britain is so unprepared for Brexit that Theresa May should consider postponing the UK’s leaving date, an influential committee of MPs is expected to declare.

In a move that has infuriated Tory MPs, the Commons Brexit Select Committee is set to recommend that the PM should request an extension to the EU’s Article 50 process beyond next March, HuffPost UK has been told.

The idea of delaying the process beyond the official withdrawal date of March 29, 2019, is seen as so inflammatory that Conservative members of the Committee have refused to sign off the proposal and have tabled their own minority report instead.
The Select Committee’s highly confidential report, due to be published on Sunday morning, has bitterly divided its members, some insiders claim.

In approving the final report, seven pro-Leave Tories and DUP MP Sammy Wilson were outvoted by their 11 colleagues, including Labour, Tory, SNP, Lib Dem and Plaid Cymru members.
