LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Teresa May puts his parliamentary prison party Braxis on Friday, trying to break the deadlock over the UK's exit from the European Union.

Legislators will vote on the 585 EU withdrawal agreement at a special session but not on the 26-page political declaration on future relations negotiating at the same time, the maneuver that has led to confusion among MPs.
As May attempts to save the twice-defeated exit deal, thousands of people who oppose Brexit's postponement are expected to protest in central London with the Brexit Betrayal march led by the prominent player in the Breigit Nigel campaign Faraday, which ends outside parliament.
Against the background of chaos, May agrees with the EU to postpone Brexit from initially scheduled March 29 to April 12, with an extra delay until May 22 if it can get a divorce package ratified by lawmakers this week.
"It really is the last chance we have to vote for Brexit, as we understand it," said Liam Fox, the Trade Minister who supports Brexit's mother. Maybe she promised to leave if her deal was accepted, but even that could not immediately win many Brexit supporters in her party. They argue that her deal leaves Britain too closely linked to the EU.
The uncertainty surrounding Brexit, Britain's most important political and economic move since World War II, has left the allies and investors.
Opponents are afraid Brexit will make the UK poorer and split the West as it fights with Donald Trump's unconventional US presidency and growing confidence from Russia and China. Brexit's supporters say that while divorce can lead to some short-term instability, in the long run this will allow the United Kingdom to thrive if it frees itself from what it throws as a doomed attempt at European unity.
If the government wins the vote, it believes it will meet the conditions set by the EU to delay the UK's exit from the bloc by May 22. These conditions were set at the European Council summit on 21 March. 19659004] However, the result will not meet the criteria in British legislation for formal ratification of the source package. The government acknowledges this in its proposal.
In order to ratify the withdrawal agreement, the government is required to obtain parliamentary approval for both the withdrawal agreement and the political declaration on future relations. Therefore another vote will be needed. Writing by Guy Falconbridge and Alistair Smutt; Editing by Angus MacSwan
