From the European Parliament Brexit’s coordinator to several MPs, here are the reactions to Theresa May’s expected announcement that the Brexit vote will be delayed.
I can’t follow anymore. After two years of negotiations, the Tory government wants to delay the vote. Just keep in mind that we will never let the Irish down. This delay will further aggravate the uncertainty for people & businesses. It’s time they make up their mind! #brexit

I could have sworn that only yesterday you guys were saying renegotiating the deal was ‘unicorn fantasyland’. https://t.co/gSVjaOj5L9

Arriving back at Westminster and the news is that the PM has listened to concerns expressed over the #WAdeal and is heading to Brussels. It’s clear that she is acting in the national interest and standing up for Britain. The @Conservatives are the only party now backing #Brexit.
