DW: on all points
  • The bill, put forward by Labour lawmaker Yvette Cooper, would force Prime Minister Theresa May to ask the EU for an extension to stop a no-deal Brexit. The measure passed by a vote of 313-312 in the lower chamber, the House of Commons.
  • regional parties for Scotland [SNP] and Wales [Plaid Cymru], together with the Greens, Liberal Democrats and Independents, called for a second referendum on Brexit
  • Jean-Claude Juncker dismissed May's request for an Brexit extension until May 22. The EU has given the UK government until next week to come up with a plan. Failing that, it would crash out of the bloc on April 12 without a deal in place.
