Theresa May's plan for another Brexit delay has gone down badly in Europe

France, which has taken a firmer line over Britain's demands, floated the idea of offering only a two-week extension, in order to prepare financial markets for Britain leaving the EU without a negotiated deal.
The other option, floated by Germany, was to demand more information from May, in order to justify offering a longer extension.

There was no support, it would appear, for the UK's suggested June 30 date.

[emphasis added]

Reading the rest of the article it becomes clear to me  we're again seeing the UK government totally oblivious to the reality of the situation.  Unquoted bits of the article make me think the EU isn't going to put its political credibility on the line to save May and the Tory Party.  

I'm thinking she's going to get turned down.
