LONDON, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Former British defence minister Michael Fallon said on Tuesday that it may be in Britain’s interests to delay leaving the European Union so negotiators can agree a better divorce deal.
“This is not a good deal and we need a better deal,” Fallon told BBC radio in an interview.
“And if it’s possible to get a better deal, to send the negotiators back to Brussels for two or three months — even to postpone the actual leaving date for two or three months — I still think that would be the long-term interest of the country.”
Fallon said he did not believe ousting Prime Minister Theresa May would help the situation. (Reporting by Andy ; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
