Brexit would always require some very hard choices for the United Kingdom to make. It was never going to be all good and no bad. And those decisions now need to be made.</p><p>Brexit is not a problem of our creation. We do need to see resolution, I think, sooner rather than later. I don’t think this can drag on for months and years.</p><p>There hasn’t been a request for a long extension so I don’t think we can consider that at this stage.</p><p>No-deal can only ever be a British choice.</p><p>Let’s not forget the March 29th deadline was set by the UK in the first place. It’s always up to them, even at the last moment, to revoke article 50 unilaterally. </p> <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/politics/blog/live/2019/mar/21/brexit-latest-news-eu-summit-article-50-extension-theresa-may-appeal-to-nation-backfires-as-mps-accuse-her-of-stoking-hate-politics-live">Continue reading...</a> Cervical screening: DIY smear test could be 'game-changer' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-47649690 BBC News - Home urn:uuid:a2fbbd2d-e23f-ba97-e15a-3ce494dc7d94 Thu, 21 Mar 2019 13:18:50 +0000 Women who miss cervical screening appointments are being given home-testing kits in a pilot scheme.
