British PM calls for clean Brexit break
LONDON - Prime Minister Theresa May says that Britain plans to make a clean break from the European Union and not opt for "anything that leaves us half-in, half-out."
In a major speech today, May said Britain won't "hold on to bits of membership," nor seek associate or partial membership of the bloc.
She says Britain will forge a "new and equal partnership" with Europe.
Britons voted to leave the EU in a referendum in June.
Setting out her vision for Britain, May said she wanted her country to emerge "stronger, fairer, more united and more outward-looking than before."
She also said that Britain's parliament will get to vote on a final Brexit deal.
