UK's Theresa May seeks respite from Brexit walking in Wales

Associated Press |

LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister Theresa May is getting a respite from Brexit with a walking holiday in Wales.

The prime minister's Downing Street office says May and her husband, Philip, started a short vacation on Saturday.

Parliament is on an Easter break until . Division in the House of Commons over Brexit brought months of bruising battles that didn't stop lawmakers from rejecting May's European Union divorce deal three times.

May enjoys hiking in the Welsh countryside. During a visit there in 2017, she infamously decided to call a snap election to strengthen her hand in Brexit negotiations. Instead, she lost her parliamentary majority and has struggled ever since to push through her EU withdrawal plans.

Asked Monday whether May is considering another election, spokesman James Slack said: "No."
