Unable to convince enough of her Conservatives and their Northern Irish allies to back the deal, May last week made a decision to try finding a compromise with the main opposition Labour Party.
The Prime Minister was given a slim lifeline with the 27 adding a break clause saying the United Kingdom can leave earlier if she can convince MPs to pass a Brexit deal - but Brussels will not reopen the Withdrawal Agreement to make that easier.
The Wednesday evening European Union summit ran into the wee hours of Thursday after staunch opposition from French President Emmanuel Macron to a longer postponement of Brexit swung the balance in favor of the October 31 compromise. Meanwhile it's been stressed that the country will have to hold European Parliament elections if it is still an EU member between May 23 and 26.
They fear that the delay might be prolonged yet again - and the extra time used to engineer a softer form of Brexit, or even see it annulled outright.
British Prime Minister Theresa May on Thursday faced tough questioning from lawmakers about the latest Brexit developments, including a call to resign, after she returned from Brussels with a new Brexit extension.
Asked by a veteran Conservative Brexiteer, Bill Cash, whether she would quit over what he called an "abject surrender" to Brussels, May said with a laugh: "I think you know the answer to that".
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the new delay represented a "diplomatic failure" and typified May's "mishandling of the entire Brexit process". "I genuinely believe right now this nation, we are lions led by donkeys", Mr Farage said.
Farage said on Friday that he will stand for the Brexit Party in the European Parliament elections, along with several other candidates including Annunziata Rees-Mogg, the sister of prominent pro-Brexit Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg.

In recent days, soldiers protected demonstrators from other security services that were attempting to disperse them. Government officials said 38 people had died since December but Human Rights Watch said the number was higher.
European leaders yesterday agreed with Britain to delay Brexit by up to six months, saving the continent from what could have been a chaotic no-deal departure at the end of this week.
Votes in the fractious House of Commons have shown that none of the alternatives to May's agreement - such as leaving with no deal, a referendum or a much closer post-Brexit economic relationship - can yet muster a majority.
"The timetable is clear", said May, who had said earlier in the day she hoped the deal could be ratified as soon as May 22, which would avoid the need for Britain to participate in elections for the European Parliament. The two sides said they would resume their discussions Thursday. Under party rules, she's technically safe from a leadership challenge until the end of the year.
Labour, which seeks to retain close economic ties with the European Union after Brexit, accuses the government of failing to offer concrete changes to its Brexit blueprint.
May secured a second extension to October 31 at a European Council meeting in Brussels that only ended in the early hours of Thursday.
"The clock has run down and Britain has been left in limbo", he said. "Nobody has to stay but it is also a home and we are not going to kick anyone out".
Labour MP Hilary Benn, chairman of the Brexit select committee, said it was a "costly price" to pay for the PM's negotiating stance of keeping No Deal on the table.
