BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Luxembourg finance minister Pierre Gramegna told the Luxembourg Times paper that it was “unthinkable” Britain would delay its departure from the European Union beyond the European Parliament 23-26 May elections.

European Union leaders will consider pressing Britain to delay Brexit by at least a year to find a way through its domestic deadlock, the chair of the EU summit said on Thursday.
