British Prime Minister Theresa May was Friday expected to tell the European Union she will stick to her Brexit timetable despite a landmark court ruling throwing her plans into jeopardy.May is likely to tell European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in a phone call Friday morning that Britain will press ahead with the divorce process as planned after June's seismic referendum vote to quit the 28-member bloc.The decision raises the prospect of a protracted parliamentary debate before then -- in a chamber that overwhelmingly opposed Brexit -- although EU leaders themselves have urged a swift departure.Most members of parliament wanted to stay in the EU, but commentators believe there is no majority support for reversing the referendum result.The case challenged the government's right to use "historic prerogative powers" -- a type of executive privilege -- to trigger Article 50, which begins a two-year countdown to exiting the EU.
