Britain's Theresa May won a temporary reprieve from rival factions within her own party Friday by striking an overnight agreement with the European Union that some business leaders hope will increase prospects of an orderly exit from the bloc. After all-night negotiations and a morning dash to Brussels by May, she and EU Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker agreed to start talking about trade and a post-Brexit transition period, declaring "sufficient progress" had been made on the cost and terms of the separation.The Conservative Party's historical divisions over Britain's relationship with the EU had threatened to erupt earlier in the week when a carefully choreographed announcement of a deal spectacularly collapsed after the small Northern Irish party propping up her government objected to the terms.The agreement was endorsed by both Conservative Brexiteers and Remainers – both of which can count on enough supporters to undermine, and possibly even topple, May after her gamble on a June snap election backfired and stripped the party of a parliamentary majority.Former Finance Minister George Osborne, sacked by May in 2016, once described her pledge to run again as leader at the next election as something similar to seeing "the living dead in a second-rate horror film".
