Never can say goodbye? UK parliament asks EU for Brexit delay

British MPs have voted overwhelmingly to ask the EU to delay Brexit for at least three months. The UK is due to leave the European Union in 15 days with no deal after PM Theresa May's withdrawal agreement was rejected by MPs twice. Today, 412 MPs voted in favour of the government requesting an extension from the EU, while 202 voted against. The EU has warned there must be a credible reason for a delay. So how should the rest of the 27 respond?
