May Delays Brexit

Guy Verhofstadt, the European parliament's lead negotiator, told the European Parliament’s Committee on Constitutional Affairs yesterday that Brexit negotiations will be delayed: 
Possibly the next round of negotiation will be the last week of September because apparently there will be an important intervention by the British Prime Minister in the coming days, foreseen on September 21.
Needless to say social media is abuzz with speculation as to what this means:

-Brexit cancelled?
-£50BN Brexit bill agreed?
-Another referendum? 

No, in my view this is simply a result of Theresa May and her minions over egging the contents and ramifications of a speech about Brexit that she is planning to make towards the end of September.

Well done Theresa, you've delayed the Brexit process again!
