BERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday that some parts of British Prime Minister Theresa May’s proposal for a Brexit deal with the European Union worked well, but the crucial question of how to leave the single market remained complicated.

Asked during a panel discussion if Britain should have a second referendum on Brexit, Merkel said: “I believe that everything that happens there in Britain has to be decided by the British themselves.”
