Brexit : No Deal Brexit takes a step closer

Today,

May has sent a letter to Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, requesting a 3 month extension of the Brexit Departure Date.

Tusk responds saying she CAN have a limited extension to the end of May, PROVIDED the UK Parliament votes to pass the Withdrawal Agreement. I don't think May was expecting that proviso.

For the Brexiteers in Parliament, they've reacted with glee, as they see an opportunity to exit on March 29 after all.

What we are left with now is brinksmanship. where utter stupidity will see the UK crash out. Who will blink first ?





The development comes exactly 1,000 days after the referendum of 23 June 2016, which delivered a 52%-48% majority for leaving the EU.

The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, has warned that Brussels will want a good reason to grant a long delay to Brexit.

In an apparent reference to options like a second referendum, general election or cross-party consensus, he said that a lengthy extension "needs to be linked to something new ... a new event or a new political process".

Any request for extra time is subject to unanimous approval by leaders of the remaining 27 EU states at a meeting in Brussels tomorrow.

6. can the irish say "eff you were are in the eu?"

I realize it will risk violence, but there is no reason Ireland could be cut off, especially since they could gain at London's expense.

7. I have no doubt that the EU have plans in place to make sure

Ireland aren't cut off, but it would definitely mean a physical border in the north, and that means trouble. The Irish government have pushed through emergency laws in n the event of a no deal Brexit, which is being aided by the opposition parties m

4. How does this fit with...

... the strategy of putting forward a vote referrendum with the choices....

1) LEAVE given a single, specific proposal
2) STAY

It's both a revote of 2016 and a public authorization of the best proposal that they can muster.
