Excluding something remarkably unconventional occurring tonight, one thing can be told with any validity is Britain will not be leaving the European Union at the end of this week.
The new deadline for Brexit Day has been fixed on 12th April, if Theresa May crashed to win support for her pulling back agreement following her first request to the remaining 27 EU member states for extra time -think back the UK should have left the bloc on 29 March.
EU side leaders are executing clearly that they still willing about Britain to have a methodical departure and are against withdrawal deal, despite raising frustration at Brexit pulling up so much of their time and attention. The EU27 do not want to be executed to have forced Britain out, because that would risk them being accused of any economic or social upsettings prompted by a no-deal.
So, the two things should be observed while EU leaders meet with the extension they agree to offer to the UK and the circumstances they attach.
The most outstanding consequence is a flexible extension until the end of this year or into spring 2020 – the perspective is what Donald Tusk, the President of the European Council, is advocating. A small number of nations – including France, Spain, Greece, Austria, and Slovenia are believed to favor a shorter time frame of the end of June, as requested by Mrs. May. This is because of worry about the potential for Britain to interrupt EU decision making such as on budgets and hiring new commissioners if given a prolonged deadline for the departure.
