There is now a concerted push to extend the Article 50 deadline, effectively delaying Brexit in a last ditch move by Brussels and Remain MPs to stop a proper EU exit or kill off leaving completely.
Brussels would be prepared to discuss extending Article 50 in order to a avoid a No Deal Brexit, according to The Telegraph.
It is proof of how the UK does have leverage: those across Europe would much prefer a deal to No Deal. The British government should have pushed this a lot harder in the negotiations.
Of course this will be huge a concern to Brexiteers who have been promised time and time again that the country would Brexit on 29th March 2019, as Theresa May has repeated recently.
It isn’t just Brussels putting forward the idea of locking the UK into the EU for even longer. Labour MP Lisa Nandy told ITV’s Peston last night: “We’ve got to seek an extension of Article 50 in order to get the time in order to involve Parliament and the public in what comes next.”

And it isn’t just Labour. Tory MP Sarah Wollaston used a speech in Parliament to call for Article 50 to be extended as she pushes for a second referendum.
The pro-EU establishment are exposing more and more their total disregard for the will of the people. For a further delay to the UK leaving the EU would cause uproar. The British public want a proper Brexit delivered, as promised.
