Brexit extended until May 22nd

EU leaders have agreed to extend Brexit until May 22nd.

However, the British Prime Minister HAS to get the withdrawal agreement through the House of Commons.

EU leaders have agreed to extend Brexit until May 22nd – the day before European elections start.

But it’s conditioned on the UK passing the withdrawal deal next month.

This is clearly a move designed to ramp up pressure on MPs to vote for it.

But it might not work.

And if the deal doesn’t pass all bets are off.

There could be a no deal Brexit. There could be a vote of no confidence in Theresa May’s government. There could be a long Brexit extension. Or a second referendum. Or it may stop Brexit from happening at all.

One things for sure, it will be one of the biggest weeks in British political history.
