EU will delay Brexit until February if Johnson fails to ratify deal this week - The Sunday Times

Sun, 20th Oct 2019 18:30

Oct 20 (Reuters) - The Sunday Times has reported http://bit.ly/2p1UfbJ
that the European Union will delay Brexit until February 2020
if Prime Minister Boris Johnson is unable to get his deal past
parliament this week.

The delay would be "fungible", meaning that Britain could
leave earlier, on Nov. 1 or 15, December or January, if his deal
is ratified before the extension ends, the newspaper said,
citing diplomatic sources.

No decision will be taken until EU governments have the
chance to assess the chances of the withdrawal treaty getting
through parliament before Tuesday this week, the newspaper
added.

EU diplomats and officials told Reuters on Sunday that,
depending on the next developments in London, extension options
range from just an additional month until the end of November to
half a year or longer.
