Last night the EU27 (The EU Council made up of the leaders of each EU Country) met – and offered the UK a six and a half months extension until October 31st – or Halloween.
There will be review of the extension, and the UK’s progress in June.
The UK can leave earlier if a deal is ratified before then.
The UK can choose if it will take place in European Parliamentary Elections in May – however, Theresa May hopes an agreement will be ratified by the two Houses of the UK Parliament before then.
Donald Tusk has told Theresa May that she must not waste this time, in what is likely to be the last article 50 extension.
And apparently, because most of the newspapers think this is newsworthy – if only to bring down to Theresa May. Theresa and Angela Merkel shared a joke over their dress sense – as they both worse pretty much the same outfits.
A correction was made to this article, I originally wrote that the EU Parliamentary Elections were in June, that is when they will open the EU Parliament for the new term; the Elections take place in May 2019.
