My question is does she *have to* present the extension to the EU Council or she can decide to present the request to extend.
Just imagine the reaction from the Daily Mail commentariat lol.
That would be amazing.
Nah, the Daily Mail and Sun headlines basically write themselves if they do that, skyrocketing EU resentment with the public.
He won't deny it, because he know it will fail and give May a mandate to pursue a long extension (and later a 2nd ref). Remember, MV3 is being presented as Deal vs Long Delay.
No deal would have such devastating consequences in the short term that it would rattle the entire global economy (including everyone in the EU) and everyone knows it. If one country were to defect theyd lose the trust of the entire EU.
I can't get over the fact that she represents one of the most Remain leaning constituencies in the country.
May said eArlier in the week there would be indicative votes? Or did they just change their mind after the no deal vote? Fucking cunts
What's a "Remain leaning constituency"?
Yep, it's sickening that the Tories have managed to divert so much of the nation's attention away from the literal death they are causing through benefit cuts and freezes. Unless we miraculously don't leave then there's a fair chance that we won't see any meaningful (good) change on that front for a decade or more.Brexit is all consuming so I'm not surprised the Spring statement has basically gone right under the rug, but:
Benefits freeze hits 10 million poor families, but top 0.1%'s wealth swells
Tory economics at it again.
£152m funding from EU to help Stoke and surrounding area. Good luck getting that from the government
Better do it now than later when it drops real bad. It's at 1.31 against the USD right now iirc, was at 1.33 yesterday.
