In view of the rejection of the Withdrawal Agreement by the House of Commons, I have decided to call a European Council on 10 April. #Brexit

Brexit: What just happened?

– A shorter delay until 12 April if they reject it. By that time the UK must set out its next steps – either another extension or leaving without a deal

But the EU says a further extension beyond 12 April is only possible if the UK agrees to hold European elections on 23 May.

According to European Commission President Juncker, with European Council President Tusk at his side, „all options remain on the table … the UK government will still have a chance of a deal, no deal, a long extension or revoking Article 50“. Or of course a People’s Vote!

Theresa May Brexit letter IN FULL: Read Brexit letter to Donald Tusk in FULL here

THERESA MAY has asked the EU for a three-month delay to Brexit in the hopes of finding a way to get her deal through Parliament. Read the full letter she sent to European Council President Donald Tusk below.

„A long extension“ It’s obvious what game is being played here. The EU (aided by many within the UK establishment) is doing its damnedest to subvert the referendum result. If we don’t leave on 29 March, our democracy may not recover for a very long time.

Donald Tusk not only unfairly attacked Brexiteers yesterday, but reminded us the EU is anti-democratic

There’s no way that this was an off the cuff intervention from Tusk. It was clearly planned. If you watch him making the remarks on our video, you can see him referring to written notes while he said it. And he then happily tweeted the words out afterwards – prompting an equally inappropriate response from MEP Guy Verhofstadt.

And then to rub salt into the wound, at the end of the press conference, Varadkar is caught saying: “They’ll give you terrible trouble in the British press for that”, to which Tusk replies: “Yes, I know” and laughs.

I have decided to call #EUCO on #Brexit (Art. 50) on Thursday. We will not renegotiate the deal, including the backstop, but we are ready to discuss how to facilitate UK ratification. As time is running out, we will also discuss our preparedness for a no-deal scenario.

Looking at latest decisions of @realDonaldTrump someone could even think: with friends like that who needs enemies. But frankly, EU should be grateful. Thanks to him we got rid of all illusions. We realise that if you need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of your arm.
