And the relevant part of Article 50 is shown here - unanimous agreement of EU-27 needed to extend
BUT No Deal #Brexit is the thing both sides should absolutely fear, especially 🇬🇧 but even the 🇪🇺, whose Member States (especially 🇮🇪) would take a major GDP hit.
Even a negotiation delay is dangerous just now - the Brexit timetable is already so tight.
Q1: You need unanimity to extend Art 50 - would you get that?
A: The EU-27 does not want a No Deal Brexit. If that were the alternative you would.
A: Do you want No Deal Brexit and a hard border in Ireland? Do not forget here that no hard border in 🇮🇪 is 🇪🇺's number 1 priority.
A: In comparison to a No Deal Brexit this is a pretty low price to pay. The MEPs and Commissioner would leave when 🇬🇧 leaves.
A: There are plenty of Brexiters and Remain people who would be only too ready to stand - 🇪🇺 politics matters like never before in 🇬🇧.
A: The proposed transition period just postpones the problems, and denies 🇬🇧 citizens a voice in 🇪🇺, potentially for an indefinite period. That is a democratic scandal.
