A warning knell from Prof Philip Allott about a potential legal trap door in the extension and why A50 revocation is preferable to a #FinalSay @JolyonMaugham @syrpis @GeorgePeretzQC @JMPSimor @ProfKAArmstrong

2/ “If the UK notification of its intention to withdraw from the EU is not revoked before 12 April or 22 May, it would be possible to conclude a new ad hoc agreement with the European Council..
3/ ..creating the possibility of genuine further negotiation, with or without time-limits that are compatible with the object and purpose of Article 50”
4/. “It is difficult to say how or when a senior national court or the European Court of Justice could apply their forensic minds to this problem of the legality of the new time-limits. It might be after the illegitimate automatic withdrawal had occurred.”
5/. “If the time-limits in the agreement of 21 March were held to be unlawful and invalid under EU law and UK law, the UK would then continue to be, or would retroactively become again, a member state of the EU.”
6/ “Of course, the government of the UK, as an improbably surviving EU member state, could thereafter notify the European Council of a newly formed UK intention to withdraw.
7/. “Article 50 would then be applicable again, with its two-year time-limit from the date of a new notification, together with the power to extend the period of negotiation. We could have any number of reprises of Brexit.”
I found this blog a bit confusing and I am not sure whether I have missed key issues or simply insufficiently expert in this field.

Hence asking the opinion of those who ARE expert.
