... meaning No Deal happens by default before a GE happens
- VONC passes on Tue 3 Sept
- 14 days expire Tue 17 Sept
- 🇬🇧 crashes out of 🇪🇺 31 Oct
- GE on 31 Oct or 7 Nov
how would it play out?
Even in 🇬🇧's weird political times that would be bonkers.
Even the tabloids wouldn't stomach that.
Not let the Commons pass a law to extend, and let UK crash out during an election?
When the UK Govt's own Yellowhammer plan predicts chaos?
Even *if* no alternative is available, and a General Election would happen ASAP, there is no way MPs - even Tory ones! - would allow a crash out in the mid-campaign
