Interesting. Want to know how the EU feels about it? Check out my latest for @instituteforgov:…
1. Inevitable: Most in EU think some form of extension is now inevitable. PM is in intensive care, chief negotiators are self-isolating. It is not clear negotiations will happen virtually - and lots of worry that businesses won't be able to adapt both to COVID & new UK-EU regime.
2. Process: it will be up to the UK-EU joint committee (JC) to decide terms (length, ££ contributions to EU budget, etc) by 1 July. EU must also secure member states' approval *before* it agrees to anything in the joint committee. Talks in JC and in EU27 won't be straightforward.
3. Running out of time: problem is that the joint committee is not meeting again until June. That's VERY close to 1 July extension deadline. Not clear at all UK & EU cd agree extension after July. Basically: EU want talks to begin soon.
4. Joint decision: EU27 wd quite like the UK to request an extension. But they know it's a tricky sell in UK. Solution? JC discusses terms. UK & EU then jointly endorse extension at planned high level conference in June (which is when they plan to take stock of talks). Simples.
5. Anyway read it here:…
