Brexit: EU prepares to grant UK three-month extension
Politics

EU agrees to extend Brexit until 31 January 

EU leaders have agreed in principle to extend Brexit until 31 January 2020. It means the UK will not leave as planned on Thursday.

Donald Tusk said it was a “flextension” – meaning the UK could leave before the deadline if a deal was approved by parliament. 

Despite the prime minister insisting the UK will leave the EU on 31 October with or without a deal, the law – known as the Benn Act- requires him to accept the EU Brexit extension.

News of the Brexit extension comes as MPs prepare to vote on proposals by the PM for a December general election. The SNP and the Lib Dems have also proposed an election on 9 December. 

According to a No 10 source, the government would introduce a bill “almost identical” to the Lib Dem/SNP option on Tuesday if Labour votes their plan down, and “we will have a pre-Christmas election anyway.”

Boris is trying to persuade MPs to agree to a new timetable for his Brexit deal legislation and an election on Thursday 12 December.
