Citing a French presidency official, Reuters recently reported that the EU27 would agree to a "technical short extension" to Article 50 Brexit negotiation period if the UK parliament were to approve PM May's Brexit deal next week.
Key quotes (via Reuters)
- No point in Brexit delay without clear plan.
- France is concerned about implications of a long extension.
- If UK parliament rejects deal next week and no clear alternative emerge, a no-deal scenario would prevail.
- A long extension to Article 50 would only be acceptable if UK puts forwards clear alternative such as referendum or election.
