I'm cautiously optimistic the Benn Act is now dead
The deadline was Saturday and Johnson was supposed to send a letter to Brussels asking for an extension until February 1, 2020.
With the looming deal he doesnt have to send it and instead Parliament is going to vote on how and not if - to leave.
Since no one wants a no-Brexit situation, were now likely to have Brexit with a deal in place.
It’s highly possible. however, remember the Juncker is still only the commission President - the chief bureaucrat. The real decision makers, the Executive, is the Council of Leaders - the Macrons, Merkels, Morawiecki, Varadkar and Orban.
Juncker can say what he likes, but it is up to the 27 to decide whether to give an extension or not.
I sure hope that the UK parliament realizes this is the best they can get and they approve this withdrawal agreement.
Then the UK can get down to the real trade deal negotiations
We need to see the fine print. Might require approval by parliament, which would be a built in stop-brexit mechanism for the globalists.
And remember, any “delay” is mean’t to kill brexit in one way or another and that’s why both EU and UK non-patriots love the idea so much. See May, Blair, the Traitor (Speaker) et al.
