Brussels hints: it may need to request its own extension

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Well well well!

It looks like the EU may request an extension from the UK from 31st of December over fears it may not finalise a FTD!

:lol:

Do you think Boris should play nice? 8)

It’s great to see the shoe on the other foot for a change! :D

It was always going to take longer than 1 year to reach an agreement, so the EU is letting Boris know ahead of time and if Boris refuses to extend, than the blame will rest with Boris. So the EU has put Boris in the corner and must act if he wants an agreement. But we all know, that Boris wants a no deal agreement. The EU is in the clear of any blame.

Blame?

Politically, Boris may not have a choice, as he will have to weigh up the political cost.

he won on a mandate of getting this done without getting bogged down for years in this endless shit show. If the EU don't get their act together and have a FTD despite his best efforts, then I doubt he will get much of the blame.

The EU and the UK have been together for 40 years. All UK and EU trade regulations have already been harmonized. I don't see why it should take more than a year because everything is largely already in place.

If BORIS is going to go against his own legislation which he passed as a show of intent to the British People who voted for him, then the EU better have a very solid excuse because Boris can't just keep extending. :wink:

the EU will have to apply to British Parliament for the extension so that British MPs have a vote on whether they should extend. So Boris will wait for the application then? :wink:
