We don’t know how long the Brexit extension will be

BoJo on the ‘naughty step’

DUP leader Arlene Foster says she has sent the PM to the naughty step.

The Northern Irish party are dead-set against Johnson’s current withdrawal agreement.

In a speech on October 26 she said: “Rather than have Boris with us today we have had to send him to the naughty step in parliament twice in the last week.

“On Brexit, we will not give support to the government when we believe they are fundamentally wrong…we will use our votes to defeat them.”

Blair backs no-deal promise

Ex PM Tony Blair has called for new labour to block no-deal Brexit from happening after Corbyn asked the PM to promise to never leave the EU without a deal.

Blair urged MPs to pass a law preventing no-deal.

Boris says Brexit could still happen on October 31

On December 12, the PMcalled for a snap election and demanded Jeremy Corbyn man up and agree to the election in a vote on Monday.

He also insisted itwas still possible to leave on October 31as the EU were still deciding an extension.

But Corbyn asked the PM to promise NEVER to take Britain out of the EU without a deal even if we cant get a trade deal sorted with the bloc in years to come before he backs an election.

However, the promise could sink the PM’s election vote as it’s something that he cannot actually guarantee.

Brexit extension agreed

EU bosses agreed to yet another Brexit extinction after Boris’s deal was rejected – but we don’t know how long for.

EU ambassadors gave thegreen light for a third Brexit extension on October 25.

MPs effectively killed off any chance of an exit at the end of the month by voting down the PM’s timetable for his Brexit bill earlier this week.

An EU source said that while all capitals agreed a delay would be given, there was no consensus yet over how long it should be.
