April 12 will be June 30 Again: EU Accepts Brexit Postponement
April 12 will be June 30 Again: EU Accepts Brexit Postponement. The EU accepts grinding teeth postponement for the Brexit, so May’s newest request to leave the EU until 30 June is likely to be met. EU leaders do not want to be the bad guys who are definitively pushing the British out of the Union.
For two years, March 29, 2019, was the day for which the United Kingdom would leave the EU. Date set, following the European Treaty. Then it became April 12, a postponement at the request of London.
On Friday, Prime Minister Theresa May again asked her EU colleagues – “it is frustrating” – to postpone it until 30 June, but it opens the door ajar to fall 2019 or spring 2020. London’s incompetence is gradually not affecting the credibility of the EU on?
According to the liberal leader of the European Parliament Guy Verhofstadt is. “Enough is enough,” was his message this week to London and his fellow parliamentarians.
The EU would do well to get the UK divided into the bone out of the Union as quickly as possible. “The architects of the Brexit disaster should no longer have any influence on the crucial decisions that the EU stands for,” said Verhofstadt.
He has an ally in French president Emmanuel Macron, also a liberal. It was Macron who argued for the “guillotine” at the last EU summit on 21 March: 12 April should be the cliff edge date if the British had not yet come to terms they just jumped down the cliffs. With their entire economy.
