    Default Brexit day March 29th was written into Law

    Wasn't it? Has it been redacted? Is parliament about to break the law?
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    The 29th March is no more, it was voted through last night.

    The new date is 12th April.

    Whose law? And do you mean Brexit Day, or Exit Day?

    International Law trumps UK Law. International Law has already changed the date as per the EU dates. UK Law caught up last night.

    In the first scenario, that is, if the withdrawal agreement is passed by the House of Commons next week, the European council agrees to an extension until the 22nd of May.

    In the second scenario, that is, if the withdrawal agreement is not approved by the House of Commons next week, the European council agrees to an extension until the 12th of April, while expecting the United Kingdom to indicate a way forward. What this means in practice is that, until that date, all options will remain open, and the cliff-edge date will be delayed.

    The UK government will still have a choice of a deal, no-deal, a long extension or revoking article 50.

    So, if the WA does not pass tomorrow, a long article 50 extension would still be an option, provided the UK takes part in the European elections.


    If the UK were to pass the deal after tomorrow, but before 12 April (the last date for deciding that the UK will participate in the European elections), it is conceivable that the EU could revive the 22 May deadline, but that is not certain.
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
