Today is called Friday.
The European Union has reportedly offered April Fools’ Day 2020 as a new Brexit date should Theresa May’s deal fail to succeed on a mooted third attempt to get it through Parliament, assuming Remain MPs move to stop a No Deal on exit on April 12th.
Brexit was originally scheduled to take place on Friday, March 29th, with or without a deal, but the Prime Minister has now delayed it in concert with the European Council — despite promising she would not do so 108 times, and her own MPs and party National Convention voting against it — so it will either take place on May 22nd if her deal is approved by Parliament, or April 12th on No Deal terms if it is not.
It is widely expected that the Remainer-dominated House of Commons will not allow No Deal to take place on April 12th whatever happens to the deal, however, and reportsindicate that should they seek a long extension of the Article 50 negotiating period to find a new way forward — likely via a second referendum or a general election acting as a proxy for one — the EU will offer April Fools’ Day 2020 as the new deadline.
NIGEL FARAGE has issued a dire warning to MPs on the outrage that would be felt around the country on the morning of March 30, a day after the UK was meant to leave the EU.
LBC host Nigel Farage insisted the gap between the political class and the people would continue to widen as Brexit continues. He added MPs should be wary of an increase in anger, frustration and potential abuse from constituents after March 30 who believe their representatives have let them down with Brexit. Mr Farage said: “If you think and I am addressing this to our political class.
“If you think you are already getting upset, anger and maybe even a little bit of abuse from your constituents who are frustrated and angry because their will isn’t being carried out.
“Wait until people wake up on the morning of March the 30th and realise we haven’t left the European Union.
“I think this gap between the politicians and the people is going to get bigger.”
Brexit shambles LAID BARE: Clueless MPs admit ‘we’ve got NO IDEA what we’re voting for’
NIGEL EVANS has claimed all MPs know about tomorrow “is that it is called Friday” as Parliamentarians prepare to debate the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal again in the Commons.
Today is called Friday. And that’s about as much as I know about it as well.
