French foreign minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, said on Sunday that, as things stand, the European Union would not grant Britain an extension beyond October 31st to negotiate its exit from the EU.
“It’s very worrying. The British must tell us what they want,” Jean-Yves Le Drian told Europe 1 radio.
Asked if an extension beyond the current deadline was possible, Le Drian said not under current conditions. “We are not going to do this every three months,” he said.
If this indeed the case, it means that in the event of a no deal scenario, UK prime minister Boris Johnson will not be able to postpone Brexit as the so-called "remainers" want.
